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.

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...

How Long Should You Sleep For?

Eating your five a day, exercising regularly, brushing your teeth twice a day. These things are all actively considered to be great for your health - but this list is missing one of the most important things of all - sleep.

How To Make Your Bed Like An Expert

But there are benefits to making your bed every morning. It’s not just that it looks nicer, and gives you a welcoming, comfy bed to look forward to after a long day (although it does do both those things!)
