Sealy Deeper Sleeper – Challenge 5

Getting off to sleep can be a challenge. Occasionally there will come a night when you’ve been dying for bed all day, only to hit the pillow and be wide-awake. For me, like many others these are my most frustrating nights. With 9am lectures to attend and assignment deadlines coming up, not falling asleep at every given opportunity during the day is a necessity.I’m almost certain I’ve tried every trick in the book – counting sheep, no caffeine after 6pm, no technology at least an hour before bed and many more. Yet I still find myself tossing and turning on…

Deeper Sleeper Panel – part 4

The latest Sealy sleeper package was the stuff that dreams are made of! I’ve been desperate to try some of the products Sealy sent me and as the student on the brand’s Deeper Sleeper Panel, I got the chance to. As first term back at University came around, I was prepared for sleepless nights and the occasional early rise for them dreaded 9am lectures.

If you don’t love sleep, now is probably the time to ask yourself if you’ve ever found the perfect pillow? Everyone’s pillow preference differs, which makes it pretty tricky for manufacturers to pinpoint what it is about a pillow that aids the perfect night’s sleep.

Sealy Deeper Sleeper Panel – Part 2

As a student, finding the time to exercise is not always top on our list of priorities. No matter how many times we tell ourselves we’re going to actually spend an hour in that FREE gym in our accommodation. Or attend that Zumba or aerobics class with our super sporty flat mate. Lying in bed with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s is always going to win… However, all this was about to change when I received a huge package of yoga goodies as part of the second Sealy Deeper Sleeper Challenge. The package included a yoga DVD, a yoga…
