Sleep Elevated: Stiltz mission for better quality rest this World Sleep Day

In our fast-paced and demanding world, it’s not surprising many of us don’t get enough quality sleep. There are a multitude of reasons for this including distractions that keep us awake, stress levels and disrupted routines. But one of the biggest offenders is we simply don’t view sleep as a high enough priority compared to our other commitments.

Why is sleep important?

When we don’t get enough sleep, not only can we feel physically tired and open ourselves to an increased chance of becoming unwell, but we also risk damaging our mental health.

How Stiltz is promoting better habits during World Sleep Day

We understand poor sleep can affect many areas of our lives, including in the workplace. This is important for all of us, but especially those operating machinery or whose job involves driving for extended periods of time.

As part of our ongoing mission to support and nurture colleagues, Stiltz is encouraging everyone across the business to take part in online workshops during the week commencing World Sleep Day, and pick up some easy wins for improving the quality of their sleep.

Having run these sessions in a previous role, Stiltz Group People Director, Tara Lochery knows all too well the benefits participating can have.

‘By taking part in World Sleep Day, we strengthen our commitment to promoting a healthy work-life balance and nurturing a workspace where everyone’s wellbeing and happiness is prioritised. We can all benefit from better sleep and start each morning well-rested and ready to take on the day!”

The webinars will cover:

  • Our biological drive to sleep, the sleep cycle, and what happens when we are asleep.
  • How sleep can get derailed – the environmental and internal sleep disrupters.
  • How to sleep better – top tips for a good night’s sleep.

Speaking of tips…

Prioritising a good night’s sleep isn’t just about rest; it’s a proactive measure to safeguard our physical and mental vitality, ensuring we approach each day with resilience, focus, and a positive mindset.

We will leave you with some advice our workshops will touch on for encouraging healthier sleep habits:

  • Get into a routine – Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This helps regulate the body’s internal clock, improving the quality of sleep.
  • Create a pre-sleep plan – Develop calming rituals, such as reading a book, practising mindfulness, or taking a warm bath. These activities signal to the body that it’s time to wind down.
  • Limit distractions – Try to practice the above activities rather than stare at screens before bedtime. Our bodies are naturally attuned to the cycles of light and darkness, regulating our internal clock known as the circadian rhythm. Artificial light disrupts this and tricks our bodies into thinking it is earlier in the day, so we are less likely to feel tired.

Remember, a good night’s sleep is more than just a restful experience – it’s the start of a healthier journey which enables us to take on each day with greater focus and positivity.
