It's that time of year when every other person you speak to, or friend on Facebook, seems to be on holiday or about to jet off to sunny climes. If, like me, you've got a couple of weeks to go until you shut down your laptop or step away from your desk, don't worry!  There's plenty of time to start...

For anyone who’s ever had any problems with sleep, you’ve no doubt heard of Circadian rhythms?  This is a natural biological process, otherwise known as our ‘internal clock’ as it regulates our sleep-wake cycle, going through 1 cycle approximately every 24 hours.  When the sun is up, we’re awake and active, then once it sets and night falls, our bodies...
