One late dinner party will certainly make the next day of work much harder to cope with. That is because one night of bad sleep can affect our normal cognitive function, memory, and emotional state. When you compound a hundred nights of inadequate sleep the effects multiply and grow in severity. Uncomfortable mattresses play a role in people’s sleeping habits and consequently on their health. At Market Warehouse Furniture we understand the severity of bad sleep and the difference a good quality mattress can make in leading a healthy and productive life.
Studies have shown that a lack of sleep can have serious implications to your emotional health. Evidence suggests that people with long term insomnia have ten times greater risk of developing depression. It can also increase stress and agitation, making people groggy, irritable, and forgetful. With sleep deprivation stretched over a long period of time people can experience serious emotional consequences like suicidal thoughts and impulsive behavior**.
The immune system is also highly compromised with lack of sleep. As your body is resting it produces infection fighting chemicals and uses them to combat foreign and unwanted invaders. Without sleep your body is not as resistant as it could be to common ills like colds and minor infections. So years of bad quality mattresses can actually be making you sick!**
Weight and Energy
Not getting enough sleep will have effects on your digestive system and can cause problems with obesity and weight gain. Insomnia affects hormones that help tell your body when its full. It can also send your appetite out of whack and cause you to eat more. When people find themselves tossing and turning at night, they don’t often think of their mattresses as the culprit. However, many times the discomfort produced by the mattress will have a direct impact on a person’s ability to fall into deep sleep.**
Memory and The Brain
Studies suggest that sleep actually helps seal recent information, thus enhancing learning. Disturbances in sleep patterns and prolonged insomnia can also have dire effects in long term brain health. There have been links between the development of degenerative cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia to chronic sleep deprivation. Firm and comfortable mattresses can play a role in how fast and how deeply you fall asleep.
