(CNN)Insomniacs may need to return to their earliest remedies for a good night's sleep: A bed that gently rocks like a cradle helped a small group of adults sleep better and longer, a study published Thursday in Current Biology found. Add to that, a night tucked into the adult-cradle also improved their memories. Too much sleep linked to a greater risk of disease and death, study finds "Compared to a night spent on a stationary bed, our subjects fell asleep faster and spent more time in deep sleep," Laurence Bayer, senior author of the study and a senior researcher and biologist at the University of Geneva, wrote in an email.

PLENTY of us will be making lifestyle changes to ring in the new year – but how many have resolved to sleep better in 2019? Yet slumber is a part of your life that experts agree needs protecting. Gwyneth Paltrow, goddess of left-field health advice, is a vocal proponent of "clean sleeping", a trend that has gained popularity in the past couple of years. Riffing on the ideal of "clean eating", it has a simple premise, with potentially complex implementation. In effect, it says you should make it your mission to get at least seven or eight hours of good quality sleep every night. Why is sleep so important?
