In today’s lockdown life, understanding how we sleep - and the effect it has on the quality of life if we don’t get enough sleep - has become a topic of interest to scientists and the general public. On top of everything else we have to deal with at the moment, the last thing we need is to add insomnia to our increasing list of worries.
Increasing levels of worry and confusion might be impacting how much shut-eye you’re managing to squeeze in alongside everything else. But fighting the cognitive and emotional issues sleep deprivation can bring will only add to your troubles. It’s important we sort this out.
Here are our top tips for getting a good night of sleep during lockdown.
Put your day to bed

As we all know, sleep is crucial for our health and wellbeing. Depravity of this daily action can alter immune functions, even for healthy people who do not suffer from allergies. People with chronic diseases are more vulnerable to sleep disruptions caused by the presence of symptoms of illness at night, which can negatively affect a person's quality of sleep, and lower the immune system. Allergies are one of the most common chronic diseases and - when not treated right - have the ability to affect sleep in important ways.
It’s important to understand that different materials on your mattress may have an impact on the accumulation of allergens. A typical used mattress is home to between 100,000 and 1 million mites. That may sound surprising, but when you understand an average person sheds roughly 454 grams of skin a year, and that the average person sweats around 285ml every night (moisture that is then left in your b
For many, buying second-hand goods is a great way to save money. Lots of us enjoy looking out for a great deal where we can, like a quirky antique table, or something smaller, like an old book to read on a cosy night in. Most of the time, these purchases are win-win situations, not only are you getting something cheap, but you’re giving life to something that might have ended up clogging up a landfill if it weren’t for you buying it. However, there are some things you should really consider buying new. Your mattress is one of them.
We spend roughly a third of our life asleep, and good sleep is considered important for your health and wellbeing. It’s not a good idea to cut corners with a purchase that can have such a big impact on your life. And you don't need to. Here at Sleep Express, we offer a variety of high quality mattresses at affordable prices.
The internet is a dream. Not only can we keep in touch with our loved ones, but we can find the inspiration we’re looking for in any part of our lives, from careers, to clothing, to bedrooms. That last one is the one we’re interested in. Beds are our bread and butter. They’re the focal point of a bedroom, and we love looking at how people dress them.
As the winter months approach, there’s a whole host of gorgeous winter bedrooms blooming all over the internet. We thought you’d like to see some. We’re sure you won’t be able to copy the splendour of the ones we found (or perhaps you already have!), but there’ll be elements of these you can incorporate into your own bedroom if you want to.
If you’re struggling to sleep, you’ll no doubt be wondering why. Perhaps you’ll put it down to stress and anxiety, you might think you need to change your mattress or bedding, but did you know it might be because you’re eating something that doesn’t agree with you?
When micronutrients are manipulated, they can provoke sleep deprivation. At the same time, the things you eat can affect your sleep positively, so it might be time to swap out some ingredients.
To help, here is a list of the best and worst things to eat if you’re looking for a full night of shut-eye.
Bad foods for sleep

A lot goes into choosing the right kind of mattress for your bedroom. Not only do you need to consider different levels of firmness for your body weight, but you also need to think about your sleeping position.

Guest bedrooms sometimes fall quite low on the priority list, especially when there are budget and time restrictions. But the look and feel of your guestroom can be just as important as your master bedroom, or anywhere else in the home.
Not only is your spare room there to accommodate guests, but it’s also a neutral space for family members to relax. And overnight visitors who have a good night’s sleep will look forward to returning again.
