Putting your sleep health first
Forty Winks South Wharf is teaming up with a leading bedding manufacturer as part of its mission to improve the lives of locals via a better night’s sleep.
According to the ABC’s 2016 study Reboot Your Life, 75 per cent of Australians are currently having trouble falling asleep, while only 12 per cent are waking up feeling refreshed.
Forty Winks South Wharf owner Virginia Williams said the brand had teamed up with a leading bedding manufacturer AH Beard to provide customers with the best advice on how to consistently get a good night’s shut-eye.
According to AH Beard, the top five tips for helping people waking up feeling wonderful are:
Make sure you have a comfortable mattress that provides the correct support;
Make sleep a priority – sticking to a schedule helps reinforce your body’s sleep-wake cycle and can help you to fall asleep;
Create the idea sleep environment – create a room that’s ideal for sleeping to create a suitable environment for you;
Avoid caffeine before bed time – your body doesn’t store caffeine but it takes many hours to eliminate the stimulant and its effects; and
Wind down and keep a routine – do the same things each night to tell your body it’s time to wind down. Take a warm bath or shower, read a book or listen to soothing music.
With many inner-city locals leading busy and high-pressure working lives, Virginia said Forty Winks South Wharf was committed to providing a holistic approach to helping customers to get a good sleep.
Having operated at South Wharf for seven years, she said the team was well equipped to providing the right advice, service and of course, beds to the local community!
“All our team are sleep experts. Most of our team have been in the bedding industry for many years,” she said. “All our team has extensive product knowledge to help customers select the right mattress for their needs.”
“Like any industry, there are constantly new developments and new innovative technology so training and education is ongoing. This means our team can offer our customers the very best sleep solution.”
The store will host free sleep education seminars on November 12 and 13 between 2pm and 3pm with leading sleep educator Gillian Wise, who will share her insights and information on how to transform peoples’ sleeping habits.
Customers can also currently enjoy great deals across the King Koil bedding range, including package deals with adjustable bases, an up-size offer, two free King Koil pocket spring pillows upon purchase, free delivery with every purchase over $1000 and the chance to win a King Koil mattress.
Forty Winks South Wharf is located on level 1 of the DFO Homemaker Centre.
