Doctors recommend seven to eight hours of quality sleep every night for optimal health. The Mattress Store can help you understand why sufficient quality sleep is so important…and we can help you find the sleep system that helps you get it.
Defining Quality Sleep
Quality sleep is undisturbed sleep that allows your brain to move through all stages of the sleep cycle (marked by various brain wave patterns). For optimal health benefits, your brain/body should complete four to five sleep cycles each night.
What Happens During Quality Sleep
Although your body is nearly paralyzed during some sleep stages, your body and brain are anything but inactive. During quality sleep your brain:
- Moves information from short- to long-term memory
- “Prunes” nerve pathways that are under- or unused for more efficient neuro-processing
At the same time, your body performs a variety of repair and restorative functions that:
- Facilitate wound and/or injury healing
- Boost immune function
- Regulate respiratory and circulatory activity
The cumulative effects of quality sleep include reduced stress, faster recovery and fewer bouts of illness.
How to Improve the Quality of Your Sleep
The quality of your sleep is enhanced when you are able to stay asleep throughout the night without tossing, turning or waking. The type of support your mattress provides can relieve pressure and provide the support you need to sleep more soundly. But not everyone has the same support needs…what are yours?
The Mattress Store is the only retailer in Las Cruces where you can find the bedMATCH™ system, which identifies your body’s unique support needs. These results are used to create a list of mattress models that will provide that ideal support for better quality sleep night after night.
