Sleep is a natural function, but it is nonetheless miraculous - we close our eyes and drift off to another world which we experience subconsciously. A world of snoring, sleep-walking, wonderful dreams and nightmares. While sleeping is easy and pleasurable for some, for others it is a struggle. Perhaps you are familiar with the feeling of lying awake at night for hours, staring at the ceiling. Maybe you lie in bed wide awake and trapped in a spiral of worrying thoughts, or you cannot sleep through the night because you wake up repeatedly for the slightest reason.
If you are not satisfied with your sleep pattern, you are not alone. A 2019 study by the brain foundation and the Trimbos institute revealed that 63% of Dutch people are not satisfied with the quality of sleep they get. Sleeping well is something everybody wants to achieve, but how should you go about it? That is a very good question.
