Drive Time

Let Drive Time accompany you every weekday afternoon, between 4-6 pm, with LIVE discussions on the topics that matter. 

Join Asif Munir, Asim Hashmi and Tahir Khalid for Monday’s show where we will be discussing :

  • Importance of sleep -‘And He it is Who has made the night a covering for you, and Who has made sleep for rest, and has made the day for rising up’ – Holy Quran (25:48)Have you been struggling to fall asleep this month? Have you spent countless nights lying awake in bed, wondering why you can’t fall asleep? If so, you’re not alone. September or ‘Stresstember’ as the Sleep Council dubbed it, has been identified by health professionals as a stressful month for many, with millions of people struggling with stress and sleepless nights. With our busy lifestyles and the demands of modern life, sleeping the recommended amount of eight hours a day may seem like a luxury none of us can afford. However, sleep is vital to our well-being and needs to become more of a priority if we want to be happier and healthier. Join as we discuss the importance of sleep, the effects of sleep deprivation, how we can sleep better.
  • Eye Health Week -Sight is the sense people fear losing the most, yet many of us don’t know how to look after our eyes. 24th to 30th September 2018 is the National Eye Health Week (EHW) which aims to educate people on how to look after our eyes. We will discuss common conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, AMD and diabetic retinopathy. Research is the only way that new treatments for eye disease, sight loss and blindness can be discovered yet, of all the money that is spent on medical research in the UK, only 2% is directed at eye disease. Further, we discuss causes such as ‘Gift of Sight’ run by Humanity First to help restore vision to people in 3rd World Countries.
