Most sleep experts will recommend between seven and nine hours of sleep. Some people shrug off this suggestion as a mere guideline and assume that the primary drawback of a lack of sleep is yawning. The dangers of not sleeping, however, go far deeper than a day or two of exhaustion. Your bed is actually a place where good mental health both begins and ends. Therefore, it is crucial not only that you are sleeping enough, but also that you are sleeping well.
Poor quality sleep is linked to memory issues, high blood pressure, weight gain, a weak immune system, poor balance and a higher risk of on the job injuries. In other words, sleep is absolutely essential to fostering a healthy daily life. On low sleep, your brain is essentially working at half capacity. This can lead to a general "dumbing down" effect, which is particularly dangerous if you work at a job that requires strong mental capabilities.
Furthermore, a lack of high-quality sleep over a long period of time can age your skin, in addition to causing depression and obesity. When you regularly achieve a healthy amount of sleep on a comfortable bed, then you can receive the many benefits of a sleep-filled life. This includes a stronger immune system, or fewer colds and flues. Your mental wellbeing will also receive a boost, as sleep is directly linked to higher moods and lower stress levels.
A good mattress
Other than simply making more time for sleep, there are other ways to achieve that perfect night of rest. Most important is the place where this sleep is taking place - most commonly known as the bed. Reinforced beds are incredibly beneficial for overweight individuals, who number over half of the United Kingdom's population. Our mattresses provide a heavier sleeper both extra support and a longer mattress life, each of which would benefit that individual's long term sleeping patterns. The prolonged use of our mattresses is also cost-effective, as they will not need to be replaced as soon as other mattresses.
We spend, on average, a third of our lives in bed. Bearing this in mind, it is critical to choose a bed that works for you. Many of our customers are not overweight, and still reap the benefits of our reinforced beds. Not only do our beds support heavier weights, but they are incredibly elegant and provide a unique aesthetic to any bedroom.
