The coming of summer is something to celebrate for most people, especially after a particularly long winter. But the hot weather can cause havoc when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, says The Sleep Council.
The survey of more than 2,000 adults suggests snorers may be three times more likely to fall asleep at the wheel than those who never snore, with 32 percent of those aged 45 and older admitting they’ve dozed off or have been close to dozing off – while driving.
For many people, the start of the winter season is when the clocks go back on the last Sunday in October. But while having an extra hour in bed may sound like a good idea, changing the clocks even by as little as an hour can disrupt your sleep pattern, causing sleep difficulties for many.
