Everyone knows that lack of sleep can lead to a multitude of problems. Not getting enough shut-eye can lead to irritability, sluggishness, forgetfulness, and simply having a terrible day that never seems to end.
Most adults know that they need 7-8 hours of good quality sleep every night. However, most adults don’t always follow through with getting the recommended hours of rest. Usually this is due to “life” getting in the way, but frequently adults choose to not allow themselves enough time to get proper relaxation and actually dream. In a world full of screens, the temptation to watch tv, or play on a phone, often takes the place of quality sleep.
The below health benefits from getting the appropriate amount of rest may help adults turn off their screens, and allow more time for slumber:
- Sleep May Help Prevent Cancer
- Sleep Reduces Stress
- Sleep Reduces Inflammation
- Sleep Makes You More Alert
- Sleep Improves Your Memory
- Sleep May Help You Lose Weight
- Sleep May Reduce Your Risk of Depression
As adults age, they need to be more aware of how they treat their bodies, and this includes sleep, and the amount of time they put aside daily for it. The above list are all ailments that affect adults at one time or another.
It can be difficult to fall asleep when stressed. Turning off the mind for sleep sometimes feels impossible, even when exhausted. One way to ease this stress, and invite sleep, is as simple as changing out your current pillow for a memory foam option. The Double Airflow pillow is made using ventilated visco foam and mesh trim to provide a continuous airflow. This helps eliminate nervous tension caused from common head, neck, and shoulder pain.
The Double Airflow provides comfortable all-night sleep that will help you wake up feeling alert, not stressed.
For some, more than a change in pillow is needed to entice, and ensure, a full 7-8 hours of sleep. Many adults are at risk for, or are currently living with obesity, heart disease and infections. A new mattress may be in order to get the full amount of rest needed to be healthy. Mattresses aren’t cheap, and as such, many adults put off purchasing a new one when needed. The Ultraplush mattress is a solution for those that need full body comfort to get more sleep without spending thousands of dollars. The viscoelastic construction contours to your body shape and unique sleeping style, such as a side sleeper. The motion isolation helps you stay asleep even with partners. This means there will be no more waking up in the middle of the night, and you won’t want to get out of bed...ever.
Adults can take steps to get the proper amount of rest needed to be happy and healthy. Knowing the health benefits associated with more sleep may be the push you need to put down your screen, and focus on getting some ZZZs.
