Beating first night syndrome
ENJOY A DEEP SLEEP WHEREVER YOU ARE
Getting enough sleep is challenge for many people, recent studies in the US show that we on average only get 40% of the sleep we need. When we are on the road, even on what is supposed to be a relaxing holiday, we often sleep even less.
A recent study concluded that around 80% of all business travelers suffer from sleep disorders when travelling and that the average sleep duration decreases to 5.17 hours (approximately 58 minutes less than in your own bed). Several factors can make sleeping soundly challenging when we are travelling, for fun or for work in particular jet lag and first night effect.
Whether you are a frequent flier or going on a far-away vacation you risk having jet lag make sleeping easy difficult. This is a result of our body’s natural biological clock, our circadian rhythm), being disturbed by travelling to different time zones, in particular east-ward travelling is difficult for us to adjust to. When we travel to a new time zone it takes a while for our circadian rhythm to adjust and we remain on our normal time zone up to several days. As a result we are jetlagged and can wake up in the middle of the night and want to go to bed when it’s early afternoon.
First night effect
Being in a new sleeping environment we often struggle to relax and as a result sleep worse, this is a natural phenomenon referred to as the first night effect. Changes in ambient temperature, bedding, noise and smell keeps us alert instead of sleeping easy. Even at home we wake up 4-6 times a night, often we fall asleep so fast again that we don’t even notice. In a new environment we often struggle to back to sleep and our sleep quality suffers.
