Huffington’s rallying cry merits consideration; in the western world, people’s bedrooms may be more luxurious than ever but sleep is not highly valued. In a globalised world in which our phones flash continuously and life never stands still, sleep just seems to be a waste of precious time.

There are several ways of improving the quality of your sleep so that your biological clock remains in equilibrium.
