Fawcett finds life gets in the way of good sleeping patterns

Irish Times Sleep Challenge - Holly Week 2

Mon, Mar 3, 2014, 16:38

Dr John Faul is a respiratory physician and sleep specialist at the Hermitage Medical Clinic. During the Sleep Challenge he will be providing practical input on how people can improve their sleep.

Dr John Faul comments: Great effort, but clearly you can now see how life gets in the way of good sleep.  It is inevitable that extra work or travel commitments will destroy the best laid plans. Wise to catch up with a long sleep but it takes more than one long sleep to fully catch up! Sleep debt has to be paid back in installments.
