Hot and Bothered

Lack of sleep and fatigue driven by symptoms of menopause as a third of women over the age of 45 are too hot to sleep at night.
Research conducted by The Wool Room, home of the healthy sleep, has revealed that women aged 45 and above are struggling to get a good night’s sleep as a result of the menopause.
39% of females aged 45 and above, the average age of menopause onset, are too hot to sleep at night, while younger generations attribute poor sleep to being too stressed.
Symptoms of night sweats, hot flushes and insomnia will be experienced by over 70% of women going through the menopause*, and this is reflected in their sleeping patterns. Less than half of women aged 45-55+ report regularly getting a good night’s sleep compared to 54% of those aged 18-24.
Women who reported a poor night’s sleep also experienced decreased wellness as a result, with over a third of 45-55+ year olds revealing that they don’t feel healthy or well in general.
Chris Tattersall, Managing director of The Wool Room comments, “Hot flushes and night sweats are up there with the most common sleep complaints of our customers. Women are often at the end of their tether when trying to find a solution and improve their sleep. Wool bedding is the only completely natural solution that has been proven reduced both nights sweats and hot flushes during the night.”
These results come at a time when Monica Bellucci, the oldest ever Bond Girl in the latest film, Spectre, disclosed in a recent interview that “menopause is just around the corner” for her and she is taking steps to prepare for this in a natural way.
Current medical treatments for severe symptoms of menopause include Hormone Replacement Therapy, blood pressure stabilisers and antidepressants.
