Bed manufacturer Sealy UK has launched a campaign to educate the nation on the best diet to follow in order to get a good night’s sleep, after its research revealed that almost half (44%) of the UK population does not realise that food has an impact on sleep quality.
The campaign, Recipe for Sleep, has been launched in partnership with registered nutritionist and influencer Rhiannon Lambert. Sealy worked with Rhiannon to create a series of recipes designed specifically to help provide a better night’s sleep – including foods containing nutrients such as tryptophan and magnesium.
All the recipes can be found on Sealy’s Recipe for Sleep website.
Holly Housby, marketing controller at Sealy UK, says: “Sleep plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy body and mind, but far too often it is being overlooked. With our research finding that the average person in the UK wakes up feeling tired four days of every week, it’s clear that we are in the middle of a sleeplessness epidemic, but for many of us, getting that elusive good night’s sleep can seem like an impossible task.
“Luckily, whether it’s by upgrading our mattress or pillows to ensure we have a comfortable sleeping environment, or looking at whether the food we’re eating is conducive to sleep, there are things we can do to make it more likely that we’ll achieve a healthy night’s sleep. Many people are unaware of the relationship between our diet and our sleep – in fact our research shows nearly half of people are unaware that nutrition impacts sleep – which is why we have launched the Recipe for Sleep campaign to help people eat their way to a better night’s sleep.”
As part of the campaign, Sealy has enlisted the help of the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa in the Lake District, to launch the UK’s first ‘sleep restaurant’, with a menu featuring an array of dishes designed full of ingredients that are scientifically proven to help diners to fall asleep. These will be available until March 2020.
