Breathing pure oxygen can help alleviate the effects of stress, which can otherwise have a debilitating impact on our sleep pattern.
According to Jillian Lavendar, director at LondonMeditationCentre.com, we need to ensure we get a good night's sleep so that we are fully-functional during the day.
However, allowing stress to build up during the waking hours can prevent us from falling into a deep sleep come night time.
She said: "When we are well rested, we are more able to deal with the demands of a hectic, fast-paced life in a balanced and creative way.
"When we become tired and stresses are allowed to build up in our system, one of the first things that is affected is our ability to sleep - the very thing that we need to come back into balance."
Symptoms of stress include headaches, racing thoughts, low mood and feeling unsociable.
Causes range from money problems and job worries to relationships and recent bereavement, so never let the condition go untreated.
