The Positive Affects of a Good Nights Sleep

Sleep is an amazing and necessary part of being a human. To take care of yourself properly you need to make sure that you’re making sleep a priority and getting the recommended amount of it each night. Did you know that letting our body sleep properly every night will yield some fascinating health benefits? Here are a few amazing benefits of sleeping the recommended amount each night.

Sleep Strengthens Your Memory – During sleep your brain has time to consolidate itself with all of the skills it learned during the day and the conversations that it had. The practice of this is actually called “consolidation” so the more you sleep the better your memory is. What better way to consolidate than on a Brand New Mattress?

Art – In whatever art form you like, getting a good night’s rest on your brand new mattress bought from Mattress Superstore can give you a massive boost of creativity. Allowing your body to decompress with a good night’s sleep makes way for fresh creativity the next day.

Increases Longevity – Getting a good night’s sleep could be the secret to living longer. Studies have shown that people who get more restful sleep during the night are prone to live longer than those who don’t.

Improves Your Overall Health – Feeling run down? Sick a lot? Your sleeping patterns may have a lot to do with it. When you don’t get enough sleep your body has to strengthen your immune system with something so it uses its reserves that need to be replenished while you’re asleep. If you’ve been getting sicker more often then it might be time for a New Mattress!

Improves Focus – Are you noticing a lack of concentration? When you don’t get enough sleep your brain can end up having trouble focusing on the task at hand or just in general. Hitting the hay early and sleeping enough will let your brain and body unwind so it can focus the next day.

Improves Mental Health – Not getting enough sleep can cause some frustration and mood swings along with irritability and sometimes depression symptoms. If you need to improve your mood, getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep nightly will manage your mood better and make you healthier in general.

Helps Manage Your Weight – If you’re looking to be more active, and also manage your weight loss then getting the recommended amount of sleep at night can help you be more successful in your weight loss journey. Studies have shown that adults who get more sleep will have an easier time losing weight, managing it, and keeping it off than those who did not get enough sleep.

These are just some of the benefits that getting enough sleep can have on your body. The possibilities are endless and they just generally improve your health. If you’re still having a hard time sleeping then head down to Mattress Superstore and get one of the best mattresses at a Discount Price that Massachusetts has to offer!

How To Prepare For A Good Night’s Sleep

Feeling restless? Try using one of these methods to get a better night’s sleep!

1. Have A Snack – Walnuts are loaded with sleep-inducing tryptophan which is an amino acid that helps with the production of melatonin and serotonin. These two chemicals that are naturally occurring in your body help to make your body sleepy and promote a good night’s sleep. Almonds are another sleep-inducing snack containing a lot of magnesium which is essential for a Good Night’s Sleep.
2. Drinks Some Tea – Tea has amazing health benefits in itself no matter what kind you drink, but sipping on some chamomile tea can help promote a healthy night’s sleep and relax you as it has natural sedative properties. Valerian root tea can also have the same effects – so the next time you’re feeling restless drink a cup of tea!
3. Aromatherapy – Certain scents have been proven to promote relaxation and induce sleep, as well as energize and refresh. An essential oil diffuser could be something that you keep next to your new bedside after you purchase your New Mattress for sleepless nights or as a new bedtime ritual. Inhaling the scent of lavender can help reduce stress and promote a healthy night’s sleep.
4. Proper Bedding – You all know the feeling of fresh sheets out of the dryer, right? Why not get yourself some fresh sheets out of the package! Come down to one of our Mattress Superstores and pick out some new bedding so you can sleep in luxury. Sheets can make a huge difference in the way you sleep and comfortability is key. Mattress Superstore has the quality and affordable bedding, sheets, duvets, and full sets for a perfect night’s rest!
5. Meditation – As you’ve heard everyone say – meditation and mindfulness can really help you center yourself and it scientifically can! There’s a couple of ways that you can practice meditation and mindfulness at home! You can start by keeping a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal helps you keep track of the things you’re grateful for. At the end of each day you write down 3 good things that happened, 3 things you’re wishful for tomorrow, and 3 things you’re grateful for. Meditation can be as simple as putting your feet on the floor and inhaling deeply until your muscles get less tense.
6. Exercise – Not only does exercising help for a healthy body but it also helps for a healthy mind and healthy sleeping habits. Try working out in the morning by going for a light run or walk. If you prefer to workout at night try getting in some exercise two to three hours before you’re ready to wind down. You’ll notice a difference in relaxation and how sleepy you are.
7. Get A New Bed – If you’re having trouble sleeping every night then your current mattress might be the issue. Try buying one of our top of the line and affordable mattresses.
