Middle-aged people will be encouraged to get more sleep as part of a government campaign to help them live more healthy lifestyles and reduce the risk of serious illness.
Public Health England is planning to encourage adults between the ages of 40 and 60 to spend more time in bed as part of a wide-ranging campaign to boost the nation’s health.
“More than a third of the population sleeps for less than six hours a night which raises their risk of early death by 12 per cent according to Sleep Council.”
So if you reduce your sleep time by 25%, from 8 hours to 6 hours, you get to see 13% more of life & most of it when you’re young enough to enjoy it.
Sounds like a no-brainer, to me.
