Together, we can redefine the menopause experience, helping you achieve restful sleep. Let's delve into how.
Enhance Your Sleep Quality with Sensory Retreats' Self-Heating Eye Mask
Are you navigating menopause and grappling with disrupted sleep? You're not alone. Many women undergo changes in their sleep patterns during this life phase, including difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restful sleep.
Menopause-related sleep disruption is prevalent, affecting around 60% of women transitioning through this important phase of their life. This is primarily due to hormonal fluctuations like oestrogen and progesterone, which are known to regulate sleep patterns.
A study published in Menopause: The Journal of The North American Menopause Society found that both sleep latency and frequent awakenings are common complaints among menopausal women. A decreased level of oestrogen can also lead to hot flashes, a typical symptom of menopause that can significantly disrupt sleep. Therefore, understanding and addressing these changes can be critical to managing your menopause journey successfully.
If this resonates with you, rest assured. There are practical strategies to enhance your sleep quality and quantity during menopause, and at Sensory Retreats, our pampering products are perfect for those little moments when anxiety raises its head, and you need a little respite.
Unwind with Heat: How Warmth Promotes Relaxation and Better Sleep for Menopausal Women
Heat therapy has long been a reliable ally in promoting relaxation and sleep. It can be especially beneficial for menopausal women. The heat from Sensory Retreats' self-heating eye masks works on two crucial levels: physical and psychological.
Physically, it helps soothe tired eyes, reducing the discomfort often associated with menopause.
Psychologically, the gentle, comforting warmth promotes relaxation, signalling the body to unwind and prepare for sleep.
The Science Behind Heat
Scientifically, heat aids in relaxing muscles and calming the nervous system, contributing to overall body relaxation. This can be particularly helpful for women experiencing anxiety or restlessness during menopause. Furthermore, the luxurious warmth of the self-heating eye mask provides a comforting cocoon, fostering an environment conducive to a peaceful, uninterrupted night's sleep.
So, if disrupted sleep is a part of your menopause journey, consider Sensory Retreats' self-heating eye mask range. Our range of self-heating eye masks creates a soothing, relaxation-promoting environment for restful sleep.
You've several options within the range, including our ASOS award-winning Luna Eyes and our GET THE GLOSS Best Buy awarded Divine Eyes.
Why not SHOP THE RANGE and pick up a self-heating eye mask infused with your favourite natural scent to relieve eye tension? As a bonus, the gentle, soothing heat also works wonders on puffiness, another common side effect of a lack of quality sleep.
