The Importance of Getting the Sleep Your Body Needs

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do for the health of your body and your mind. There has recently been a lot of focus in the medical community about why sleep is so important, also about what happens to your body when you don’t get enough sleep.

To understand a bit more about why a high-quality bed, such as the Craftmatic® Adjustable Bed, is such a wise investment, here are just a few benefits of getting your recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night:

  1. You’ll find that there are some incredible safety benefits during your waking hours when you make sleep a priority. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people who receive less than seven hours of sleep per night are more likely to fall asleep during the day at least once every month, compared to people who receive at least seven hours of sleep per night. Fatigue is a common reason car accidents occur.

 

  1. Receiving more sleep is also beneficial for emotional and mental health, too. The NHLBI states that sleep deficiency is connected to poor decision making, poor concentration, and an increased likelihood of engaging in risky behaviors. When you don’t get enough sleep at night, your brain isn’t quite “on top of its game,” so to speak. You’ll have a harder time retaining information, feeling motivated to work, and even coping with change in your environment.

Sleep should be considered an investment and it should always be prioritized. So many people just do not get as much sleep as they need, and this can have a very tangible effect on their overall quality of life. Giving yourself enough time to sleep is important, but it’s just as important to make sure that your bed, mattress, and pillow are all optimized for your comfort. With so many styles of adjustable beds and adjustable bed mattresses available, it isn’t hard to find the perfect bed for your body.

Sleeping in an upright position may reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
