The Sleep Issue

This episode was recorded remotely during the Dublin lockdown.


Welcome to series 3 of Lennon Courtney Left Alone, a podcast about conversations we have when we’re left alone.

This week it’s The Sleep Issue. 

Research carried out in 2018 revealed that almost 80% of Irish people are sleep deprived. We are a nation sleepwalking through life. Not getting enough sleep means we’re not getting the most out ourselves and our days but more importantly, it is incredibly damaging to our health.

While we have you bright eyed and bushy tailed, we would really appreciate it if you left us a 5 star review and comment on iTunes or wherever you listen. We left a link in our show notes to make it easy for you. 

Before we get started though, as always, we would really love it if you left us a 5 star review and comment on iTunes or wherever you listen. All you have to do is  click here and it will bring you straight to our page. Our podcast is always free to listen to so consider leaving five stars like a digital tip to us.

Until next Thursday, continue to stay safe!

Sonya and Brendan.
