World Health Day 2022: Our planet, our health
"Are we able to reimagine a world where clean air, water and food are available to all?
Where economies are focused on health and well-being?
Where cities are liveable and people have control over their health and the health of the planet?"

Getting adequate, good quality sleep every night is a critical component to health, allowing the body and mind to rest and recover. The stress and disruption that COVID-19 has brought to many of our lives means that even more people are suffering from irregular or interrupted sleep or insomnia. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to improve sleep, even during a pandemic.
Here are the most important aspects to take into account:
- Set a regular bedtime and wake time. This allows your circadian rhythm to adjust to a regular sleep schedule, helping your natural cycles of energy and sleepiness.
- Create a bedtime routine and put your mobile phone away and other mobile devices 1 hour before bedtime
- Include a morning walk every morning to include exercise and natural light exposure when you start your day
- Avoid Caffeine and spicy foods late on the day
- Make your bed cosy and comfy
- Block out distractions
- Bet on relaxation at the end of the day
