Being able to fall asleep anytime, anywhere makes you a good sleeper. Drinking alcohol before bed helps you sleep. Using medications is the best way to beat jet-lag.

There are plenty of myths when it comes to sleep.

This month, we are aiming to debunk some of the misconceptions that are keeping us up at night as part of our commitment to helping members get a better night’s sleep.

Sleep is an essential function that allows your body and mind to recharge, leaving you refreshed and alert when you wake up. It also helps the body remain healthy and stave off diseases and is just as important as eating a balanced, nutritious diet and exercising.

“Yet despite being the subject of a parliamentary inquiry back in 2019 and being identified as a “national emergency”, sleep is still not getting enough attention.

HIF CEO Justin James said investment in sleep and education around fatigue has never been more topical or important.

“Part of the problem when it comes to sleep is misinformation spread online, social media and by word-of-mouth, such as ‘successful people sleep less’,” Mr James said.

“At HIF, we want to tackle the global sleep crisis head on – starting with putting some of those myths around sleep to bed – pun totally intended.”
