Use a Sports Therapy mattress to feel recharged after sleeping

exerciseIf you are an active person, having a good sleep pattern is essential if you are to feel recharged after sleep.  A healthy lifestyle relies upon a mix of being active and having a good sleep pattern. Did you know that sleep plays an important part in ensuring that not only does your brain recharge, but the cells in your body repair themselves as important hormones are released into your body.

Did you know that there are two basic states of sleep; rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep.  NREM sleep consists of 4 stages:

  • Stage 1: The eyes are closed but a person can be easily awakened. Stage 1 last for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Stage 2: This is a period of light sleep where there are periods of muscle tone mixed with periods of muscle relaxation. It is here that the body prepares to enter deep sleep and the heart rate slows and the body temperature drops.
  • Stages 3 and 4: This is when your body is in “deep sleep” and you are likely to feel disoriented if you are woken during these stages.

During the stages 3 and 4 of NREM sleep the body repairs and regenerates tissues, builds bone and muscle, and appears to strengthen the immune system.  If your body does not get a quality night’s sleep then the muscles and tissues will not have the chance to recover and rebuild.

FD  Bed’s Sports Therapy mattresses have been designed for those with an active lifestyle, and this includes everyone from professionals to an amateur sports people.  At the centre of each of the mattresses is a multi-zone foam unit with individual castellated comfort cells which create air channels. These enhance ventilation and airflow while cooling the mattress. This unique combination promotes therapeutic sleep by alleviating pressure points and easing aches and pains.
