  • What to eat before bed for a great night’s sleep

    What to eat to guarantee a great night's sleep!

    There are many aspects of everyday life that can have an impact on the quality of our sleep. What you eat and drink, not just before dinner but throughout the day, can affect the way we sleep. Check out our tips below for a better night’s sleep tonight!

    We all know that ‘Breakfast’ means ‘breaking the fast’ and are always being told that it’s the most important meal of the day. But did you know your evening meal is also highly important? It’s imperative to eat enough at dinnertime to sustain your body throughout the night to allow you to fall in to a deep sleep. A hearty yet balanced and easy to digest meal is essential to avoid a fragmented sleep.

    great night's sleepTry to avoid foods rich in protein (meat, fish, cheese, nuts and lentils) later in the day as they tend to heighten alertness. Eat your protein at lunchtime instead and aim for complex carbohydrates such as brown rice or sweet potatoes for dinner along with dairy products which are also known to promote sleep. Try eating two to three hours before heading to bed to give your body chance to digest your evening meal.

    cup of herbal tea

    It sounds obvious but try to avoid caffeine before bed; if possible try to avoid it after noon or at least 5 hours before bedtime to guarantee a good night’s sleep. Instead, opt for herbal teas containing chamomile, lavender or valerian which are all plants known for their calming effects and can actually help aid sleep.

    We've all experienced the drowsy feeling and instantly falling asleep after a few glasses of wine. However, although alcohol can quickly send you to sleep, it does interfere with the quality of sleep later on. Sleep is lighter and interrupted with frequent waking through the night which won’t set you up for a good day!

    What do you eat to get a good night’s sleep? Are you a caffeine fiend or a herbal tea lover? Tell us what you think!

  • National Bed Month March 2015

    National Bed Month has now been running for more than 20 years andThe Sleep Council promotes the importance of staying healthy with the help of a good night’s sleep. The awareness campaign by The Sleep Council began in 1990 with the intention of using retailers like Memory Foam Warehouse to endorse the need for a comfortable sleeping environment

    Lisa Artis, spokesperson for the Sleep Council explains, ‘we are urging all retailers to get behind this annual promotion. It’s a great opportunity to promote the importance of a good, comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep’. The campaign is primarily an educational tool for the consumer, relaying the importance of a good mattress which should always be replaced when needed.

    The Sleep Council is a useful source of knowledge for consumers looking for a bed or mattress and what they should consider. The campaign not only raises awareness of the importance of a good night’s sleep for optimum health and wellbeing but provides helpful advice and tips to improve the quality of your sleep.

    Choosing the right bed can be trickNational Bed Federation Approvedy but if you follow The Sleep Council’s advice then you can look forward to great night’s sleep. As mattress buying is a big investment, consumers want to feel reassured they have bought a quality product. Simply look out for the ‘big tick logo’ and you will know that you have bought a bed from a safe and honest bed manufacturer. Created by the National Bed Federation, the ‘NBF approved’ logo means that bed manufacturers have been independently audited and authenticated as producers of hygienic and high quality mattresses. Jessica Alexander puts it simply, ‘The new NBF Approved logo means people can buy a mattress in the certain knowledge that it is safe, clean and honest.’

    This year, The Sleep Council have also released a revision of their famous Bed Buyers Guide. As demand for information on how to choose the right bed remains higher than ever, the guide gives consumers all the relevant advice needed to make an informed purchase. You can access the guide online from The Sleep Council’s website.

    Memory Foam Warehouse have an extensive range of NBF approved memory foam mattresses, providing a comfortable sleep night after night. With a shared dedication of highlighting the importance of a safe and hygienic sleeping environment, all our mattresses offer unique health benefits so you can wake up feeling refreshed.

  • Celebrating sleep for National Bed Month

    Join us this March to celebrate National Bed Month!

    This month at Memory Foam Warehouse, we're celebrating National Bed Month!

    National Bed Month is organised by The Sleep Council and reinforces our belief in how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. Spring represents new beginnings so March is the perfect time to contemplate your own health and well-being. One of the most important factors for overall well-being is undoubtedly getting a good nights sleep. Adequate sleep (as part of a healthy lifestyle) is proven to improve your concentration, performance at work, happiness, skin, weight and much more.

