Sleep has a very big impact on our wellbeing. When we have too little sleep, or an irregular sleeping pattern, it can negatively affect our concentration, focus and memory. If you are tired or have been deprived of sleep, it is much harder for you to solve problems, link ideas together, and you can often feel quite down in the dumps as well.

But what can you do to help? Unfortunately your sleep is very unlikely to just improve overnight (pun definitely intended). You need to try and develop a good sleep hygiene routine – little changes to try and improve your overall quality of sleep.
