What keeps the British awake at night?

So here is a lovely visual from our Creative Wedo Ninja aka: ‘The Jackal’, to help you get in the know about the most common issues to do with your nightly sleep issues:

    Good work! Saw this over on Infographics Showcase and thought this comment would make more sense here than over there…

    I’m surprised “read a book” isn’t in your Top 10 Tips. #11 maybe? I used to look at my phone last thing at night and then I’d struggle to sleep, probably because of the bright screen. Now I make sure to read a few pages of a book – works a treat. :-)

      Suggestion noted Steve!
      Nothing quite like some literature to lull you into a slumber! Good choice may I say :)

    Inspired by Steve’s righteous comment, and the fact I love a good book debate, here is Tip #11:

    “Reading a book in bed is a great way to send you off to sleep, so dear ninjas, which books would you recommend for this?”
    Currently, my bedtime read is ‘1984’ by George Orwell; dystopic genius.

    So true, reading in bed always makes me falling asleep in less than 20 mins!
    May I suggest tip#13: “Put on some music that you find relaxing” I personally like this one at the mmt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6phFFn2tyk . You should create the “top10 music tracks for getting a great night’s sleep”!
