How much sleep do we really need?

We Humans need four basic things to survive – food, water, oxygen and SLEEP.

All of us need a decent amount of sleep to be able to function and remain healthy – it’s very important for our overall health and well-being.

Did you know that you actually spend up to 1/3 of your life asleep? That’s a lot of time, so it’s pretty important you make the most of it. The overall state of your sleep-health and how well you sleep remains a vital question throughout our lives.  It’s pretty common knowledge that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually make it a priority.

Our sleep quality and the amount of sleep we get in affected by so many different things, from stimulants like coffee and energy drinks to room temperature and or lighting.

Below is the National Sleep Foundations guide to who much sleep you should be getting for your age.

So sleep needs differ from age to age, lifestyle and health. To determine how much sleep you need, it’s important to consider not just your age, but also to examine what lifestyle factors affect the quality and quantity of your sleep such as diet, work schedules and stress levels.

When your bed doesn’t provide you with good support and comfort, it’s probably having a negative effect on your sleep. A lot people are unaware that their bed maybe one of the reasons they haven’t been sleeping well. Beds and mattresses especially do not last forever!

If you’re worried that you are losing out on sleep, or not sleeping as well as you once did, it could well be your bed. If you wake up with aches and pains or get a better night’s sleep elsewhere and not in your own bed it’s more than likely that a new mattress could seriously improve you quality of sleep and perhaps you quality of life.

We have literally hundreds of beds that we promise will give you a dreamy night’s sleep. For advice on which mattress we think would suit you, please feel free to select the live support option to the right of our website!
