Want to ensure a good night’s sleep?

A recent survey revealed that sleep disorders affect an estimated 93% of the Indian population. Here are some tips from experts to help you get a good night’s rest.

What can be more restful than a good night’s sleep? You really wouldn’t know unless you have a bad night’s sleep which means you wake up crabby – to say the least.

If you’re Indian (as most of us reading tend to be) chances are that you don’t often get a good night’s sleep. The Philips Sleep Survey, a study by Philips Electronics India Limited carried out by the Nielsen Company in December 2009, found out that sleep disorders affect an estimated 93% of the Indian population.

The survey (carried out among 5,600 respondents aged 35 to 65 years, across 25 cities in urban India with a population of 5 lakh and upwards) found that an astonishing 11 % of us take leave from work because of lack of sleep. Another interesting finding was that 58 % of us feel our work suffers from lack of adequate sleep, with 11 % actually falling asleep at work.
