Bob­bies turn to blue for a de­cent sleep

Midweek Sport - - #LOVE ISLAND -

NINE out of 10 po­lice work­ers say they have trou­ble sleep­ing at night, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey.

And 20 per cent of those ques­tioned said they like to close the door be­hind them and be alone when they get home from work, the re­search com­mis­sioned by Po­lice Mu­tual found.

The poll looked at the im­por­tance of the home as the place to un­wind for serv­ing po­lice work­ers, and dis­cov­ered they found BLUE – the shade they are most as­so­ci­ated with – the most re­lax­ing paint colour.

This is in con­trast to the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion who find that mag­no­lia walls help them feel most re­laxed.

Although one in five like to spend their post-work time chill­ing out in the bed­room, 90% said they strug­gle to get to sleep or wake in the mid­dle of the night.

The study for Po­lice Mu­tual, the not-for-profit fi­nan­cial ser­vices or­gan­i­sa­tion for the po­lice fam­ily, saw 1,575 peo­ple ques­tioned on­line by re­searchers 3gem.
