Today we talked on TV5 about....

How sleep can be benifical to my health...I mean, we all know it is...but really? What do I need to do or have to make it the best? 


The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret: we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our mind to stay in it late.


1. Sleep is crucial for health

Many people believe food to be the most crucial factor in our well-being and health, but humans can live 2 weeks without food and only 10 days without sleep. Sleep is proven to be a bit more demanding of our bodies. This means that a comfortable mattress that allows you to get a good night sleep is very important!


2. Babies take effort…even at night!

The average new parent looses nearly 44 days – or 1,056 hours of sleep during the first year of a child’s life. Therefore, the sleep that new parents due get must be quality sleep. Tossing and turning due to aches and pains or waking due to partner movement can’t keep mommy or daddy up once they finally get to sleep! In addition, according to doctors, men need an hour LESS sleep a night than women…so Daddy, you get an extra shift!


3.Remembering Dreams

Only about 12% of people dream in black and white and only see faces in their dreams that they have seen before. Five minutes after waking up, most people can only remember 50% of their dream. Within 10 minutes, 90% of them are forgotten.


feel like you are falling in your sleep

4. Stressed sleepers feel the falling sensation

Have you ever felt that you are falling in a dream or had your legs suddenly shake? This feeling is actually a very common sensation that’s experienced by sleepers who find themselves stressed or sleep deprived. It is the results from a discordance between the brain and the body. Your brain enters into sleep cycles aggressively and your body has to work to keep up, resulting in the sharp jerking sensation.


5. Sleep deprivation

An all niter can actually reduce your capacity for remembering new facts by 40%. Cram sessions don’t really work college students! After 17 nights of partial sleep deprivation, the body reacts with impaired judgment, similar to being intoxicated with a blood alcohol-level of .05 percent.


Sleep is important both physically and mentally!

You+ plus a quality mattress = a good night sleep

Get on top of a new mattress and get down to the bottom of making the right purchase…Serta
