Everybody deserves a good night’s sleep and the arrival of some Quieton Sleep earplugs to review certainly woke me up when the box arrived in the post.
To say that the last 18 months have been stressful would be the understatement of the past 100 years. After the horror of 2020 and the uncertainty of 2021, the need to be free of anxiety has been the first priority of humanity.
Whether people are night owls or early risers, the need for sleep is a prerequistite for health and living longer as well as surviving the fear of Covid and this ever-present pandemic.
A completely new industry has formed promising all types of cures, nostrums and ‘solutions’ for the world’s sleeping crisis. To be able to get into bed and to awake rested is now fundamental to getting through life in one piece.
The first job is to get a comfortable bed and mattress, that is crucial for rest and an environment of quietude is also important, so the noise-cancelling QuietOn Sleep ear plugs are one way to achieve silence from outside noise, be that a snoring partner, near or distant traffic or anywhere that is not the preserve of a Cisterian monk.
The world’s religions know how important silence is for one’s health and beliefs as much as the rest of the world knows how noise can shatter somebody’s peace of mind.
The QuietOn Sleep earplugs offer such solace. As many airline travellers know, noise-cancelling products are invaluable, but the unwieldiness of headphones especially when trying to sleep creates discomfort.
Earplugs are the best alternative and they work just as well in a bed as they do on a flight. Coming with a foam layer, they are easy to lodge in the ear and don’t fall out as sleepers toss from my pillow to another.
At first, it can be a little discombobulating when waking to silence and one’s own thoughts, but the very nature of a good night’s sleep means that REM and deep sleep create good dreams, so it’s like awakening to the sun shining on your face, it really feels that good.
They’re not cheap, but quality products never are and QuietOn Sleep ear plugs are meant to last, rather like the human body when it is calm and rested. Forget the price, don’t lose the excellent cradle charger then come with and enjoy sweet dreams… zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
