What price do you put on a decent night’s sleep?

Consult any Doctor and they will tell you that diet, exercise and sleep are the three pillars of good health

We spend a mind boggling amount of money on diets and exercise but a surprising number of us put up with night after night of poor quality sleep.

One of the most commonly held misconceptions about getting older is that we need less sleep. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation of America, sleep needs remain relatively constant during adulthood but problems getting to sleep and staying asleep increase with age. We know that sleep plays a crucial part in our health and wellbeing; getting enough good quality sleep can help keep us feeling and looking younger. ‘Beauty sleep’ is a reality, if you are not getting enough sleep your face is probably giving it away – sleep is the time when the body repairs and regenerates, nowhere is this more evident than in the face.

So, if you’re a Silversurfer looking for a way to get more good quality sleep to counteract the effects of ageing what can you do? There are a number of simple things – a regular bedtime routine, avoiding caffeine, not eating too late, keeping electronic devices out of the bedroom, getting the temperature right (not too hot), and making sure you are as comfortable as possible. This last one is where the Gx Suspension Pillow can make a real difference.

When Alexander Miles was looking to help his daughter Georgia recover from a horrendous accident it was impossible to find a pillow that supported her head and neck to keep her comfortable all through the night. Having purchased and dissected every pillow known to man, Alex, a furniture and domestic product designer, decided to engineer his own solution and the Gx Suspension Pillow was born.

The breakthrough came when Alex realised that pillows, whether hollow fibre, foam, or feather and down, all spread out and flatten down as the weight of the head rests on them. This flattening progresses through the night, leaving the head and neck poorly supported and leading to the unfortunately familiar routine of ‘pillow-punching’, that irritating activity we all recognise, as, half-awake and fully disturbed, we try and rearrange our pillows in the middle of the night. Alex’s innovative solution acts to counter the natural spread of a pillow; a system of internal ties hold the filling in place and pull it in and up to cradle the head and neck and provide extra comfort and support that lasts through the night. You might shift in your sleep but the pillow keeps its shape, ensuring that you get the maximum benefit from a long and undisturbed night’s sleep. You can read more about the amazing Gx Pillows story on the website.

Investing a few pounds the Gx Suspension Pillow might just be the best decision you make this year. Alex’s ability to assist in his daughter’s recuperation was, in his words ‘priceless’; the question is, what price do you put on a decent night’s sleep?

At £27 each, and extra savings for twin and family packs, Alex has put quality pillows in everyone’s price range, buy yours now at
