“This annual event focuses on the effects of sleep problems and the importance of healthy sleep at every stage of the human life cycle.

He affirmed that regular sleep was not out of reach and could be achieved easily by creating certain habits that include fixing a bedtime and wake-up time, reducing screen time, especially at night, regular exercise, reduced noise and room lighting at bedtime and comfortable beddings.
“In March 2011, the socially responsible company held its inaugural edition of WSD in Nigeria. Since then, it has continually celebrated the benefits of quality sleep during WSD.
“Mouka continues to add comfort to life through its array of quality products such as wellbeing Orthopaedic mattresses, Mondeo Plus spring mattress, and an assortment of pillows to help Nigerians sleep well and wake up refreshed.”
