You know sleep is important. The concept of getting a good night’s sleep has been ingrained into me for as long as I remember and the purpose of that good night sleep as far as I could tell for a long time was simply to not be tired. Whilst obviously still a big part of the process, by sleeping not to be tired you’re underutilising one of the easiest tools in your arsenal to be healthier. Being proactive about your health is one of the core concepts we promote at Inverurie Chiropractic clinic, the same forward thought about your night-time routine is as intrinsic as your daytime one to get you to as healthy as you want to be.

It’s very busy at @NHS24 & the 111 phone line. The option is to use nhsinform.scot as your first source of info. If symptoms are mild you do not need to call and it means those lines are kept for those with severe symptoms who need attention most urgently. For those with mild symptoms of a new cough and high temperature you need to stay home for 7 days and get well. Fluids, rest, isolation and paracetamol – that’s the advice given by NHS Scotland
