Feelings of stress, worry about money and heat are the main causes of poor sleep


The biggest causes of a restless night’s sleep have been discovered – including feeling stressed, worrying about finances and never having the right temperature.

A study of two thousand adults found that 38 percent suffer from poor sleep due to an uncomfortable mattress, while 36 percent have difficulty due to their partner snoring.

A successful sleep is also often disrupted by traffic noise, light coming from the window, and habits such as consuming caffeinated beverages.

And cell phones have a huge impact, with moving through social media (14 percent), playing games (12 percent) and reading (13 percent) on their bedtime devices also lead to a bad night.

As a result, the average adult thinks they need four extra hours of sleep each night to make up for the lack of restful sleep, according to research commissioned by furniture vendor DF.

Dr. David Lee, clinical director at Sleep Unlimited and author of Teaching the World to Sleep, said: or establish a good bedtime routine. Those who sleep poorly should weigh down the bedroom by setting the bedroom as merely for sleep. Dress in another room, read in another room, use electrical appliances in another room. “Then, over time, you’re going to start tying the bed in the bedroom to nothing but sleep.”

A DFS spokesman said: “There are ways to get a good night’s sleep, but people seem to be out of practice with a number of habits that interfere with the day. It is not surprising that having a poor quality mattress or pillow is a factor that contributes to an uncomfortable sleeping pattern as well as emotional and physical factors in and around the house. “So it’s important to make sure you have a really comfortable bed and tighten your routine where it’s needed.”

The study also found that more than a quarter of adults (28 percent) are also dissatisfied with the number of hours of sleep they do.


While 18 percent admitted that their sleep routine has worsened since the pandemic. More than half of them (53 percent) rated this with feelings of worry and anxiety about daily issues and 20 percent found it difficult to disconnect from reading the news announcements on their phone.
