Furthermore, sleeping for the recommended number of hours is vital, but what’s even more vital is how well you sleep.

Duroflex’s ‘India’s Sleepiest Page’ digital campaign

The era of high-speed internet has brought forth a lot of things. It has made things that seemed hitherto unattainable, possible. With content available in multiple formats and at one’s fingertips, content consumption has increased too. But on the flip side, content consumption in the late evenings and before bedtime has led to delayed and disturbed sleep. In order to address this issue, this World Sleep Day, Duroflex, launched the campaign, ‘India’s Sleepiest Page’, to continue its commitment to helping India sleep better. The brand brought on board footballer Sunil Chhetri, to help spread the message of adopting a good sleep routine.

As part of the campaign, the brand hosted a series of content on its digital platforms to help the audience wind down and prepare for a good night's sleep. 

The campaign is built on 3 digital films in which one can see Chhetri talking about how consuming exciting content is not going to help people sleep and that they should rather watch him do some unexciting stuff that will not energise their brain at bedtime, instead helping them wind down.
