Sleep Your Way to Sports Success

A good fitness regime involves many things: eating the right foods, doing enough training, being motivated to keep fit, and allowing the body to adequately repair itself. However, the one often-overlooked factor in determining your fitness is probably also the most simple – sleep. Most people underestimate the power of sleeping well, and sleep can greatly influence your overall well-being, general health, and more relevantly, your athletic ability.

Memory Foam Mattress Misconceptions

Memory Foam Mattress Misconceptions

They’re used in space shuttles

It’s fairly common to find mentions of astronauts, NASA and other space-age references when looking into memory foam mattresses, which has led to the misconception that they’re used in space shuttles. The truth behind this one is slightly less sensational. Memory foam technology was indeed originally developed during a NASA research programme back in 1966, but for experimental aircraft cushions rather than space shuttle-based beds. The potential for the supportive moulding foam to be used in medical settings such as x-ray tables and hospital beds was soon noticed, and the applications for the technology grew from there.

The Mystery of Yawning

Tuesday 2nd September 2014

The Mystery of Yawning

Yawning is one of the easiest and most natural things we do – adults, unborn babies, mammals, birds, fish and reptiles all yawn. Traditionally, a yawn was thought to be an indicator of tiredness, but researchers are only just beginning to discover that this may not necessarily be true. It is only fairly recently in the last 30 years that we have begun to study in-depth what purpose a yawn serves, and surprisingly, every study seems to leave more questions than answers. Yawns are also somewhat of a phenomena – they’re contagious, sometimes they’re a reflex and uncontrollable, yet other times we can forcefully yawn at will. Read on to discover the theories behind why we yawn, why they’re contagious, and how animals can even use them as a threat to ward of predators…

The Sleeptember Challenge

The Sleeptember Challenge

Sleep deprivation really isn’t as trivial or as harmless as many would like to believe. Consistently failing to get enough sleep can increase the risk of developing serious health issues like cancer, type 2 diabetes, dementia, muscle aches, depression, and heart disease, as well as lowering your life expectancy. It is believed that over 30% of the population are sleep deprived, and worryingly, the figure is increasing every year among young people.

Sleeptember aims to raise public awareness about just how dangerous sleep deprivation is, and how you can improve your sleep hygiene. Take the challenge…

Back to School Sleep Tips

Back to School Sleep Tips

The school summer holidays are nearly over, and those long, lazy days of freedom will be replaced with hours spent back in the classroom before long. For lots of children this will be a rude awakening, literally, as summer holidays are typically a time for lie-ins and later bedtimes. Going straight back into ‘school mode’ from such giddiness can be a difficult transition, and there may be some resistance to early nights and early mornings.

Regular good quality sleep is of course important in every stage of life, but it is particularly so for school-age children as it plays such a key role in learning and all aspects of development. School is a demanding process; from the length of the day, the variety of lessons and academic expectations, to the social aspect of fitting in and co-operating with others – all-in-all there’s a lot going on. It’s certainly not a place where a tired, sleep deprived child can thrive.

So, here are some tips to make sure your child starts the new school year well-rested and ready to go.

Bed-sharing, Multiple Partners and Unwashed Sheets - Welcome to a Fresher Studentís Bedroom

Bed-sharing, Multiple Partners and Unwashed Sheets - Welcome to a Fresher Studentís Bedroom

Our latest sleep survey took a timely look at first-year university students, and unexpectedly uncovered a whole host of shocking statistics.

Polling nearly 3000 students who have recently completed their first year living at university, we found that washing bed sheets wasn’t high on the agenda, with the average time between changes some two and a half months. Almost as worrying as that was what happened in the bed throughout that debut year at university, with sleep appearing to be the last thing on a student’s mind.

5 Incredible Things People Have Done in Their Sleep
