If there is any subset of working society who struggles to achieve and sustain healthy sleep hygiene, actors and artists would have to be close to the top. Our irregular hours performing in theatres every night, or shooting with frequently ruthless early call times, can often make it seem utterly impossible to catch those zzz's. Add to that the nature of our 21st century lifestyle — our truly addictive social media feeds, those ever-present 24-hour news channels, the guilty temptation of another Netflix binge etc. — and we have a dangerous cocktail that directly correlates with an increase in stress levels, anxiety and depression. None of which help when it comes to getting quality sleep.
