    WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN YOUR SLEEP THIS WINTER

    WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN YOUR SLEEP THIS WINTER

    As one of the third pillars of health, alongside nutrition and exercise, investing in your sleep is one of the key ways to enhance your wellbeing. Discover some of the reasons why it’s especially important to invest in your sleep during the cooler months of Winter.

    ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING 

    The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) found that many people who sleep fewer than 7 hours each night often experience deficiencies in magnesium, vitamin D, calcium, niacin and dietary fibre. This research indicated that when we have a disrupted sleep it can impact our ability to absorb vital nutrients from our food to achieve optimal health.

    ENJOY A COMFORTABLE SLEEP 

    As the temperatures get cooler in the Winter months it can be tempting to layer up to get cosy but research by the Sleep Foundation has found that the best temperature for a quality sleep is actually 18.3C, which is cooler than many would expect. That’s why our Australian Made Certified Organic Latex Mattress features a 100% Australian Wool Quilted Cover and Underlay that offers extra comfort and allows for airflow to circulate while regulating the temperature while you sleep.

    CREATE AN ALLERGY-FREE ZONE 

    As we keep the windows and doors closed during the Winter months to keep the elements out, you will often find that the build-up of humid air can lead to an increase in damp conditions which is prime time for mould and other bacteria to form. 

    So that you can create an allergy-free zone in your bedroom for a healthy and safe sleep we have chosen 100% Certified Organic Napure Latex for our mattresses which is naturally flame retardant, dust mite resistant, non-allergenic, antibacterial and antifungal. We also use HealthGuard® treatment to discourage breeding of dust mites and bed bugs. As well as Adaptive fabric treatment to accelerate the evaporation of moisture so that you can enjoy a comfortable night sleep.

    BOOST YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING 

    A healthy night sleep plays a major role in your cognitive functions, including the ways that you process and retain memories and new information. By investing in your sleep you will be able to gain the benefits of a boost to your immune function, autonomic activities, focus and cognition.
