Sleeping Well

Population Outcome: People in Suffolk and North East Essex Stay Well

Sleep is an often forgotten contributor to health. Sleep is an essential part of looking after your physical and mental health and not getting enough sleep increases our mortality risk. We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, and it makes a huge contribution to our health and wellbeing because it’s a restorative phase and a chance for our bodies and brains to rest and repair and to process information.