    Good nights sleep

    Here at Memory Foam Warehouse we love nothing more than sleep. There is no better feeling than getting in to a freshly changed bed and sinking in to a memory foam mattress. However, if you get in to bed and don’t feel this sense of comfort, it may be time to invest in a new bed or mattress (or both!).

    Before deciding whether it's time to upgrade your bed and mattress, we would advise answering the questions below from The Sleep Council

    Is the bed seven years old or more?
    Would it be embarrassing if neighbours saw it without its covers?
    Does it make suspicious noises in the night?
    Did you have your best recent night’s sleep in a bed other than yours?
    Are you waking up more frequently unrefreshed and aching?
    Do you and your partner roll towards each unintentionally in the middle of the night?
    Do you have enough space to sleep comfortably?
    Is it sagging?
    Are the legs or castors worn out?
    Does it feel lumpy in the night?

    If you answered 'yes' to five or more of these questions, we would recommend it's time to start looking for a new bed and mattress!

    To celebrate National Bed Month, Memory Foam Warehouse is offering 10% off every bed frame when purchased with a mattress of the same size.

  • Everyone’s Talking About Memory Foam Mattress Toppers!

    Have you tried a memory foam mattress topper yet?

    If not, it’s time to wake up and join the mattress topper revolution! Adding a topper to your mattress will create a sumptuous sleeping environment and can help to alleviate aches and pains.. you'll never want to get out of bed again! We recently heard a memory foam discussion on Heart FM in which the presenter expresses his excitement at buying a memory foam mattress topper. It seems the people of Yorkshire are pretty excited about memory foam too! You can listen to the full clip here:

    We always advise our customers that a memory foam mattress topper cannot solve the problem of an old dipped or damaged mattress. We do however, recommend a mattress topper to aid pressure relief and act as an additional layer of comfort to a firm or tired mattress. If your mattress is in a bad condition with lumps or dips then we would recommend a new memory foam mattress.

    Memory Foam Mattress Topper

    We stock a wide range of memory foam mattress toppers with a variety in density and thickness and a choice of covers for heat regulation during the night. You can read a bit more about how to select the right memory foam topper for you in our previous post 'How to Choose a Memory Foam Mattress Topper'. Or read for yourself on our review sites! The Memory Foam Warehouse has over 10,000 independent reviews across Feefo, Review Centre and Trust Pilot so you can find out what our customers are saying about our mattress toppers.

  • New Range Launch! 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattress Range

    Memory Foam Warehouse is proud to present our new 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattress Range: For Cooling Comfort throughout the night. This new 4G memory foam mattress will revolutionise your sleep with its innovation in foam technology. With this new range recently launched, we thought we’d share some more information on this amazing memory foam mattress and its benefits.

    4G Memory Foam Mattress

    Standard memory foam features a fully responsive design and offers a range of health benefits that promote a quality sleep. Memory foam moulds to the contours of your body, reacting to movement and body temperature and eliminating pressure points. However, due to the cell formation of memory foam and its absorption of body heat during the night, your sleeping environment can get a little warm. Whilst this can be alleviated with the use of a heat regulating Coolmax or Outlast mattress cover, a 4G HD Memory Foam Mattress provides a direct cooling solution in the advanced design of the foam.

    The unique open cell structure of 4G HD Memory Foam prevents the foam from compressing when bodyweight is applied. The ventilated structure creates a conductive pathway for body heat to pass through the mattress, creating a cooler sleeping environment. This is also enhanced by the gel particles infused in the memory foam, working with the aerated design to bring you cooling comfort all night long. The 4G design also reacts much faster to heat meaning the memory foam relaxes quickly in response to your body, reducing stiffness and creating a restful and comfortable sleep environment.

    All our 4th Generation HD Memory Foam Mattresses also include an antibacterial Adaptive Purotex mattress cover which works to combat common night time allergies. Purotex is an active probiotic which is woven in to the fabric to absorb mositure and eliminate dust mites so you can enjoy a healthy and restful sleep as well as experiencing superior comfort.

    4G Memory Foam Matress

    Why not see for yourself and enjoy a cooling, comforting night's sleep with a 4G HD Memory Foam Mattress today! As an introductory promotion we are offering £50 off each mattress in the 4G range including the 4G Deluxe, 4G Ultra and 4G Pocket. Enter voucher code '4GINTRO' at checkout to redeem. Terms and conditions apply.
