Sealy Beds have discovered how we can become a 'Deeper Sleeper'
Sealy knows that people are becoming more and more aware of the importance of getting a good night’s sleep and many now recognise that although a lot of this is about having a good bed to sleep on, it’s also about the actual quality of sleep achieved. Helping the nation become deeper sleepers is a key objective for Sealy and if you have the right bed, this is a major component to enjoying deeper sleep, so your body is much healthier and, more importantly, happier.
Why We Need to be Deeper Sleepers
We all lead such busy lives these days that getting a good night’s sleep tends to slip down the agenda but just as exercise and nutrition are essential for good health, so is sleep. The quality of our sleep directly affects the quality of our daily lives, including mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, energy, and even our weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort!
When we sleep our body and brain don’t actually shut off. We have light sleep phases and deeper ones. While we sleep in the deeper phases, our brain stays busy, overseeing an internal maintenance schedule that keeps us running in top condition. This helps the body repair itself and build energy for the day ahead - our muscles and tissues recover, our immune system gets a boost and all the information we have absorbed during the day gets consolidated in our memory. Without enough hours of this type of restorative sleep, we won’t function, work, learn, create, and communicate at an effective level.
You will know if you are in deeper sleep as, if you are woken while in this phase, you will feel disoriented for a few minutes. So, to help you get into these important deeper sleeping phases, you need to ensure your bed is doing what it should.
