Winter and Sleep How the darker months can kill your sleep routine

Winter and Sleep  How the darker months can kill your sleep routine

winter_sleepThe winter months should, in theory, be the perfect time for great sleep – cold, dark nights that almost demand cosying up and settling down – but for many people they signal the opposite; restlessness and disrupted sleep that results in a daytime lethargy that’s hard to shake off. The first months of the year really can excel in fuelling a low mood, especially when the weather is less snow-covered Alpine postcard scene and more dull grey, relentlessly rainy and bone-chillingly windy.

From side-effects of the syndrome known as ‘seasonal affective disorder’ (‘SAD’) to the rather more vague feeling of ‘Winter Blues’, the darker months can often produce a malaise that directly results in poor quality sleep. With regular bouts of bad sleep your body and mind will soon begin to suffer, so it pays to be aware of how this time of year can slowly but surely take its toll.

Let’s take a look at some of the issues involved, and how to potentially deal with them.

Sleep and Memory How a Good Night Boosts Your Recall

Sleep and Memory  How a Good Night Boosts Your Recall

It’s well known that a good night’s sleep is one of the most effective ways to be at our best, both physically and mentally. One particular mental activity that is becoming increasingly linked to sleep quality is memory, from simple day-to-day recall to long-term historical memories stretching back several years. While the role that sleep plays in various aspects of memory has been a subject of debate for some time, it’s only recently that the strength of the connection is becoming evident.

How is Technology Affecting the Way You Sleep?

How is Technology Affecting the Way You Sleep?

Do you ever find yourself replying to texts and emails late at night? Or choosing to watch another episode of a TV show when you know you should go to bed? 

When artificial lighting was introduced to our everyday lives, it started affecting the way that we slept. Now, with more technology available at our fingertips than ever before, it can delay the time it takes us to fall asleep at night, and decrease the quality of our sleep once we do drift off.

Record-Breaking Froome Takes 2nd Tour de France Title

Last updated: Monday 27th July 2015

Record-Breaking Froome Takes 2nd Tour de France Title

Chris Froome has won the 2015 Tour de France, marking an historical achievement and firmly cementing himself amongst the legends of the race. The Team Sky star completed a gruelling three weeks of racing one minute and twelve seconds faster than Movistar’s Nairo Quintana, making him the first Brit to win the prestigious Tour twice. As well as the overall Tour win, Froome also finished with the King of the Mountains jersey, an achievement last recorded some forty-five years ago by Eddy Merckx and just the sixth time it has happened in the Tour’s long history.

The incredible win completed a dominant performance from Froome and Team Sky, in which he held the lead from stage seven onwards.

Minimalist Bedrooms How to Avoid a Clinical Look

Minimalist Bedrooms  How to Avoid a Clinical Look

minimalist bedroomsWhen considering colour schemes around the house, the bedroom isn’t the best place to get experimental. The wrong choice in the bedroom can trigger a sense of energy, creating a distraction that’s not what you need when you’re looking to wind down for the night. Worse still, a scheme that’s allowed to evolve randomly is likely to end up making the room feel too busy and claustrophobic.

Rather than a vibrant and exciting colour choice, neutrals and whites are the way to go in the bedroom. This is perfect for a minimalist and always-stylish look, but it comes with a risk of its own.

By taking the minimal approach too far the bedroom can end up with a clinical, sterile ambiance that’s just as inappropriate for relaxation as a busy and energetic space, if not more so. Remember that your bedroom is for sleep above everything else, and an oppressively clinical environment isn’t something to aspire to.

The good news is that it’s easy to take the edge off a minimalist look with a selection of bedroom accessories. A splash of considered colour and a subtle addition of texture can be all it needs to transform a minimalist bedroom from feeling like a hospital ward to a welcoming environment that retains its style. Here are four ways to achieve it.

Alternative Sleep Schedules Is polyphasic sleep safe?

Alternative Sleep Schedules  Is polyphasic sleep safe?

In a world where almost everyone is running around trying to balance their work and home responsibilities, whilst also fitting in exercise and even a social life in between, getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night can be a challenge for many people.

So it’s not surprising that people throughout history have tried to cope on less sleep (famously, Margaret Thatcher, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell were all said to get just four hours of sleep a night), or that many adults sleep in on weekends in an attempt to “catch up” with the hours they lost during the week. But some people have taken this to extreme levels, training themselves to cope on just two hours of sleep every 24 hours.

The Lunar Effect: How the Moon Affects Your Sleep

Gazing at the moon on a dark night can give an indescribable sense of wonder, calming all your senses and can put perspective on everything. This feeling of awe could fall into what is described as the ‘lunar effect’, which is the belief that the lunar cycle can influence the behaviour of animals and humans. Whilst a lunar effect may first appear to be a myth from ancient times, there is at least some scientific evidence to back up the theory – especially on the way you sleep.

Weird Sleep Experiments  Strange Journeys into the World of Sleep

Sleep remains one of the most mysterious elements of life, with scientists continuing to debate the most fundamental questions relating to the issue.

So perhaps it’s no surprise that over the years there have been some downright bizarre experiments into sleep.

Here are some of the weirdest, featuring a chanting man in a summer camp dormitory, a Clockwork Orange-style eye-opener, the ‘Pillownaut’ and a remarkable example of the power of the mind.
