WAKE up to World Sleep Day today and safeguard your shut-eye in these difficult times.
According to the World Sleep Society, good-quality sleep can make the world a happier place — and we’re willing to give anything a go.
But not everyone finds nodding off easy, so here’s some tips on tech that can help you snooze.
SCENT TO SLEEP: We’d love to drift off with Neom’s sleep and happiness wellbeing pod and electric diffuser was £135 now reduced to £95.
But Aromaworks USB or battery diffuser is great value at £14.99, along with Botanics Pure Essential Oil Lavender, 10ml for £6 (or buy three for the price of two), both from Boots.
LIGHT WAKE: The rude awakening of a blaring alarm can ruin the best night’s sleep.
Start the day gently with the Akai wake-up alarm radio from Robert Dyas, which simulates the light of sunrise and has five nature-inspired sounds as well as an FM radio. It currently has £4 off, now £23.99.
BEDTIME SNOREY: Listen to bedtime stories for grown-ups, relaxing ramblings or soothing sleep meditations with free podcasts designed to help you drift off.
Try out Get Sleepy, Sleep Whispers, Tracks to Relax and BBC Radio Three’s Slow Radio to see what works best for you.
All are available on Apple Podcasts and other major apps.
KEEP YOUR COOL: If hot flushes are ruining your sleep or your partner radiates heat, you can cool things down with a JML Chillmax Pillow. This is a cooling gel pad that can be inserted into your pillow case or used to cool feet. £9.99, from JMLdirect.com.
CLEVER CLOCKS: Help toddlers understand when it’s time to get up (and when it’s time to stay asleep) and the whole family will benefit.
The award-winning Tommee Tippee Ollie The Owl Groclock is down £11 to £24 at Argos.
