Do you get enough sleep? Only a third of adults do[1] – are you one of these people? Do you wake up feeling refreshed every morning?

Sleep is fundamental to your productivity, mood and health and your ability to learn, create and perform.  It’s natural, free, but not always easy.

Sleepkick brings together the science of sleep, explains why sleep is so important and how to sleep better and for longer. We want to help you sleep better at night so you can be at your best in the day.

Sleepkick is full of articles covering six key sleep topics.

In the science of sleep, we explain exactly what sleep is, why and how do we fall asleep and what happens when you’re asleep. Here we also describe what exactly is going on in your brain and body whilst you are asleep.

In the importance of sleep, we discuss the health benefits of sleep and the dangers of not sleeping enough. We describe how sleep makes us more productive, creative, happier; healthier, stronger and fitter; better learners, team players and partners.

Sleeping is a science, not an art. In sleeping tips, we discuss a range of tips, tricks and the tried and tested – all based in science – of how to sleep better. If you’re not interested in the science and just want to know how to sleep better, head over to this section.

In sleeping healthy we discuss the wider health implications of sleeping and sleeping behaviours. Here we cover topics such as the dangers of an alarm clock or if we should all be napping or not.

In sleep and society, we discuss our approach to sleep and if it is shaped more by our culture and society than our need to sleep.  Sleep and Society explores the link between our sleeping patterns and behaviours and society and our culture. Has the modern world changed the way we think about and our approach to sleep?

And lastly, in sleeping problems, we discuss signs and types of sleeping problems. However, a word of caution. Clinical sleeping conditions such as insomnia and narcolepsy are extremely serious and can be debilitating. Treatment of clinical sleeping conditions is not covered by SleepKick. If you think you might have a clinical sleeping condition please visit your doctor.
