You know to improve and maintain your overall health you need to eat right and exercise. But did you know that what you eat and how much you move are only part of the equation for healthy living? For optimal health, you also need sufficient quality sleep. The Mattress Store in Albuquerque, New Mexico can provide the quality mattress you need to get it.
Facts about Sleep and Health
The increase in weekly hours worked and busy-ness in family schedules mean that more and more people are not getting the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep they need each night. Recent research studies indicate a strong link between sleep deprivation and health. Conversely, sufficient quality sleep has proven health benefits, such as:
- Improved clarity and mental functioning
- Better memory retention
- Lower stress levels
- Higher immune functioning—i.e., fewer colds and other illnesses
- Reduced recovery time for injuries
- Speedier weight loss and/or healthy weight maintenance
In children, sufficient sleep may be linked to lower incidences of problem behavior, including behavior that may fall under the diagnostic criteria for ADD/ADHD.
Why a Quality Mattress Matters
Quality sleep—and getting enough of it—has the potential to boost your quality of life. But quality sleep is difficult to get without the right comfort and support. To get the seven to eight hours of restorative sleep, you need a mattress that:
- Provides the comfort you need to quickly fall asleep
- Provides the postural support your body needs to maintain alignment when your muscles reach near-paralysis during deep sleep
An old mattress, a mattress that is too hard or too soft or a mattress that allows your body to fall out of alignment during the night (a common cause of neck and back pain) will not support quality sleep.
