How To Get A Good Nights Sleep While Suffering From Hay Fever?

We are now in the middle of summer (apparently), the time of year when the temperature rises (reportedly) and people are enjoying the sunshine (hopefully). However, for millions across the country, the rise in the mercury is nothing to laugh about. Especially if you suffer from hay fever, where the warmer temperature can be a source of great discomfort, instead of all fun and games.

How To Get A Good Nights Sleep While Suffering From Hay Fever

The fact is hay fever, the most widespread allergy affecting grown-ups in the UK, can impact your life in various ways, morning, noon and night; especially considering how the condition can upset your sleeping habits. Sources say more than 50% of adult males and females struggling with an allergy like hay fever find it hard to get to sleep at night. This can affect your energy levels during the day, bring on exhaustion and diminish your cognitive abilities. Lack of sleep can also lead to stress and anxiety and contribute to depression.

However, there are steps you can take to get better sleep during hay fever season. These can involve subtle alterations in your bedtime routine which could make all the difference. For instance, it may seem fundamental, but it is recommended you try changing and washing your sheets more often. Most people only wash their bed sheets once a fortnight, but experts believe this may not be enough to eradicate the signs of allergens. If you wish to keep your sheets clear of dust or pollen, you should try cleaning them every week at a high temperature, just to be sure.

Many also feel the mattress you sleep in can play a pivotal role in alleviating the symptoms of hay fever. A conventional mattress can house literally thousands of dust mites which could aggravate allergies. However, by purchasing a high-quality mattress, you can decrease the chances of being plagued by the mites and particles, which could bring on your hay fever.

Beds Glasgow stocks the finest quality mattresses at a knockdown price. If you are looking for the perfect night sleep, we offer the widest selection of bed products, all the year round. Whichever the season, you can find the most comfortable mattress online, or in store, from Beds Glasgow.

Is Social Media Keeping Your Kids Awake?

It has always been a struggle for parents to try and get their kids to go to bed at night. They always want to stay up for “just another five minutes” and it my seem like a constant battle to get them to turn in. Especially in this day and age, where every teenager has got a mobile phone, iPhone or iPad, where they can listen to music or watch a movie or a tv show, keeping them awake at night, which seems to be an ever-growing problem.

Is Social Media Keeping Your Kids Awake

As a matter of fact, according to new research, more and more children in this country are afflicted with sleeping disorders. Many are putting the blame on using social media and watching digital devices at night-time.

The UK has seen a significant rise in the percentage of young people being admitted to hospital, suffering from sleep disorders, since 2013. Cases of children under 16 being diagnosed increased from around six and a half thousand six years ago to almost nine and a half thousand in 2018.

Many experts accept gazing at a blue screen in the dark can disrupt a child’s sleeping pattern. Some feel if young people are staying awake at night chatting with friends over social media or streaming a film when they have to get up early the next morning, it could lead to an ongoing problem, which may result in a long-term sleep disorder.

However, some experts wonder if the answer may lie in enforcing strict rules at bedtime, highlighting the importance of establishing a good sleep routine.

One of the first steps is to give children some time to unwind before going to bed. Some recommend young people cutting down how much they use their mobile prior to turning in, which could help them get a good night’s rest. Many say it is just a little change in their day to day habits, which may be the secret to a better sleep.

Did Lack Of Sleep And Skipping Breakfast Cause Pilot To Pass Out At Controls?

There have been times when we may not have had enough sleep the previous evening or skipped breakfast before going to work in the morning. However, there are some professions where not getting the proper sleep, or reporting in an empty stomach, sapping you of energy, could have disastrous consequences.

The point was brought dramatically home recently when it was reported a trainee pilot in Australia had not slept the night before and had not had a proper breakfast, was unconscious for over half an hour, during a flight.

trainee pilot in Australia

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, otherwise referred to as the ATSB, carried out a thorough investigation on the incident, involving a solo navigation flight departing from Parafield, near Adelaide to Port Augusta airport in South Australia.

The pilot had been flying for approximately 40 minutes, at a height of around 5,500ft, when he suffered a headache and turned on the autopilot. According to reports, just after relinquishing manual control of the aircraft, he suddenly fell unconscious. He was unable to receive calls from air traffic control, who tried many times to get in touch. In the end, the pilot had lost consciousness for a period of around 40 minutes.

Fortunately, the aircraft was seen by a passing plane flying over the sea close to Adelaide. The other plane noticed the pilot had woken up and provided his aircraft with an escort until it safely returned to Parafield, where he started from.

Afterwards, the investigation revealed the pilot had spoken the night before the flight about getting over a mild cold and having trouble sleeping.

It transpired that in the morning prior to taking off in Parafield, the pilot had not had any breakfast. The report also said that, during a stopover in Port Augusta, he had drunk some water, a bottle of Gatorade and ate a chocolate bar and that was all.

The incident has highlighted the risks of fatigue and lack of energy through missing food, leading the flight school training the pilot to make changes. The ATSB has stated that, before a flight, students have to say how long it has been since they last ate and what they had. They also must reveal how much they have slept in the past two days and if they have had a restless night prior to a flight.

There is no doubt being sleep deprived, or not eating properly, can affect how you do your job. It may not always have such potentially catastrophic consequences, but it can impact your concentration, drive and energy levels, affecting your performance. Therefore, it is important to get the best sleep possible to function at your full potential.

