Everywhere in the world we are coming to terms with the fact that sleep deprivation and poor-quality sleep have real consequences! Professor Matthew Walker, director of the Centre for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley, said: “The decimation of sleep throughout industrialized nations is having a catastrophic impact on our health, our wellness, even the safety and education of our children.”
He carries on saying this “silent sleep loss epidemic is fast becoming one of the greatest challenges we face in the 21st century”
Sleeping and resting are basic human needs as much as breathing, drinking or eating. It is urgent that we bring sleep back at the forefront of our concerns so that in turn we can be at 100% in our everyday life. It is with that in mind that we designed our on the go pillows that combine comfort & functionality!
Here are some tips from the CDC that can improve your sleep health:
- Be consistent. Go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, including on the weekends
- Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, relaxing, and at a comfortable temperature
- Remove electronic devices, such as TVs, computers, and smart phones, from the bedroom
- Avoid large meals, caffeine, and alcohol before bedtime
- Get some exercise. Being physically active during the day can help you fall asleep more easily at night.
