This year’s theme for the world sleep day 2020 is Better sleep. Better life. Better planet. Sleeping better not only impacts our nights but also our days regardless of where on this planet we live. The level of sleep quality differs from country to country but one thing is true across the globe—we don’t sleep enough and aren’t enjoying the restorative sleep we need and deserve.
How well are we sleeping?
In 2019 Philips made a Global Sleep Survey which was answered by 11,000 adults from 12 countries. This survey is showing clearly that across the world we are experiencing a sleep problem that needs to be addressed.
Over 60% of adults don’t sleep well and 80% say that they want to sleep better.
Of the recommended 8 hours per night we on average only sleep 6.8 hours on weekdays. Missing out on 1-2 hours a sleep per night can impact our motor and cognitive functions in the same ways as not sleeping for a full day or two.
49% of people don’t feel that they get enough sleep.
There is a clear link between sleep and health, sleep deprivation can cause long-term health conditions such as diabetes, heart problems and a weakened immune defence. But there are actions we can take to turn the trend and to start to sleep better.

What does Better sleep and better life mean to Dagsmejan?
At Dagsmejan we don’t consider ourselves a sleepwear company but rather a sleep company. Our mission is to help to improve our sleep with the help of what is closest to our skin during a third of our lives — our pyjamas.
That’s why we have developed different collections based on your physiological sleep needs so that you can find a sleep solution that works for you.
We have 3 collections that are based on thermoregulation, enabling you to keep the best temperature for sleep without night sweats. Around a third of people have a tendency to overheat during the night and around a quarter tend to get cold, many are also both hot and cold at night. Ambient temperature and season can of course also impact and create new sleep challenges. During the night we are more sensitive to temperature fluctuations and sweating while sleeping decrease our sleep quality, with Dagsmejan you can stay longer in the ideal climatic comfort zone for a deeper and longer sleep.
