Throughout March it's National Bed Month - time for a lie in before learning about the importance of a good night's sleep!
Organised by The Sleep Council, the month aims to remind us all of why a sound sleep is good for our health.
Forget the old saying that if "You snooze, you loose." 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!
I love it when I've changed the bed linen and it has that lovely spring fresh smell. There's no better time to snuggle up under a cosy duvet! There are also lots of hints and tips on how you can improve your night time regime and get more shut eye.
So lie back, relax, and have much more than forty winks this National Bed Month!
