HAPPY, POSITIVE, AND MOTIVATED: WHY GOOD SLEEPERS ARE CONTENT IN THEIR CAREERS

Bad sleep affects our lives in a number of ways. Mentally, our moods, attitudes, and emotions are heavily influenced by how we’ve slept the night before. Physically, our concentration levels and reaction times can take a hit from a poor night’s rest. The impact of this can be felt in many aspects of our lives, one of which is your profession. To further explore the relationship between sleep and work, we surveyed 2,000 UK residents about a variety of their sleeping habits and their well-bein...

DOZING WITH YOUR DACHSHUND: HOW MANY OF US SLEEP WITH OUR PETS?

Pets are an indispensable part of many families. Like most people, you’ll most likely display your affection by playing with your pet cat or dog, speaking to it as if it were human, and maybe even aligning meal times with the rest of the family. But some of us take this notion further than others. For those who simply can’t get enough of their pets, they’ll even allow them to sleep in the same bed. We asked 1,000 UK pet owners about how involved their pets are in their sleeping habits, and...

Sweet dreams: The recipe that’s key to a good night’s sleep

We all have our own beliefs about what’s best to eat or drink before bed, if anything at all, but now science has finally provided the answer. We’ve worked with Sophie Medlin, a dietician and lecturer at King’s College London, to identify the best foods and drinks to help you drift off quickly at night. Incredibly, and to the delight of millions across the country, Sarah encourages people to consume chocolate before bed, as long as it’s in moderation! She said: “A really important horm...

When should you drink your final coffee of the day?

The warm comfort of coffee can be alluring as you snuggle down on an evening, but its hindering effects on sleep are well documented. A drink too close to bedtime can leave you lying restless, unable to drop off into peaceful slumber. But how exactly does caffeine affect the human body and more importantly, how can someone use this information to inform their coffee schedule?   Caffeine, of course, can be found in a wide variety of foods and drinks, not just coffee, and is the most widely c...

Five signs you might need to take a duvet day

Feeling stressed, exhausted or simply need a day off to refresh and recuperate? A duvet day could be just the answer you’re looking for. Duvet days give employers a chance to give back to their staff and provide a productive workplace ethic. And for employees, it’s a chance to rest and recover when they might need it the most. Our latest study of over 1,000 UK adults revealed that over a third (34%) of people think duvet days are a good idea, and 36% believe they help with stress and anxiety...

What is Insomnia?

Ever found yourself tucked up in a comfy warm bed, with work put away for the day, no noise to distract you, but still unable to sleep? If you have, you might find that you’re suffering from insomnia. Insomnia is a very complex sleep issue which in short, means that if diagnosed, you’re having trouble sleeping for no tangible external reason.

The Evolution of the Bedroom

A space traditionally dedicated to sleep and sleep alone, there's no denying the role of the bedroom has evolved over the years. Of course, all the basics have remained the same - you'll find a comfortable bed, duvet and plenty of pillows in bedrooms across the UK - but what goes on inside the space has, undoubtedly, changed. Today, a bedroom isn't simply a place to rest your head. Homeowners everywhere are finding the need for a larger, more flexible space that's able to host a whole range of a...

What is Sleep Debt?

Sleep debt, also known as sleep deficit, is the long-term impact of not getting enough sleep. You might not think missing an hour or so of good bed rest in a single night affects you much – but when it happens again the next night, and the night after that, the effects can stack up. It’s generally recommended that adults get seven to nine hours of sleep per night. If you regularly get less than this, it may start to affect your work and daily life over time. What are the effects of sleep de...
