World Water Day is recognises that water is essential. For many, water is available on demand at the turn of a tap in multiple rooms in our house. But what happens if this life-giving source is taken away? Or if it never existed in the first place?
With National Napping Day on 12th March and World Sleep Day on the 16th March, we’ve being thinking about how to optimise our shut-eye this week. Here are some fantastic tips on how to get yourself a good night’s sleep.
Sleep is vitally important to our physical and mental health. Not getting enough sleep can have serious impacts, not least on productivity – we all know that feeling of nodding off at our desk. It’s also been a great excuse to look at cute Insta snaps of sleepy animals!
The Natracare team have agreed our sleeping patterns definitely could do with some work. We wanted to take this international day of sleep to scour the internet for the best tips to help you get your 8 hours! Here’s what we found…
