Daylight Saving ends soon
With the end of daylight saving we will have the opportunity of an extra hour of sleep. Many of us look forward to this, which is acknowledgement that most of us do not have enough sleep!
To help you prepare for the changeover you can download and print our poster to put on the notice board at work or on the fridge at home.

Why do people snore?
About 40% of men have at least mild snoring, on at least some nights. This number is smaller for women (around 30%). About 15% of people snore on most nights. People of any age can snore. Even some children have a problem with snoring (see Childhood Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea).
