Did you know that we spend roughly a third of our lives sleeping? Yes indeed, if we are all getting our recommended seven to eight hours of shut eye every night, then we spend a third of our time up close and personal with the bedding that we have chosen.
Northern Nights was created with this astonishing fact in mind. This range comprises fabulous cotton bedding in a variety of thread counts, with stylish designs to boot. Here are just some of the benefits of choosing cotton bedding from Northern Nights:
There’s no need to fuss over the maintenance of this bedding. The sheets are all machine washable which is incredibly convenient.
Cool as a cucumber
Cotton has a naturally cool feel to it, which is just the ticket for anyone who finds they got uncomfortably warm in their sleep.
Kind to allergy sufferers
Naturally hypoallergenic, cotton is not associated with causing any allergies and can be a great solution for anyone who suffers from asthma or rhinitis.
Even without the use of products such as fabric softeners, cotton has a naturally smooth and soft texture, which really invites you to burrow in for a great night’s sleep.

Now that your bedding is sorted, there are quite a few other factors you should consider to ensure you can enjoy a restful night…
Put the phone away
Blue light which is emitted by phones, tablets and other electronic devices has been known to affect sleep patterns and circadian rhythms. It’s worth putting your phone away and pulling out a book or a magazine instead to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed.
Switch off and relax
There are a number of ways to help yourself to relax, and to switch your brain off from worrying about the next day’s deadlines, whether the kids have their homework done, or whether or not you turned the iron off.
If you love your hot drinks but don’t want to risk caffeine interrupting your bedtime routine, try these caffeine-free fruity teas from Whittard of Chelsea.
