Interesting Facts About Your Sleep & Your Mattress

Is sleep important to you? I remember when I was younger, I could literally stay awake for days without feeling tired. I remained active even if I had only one or two hours of sleep. However, now I understand that no matter how old we are, we really need to always make sure that we get enough rest to recharge our bodies and our minds. I personally try to get at least six to eight hours of sleep each night. The operative word here is try.

The average person can last without food for two weeks, but we can only live for ten days without sleep. And, obviously our productivity will suffer at work on the days when we haven’t gotten enough sleep the night before. It is truly hard to think and concentrate when we haven’t gotten the sleep that we need. There are so many factors that cause us to lose sleep or wake up in the night. It might be our busy schedule, the demands of our work, or even simply stress. Another factor we should also consider is the mattress that we sleep on.

When we moved to our new house about three years ago, my sister bought a good mattress for us. We immediately noticed that we were not only getting better sleep, but we were also waking up with a lot less aches and pains. When I moved to the States a few months ago, that was my first consideration. I found a very interesting infographic that details the pros and cons of the different mattresses available. Check it out and see which is best for you. I can guarantee you that you will definitely feel a difference when you start getting the appropriate amount of sleep each night.

    I’d like to try sleeping on the 1.6M floating bed.
    Sounds really cool!
