“With my busy schedule, I can attest, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as eight precious hours of sleep,” said Taniya Nayak, Interior Designer, HGTV. “Sharing tips on the perfect sleep décor and the benefits of having sheets washed in Downy are great ways to help ensure that restful sleep is attainable for everyone!”
Of course, there are nights when even a soothing, scented sleep environment can’t shut off the mind, and for those nights of occasional sleeplessness, consumers can count on non-habit forming ZzzQuil from the trusted makers of Vicks
. ZzzQuil contains diphenhydramine HCI, which helps reduce the time it takes for a person to fall asleep so they can wake up feeling refreshed.
“People who occasionally have trouble sleeping may benefit from lifestyle changes, such as setting up a soothing sleep environment,” said Joseph Ojile, MD, National Sleep Foundation Board Member. “However, sometimes it can still be difficult to fall asleep, and that’s when over-the-counter sleep-aids containing diphenhydramine HCI can be a good option to treat occasional sleeplessness.”
