A tipple before bedtime may get you off to sleep faster but it can disrupt your night’s slumber, say researchers who have reviewed the evidence. The London Sleep Centre team says studies show alcohol upsets our normal sleep cycles. While it cuts the time it takes to first nod off and sends us into a deep sleep, it also robs us of one of our most satisfying types of sleep – sleep where dreams occur. Used too often, it can cause insomnia. Many advocate a nightcap. Nursing homes and hospital wards have even been known to serve alcohol to help patients, but scientists strongly advise against it.
A good night’s sleep is elusive to many, whether you have fibromyalgia, anxiety/depression, diabetes or just going through the normal course of life. To get up in the morning, energized and ready to start the day is a hope and a goal that many strive for.
