Where has all the energy gone? Why are we so horribly deprived of joie de vivre? Insomnia is one answer - 42% of us say our biggest health worry is lack of sleep. Our 24/7 society must be playing a part. We're intelligent, street-smart people but we're utterly exhausted. Maybe we haven't made the connection between our insomnia and the fact we check our emails every night at 11.30. One of the main reasons for our exhaustion is a pig-headed refusal to accept some self-evident facts. Namely: if we don't eat well, sleep well, exercise our bodies, take time to relax and spend time with people we love (as opposed to people we share desk space with) then we're not going to function well.
