Sleep expert Dr Deborah Lee from Dr Fox Online Pharmacy shared with 247 Blinds: “The importance of good quality sleep must not be underestimated. Fatigue is unpleasant and difficult.”
She continued: “But poor sleep on a regular basis can have serious and irreversible health implications, including metabolic problems, heart disease, gastrointestinal difficulties, obesity, some cancers and poor mental health.
“It’s crucial to understand that successful sleep during the day isn’t just about recreating night, as our bodies aren’t programmed to sleep during this time.
“This study will provide insights into the factors that truly impact rest during daylight hours and could really make a difference to the productivity and wellbeing of the UK’s growing night shift workforce.”
