Dramatic Quarantine On The Up As Brits Reports Strange Sleep Amid Covid-19 Pandemic
Sleep experts suggest that the Covid-19 pandemic could be behind a spike in vivid, and even unusual, dreams and nightmares.
Experts at personalised bedding specialists, nanu, have reported an uplift in customers reporting extreme and unwanted dreams as one of the recent reasons they are seeking a new pillow.
Jamie Moryoussef, spokesperson for nanu, said: “Dreams are actually a key part of how our brain makes sense of our lives, and the dreams we have are generated for many different reasons; be it to process our day, make sense of something upsetting, or to handle stress and trauma. Dreaming acts like a virtual organiser, consolidating all of these issues for us while we’re in the land of nod.
“Most of us will remember few of our dreams and these dreams are rarely likely to impact how we feel once we wake up. Sadly, this may not currently be the case as this crisis continues to unfold, and anxieties around health, work, money and the future could be crossing over from our real world into our subconscious while we’re asleep.”
Nanu is a sleep specialist which creates customised pillows, duvets and pillowcases that help Brits get the best night’s sleep possible.
Experts at the brand have researched what 10 of the most common vivid dreams mean.
Nanu has also compiled some top tips for improving sleep quality during the Covid-19 crisis.
Jamie Moryoussef, comments: “The run up to bedtime has a major effect on the quality of our sleep: try to destress before your head to bed, cut back on social media browsing ahead of turning in and stick to a routine if you can.
“It’s also advisable to make your bed a real haven. Customised bedding that allows you to cocoon yourself, along with a duvet that’s the right tog so you sleep at your own ideal temperature, can really have an impact on how comfortable a good night’s sleep is.”
Nanu creates personalised pillows according to your favourite sleeping position, height, weight and preferred firmness, ensuring each individual gets their perfect night’s sleep. It also offers the Hot&Not duvet; a split duvet that can offer the individual, ideal temperature for two partners sleeping alongside one another. Get yours at https://nanusleep.co.uk/.
