IT’S SLEEP SUNDAY – LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW TO BANISH YOUR INSOMNIA…

BACK PAIN BLOG UK...

The Daily Mail is running an exclusive series about how to beat insomnia with renowned consultant neurologist and sleep expert Professor Guy Leschziner who told the Mail that the pandemic has been driving another global health crisis – an epidemic of sleep problems.

Anxiety over Covid has caused an epidemic of sleeplessness. The professor wrote how extreme forms of insomnia can cause depression, type 2 diabetes, heart problems and even Alzheimer’s.

This is a four part series which started on Saturday and which listed six golden rules for better sleep –

  1. Sleeping pills can cause more problems than they solve. In actual fact they may only get you an extra 30 minutes’ sleep!!!!
  2. Sleeping less could help you sleep better. If you limit the time allowed in bed it can strengthen the brain’s drive to sleep when you’re there.

WHY HOUSEWORK IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH…

IMAGES OF A HYGGE LIFESTYLE...

Love it or hate it, housework has to be done regularly but they are now saying it is also good for your health.

Housework can count as an exercise (well I already knew that), and some tasks can actually help to improve your strength and flexibility.

Apparently ironing isn’t at the top of the list for exercise but you can burn around 55 calories and it can make a significant difference to your core strength.

Vacuuming, however, can boost your core strength and can give your heart a good workout AND you could burn up around 100 calories each time.

Dusting and polishing will burn around 90 calories and helps increase flexibility as you reach up to corners and around furniture.

THE BEAUTIFUL PENINE WAY FOR YOUR DAILY WALK…

The Pennine’s Way, is arguable England’s longest and finest footpath, which runs from the Peaks, in Derbyshire, to the Scottish border, over rough moors and over grown Roman roads. But it’s certainly no walk for the inexperienced.
It has something to offer every long distance walker. The 270-mile walk will take your from the Peak District National Park along the Pennine ridge through the Yorkshire Dales, up into Northumberland, and across the Cheviots, and into the Scottish Borders. 

If you like a bit of history and culture then you will find that on this walk. Starting at the scene of the Kinder Scout mass trespasses of the 1930s, you will walk through the Southern Pennines, cradle of the Industrial Revolution, pass Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters, cross the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales, follow the Settle to Carlisle Railway and enter a huge Pennine area that was exploited by every kind of mining activity, the lead industry in particular, as well as The Roman Wall and beyond the territory of the Scottish Borders.
The National Trails Website has lots of details on how to plan your visit.
