A study done in Japan in 2009 found that male workers who regularly hit the hay before midnight saw a number of health benefits, including healthier coronary arteries than those who were night owls, so grab a sooner slumber tonight! If you have been looking for beds for sale Blackpool wide you will understand the need for a good kip, so Prestige Beds have come up with five key steps to a serene slumber.
1. Alarm for the Evening?
Alarms are a key part of our morning ritual, so why not use one for nighttime too?

You should stop using electronic devices an hour before you want to drift off, as the artificial light keeps you stimulated and awake.
