Sleep Easy:
Everything You Need to Know About the Importance of Sleep
& A Good Mattress

A good night’s rest is important — everyone knows that, right? But did you know poor sleeping habits can affect your mental and physical health? It’s true, your quality of sleep has a direct impact on every part of your life. Just as it needs food, water and oxygen to function properly, your body requires quality sleep. Obvious signs of sleep deprivation include excessive sleepiness, yawning, irritability and daytime fatigue. When you’re ready to take your sleep seriously, start by evaluating your current mattress. If it’s more than eight years old, sags or shows signs of wear — it’s time to begin shopping for a new sleep set.


Shop Smart

Mattress shopping doesn’t have to be nerve-racking. Make it fun by bringing your sleep partner and owning the process. Wear loose clothing, take your time, and try each mattress long enough to get a feel for the firmness of the model. Relax and recline just like you would at home, you can even bring your own pillow if you like.

Power Down

According to the National Sleep Foundation, the presence of electronic devices such as laptops and cell phones can make it harder to fall asleep. The glowing blue light from device screens suppresses your body’s production of melatonin, an important hormone that promotes sleep. To calm your mind and make it easier to drift off, avoid using your computer or checking your phone in bed.

Memory Tip

If it seems your memory is worse after sleeping poorly, you’re right. A key process taking place during sleep is the formation of neurons. These pathways between nerve cells in your brain help you remember new information you’ve learned, and are negatively impacted by sleep deprivation.

The top side effects of sleep talking are:

Trouble with thinking and concentration. Focus, creativity, and problem-solving skills suffer when you don’t get enough rest.

Accidents. Daytime drowsiness can increase your risk of car accidents and other types of injuries.

Mood changes. Lack of sleep can make you moody, emotional and quicktempered. Chronic sleep depression can lead to anxiety and depression.

Weakened immunity. Getting too little sleep weakens your immune system and leaves you more susceptible to viruses like the common cold and flu.

High blood pressure. Your risk for high blood pressure increases if you’re getting less than five hours of quality sleep each night.

Increased risk of heart disease. Sleep deprivation may lead to increased blood pressure and higher levels of inflammation, both of which play a role in heart disease.

Increased risk of diabetes. Poor sleep can affect your body’s release of insulin, increasing your risk for Type 2 diabetes.

Weight gain. When you’re sleep deprived, the chemical balance that signals your brain when you feel hungry or full is off—making it more likely you’ll overindulge.

Poor balance. Lack of sleep can affect your balance and coordination, resulting in more falls and injuries.


Getting a good night's sleep is important. Give yourself the best odds possible and make sure you set yourself up for sleeping success. Shop for a new mattress if your current one isn't supporting you and power down electronics. Better sleep means a better you.
