Your body regenerates while you sleep forming new cells and repairing damage, which means you literally need good sleep to look good. Establishing a consistent bedtime ritual can go a long way toward helping you wake refreshed. Additionally, the right memory foam pillow and mattress can support your body for a restful sleep.
A memory foam pillow made with Hevea sap from organic rubber trees and mixed with essential oils can supply the restful support your head, neck, and back need. Pillows in several styles, including whole body, are designed for individual needs. They are often recommended by chiropractors because they’re ergonomically created to suit different body types.
Pregnancy and post-pregnancy
Sound sleep is vital for expectant mothers. It is often difficult for a mother-to-be to find a comfortable sleeping position, especially during in the last trimester of pregnancy. A body pillow or pillow for side sleepers may help at any time but can be particularly helpful during pregnancy.
The new mother who wants to nap while her baby is sleeping needs to fall asleep instantly and wake up refreshed. Even a short nap can supply the energy needed to take care of a child, and finish the tasks of the day. The right natural foam pillow can help by providing adequate support and a good body position for restful sleep.
Rest is vital to good health, and as such people of all ages need good quality sleep. How you look and act when you are awake often depends on how well you sleep – all the coffee in the world can’t counteract the damage of missing a good night’s sleep for some.
Both your emotional and physical health are linked to your sleep habits. There are scores of examples of how this relationship works, including:
- Tired people are more likely to have accidents at home, at work, or while driving.
- Lack of sleep often results in difficult behavior in people, especially children.
- Problem-solving and making decisions are often difficult for tired people.
- Sleep deficiency leads to other problems including heart conditions, muscle spasms, overeating, and diabetes.
- Vitamin-rich food is digested slowly while you sleep, providing fuel and sustenance for your body
- Athletes need sound sleep to rebuild muscle and other tissue.
- Sound sleep improves brain function.
- Your brain actually prepares itself for the next day by turning off your conscious mind while producing new cells.
- Sleep improves learning and stimulates creativity.
- Your children need good sleep to grow strong and do well in a learning environment.
Sound sleep is very important for good physical and mental growth in adolescents. The teen staying up all night to play computer games will likely have trouble in school. This can lead to depression, anxiety, obesity, and other problems. Parents must learn to encourage good sleep habits and discourage the constant use of computers and mobile devices.
Studies continue on the constant exposure to social media and its influence on sleep. Teenagers in earlier generations spent time on the family telephone gossiping with their friends – it was easy for parents to say “enough” late at night. Today’s teens are busy tweeting, chatting, or posting messages on social media through mobile devices well into the early morning hours. This can promote anxiety and make sleep more difficult.
The most frequent social media users demonstrated more sleep problems than less frequent users. Parents need to limit mobile device use and encourage young people to get eight hours of sleep. Recharging batteries during the night in a different area of the home can move these devices out of the bedroom so you can actually get a good night’s sleep.
A good memory foam pillow, paired with a comfortable mattress, and seasonally appropriate bedding will help people of all ages fall asleep faster and wake refreshed. Tired people will find it easy to sleep and not toss and turn in restlessness with the support that a good pillow and comfortable bedding can provide.
Sleeping too hot can also contribute to restlessness. A copper infused memory foam mattress will help you sleep cooler and more comfortable so you can get a good night’s sleep.
