National Bed Month

National Bed Month is our longest standing awareness campaign, started in 1990, and runs throughout the whole of March. It is the time of year when we like to remind everyone of the importance of getting a better night’s sleep and the role a good bed plays in achieving that.

Forget the old saying that if “You snooze, you lose.”  It’s thought that a good sleep has amazing properties that make you healthier and happier, and can even add years to your life!

At the Sleep Council website, you can find out all about the essentials you need to have the perfect sleep, and of course, the right bed should be your number one priority.

In 1988 a ground breaking study found that by switching an uncomfortable old bed to a lovely new one meant an extra 42 minutes of sleep!

You can put your own bed through an MOT at the site and find out if changing it could lead to better sleep!
