Improve your sleep this autumn

27 Sep 2018 12:23:49

A good night’s rest is essential to our health but many of us struggle to get the amount we need. Fortunately, making some simple changes to your bedtime habits can have a profound impact on how well you sleep.

Cooler evenings, darker nights and cosy night-clothes are some of the reasons why autumn should be one of the best seasons to get a good night’s sleep, However, according to research, one in five of us still aren’t getting the rest we need.

Improve your sleep this autumn

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. But how can we ensure that we get enough? Here are some simple tips which may help:

1. Try, as much as possible, to have a regular bedtime as this helps to set your internal body clock.

2. Create a restful sleeping environment. Your bedroom should be neither too hot, nor too cold; and as quiet and dark as possible.

3. Create a good sleep environment by removing TV’s and technical devices from your bedroom.

4. Make sure your bed is comfortable. It’s difficult to get deep, restful sleep if it’s too soft, too hard, too small or too old.

5. Try to relax before going to bed with a warm bath. Adding a few drops of lavender oil to the water may help you sleep better. Spraying your pillow or bedding with a slumber mist can also help you to relax and unwind at bedtime.

Spray a few drops on your pillow at bedtime

6. Take more exercise. Regular, moderate exercise such as swimming or walking can help relieve the day’s stresses and strains. But not too close to bedtime as it may keep you awake.

7. Avoid caffeine in tea, coffee or cola in the evening. It interferes with falling asleep and prevents deep sleep. Have a hot milky drink or herbal tea instead.

8. Too much food or alcohol, especially late at night, can play havoc with sleep patterns. Alcohol may help you fall asleep initially, but will interrupt your sleep later on in the night.

9. Try wearing bed socks. According to Swiss researchers, you are more likely to fall asleep quickly if your feet and hands are warm.

Keeping your feet warm can help you fall asleep

10. If you can’t sleep, don’t lie there worrying about it. Get up and do something you find relaxing until you feel sleepy again - then go back to bed.

What to wear on an autumn walk

21 Sep 2018 11:59:39

Autumn is a wonderful time for walking. The air is crisp, the leaves are crunchy beneath your feet and the British countryside comes alive with a kaleidoscope of colours.

Autumn is a wonderful time for walking. The air is crisp, the leaves are crunchy beneath your feet and the British countryside comes alive with a kaleidoscope of colours. Weather wise however, it can be an unpredictable season with it warm and sunny one day and cold and wet the next. Thankfully, Cosyfeet has a range of footwear and socks to ensure you’re properly dressed for every eventuality.

Perfect for tackling the cold and rain, our 100% waterproof footwear for men and women is also breathable and windproof to ensure your feet stay warm and dry, however bad the weather gets. Choose from Moose and Minnie for women or Stanley and Livingstone for men.

Moose in Petrol Blue for Women and Stanley in Moorland for Men

Designed for more challenging conditions, our Minnie High-Performance and Moose High-Performance waterproof styles have a special ‘self-clearing’ tread that works extremely well in mud, ice and snow. The deep cleats and heel profile provide good grip, so the footwear is very stable when you’re walking on uneven surfaces.

Moose High-Performance in Graphite for Women

We’ve also got some stylish boots that are perfect for strolling on milder days. Joanna, Megan and Markle are contemporary boots with lots of room for swollen feet while Julia has a stretchy front that’s ideal for fitting bunions or problem toes.

Megan in Cranberry for Women

For men, we have Alex, a soft, leather boot with lots of support and a deep toe area which is ideal if you have a bunion or hammer toe.

Alex in Oxblood for Men

Wearing the right sock is equally important for foot comfort. Our ultra-comfy Cape Mohair® Medi Sock is great for walking as it’s lightweight and breathable and has natural climate control. It also resists foot odour and wicks away moisture, keeping feet fresh and dry. It’s cushioned at the heel, for extra comfort, so it’s ideal if you’re sensitive underfoot.

If you need some extra support, why not look at our walking collection which includes hiking poles, rollators and walking sticks.

Going organic is good for you

9 Sep 2018 09:00:00

September is Organic Month, so we’ve been looking at the benefits that buying organic can bring both to our health and the environment.

Organic September is a month-long campaign which aims to raise awareness of organic products and the brands, producers and farmers who bring them to us in the UK.

Organic food

We’ve been looking at the benefits that buying organic can bring both to our health and the environment:

Benefit from more nutrients

According to recent research, organically grown foods have more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micronutrients than commercially grown foods because the soil is managed and nourished with sustainable practices by responsible standards.

Food tastes better

Organically grown foods generally taste better because nourished, well balanced soil produces healthy, strong plants.

Helps preserve our ecosystems

Organic farming supports eco-sustenance, or farming in harmony with nature. Preservation of soil and crop rotation keep farmland healthy, and chemical abstinence preserves the eco-system.

Reduces pollution and protects water and soil

Certified organic standards do not permit the use of toxic chemicals in farming and require responsible management of healthy soil and biodiversity.

What does buying organic mean?

Foods labelled as organic must meet strict regulations on how they have been grown and produced. All organic food companies and farms are inspected yearly to ensure that they meet the high standards required for organic food under European law. When you buy organic you can be sure that the products you are buying:
• Contain no artificial additives or preservatives.
• Contain fewer pesticides. There are only 20 pesticides that can be used by organic farmers all of which are derived from natural ingredients. This is compared to almost 300 pesticides used in regular farming.
• Conform to high standards of animal welfare.
• Contain no genetically modified ingredients.
• Have been produced in a way that is sustainable.

It’s easy to get involved, just look for the organic logo or why not think about growing your own! The Soil Association says that by switching just one item in your shop to organic will help contribute to changing our food system. Buying more organic food means more organic farms so fewer pesticides which is better for our wildlife and means more farm animals raised under higher welfare standards.

From castles to city halls, tunnels to tower tops, police cells to private homes, the variety of places and ways to discover them are endless.

Wells Cathedral

Wells Cathedral is offering free tours on Saturday September 8th and Saturday September 15th

Heritage Open Days is organised by a huge network of people who share a passion for places, history and culture. Locally, over 2,500 organisations and some 40,000 volunteers organise thousands of site openings and events, jointly attracting over 1 million visitors.

Same roomy fit, different terminology

5 Sep 2018 09:00:00

From September 2018, to ensure that we are consistent with UK shoe size charts (which didn’t exist when Cosyfeet started), we will be referring to our women’s EEEEE+ fitting as 6E and our men’s HH+ as 3H.

From September 2018, to ensure that we are consistent with UK shoe size charts (which didn’t exist when Cosyfeet started), we will be referring to our women’s EEEEE+ fitting as 6E and our men’s HH+ as 3H.

Please be assured that the fit of our footwear will NOT alter in any way – we will simply change the way that we refer to it.

The table below may also help:

Sizing table

It is also worth noting that due to the adjustability of a large number of Cosyfeet styles, many feet both below and above the 6E or 3H measurement can wear them securely. This is useful as feet can vary in how much they swell and it is sometimes necessary to have footwear which can be tightened or loosened during wear.

Sizing illustration



Make touch-fastening styles even roomier with strap extensions

If you have especially swollen feet, you can purchase additional strap extensions for most of our touch-fastening styles. This will allow you to lengthen the straps on Cosyfeet footwear by as much as the equivalent of at least a 9E or 6H fitting. In extreme circumstances, some customers have used two sets of strap extensions which allows for even greater girth.

Ronnie

The Ronnie slipper show with strap extensions

We also offer a last resort shoe called Rowan which is much roomier than the rest of our range and is designed to fit exceptional swelling and bandages and gives the equivalent of a 12E or 9H fitting.
