Charity launches UK’s first dedicated helpline for people who struggle sleeping… – The Sun

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.
A CHARITY has launched the UK’s first dedicated helpline — for people who have trouble sleeping.
More than a quarter of people suffer from the problem, rising to half of those aged 18-24, a poll shows.
Now, The Sleep Charity is providing a five-day-a-week national helpline to help those struggling to get a good night’s rest.
Trained advisers will talk callers through their problems, help to identify ways of dealing with their issues and point them towards other organisations and services for specialist or long-term support.
In the poll, half of people said a bad night’s sleep affected their motivation, with three in ten suffering sore eyes or aching joints as a result.
And one in seven said they had taken several days off work over the past three months because of poor sleep.
Worryingly, nearly a fifth said they drank alcohol to help themselves nod off, the Furniture Village poll found.
Expert Dr Ranj Singh said: “Sleep is one of the most important things for a healthy lifestyle.
“A tired society is a grouchy, unproductive and unhealthy society.”
