Following reports of increased noise complaints during the Covid-19 pandemic*, on this year’s National Quiet Day, 8th September 2021, everyone is encouraged to take a moment for themselves and enjoy some peace and serenity.
National Quiet Day takes place on the second Wednesday of September each year and encourages people to seek sanctuary in silence. National Quiet Day also raises awareness of the issue that noise has a substantial effect on our wellbeing and mental health. The benefits of quiet come in many forms, from lowering stress levels to unleashing creativity and enhancing your senses and awareness of the world around you.
Whether you go for a peaceful walk in the countryside or turn off your television in favour of playing a board game, capture how you enjoyed some quiet time and encourage others to follow in your footsteps by sharing your experience on social media with the awareness day hashtag #NationalQuietDay. There is also a chance to win a Whirlpool SupremeSilence washing machine, hosted on the official Whirlpool Instagram account (@whirlpool.co.uk) with details of how to enter displayed on the National Quiet Day website.
To support consumers in their quest for a peaceful, stress-free life, Whirlpool has developed a portfolio of appliances that operate quietly in the background, taking care of the chores and allowing the user to relax. Quiet appliances from Whirlpool include its brand new range of SupremeSilence washing machines, the W Collection built-in fridge freezers, which operate at only 32 dB(A), the lowest noise level on the market2, and Whirlpool Supreme Clean dishwashers with a dedicated Silent cycle. What’s more, with many consumers still working from home, sometimes in the kitchen, appliance noise can be an annoying interruption. However, with premium Whirlpool quiet appliances, consumers can get on with daily life, without being disturbed by the sound of an appliance.
Charmaine Warner, Brand Manager, Whirlpool, says: “The world has been a stressful place over the past 18 months, with unprecedented events and increased pressure on many of us. On National Quiet Day try to allocate some quiet time in your day, and practice self-care, to focus on what really matters in life. Peace and quiet can lower stress levels and have a positive effect on your mental health and wellbeing.
“At Whirlpool, we will continue to develop stylish, innovative and quiet appliances that enable consumers to benefit from a peaceful and stress-free home environment, ensuring noisy appliances don’t disrupt the calm ambience.”For more information on National Quiet Day, visit quietday.co.uk and follow #NationalQuietDay for updates on social media.
