SLEEP: Do we really need less as we get older?

Why am I so exhausted? It must be autumn | Opinion

There’s being tired and then there is being tired. So often when we’re asked how we are, we respond with ‘tired’. Rarely are we really knee-droppingly tired - the kind of exhaustion that comes from having a newborn for example, or working a shift in a hospital, or suffering from long-term insomnia. Yet ‘tired’ is one of our standard responses.

We messed the planet up so we must fix it – Verity Lush

I have been thinking this week about the wasteful years in which we live. It is far too easy for many of us to read or hear the word ‘environment’ and start muttering about patchouli-wreathed hippies and people currently causing a nuisance to others by protesting on the streets of London.
