“Sleep! sleep! beauty bright,
Dreaming o’er the joys of night”
I think we probably all are at the moment at some point, aren’t we? Having trouble at sleeping that is. With very uncertain times, massive economic upheaval, and bewildering and often contradictory government policy, it’s becoming ever harder to get a proper night’s rest as our brains churn over events and worries.
The media business, especially film, is still in disarray. The rules on filming policy are hazy at best. When we contacted the Home Office for further clarification they deferred us to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport … who deferred us to the BFI … who, to their credit, did provide advice, but it adds yet another stressful dimension to an already very stressful vocation.
And of course, the more responsibility you have – in above-the-line roles for example, that stress is compounded even more. Managing to switch off for a while, get a decent night’s sleep, refresh and reset is difficult, but vital if you are to perform to the best of your abilities and stay mentally fresh.
Alcohol or sleeping pills are hardly the best options to remedy this, coming with not a few counterproductive downsides. Natural remedies like Valerian, Chamomile, St John’s Wort, Melatonin, Hops or Passionflower have that risk-free and non-pharmaceutical charm, but don’t always provide decent relief.
Fear not though. There are other options. Options such as: SLEEPABILITY.
Recently launched, Sleepability – the natural sleep clinic – tackles the causes of your sleeplessness, rather than just try and provide a blanket solution, then offers tailored advice and help to resolve your sleep problem, using natural remedies. It provides professional on-going solutions and techniques to help you achieve a peaceful night’s rest, revitalise your body and become more productive.
