Sleep is as important as food and air. Quantity and quality are both very important. Most adults need between 7.5 to 8.5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. If you find yourself pressing the snooze button on the alarm in the morning you are not getting enough sleep.
In fact, when people get less than that each night, their risk for developing diseases begins to increase.
However, good sleep is harder to get as we age because of health conditions, medications and other reasons. Protecting your sleep as you age will give you more energy and better health.
While we know that sleep makes us feel refreshed, there are many health and other benefits to a good night’s sleep. These include improving heart health, improving your memory and maybe even preventing cancer. Other benefits include improving your skin and helping you concentrate
Sleep is a complicated process consisting of five stages. These stages include falling asleep (stage 1), brain slow-down (stage 2), deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) and rapid eye movement (REM). In each stage, the brain and body act differently. During the night, we cycle through all these stages approximately every 100 minutes.
Creating a sleeping sanctuary can contribute to healthier and better quality sleep. One way to do this is removing toxins from your sleep environment and replacing them with cleaner natural items. This includes, but is not limited to; a chemical free latex mattress, natural organic duvets, and a natural organic pillow.
Here at Dormio we specialize in chemical free, natural and organic mattresses, pillows and bedding.
