Drift Sleep Top Tips for Best Sleep

Over twice as many men (12%) than women (4%) say sex helps them sleep

• Twice as many men than women say sex is the key to dreamland
• Twice as many women than men would rather read a good book
• They both agree on the right mattress

LONDON Monday 5th December: Festive cheer might by-pass a third of the UK population this year according to a survey from Drift Sleep. Grumpiness from lack of sleep affects 28% of us so with a third of us planning to go to friends or family this festive season, Drift asked the UK’s adults what they do to get a good’s night’s shut-eye.

Over twice as many men (12%) than women (4%) say sex helps them sleep, whilst more women (13%) than men (9%) say a good book is the best way to drift off. For women it’s all about the bed; the mattress tops the list with 67% saying it’s most important thing, followed by the pillow (65%) and clean sheets (51%).

Men are more likely to be able to sleep anywhere (60%) than women (40%) but there are still things keeping them awake.

Men are more likely to be affected by work worries with 17% saying they can’t stop thinking about work when trying to drop off, only 9% of women have this problem. But when it comes to Christmas games more men than women will stay awake stressing about losing the family game of Monopoly.

Adam Black, co-founder Drift Sleep says of the results, “With a third of the UK staying away from home this Christmas it’s important that people do all they can to get a good night’s rest. Despite the differences it looks like what both men and women need is a comfortable bed and clean sheets, hopefully that’s not too much to ask of the relatives!”
