As concerns over SAD rise, so too does the demand for Earplug Shop's sleeping earplugs

We are becoming increasingly aware of SAD and the effects it can have on our health. Recently Earplug Shop, an online earplug retailer has made a connection between the concerns of SAD and the rise in demand for sleep and snoring earplugs.

It can take a while for your body to react and adapt to the transition of seasons, which can severely affect our sleeping. It has been reported that Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects up to 7% of UK residents between September and April. Those suffering from SAD may have symptoms including depression, sleep problems, lethargy, over eating, loss of concentration, social problems, anxiety and mood changes.

Managing Director of Earplug Shop, Rob Doole said: "SAD has been recognised as a major depressive disorder with a seasonal pattern. It affects people across the globe and symptoms can vary from minor to extravagant. One of the most common symptoms is experiencing sleeping problems, which we presume is why our sleep and snoring earplugs have become tremendously popular.

"We are advising people if they believe they are not sleeping as well as they have previously and believe it is connected to SAD, to wear a pair of sleep and snoring earplugs. This specific type of earplug is designed to be worn in bed and comfortably fits in the ear canal to ensure they don't fall out. They are very effective when it comes to blocking disruptive sounds heard during the night, which can in turn enable the wearer to sleep soundly."

Sleep and snoring earplugs can minimise the surrounding noise allowing wearers to wake up after a deep slumber feeling revived and ready for the next day's activities. Having a pair of sleep and snoring ear plugs like the Mack's Pillow Soft earplugs is a cost effective way of helping SAD suffers get the sleep they need.

Earplug Shop is a UK leading earplug retailer who specialises in offering customers with one of the widest selections of earplugs that can be used for a variety of occasions, including sleeping and snoring. offers a range of earplugs that can suit all ear profiles including childrens'.
