Sleep better, feel happier, and worry less

15 January 2019

As a part of our commitment to improving wellbeing across UCL, we’ve teamed up with experts from Sleepio to help you test your sleep and improve it.

Last year we asked you to tell us about your wellbeing to help inform our approach to Wellbeing at UCL. The survey showed that only 7% of respondents get enough sleep 7 nights a week; and 57% get enough sleep only 3 nights a week or less.  

As a part of our commitment to improving wellbeing across UCL, we’ve teamed up with experts from Sleepio to help you test your sleep and improve it. Whether you struggle to get a wink or sleep like a log, sleep impacts every area of your life  from your energy levels to your appetite, and even how well you get along with colleagues! Sleepio helps you learn proven techniques to fall asleep faster and stay asleep through the night.

Take the sleep test to discover your Sleep Score.

Sleepio was developed by sleep expert, Professor Colin Espie, based on over 30 years of research and is backed by gold standard clinical trials, and has been positively evaluated by NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

And the best news? Sleepio is now free for UCL staff and students thanks to Good Thinking, London’s NHS Digital Mental Wellbeing Service.
