Exploring the Health Effects of Consistently Poor Sleep

Lazy Businessman

Those who wake up each day after a fitful sleep may be surprised to learn that their frustrating condition could be jeopardizing their physical wellbeing. If you frequently find yourself in this position, then replacing your old, worn-down mattress with a new Serta mattress or an iComfort Sleep System could be the solution to enhancing your sleep, boosting your mood, and improving your overall health. Here is a look at the health effects of consistently poor sleep:

Increased Likelihood of Chronic Diseases
After conducting various sleep studies on numerous volunteers, researchers at Harvard University concluded that long-term sleep habits are linked to certain diseases, including hypertension and diabetes. The link between poor sleep and disease is mostly attributed to the damaging side effects that poor sleep causes, which include stress, high blood pressure, and increased inflammation.

Slower Metabolism and Weight Gain
Those hoping to lower their weight may want to head to their local Serta mattress retailer to find a mattress that will promote better quality sleep. Research has shown that those who sleep longer each night are less likely to be overweight, since their bodies have an ample amount of time to regulate metabolism. Lack of sleep can also lead to increased appetite and cravings for high-fat foods.

Depression and Anxiety
For many who suffer from insomnia, it may come as no surprise that mood disorders can also develop as a result of consistently poor sleep. Common symptoms such as stress, anxiety, anger, and irrational sadness can manifest as sleep deprivation drags on day after day. That’s why it’s essential for those experiencing poor sleep to address the problem by investing in a new, more supportive mattress.

Understanding the Importance of a High-Quality Pillow

Pillows are instrumental in giving you the most restful sleep possible. Once you have identified whether you sleep on your back or side, you’re ready to begin shopping for one of the many high-quality pillows on the market. Your local furniture retailer can help you pick out the right one for your aesthetic, comfort, and health needs. Here’s a brief look at the importance of high-quality pillows to get you started on the pillow-buying process:

Spinal Alignment
Your pillow’s primary benefit is that it supports your spine as it keeps the head, neck, and back in proper alignment. Low-quality pillows are not worth the cheaper price tag, as you can end up spending time and money treating neck pain due to sleeping in uncomfortable positions. The superior construction of Serta’s iComfort line offers memory foam support to the specific areas that need it without compromising nighttime comfort. 

Comfort
No matter how effectively a pillow aligns your spine, you won’t want to sleep on it if it isn’t comfortable. With recent innovations in memory foam technology, there are no bargain-brand pillows with comfort levels that compare to today’s high-quality models. When memory foam pillows first came out, people complained that they got too warm too quickly. Now, memory foam pillows and other high-end models are built with cool preservation, ensuring maximum comfort.

Allergens
Cheap, low-quality pillows offer no protection against allergies. Pillows stuffed with down can transport allergens such as dust and dust mites. In some cases, the feathers themselves are the allergens. With high-quality pillow options, you can sidestep the sneezing by buying a hypoallergenic model.
