In this day and age, our lives are set to full throttle, we sleep 90 minutes less than we did 100 years ago, we are accessible24/7 via email, fax, mobile, text, land line, BBM, Messenger, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, video conferencing… and the list goes on. Gone are the days when you can leave work at work and technology doesn’t rule our lives. I bet it seems funny and very normal, however, have you ever stopped to ask your body how it feels about the pace we have entered into?
When was the last time you thought of sleep as a priority? How often do you trade off sleep to get one last project finished or even made the statement, ‘I will catch up on sleep tomorrow or over the weekend’? Sleep is a necessity, not a luxury and if you want to sleep better and live longer, now is the time to look at reprioritising sleep back into its rightful place as a number one priority next to eating and rehydrating.
We all should understand how much sleep our body needs, what our ideal bedroom environment is and how ‘comfort’ and ‘support’ are not just words thrown around by marketing campaigns describing a mattress or pillow - the right comfort and the right support impacts on our bodies while we sleep, if we don’t take the time to fully understand the mattress and pillow we are buying, our bodies and our sleep are the ones that suffer.
A simple fact, a 33 year old male or female has spent on average 11 years in bed – yes 11 years, that is eight (8) hours every night. For such an important area of our lives, we put very little thought into our mattress and pillow – it is the least seen piece of furniture in our home but the most used.
Poor sleep affects our productivity, mood, health, focus and general wellbeing and should not be left to chance when we start considering what we are sleeping on.
