Where we’re needed

Like many, at Millbrook Beds we had big plans for 2020. Our plans involved taking our fine English made products further than they’ve ever been before - both in a literal and non-literal sense. But all that’s changed for now. For now, we’re devoting our every effort to where we’re needed most, right here at...

Starting off right

So, we have a theory that the best days in lockdown are the ones that begin right. It’s not scientific in any way, but all our experience to this point tells us that if we begin our day positively, it somehow provides more momentum for it to continue that way. And - in National Stress...

National Stress Awareness Month

Few people can claim they aren’t affected by stress in some form at the moment, but timing is everything as this month marks none other than National Stress Awareness Month. Running for 30 days throughout the month of April, never could organisers and contributors to National Stress Awareness Month have foreseen the relevance and need...

“You said tomorrow yesterday!”

Struggling with motivation to keep moving in the lockdown? Most likely you began well but, as the weeks have gone on, you may have become bored with your routine - or perhaps your best exercise intentions when you walk up in the morning somehow never quite materialise.

Unless you have work to keep you occupied and, even if you’re not an especially motivated person, we’re willing to bet that you’re accomplishing your to-do list fairly early...

True endurance 

  This is normally a time of year when we might gather at the roadside and root for friends, colleagues or loved ones as they put themselves through the gruelling experience of running a marathon - or we might even run one ourselves. While the breadth and intensity of sporting events has increased in recent...

The matter of things

When it really comes down to it, it’s funny how quickly we can sift our lives into two piles: the pile of things that matter, and the pile of things that really don’t. In the extraordinary times we find ourselves in, the things that matter to us now are our families and loved ones, our...

As different as night and day

Life is different at the moment. And it became different at such a pace that few people haven’t felt thrown off balance in some way. And different times can necessitate different approaches - take our sleep for instance. It’s no news that the stress, anxiety and inactivity associated with the lockdown is adversely affecting people’s...

In light of things 

For many people, the days have lengthened recently in more ways than one. As well as the official start of Spring bringing with it longer days and lighter evenings, social distancing and self isolation have brought longer days spent in the confinement of home and - for some people - in complete solitude which can...
