From sweating it out on the treadmill to eating our own weight in kale and pomegranate seeds - many of us spend our days trying desperately to ditch those unwelcome and unwanted pounds that we are carrying around. Whilst exercise and healthy eating are at the heart of leading a healthy and happy lifestyle; you may be surprised to hear that the quality of your mattress plays a key role in your weight loss journey. A good quality mattress is a must if you are looking to lose weight and support your body through the changes that come with weight loss.
Sleep and hormones
When it comes to losing weight, there are two key hormones you need to know about. There are two hormones that are responsible for the regulation of hunger - leptin and ghrelin. Put simply; leptin suppresses your appetite and ghrelin increases feelings of hunger. Leptin levels in the body are reduced when you are sleep deprived, and ghrelin levels increase. Therefore, a lack of sleep leads to increased levels of hunger, which in turn leads to overeating and snacking on carbohydrate and calorie-packed foods as you are driven by hunger and sleep-deprived mind seeking comfort. This can make you feel like you are stuck in a never-ending cycle that makes your journey to weight loss seem daunting and unsuccessful.
A comfortable heavy duty mattress that is tailored to your needs is essential if you are to get the duration and quality of sleep you need in order to keep your hormones in-balance as you lose weight. Opting for a heavy-duty mattress means that your body is fully supported as your weight changes. Our Extra Firm Brick Mattress offers the firm support that many need for a good night's sleep, and with our Air Flow Topper you have the option of personalising the firmness and adding a slightly softer feel to the mattress. The combination of the mattress and the topper means that the mattress can change with you as you lose weight.
The importance of adaptability
There is more to a healthy lifestyle than simply what you eat and the exercise you participate in. Changing your mattress today and opting for a customisable heavy-duty one will ensure that your bed is able to adapt with you and your changing body weight. Your mattress should be there to support you every step of the way on your weight-loss journey, and it should offer flexibility and adaptability in order to keep you comfortable.
Sleep is a key component in realising the weight loss that you want to achieve, and a good mattress is vital to good sleep. Make the change today, and enjoy the 'new you' that emerges.
