Sleep for wellbeing

Did you know that 41% of veterans struggle to sleep?

Sleep is essential for good health and wellbeing. On average, a person needs 8 hours sleep a night in order to function well during the day, but 1 in 4 veterans don’t get more than five hours’ sleep a night.


If you don’t sleep properly, the following can happen:


  • Memory problems

  • Dizziness and headaches

  • Short temper

  • Weight gain


Simple things like looking at what you eat or taking part in an activity such as yoga can help you sleep so much better.
