It’s official: New Zealanders need to get more sleep!
A Southern Cross Healthcare Group survey into the living habits of Kiwis has revealed that almost a quarter of us already feel tired or fatigued every day, with this rising to 36% among people under 30.
The survey also showed that 80% of New Zealanders would rather have a full night’s sleep than a big night out.
Worse still, it revealed that one in ten (11%) New Zealanders have fallen asleep at the wheel.
“In our lifetime we spend on average 26 years sleeping, and we all know that having a good night’s sleep is a fundamental part of leading a healthy life – it’s important to get it right.”
Our July sleep challenge starts today. Here's some guidelines to help get you started on getting more Z's this month.
