Having trouble getting to sleep at night? A 2009 survey of 400 British doctors revealed that one of the key pieces of advice they give patients with sleeping trouble is to have sex before bedtime.
One in six of the GPs backed the "have sex approach" while 38 percent suggested the less romantic approach of sleeping separately.
One third of those surveyed said that they had noticed a significant rise in people suffering insomnia following the global financial crisis.
A huge 82 percent of the doctors warned that people are putting their health at risk by not addressing their quality of sleep.
Primary Care Physician Dr Patricia McNair told the UK’s Telegraph,"With just 21 percent of the population getting the recommended eight hours sleep a night, it is vital that the time spent in bed is as restful as possible."
She added, "Sleep is a fundamental part of our wellbeing, affecting us in many ways including energy levels, concentration and mood"
