Bedtime procrastination 'on the rise'

The number of people who put off going to bed despite the fact they are tired is on the increase, the Sleep Council has revealed.

According to the organisation's Lisa Artis in her latest blog, a growing number of Britons could be suffering from sleep deprivation as a result of the myriad distractions that are now commonplace in modern life.

She cited a study from Utrecht University, where researchers have shown those individuals who put off going to bed could suffer from poorer general health and lesser ability to self-regulate and stick to routines.

Bedtime procrastination was defined as "failing to go to bed at the intended time, while no external circumstances prevent a person from doing so".

Individuals wishing to enjoy a more relaxing wind down before bedtime might like to invest in oxygen equipment for their home, which could help them drift off to a pleasant and peaceful night's sleep more easily.
