Suffering from Sleep Disorders? Sleep retreats can help

Sleep retreats are growing worldwide with growing sleep disorders in the global population. The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) has included circadian health (which includes a healthy sleep cycle) as one of the top wellness trends in 2020. Upsetting the normal circadian rhythm (or exposure to light/darkness cycle) results in poor sleep. Sleep-inducing apps and devices have generated a massive $432 billion sleep economy still we are struggling for restful sleep! Sleep holidays are emerging which implies spending few days in sleep retreats to reset our sleep cycle.

According to Australia’s Sleep Health Foundation, nearly 4 in 10 people experience irregular sleep. Blame it on the mounting stress, anxiety that creates erratic sleep patterns. The result is sleep deprivation, insomnia, untimely sleepiness whatever you call. We, human beings, have a tremendous capacity to manipulate sleep and that is taking a serious toll on our wellness.

People seldom count sound sleeping habits as a contributor to wellness and unhesitatingly shuffle between sleeping pills and pillows without realizing that these are short term solutions. ‘Sleep retreats’ crafted by hotels, resorts and spas are of great help to the sleep deprived folks. The study of sleep is a science by itself.  These retreats are run by trained professionals who take care of nutrition, physical activities, mental conditions and other underlying factors that are likely to affect the quality of sleep.