You can experience the most comfortable, refreshing sleep by choosing a bed or mattress set from Beds Glasgow. So, why don’t you come to our superstore and see what we have in stock? We can take the work out of getting a night’s sleep.

Have A Lie In And Watch A Movie At VIP Bedroom Cinema

Are you a film fan who likes nothing better than lounging around on the sofa, catching a flick with a bowl of popcorn? Do you perhaps even prefer the more relaxing option of watching a movie in bed, covered up with a blanket? You may like going to the movies and catch the latest releases, rather than staying in. However, how would you like to enjoy the best of both worlds and combine the two? Spend an evening at the cinema while tucked up in bed at the same time? It may seem like the stuff of dreams, but a new hi-tech movie house in Switzerland offer cinemagoers that very service.

So, if you want to lay down, snuggle up and watch the new Avengers movie, then head for the “VIP Bedroom Cinema”. Apart of the newly opened Pathé Switzerland complex, located in the town of Spreitenbach, close to the Swiss-German border. The concept cinema is exclusive to Switzerland, allowing movie fans to take in a feature while reclining in double beds with adjustable headrests, instead of sitting in a conventional seat. The cinema has eleven double beds available, where tickets are on sale for around 49 Swiss francs, the equivalent of £37.

The operators of the “VIP Bedroom Cinema” would like customers to know hygiene will be of paramount importance. They can be assured the sheets will always be stripped down and washed; the beds will be made between showings. Operators can also assure moviegoers they won’t have to worry about any fellow customers getting a little over excited and behaving inappropriately during the screening. It is just a place where you can enjoy a movie in luxury and comfort, while covered up in a duvet.

There are no such bedroom cinemas in Britain at the moment, but there are many luxurious cinemas where you can watch a movie on a sofa or a reclining seat, such as the Everyman cinema in Glasgow.

However, for now, if you want to take in a flick while resting on a bed, jump on a plane to Switzerland. Have a lie in while having a night out at the cinema.

Do You Live In The Most Sleep-Deprived City In Britain?

Are you having trouble sleeping, and considered it could have something to do with where you live? It may not be such a crazy idea, especially after a recent survey has named the most sleep-deprived cities in the UK. Could your neck of the woods be one of the worst places for catching some zees?

sleep deprivation

According to the research, if you live in Glasgow, you are Number One with a bullet, where residents can only manage an average of three hours and 49 minutes a night. This is despite the fact the NHS recommends you should have around eight hours sleep every evening for a full, healthy life.

However, many cities achieve nowhere near. As a matter of fact, those mentioned amongst the most sleep deprived in the country only achieve half as much.

Studies say the people of Manchester sleep an average of four hours and five minutes a night. Birmingham is one of the most restless cities in the UK, where folk manage four hours and ten minutes. The populace of Nottingham sleeps around four and a quarter hour while Southampton residents rest four hours and twenty minutes.

However, even some parts of the country said to be at the other end of the sleep spectrum do not achieve the full eight hours. For instance, the people of Bristol have been called the soundest sleepers in the UK, but they only sleep five and a quarter hours.

There are other busting major cities which have surprisingly low rates of sleep deprivation. Who could have predicted cities that never sleep like London, Newcastle, and Liverpool, as well as the Scottish capital Edinburgh, could have healthy sleep patterns? However, on the other hand, it only stands to reason a fast-moving city like Glasgow would have an issue with sleep deprivation.

If you are living in and around the city and experiencing sleepless nights, we could offer the ideal solution. Beds Glasgow provides the perfect choice of bed products to rest your head. It could be just the thing to reverse the trend for your poor sleep habits.

Former Snooker Champ Facing New Battle Over Insomnia

How many times have you had trouble sleeping and had to go to work the next day? Did you feel like it affected your performance? Were you walking around in a daze and couldn’t keep your mind on your job? If you are experiencing sleeping problems, it can impact how you function, whichever the activity. It can also affect people from all walks of life, be they businessmen, workers or celebrities.

Snooker player Graeme Dott

One person in the public eye who has spoken about their issues with insomnia is the Snooker player Graeme Dott. The former world champion from Larkhall in Lanarkshire has disclosed how he sought professional help. Mr Dott, 41 years old, has attended a sleep clinic to try and conquer his long-term sleep problems. It is a chronic, crippling condition which the ex-champ feels has disrupted his career. This comes after Dott was surprisingly knocked out in the first round of the World Championships at the Crucible in Sheffield. A shock defeat which many put down to lack of sleep. However, Dott has vowed not to let his affliction get the best of him and is resolved to make a comeback.

The 2006 champion, now ranked No 21 in the world, has revealed he has been living with his disorder for eight years. Dott has stated that, while in the throes of his condition, he has been known to wake up 20 times and may only manage two hours of sleep a night. He even struggles to take a nap and never achieves deep sleep, waking up just before he reaches that point. This leaves him feeling exhausted the next day, which can affect his concentration. An important part of any snooker players game, which can be sorely affected if you do not have a good night’s rest.

Graeme Dott is dedicated to bouncing back from his defeat at the Crucible and battling his sleep disorder head-on. If you are also living with insomnia, you too can fight like a champion and turn your life around. The first step can be buying the right bed and mattress set. We have a varied selection of comfortable, luxury bed products to help you overcome your sleep problems. Why don’t you come and see?
