Sleep is integral to a healthy lifestyle and it is becoming clear that the benefits of getting a good night’s sleep are far greater than we ever thought.
If you Google the phrase ‘Sleep Hygiene’ it comes up with a massive 105,000,000 results, proving just how important a good bedtime routine is to us all. The phrase refers to a variety of different practices and habits we adopt to get a good night’s rest. They can consist of anything from turning your phone off half an hour before bed, limiting stimulants later on in the day, like alcohol and caffeine, and ensuring you keep up a regular exercise routine. Adopting these healthy habits are important, but so is making sure you are armed with the best sleep products available. To celebrate ‘National Sleep Awareness Week’ in March, we have rounded up the best below.
