Experts warn that sleepless nights can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
So how do you deal with the problem of not getting enough sleep?
Here’s how celebs get into the land of the nod.
And sleep expert James Wilson – founder of kipmate.com – tells us if their approaches really work.
Tess Daly: Mouth Tape
FANS were shocked by Tess’ Instagram post which showed her mouth taped shut.
Tess, 54, wrote: “I know this may look crazy but there’s a method to my madness – it’s mouth taping!
“A method that supports nasal breathing for a deeper, more restful sleep.”
JAMES says, “Breathing through your nose is generally good for your health, but if you have a stuffy nose, talk to a doctor first.”
Harry Styles: Meditation
HARRY credits meditation with getting a good night’s sleep.
The 29-year-old Watermelon Sugar singer said, “Sleep and meditation are a big part of my routine, whether I’m at home, in the studio or on the go.”
JAMES says, “Meditation is great before bed.
“In order to fall asleep, you need to lower your heart rate and be relaxed, and that’s a good way to do that.”
Kim Cattrall: CBT
THE ‘Sex And The City’ actress suffered from insomnia so bad that she had to give up a role in a West End play in 2015.
Kim, 66, has since undergone cognitive behavioral therapy, which challenges negative thoughts, to address her disorder.
JAMES says, “CBT is the gold standard when it comes to treating behavioral sleep issues.
“It promotes a healthy relationship with sleep.”
Wayne Rooney: Hair Dryer
THE former Man United player, 37, revealed in his 2007 autobiography that when he has trouble falling asleep, he turns on a vacuum or his wife Coleen’s hair dryer.
He wrote: “I’ve ruined so many hair dryers. She hates it.”
JAMES says, “Wayne isn’t the only one using noise – many are turning to him for help as he can heal the body’s alarm system.”
Ellie Goulding: Exercise
SINGER Ellie, 37, canceled a leg of her European tour in 2016 after suffering from exhaustion and friends said she was in severe pain insomnia.
Sources added that she wants to use “exercise and natural remedies” to tackle the problem.
JAMES says, “Exercise is great, but it can keep you awake if you do it too close to bedtime because it releases cortisol, a stress hormone.”
Seann Walsh: Color trick
THE comic, 37, shared his sleep trick on I’m A Celebrity last year.
When the TV buddies were struggling to nod off, Seann encouraged them to close their eyes, visualize colors in their minds, and watch them move.
JAMES says, “Controlling the colors in your head and slowing them down can cause your heart rate to drop and put you to sleep.”
