A lot of us ignore the fact, but a good night’s sleep is incredibly important to our health and well-being. Without a proper night’s sleep, concentration levels go down and irritability levels go up. There are also long term effects, such as poor immunity, increased weight, low sex drive and even diabetes and heart disease.
So how do you get a solid night’s sleep? Some things we’re already well aware of. Make sure your mattress is comfy, invest in some decent curtains, don’t leave televisions or radios on etc etc. However, new research shows a way you can dramatically improve things – always sleep on your left hand side.
