Does counting sheep really help you to fall asleep?

Counting sheep has traditionally been used as a way of overcoming insomnia, with references dating back to more than 150 years ago. Normal advice is to picture a line of sheep jumping over a fence one by one keeping a tally as they go- but will this process really help you fall to sleep faster or is it just folklore? One theory is that the idea originated when early sheep herders couldn’t get to sleep at night because they were worried about all of the sheep in their field. They would relax by counting the herd up to make sure they were all safe. Does this work in a modern day situation with modern farmers? An animal scientist, who works at the USDA’s Sheep Experiment Station and counts real sheep in day to day life, was asked whether the task induces sleepiness. His response: “I tried counting sheep once when i couldn’t sleep and no, it didn’t help me fall asleep … It’s hard to imagine sheep jumping a fence because it’s not something they do unless you don’t want them to….” Sleep scientists have discovered that imagining a pleasant and relaxing scene will help induce sleepiness better than counting sheep. Harvey & Payne (2001)  asked 50 insomniacs to try different distraction techniques on certain nights, to see which helped them fall asleep more quickly. One group conjured up a tranquil and relaxing scene such as a waterfall or being on holiday, while a second were asked to think of a distraction such as counting sheep. A third group were left to their own devices. On average, those picturing a relaxing scene fell asleep over 20 minutes earlier...

Does cheese really give you nightmares?

An often cited warning before bed time is to avoid cheese as it gives you nightmares, but is there any evidence to prove this? A study by the British Cheese Board investigated this question in 2005, with some very interesting results… The first finding of the study was that no, eating cheese before bed won’t increase your risk of having nightmares. The team tested this by giving 100 male and 100 female participants 20 grams of cheese half an hour before they went to bed. This was done over the course of a week, and each participant was assigned to one of six types of British cheese – Stilton, Cheddar, Red Leicester, British Brie, Lancashire and Cheshire. The participants were asked to record everything they remembered about their dreams and how well they slept as soon as they woke up the next morning. The team reported that 67% of the participants remembered their dreams, but not a single one could remember having a nightmare. They believed that this was likely to have been caused by the presence of tryptophan, an essential amino acid found in milk which is helpful in normalising sleep and reducing stress levels. Do different cheeses give people different types of dreams? The study also found that around 85% of female participants who were given a piece of Stilton before bed reported having crazy, vivid dreams including “talking soft toys, a vegetarian crocodile upset because it could not eat children, dinner party guests being traded for camels, soldiers fighting with each other with kittens instead of guns, and a party in a lunatic asylum”! Red Leicester, on...

New research into consumer attitudes to mattress purchases

The European Bedding Industries Association (EBIA) have just published the results of their latest research into consumers’ attitudes towards mattresses with some very interesting results. KEY FINDINGS 1. SLEEP IS CRITICAL  The UK tops the league of people who do not feel they get enough sleep at 45%. Additionally, 22% of the UK are dissatisfied with their quality of sleep with only the French being less satisfied at 30%.

PRICE PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE 60% of Europeans are willing to pay between £360 – £720 for a double mattress compared to only 50% of the UK. 37% of Europeans thought that this was a fair price to pay for a double mattress compared to only 33% of the UK. In practice 34% of Europeans and 30% of UK actually spent this amount. 4. INTERNET USE HAS SOARED  Compared to the 2011 European report, online research prior to purchase has soared from 20% to 34%. Online purchases accounted for 16% in the UK, much more than other European countries at 12%. Whilst 25-39 year olds consider buying online more than the other age-groups,...

The impact of cold weather on sleep

As Autumn makes way for winter, the cold weather can affect our health in a number of ways. For example, cases of cold and flu normally increase in winter and there are usually higher incidences of trips and falls due to the icy and slippery conditions. In addition to these issues, have you ever considered what impact the cold weather has on our sleeping patterns? During these colder months, you may discover that your sleep is interrupted or disturbed. Medical studies have shown that the impact of cold weather on sleep is directly proportional to the time spent in the cold. The human body has a natural ability to adapt to the weather but the sleep we experience during colder weather is generally unstable. Reasons for this include an increased need to urinate, more stress hormones in the body and a rise in blood pressure which is usually at its lowest level during sleep. This goes some way to explaining the rise in infections during winter. It has been recognised that although cold weather does not affect the deep stages of sleep, it reduces REM (Rapid Eye Movement). The REM stage of sleep is vital in helping the brain to relax and helps clear the mind. It also enhances concentration levels during the next day. Your sleep environment With sleep being so vital to our health and well-being, what can be done to alleviate the impact of the impending cold weather? Firstly, ensure a higher room temperature and keep your body warm throughout the night with warm sleepwear. This should help prevent aches and pains which often occur if...

World Alzheimer’s Day: Look out for early signs

September 21st is World Alzheimer’s Day, a day in which Alzheimer’s organisations around the world concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about the disease, as well as Dementia.   As we get older, we may find that memory loss becomes a problem. It’s normal for our memory to be affected by age, stress, tiredness, or certain illnesses and medications. This can be annoying if it happens occasionally, but if it’s affecting your daily life or is worrying you or someone you know, it may be a good idea to talk to your GP about the early signs of dementia. What is dementia? Dementia is a common condition. Your risk of developing dementia increases as you get older, and the condition usually occurs in people over the age of 65. Dementia is a syndrome (a group of related symptoms) associated with an ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities. This includes problems with: Memory loss Thinking speed Mental agility Language Understanding Judgement How common is dementia? According to the Alzheimer’s Society there are around 800,000 people in the UK with dementia. One in three people over 65 will develop dementia, and two-thirds of people with dementia are women. The number of people with dementia is increasing because people are living longer. 225,000 people will develop dementia this year (that’s one every three minutes). It is estimated that by 2021, the number of people with dementia in the UK will have increased to around 1 million. Why is it important to get a diagnosis? An early diagnosis can help people with dementia get the right treatment and support, and help those close...
