Must Have Women’s Travel Accessories: The Sleep Mask

Achieving a good night's sleep is one of the most basic and beneficial ways we can stay healthy, both mentally and physically. We all know what it's like to get a bad night's sleep – and the effects it has on us the next day: mood swings, forgetfulness, tiredness, clumsiness and, of course, those dreaded bags under our eyes. At the best of times, in our own comfortable beds, it can be hard enough to get our required 8 hours – let alone while travelling on a plane or train. So how can we aid ourselves in achieving that much sought after sleep while travelling? They've been around for years, but how many of us own or use one of these classic travel products? The sleep mask.

Travel, whether it be for business or leisure, is full of many upsides – expanded knowledge, experience of cultures, time away from the monotonous hustle and bustle of daily life, and of course, the ability to...SHOP! But there are downsides, and one of them is the lack of your usual, comfortable bedroom. And the worst of this comes during the actual travel. Stuck in a cabin with countless other people, the continuous sounds inside the plane, and of course the biggest contributor to lack of sleep – the constantly changing light.

Research shows that a dark room contributes to better sleep, and the American National Sleep Foundation suggests that the use of a sleep mask is one of the most cost efficient ways to recreate the 'dark room' experience. And if you need some convincing on the importance of sleep – Harvard Medical School states that getting a regular 7 – 8 hours of good quality sleep will benefit your memory, weight, safety, mood, cardiovascular health and immunity. So don't skimp out on your sleep – jump onto the Ciao Bella store and grab yourself the must have women's travel product for your next trip, the sleep mask, today!
