Some sound sleep advice
Not everyone really puts that much thought into exactly how long they want to be asleep in bed for.
But, perhaps especially when you're working every day, you can find yourself setting a target for how many hours you want to be snoozing for!
Premier Inn reported last year that on average Brits want to sleep for seven hours a night. However, more than three quarters of its survey sample said they don't actually get this amount of shut-eye.
If you feel you need to do something about getting better kip, there is always help at hand.
"Everyone is different and has their own personal preferences, but there are some common factors that can affect all of us when it comes to sleep," expert Dr Dan Robotham explained in 2011.
The Mental Health Foundation senior research officer recommended eye masks as an option to try for people who are finding their room isn't dark enough for them.
Ear plugs, on the other hand, were recommended for people dealing with loud noise to try using.
"If you’re finding it difficult to get to sleep, try getting up for a while until you feel sleepier, rather than lying in bed and worrying about the fact you aren’t managing to sleep," he also suggested.
People should also avoid caffeine during the latter part of the day, as well as eating a lot late at night.
He said that though people's sleep could be improved though exercising – and that they could cut down on anxiety and relieve stressful feelings by doing this – they shouldn't exercise during the late evening.
"The adrenaline that your body produces when you exercise can make it more difficult to get to sleep," the expert explained.
People suffering from mental health issues like depression or anxiety might find their sleep is affected by these, he added.
"It is important to speak with your GP about a combined approach that tackles both the mental health issue and the sleep problem," he told people in this position.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Anoni, Ashwagandha is a stress reliever and controls the production of stress-inducing hormones. High production of cortisol can compromise the production of progesterone. When Ashwagandha controls cortisol, it automatically stabilises progesterone production levels. Hope this helps :)
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello, As Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, there are numerous ways that it can help you depending on what time of day it is. Most people like to use Ashwagandha in the morning as it has some benefits when it comes to naturally reducing anxiety which could help throughout the day. However, others take it at night to help with sleep. If you are having difficulty sleeping, take it before bed. Otherwise, it does not matter at what time of day you take it as long as you are consistent from day to day.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Debbie, There is 340 mg of herb per capsule in our Ashwagandha. We usually recommend 2 capsules a day which are equivalent to 680mg. It is possible to take up to 1200mg daily, but only over short periods, so we prefer to stay well within the limits of safety, while still dosing enough to see the benefits. We always recommend to discuss taking the supplement with your GP before hand if you'd like to increase dosages. I hope this helps :)
