Keep it clean

Most of us like to think we live pretty clean lives. We’re much more conscious of managing and reducing the obvious health ‘pollutants’ in our lives, such as nicotine, alcohol, saturated fats and refined sugars. However increasingly this desire to live clean lives extends to minimising our daily exposure to chemicals. There’s an increasing demand...

You snooze, you lose

We’re living in more enlightened times when it comes to the relationship between our sleep and our health. Ask them, and fewer people these days would say there’s much to gain in terms of their health and performance by depriving themselves of sleep. But unfortunately, as a nation, we are still counting losses when it...

Live and breathe

Yoko Ono was once famously quoted for saying: “Art to me is breathing. If I don’t do it, I start to choke.” And Yoko is far from the only one to align what feels natural and vital to her sense of being with the vital and natural function of breathing. Bob Dylan said it about...

Tried and tested

Most friendship circles have a friend who’s particularly thorough. We’re talking about the mate that does detailed research about a product - whether they’re buying a new coffee machine or a car. Conscientiously, this person will not only look at the reviews, they’ll know how economical a product is (evaluating the initial purchase price against...

Just my cup of tea

Having a cup of tea in bed is up there as one of the great British institutions. But, while the right cup of tea can set you up for a great day, a dodgy cuppa has equal potential to get the day off to a decidedly wonky start. As every tea drinker worth their spoon...

Vitamin sleep

Never miss a beat on your daily dose of vitamins? Probably not as, for people that take vitamins, vitamins tend to be a strict part of their daily routine and wellbeing habits. And that’s fantastic, nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Except when you consider that the same people can still - mistakenly - consider their...

Dechox

Easter is around the corner and that means there’s probably a good number of people out there who have given up chocolate for Lent but, this year, the British Heart Foundation is also asking the nation to ditch chocolate for the month of March. A month long nationwide campaign, Dechox is a challenge to give...

Unique

The concept of uniqueness and a sense of individuality is something of a postmodern preoccupation. We’re always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd by adding authentic features to our homes, individual body art to our skin and fresh content to our social media feeds. At Millbrook Beds, we like things to be...

Counting sheep

Ever find yourself taking those few too many minutes to arrive in the land of nod? If so, this video might be for you... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tDQw21ntR64 While there's no counting involved, no fences and no jumping, the sheep in this video still have the mesmeric capability to lull us into a relaxed state. And the relationship...

Sick and tired

When we're unwell, our beds are our sanctuary. There's something in that moment when we resign ourselves to go to bed that brings a huge sense of relief - that moment we acknowledge that life and work can carry on for a day or so without us and we give in to our aching body....
