Tick Tock, Tick Tock….Can’t sleep and need help? Sign up for Silentnight’s Sleep clinic – Plus a Goose Down Pillow Giveaway worth £79.99!

Did you know that sleepless nights cost the UK economy more than £600 million?

Sleep-deprived workers take 6 million sick days a year with the cost to the UK economy being £611 Million – a new survey has revealed.  It also show that Birmingham has the highest sleep related absences.

A survey by Silentnight of 2044 people has revealed that 1 in 5 (19%) has taken a sickie from work due to a bad nights sleep.

Only 13% said they had slept peacefully that night while 32% blamed having to get up early the next morning on their bad sleep, 26% blamed money worries and 26% blamed a stressful day at work.

The study also revealed that over half of those surveyed (44%) never enjoy a lie-in even at the weekend – with most in-ins lasting for only 30 minutes.  This doesn’t surprise me at all as I can’t remember my last lie-in and if I get the chance to have one I’m always woken up by the noise of the kids in the house.

Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, Silentnight’s sleep expert and sleep therapist at Capio Nightingale Hospital, said “Sleep is crucial to our health and well-being and it is clear from the findings that the lack of quality sleep is making a real impact on peoples lives – from absence from work, decreased concentration levels and arguments in the home.”

“A few simple steps can make a huge difference to getting a good night’s sleep.  Switching off from work and social media channels an hour before bed, taking the time to unwind, eating a balanced diet and making sure that our sleep environment is as tranquil as possible are all possible steps in the right direction.”

Silentnight has launched it’s first Sleep Clinic

  1. What's sleep? Due to different medical conditions, getting comfy enough to sleep takes hours, then I'm so annoyed that I can't sleep, I'd say 3 hours is a good night these days. One day I will get 8 hours a night, determined to!

  2. 5 and a half to 6 during the week and 7 if I'm lucky at the weekend 🙂 8 is too much for me, leaves me feeling awful the next day.

  3. On a good night 7-9hrs but on a bad night it could be as little as 4 hours. I sleep better in the winter typically, because it stays dark longer!

  4. I go through regular periods when I don't sleep well (for no apparent reason that I can see) so at best I might get 2-3 hours if I am lucky, on good nights I get 7-8 so I appreciate my 'good' nights 🙂

  5. 5 or 6 hours – even though the kids are grown up I still can't get back to my pre-children sleeping pattern!

  6. i'm lucky I could sleep on a washing line if i'm on my own but my husband is a terrible sleeper its 4 hours on a good night

  7. It varies dramatically as I am an intermittent insomniac – can be anything from 0 to 7 hours a night (yes some nights I don't sleep at all) ;o) (Rafflecopter entries in my real name Nikki Hayes)

  8. I get about 4-5 hours sleep a night…. I'm sure all that will change though with a super comfy lovely pillow!!! 🙂

    Thanks! Would love to win this!!!

  9. Between 7-8 hours….maybe a little more. My 5 month old sleeps around 11/12 hours per night but atm I am dog sitting and he loves waking me up at the crack of dawn for a wee!!! Grrrr lol.
