Sleeping peacefully

What do you think about sleep? Is it a waste of perfectly good time when you could be doing something else? Or, do you see it as an important, restorative time for your body to rest and recover? If you answered the latter, you're right! If you choose to sleep as little as possible, however, keep reading to learn why getting a good night's sleep on the right mattress is so important.

Brain Benefits
While you sleep, your brain is hard at work. It is processing many of the things you saw and heard during the day, storing memories, and sorting new information. Have you ever gone to sleep pondering a problem, only to awaken with the solution? That's the power of mattress time!

Body Benefits
Lying down on a comfortable memory foam mattress gives your body a break. Your muscles, bones, and joints don't have to work as hard to hold you up, and they can rest comfortably while you sleep, as long as you have a supportive mattress. Your body works hard to heal itself, recover from injuries or illness, and, for kids, grow and develop while sleeping.

Consequences of Too Little Sleep
If you aren't getting enough sleep, your body and mind may truly suffer. You could experience trouble concentrating, depression, slower reaction time, short-term memory loss, and problems with judgment. Your body will also be less able to fight off illness and injury if you aren't getting the sleep you need.

You could also experience more serious consequences of not getting enough sleep on a comfortable memory foam or adjustable mattress. Inadequate sleep has been linked to decreased immune system function, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Getting enough sleep is one thing you can't overlook in your daily health routine.
