Heimtextil key topic “Sleep”: exciting products and concentrated know-how
Current studies show that an increasing number of people are sleeping badly. Researchers cite stress, noise, increasing light pollution and the permanent availability of smartphones and the like as the causes. Heimtextil (7-10 January 2020) is once again making a restorative night's sleep a key topic in order to bolster dealers’ expertise on the subject of sleep.
The number of people sleeping badly or too little has been increasing for many years now.

This comprises an increase of 111 per cent within twelve years, say the authors, who also estimate that the number of cases going unreported is actually far higher. ... mehr lesen
