The People’s Trial results
We looked at each participant to see:
- how many improved
- had no change
- or had worse quality of sleep from the start to the finish of the trial.
Overall, we found that reading a book in bed before going to sleep improved sleep.
42% (156 people) in the reading a book in bed group felt their sleep improved
28% (112 people) in the not reading a book in bed group.
What people told us their sleep quality was at the end of the trial?
Although reading improved sleep quality overall, not everyone’s sleep improved. 10% of people (37 people) in the reading a book in bed group and 16% (64 people) and in the not reading a book in bed group, felt that their sleep got worse (This is not at all unusual in trials).
