We all know that having a comfortable mattress is one a key to a good nights sleep, but how important is the right mattress? After years of curating our expert opinion (owner Brandy Alvis has been in the eco-friendly mattress business for over 10 years) on why sleeping on a quality and all natural mattress we have gathered out top three reasons for the importance of the right mattress.
1. One Third of Your Life Spent Sleeping
You spend a third of your life sleeping, this means that over 30% of your life is spent between NREM and REM sleep (for more information about sleep patterns visit How Sleep Works by the National Sleep Foundation), in these modes of sleep your body shuts down into a relaxed and immobile state. Your muscles and brain are restored and your body is being prepared to support daytime activities. If you are not sleeping on a well made and restorative mattress you are messing with your sleep (keep in mind sleep takes up a huge chunk of your life) and therefore messing with your overall life performance.
2. Restoring Time
As seen in the above information sleep is a time to restore your body. Out of all the places and times in your life, sleep is the one area where your body and mind are not distracted or stressed. If you don’t have the right mattress you are disturbing that suspended time of restoration and are causing more pain and stress on your body. This time also needs to be spent in a toxic free environment, if you are sleeping on a mattress that is full of toxic chemicals your body is unable to fully rest and relax. Sleeping on an all quality, all-natural mattress can ensure a toxic free night's sleep with support for your body and mind.
3. You Deserve It
The last, yet most important, point is simply that you deserve it! Your body takes care of you throughout your entire day and your life, it deserves to rest and be restored to its the fullest potential. As woman (our main demographic) you are caretakers, of others and yourself, this is a hard and straining job and one that takes a toll on your well being. The only way to fully restore your body is to treat it well with a toxic free and natural mattress. This is needed to retain your health and overall wellness. When you take time to find the right mattress and care for yourself the more you are able to offer the world.
As stated by our founder Brandy Alvis, “Sleep well, be well."
