Sleep can affect many aspects of a person’s life. Lack of sleep can leave a person tired, going through waking hours with less focus and less drive. This can impact both professional and personal relationships. Perhaps some of the worse ways people are impacted by insufficient sleep are the health problems that can arise. According to WebMD, there are multiple studies that indicate serious health issues can be linked to insufficient sleep. Health.com identifies a few of these problems as things like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Getting sufficient sleep is important for everyone. Avoiding the consequences of poor sleep habits is just one benefit of sleeping enough. There are a number of benefits of sleeping well; improved memory, less chronic pain, and increased energy to name a few. Hormones are affected when a person doesn’t get enough sleep and these hormones can affect things like weight and attitude. As you can see, there are benefits and negatives when not having proper sleep.
Your mattress can impact your ability to get the right amount of sleep. That’s why choosing the right one for you is an important decision. Just because there is a sale on a mattress at a local store, doesn’t mean that mattress is the one that is best for you. In “7 Steps to Better Sleep,” The Mayo Clinic indicates just how personal mattress selection can be. After all, what is comfortable for your neighbor, may not be comfortable to you.
When purchasing a new mattress, consider the quality of the mattress and determine how long you expect it will be before you will need to replace it. A lower quality mattress will not withstand the test of time. The last thing you want to be doing is shopping again for another mattress in a year or two because the mattress you got a “good deal” on warped or lost its original comfort.
