Catherine Rutland discusses the importance of a good night’s sleep.

I am a bit of ‘sleep freak’, I am not sure if that is a real thing, however the term kind of fits me! I usually get eight or nine hours’ sleep a night and I get a little grumpy if I don’t.

I suppose it is like my comfort blanket, that however things are going, I know that if I can get a good night’s sleep then things will be different in the morning.

There has been a lot of talk in the last few months around the importance of sleep and the effect this situation has had on many people’s sleep patterns. It is always hard isn’t it, that the times when you would most benefit from a good night’s sleep, are the most likely times you won’t get it?

Added to the stresses and strains of the last months there is also changed work patterns and ways of working. These can have huge impacts on whether we are performing at our best.
