    Excellent service Excellent service! I have been using the King kanine products from miracle leaf as was originally buying them directly from king kanine in Florida, which meant waiting for it to come through customs so this is a much better and quicker service. I did recieve a faulty spray bottle with a bundle I had bought and without hesitation and without proof of a picture they did send me another bottle free of charge which promptly arrived the next day, the customer service was second to none and so friendly. I will continue to use Miracle leaf. The only 1 criticism I would have is that buying from the king kanine in florida they did have alot more sales and the sales were excellent and as the products are expensive I took full advantage of them and would bulk buy, so when florida king kanine have up to 40% sales off their products I will probably still use them to buy in bulk, but other than that Miracle leaf is a very reliable company, excellent and friendly customer service and very fast delivery so will go between the two companies but all in all its a 5 star! Anything that helps with my dog's arthritis and reduce any pain then I will do for him. So glad I can now get this product in Britain now, thanks Miracle leaf its a life saver for my dog! A happy customer and a happy hound!

We’ve all been there. You’ve been lying in bed for what feels like an eternity, you’re trying to resist the temptation of checking (or rechecking) the time, which is edging ever-closer to your morning alarm, and your mind is conducting a mental Roll Call of every stressful,  embarrassing, or regrettable moment you’ve ever experienced. 

 

Being unable to get to sleep is, unfortunately, a common phenomenon. 

 

Very common in fact; a recent national study found as many as 16 million adults living in the UK suffered from sleepless nights. What’s more, a third of these adults also said they had insomnia, and nearly a quarter slept no more than five hours every night. 

 

But why is this? 

 

Studies have linked high-powered/pressured careers, relationship problems and financial difficulties to the issue, and most commonly a combination of stress-factors impact sleep wellness. 

One recent study  by Sleep Education correlated issues with falling (and staying) asleep to living in cities, claiming that those living in bigger, busier cities were more likely to be more regularly sleep deprived. 

With this mind, we wanted to find out where the most sleep deprived places in Britain actually were. Here’s what we found.

 

Key findings

 

  • The results were much more of a mixed bag than initially envisaged. Not only were major cities like London, Birmingham and Manchester less sleep-deprived than expected, but smaller towns often associated with relaxation and a slower way of life were found to have residents that were much more prone to being unable to sleep. 
  • The most sleep deprived place in the UK was Harrogate in Yorkshire, with the greatest number of searches for the phrase “why can’t I sleep?” in Google per capita. 
  • The second and third most sleep deprived locations were Bangor (Wales) and Inverness (Scotland)
  • Scotland occupied 3 of the 5 most sleep-deprived locations in Britain 
  • Of all 45 locations, London had the lowest number of searches for the phrase “why can’t I sleep” per capita, making it the least sleep deprived place in the country.

Methodology

 

The research team at Miracle Leaf used Google’s local Keyword Planner tool to find out how many times the question “why can’t I sleep” had been asked in cities and towns around the UK. 

Once we had this data, we found a monthly average for each place. 

We then used the most up-to-date ONS data to find out the populations of each place and used this to work out the total percentage of residents searching for this question. 

To streamline our findings, we filtered our results by all locations with a population of 120,000 or higher. This gave us our final list of the top 45 most sleep-deprived towns and cities, which we’ve ordered from most to least sleep-deprived.
