GET QUALITY SLEEP
4 Quantity is one thing, but you should also get goodquality, uninterrupted sleep. Many things can ruin a good night’s sleep, from insomnia and frequent trips to the loo, to obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Insomnia is common and sometimes can be a result of other medical problems like depression and heart failure. Frequent trips to the toilet at night might be due to undiagnosed diabetes. OSA causes poor oxygenation of the blood, leaving you feeling even more tired when you wake up. Over time, it can also raise your blood pressure and stroke risk. You might have OSA if you have high blood pressure, snore loudly and often doze off during the day after a long night’s sleep – speak to your doctor about getting this problem under control.
