Dreaming of better nights: National Bed Month inspires bedtime rejuvenation

March is National Bed Month, and no it doesn’t mean you can stay in bed for the month!  However, it does mean it’s a good time to think if you need to buy a new bed.  Organised by the National Sleep Council, Bed Months main purpose is to create awareness of the importance of getting a good night’s sleep for our overall health and well-being.

A good nights sleep can be a problem for so many people.  Nearly three quarters of UK adults (71%) do not get the seven to nine hours of sleep per night recommended by the National Sleep Foundation. What’s more, one in seven of us survive on dangerously low levels of sleep, getting less than five hours per night.

On average you will spend around a third of your lifetime in bed.  So, if you’re having difficulty sleeping, looking at your bed or mattress is a step in the right direction.

Poor sleep is linked to a range of physical and mental health problems. Not only can sleep deprivation increase your chances of experiencing anxiety and depression symptoms, but it can also make you more likely to suffer cardiac problems, dementia and diabetes, among other issues.

When we fail to get enough sleep, it becomes more difficult to make rational decisions and control our moods. We’re also more likely to indulge in unhealthy foods and less likely to get the fresh air and exercise we need for our health and wellbeing.

What we sleep on plays a huge part in how well we sleep.  A comfortable, supportive bed can make all the difference of a good nights rest!  There’s something universally comforting about crawling into a cozy bed after a long day. National Bed Month is our annual reminder of the critical role a good bed plays in our lives.

The Sleep Councils bed MOT helps to determine if a new bed would improve your chances of a better nights sleep…

  • Is your bed over seven years old?
  • Are you waking more frequently unrefreshed and aching?
  • Do you disturb your partner or are you disturbed by them when changing sleep positions?
  • Does it look used or worn?
  • Does it feel lumpy or is it sagging?
  • Would it be embarrassing if someone saw it without the covers?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions then maybe its time for a visit to David Phipp’s!
