People who suffer with sleep disorders often find that their stresses are
more prominent at night.
Andrew Johnson, relaxation coach and therapist, said that around two-thirds of
adults have sleep problems in one form or another and the majority of people find
it difficult to relax without food or alcohol.
"It is very difficult for people who are on the go all day and don't have
time to stop and process their thoughts, then to go to bed at night and switch
off those thoughts," he stated.
Mr Johnson explained that modern lifestyle meant that as soon as people wake up
they are "bombarded" with information, from their mobile phones and
radios and there is often no time to process their thoughts until they lie in
bed at night.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, a short amount of rest can lead to
a higher body mass index and an increased risk of heart problems.
