Holidaymakers ‘miss their own beds abroad’
Those heading off on holidays this year may find they are glad to get back to their own mattresses on their return.
A study by HolidayExtras.com discovered that 29 per cent of travellers find unfamiliar beds difficult to sleep in, with women finding it harder than men to nod off away from home.
Managing editor of the site Mike Whiting stated: “A third of people in the UK have bouts of insomnia and sometimes being in a different bed or a different place is all it takes to disturb someone’s sleep.”
However, the fresh air and sunshine many people enjoy on a break were cited by 32 per cent as contributing to them actually getting better rest when they are abroad.
According to the airline parking specialist, 11 per cent suggested that escaping daily worries can improve sleep in far flung destinations.
Director of the Stress Management Society Neil Shah recently highlighted the fact that finding it hard to rest at night can be linked to feeling stressed, advocating relaxing evening routines as a way to unwind.
