Other ways to aid sleep loss
One simple self-help tip to remedy sleep loss is to keep regular sleep hours.
According to the NHS, this programmes the brain and internal body clock to get used to a set routine.
The health site explains: “Most adults need between six and nine hours of sleep every night. By working out what time you need to wake up, you can set a regular bedtime schedule.”
It is also important to try and wake up at the same time every day.
While it may seem like a good idea to try to catch up on sleep after a bad night, doing so on a regular basis can also disrupt your sleep routine, warns the NHS.
