I have difficulty sleeping most nights, my husband’s snoring is very loud, think a Boeing 747 flying very low above your house, Ok a slight exaggeration but it is loud. I also have the added problem of constant back pain which wakes me up frequently. I was surprised that so many other people had problems sleeping too, A sleep study showed that over three quarters (79%) of those surveyed admitted to experiencing personal sleep issues, with the most common problems being snoring (51%), excessive sweating (41%) and sleep talking (30%).
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, Silentnight’s sleep expert and a sleep therapist at Capio Nightingale Hospital, said: “Sleep is crucial to our health and well-being and it is clear from the findings that lack of quality sleep is making a real impact on people’s lives – from absence from work, decreased concentration levels and arguments in the home.
“A few simple steps can make a huge difference to getting a good night’s sleep. Switching off from work and social media channels an hour before bed, taking the time to unwind, eating a balanced diet and making sure that our sleep environment is as tranquil as possible are all positive steps in the right direction.
“This is why I have joined forces with Silentnight to launch its first online Sleep Clinic. I will be providing personalised sleep plans for ten recruits suffering from everyday sleep issues. The Sleep Clinic is aimed at educating people across the UK that a few simple techniques can help the nation get a great night’s sleep every night.”
Working with resident sleep expert, Dr Nerina, Silentnight is searching for ten people with everyday sleep issues to take part in a four week Sleep Clinic.
Each participant will receive a personalised sleep plan from Dr Nerina, a Silentnight bed, tailored to their specific sleep issue, and asked to provide feedback about their experiences via weekly video diaries hosted on the Silentnight website.
All of the information and sleep plans will also be available for people to follow along at home.
Nick Booth, Marketing Director at Silentnight, said: “From our partnership with Dr Nerina, to the research and development that we invest into our product range, at Silentnight we are dedicated to helping the nation get a great night’s sleep.”
