The 2nd Sealy’s Deeper Sleeper Panel (EviesGran part 2)

26 May

I was out when the postman tried to deliver a parcel to me and after collecting it from the post office I found the contents to be a set of foldable headphones and whilst I realised they would have been sent for the 2nd Challenge for me as a member of Sealy’s 2nd Deeper Sleeper panel, there was no covering letter enclosed.

I really didn’t know how these headphones could be part of a sleep challenge but all was made clear when I reported that I had received the parcel and was told I should download an App of ‘White noise’

Aha! I see…

The idea of this sleep challenge is to try out listening to various sounds through the headphones for two weeks at bed time, to see if a deeper sleep could be achieved than from the two weeks previously without the headphones and white noise sounds.

I love the headphones which folded up into a smaller space

Many sounds were available, heavy rain, rain forest sounds, and of course the white noise…. to name but a few.

I particularly liked the heavy rain noise as it reminded me of the occasions when I have stayed in a caravan and when I’m tucked up inside my bed, all cosy, the sound of the rain hammering on the caravan roof is quite mesmerising.

The rainforest sounds also reminded me of a flight I had taken from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in a light aircraft. On the return journey, to keep our minds off the turbulence, we were encouraged to listen to sounds on our headphones and these were of rainforest sounds and I enjoyed them.

I disliked the white noise sound and could not have found it relaxing at all. When my grandson was newly born, my daughter tried playing white noise to him to try to settle him. He didn’t like it either!

I did find some of the noises relaxing and certainly sleep comes more easily when I’m relaxed and so encouraged deeper sleep,  although I couldn’t fall asleep with the headphones on, they would be uncomfortable to say the least.

Whether I slept more deeply is hard to say but all I can say is that I went off to sleep quickly and I slept well.
