Christmas 'can worsen sleep disorders'

The festive season is now in full swing and it could be a challenging time of year for those who suffer from sleep disorders.

According to the sleep guru from Anandi, people should ensure they do not over-exert themselves, as at this time of year some think they will be able to get by on just several hours of sleep.

Partygoers should also be aware of how much alcohol they drink on a night out, she advised, pointing out that it can have a detrimental impact on slumber.

"Whilst alcohol might send you off to sleep quickly, alcohol effects your sleep cycles and you will find that you will wake up in the early hours in the morning," the expert said.

This follows recent research from Dream Beds, which indicated that tonight is most likely to see people struggling to get to sleep as they worry about Christmas Day.
