Fancy A Change? You Should Buy A New Mattress Every Eight Years

They say a change is as good as a rest and many believe changing your mattress can help you get a better rest. Most mattresses, even the firmest, finest quality items, commonly last between five years to a decade. It is generally recommended you buy a new mattress every eight years. If you are having trouble sleeping, wake up tired or suffer aches and pains in the morning, it may be time to replace your mattress.

Cheaper Mattresses Found to be Just as Good Quality as Expensive Ones

There are many different reasons why you may choose to change your mattress. The simple fact is it may be old and worn out and may be due to an upgrade. That is why it is advised you routinely give your mattress a once-over, checking for signs of ageing and wear and tear. Ranging from sagging, lumps and indentations, which could prove uncomfortable and affect your sleep. Having your rest disrupted can result in emotional or psychological problems like anxiety and depression. An out of shape mattress may lose its support and could possibly lead to a variety of physical complaints. From stiffness and sore muscles to numbness, neck and back pain, as well as trapped nerves.

What’s more, if you hold on to a mattress for too long a time, it could begin to collect unwelcome matter. These include a build-up of dead skin cells, dust mites, pollen and even body fluid residue among others. It is thought the stockpile of unwanted body matter can increase the weight of your mattress by almost 100%. You may launder your mattress and linens but there is a chance it may still contain particles which can be problematic for those who may suffer from allergies.

If you are looking for the most consistently comfortable sleep, you should buy a new mattress every eight years. When seeking out a suitable replacement you could take your pick of the fabulous selection on sale from Beds Glasgow.

How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep in the Wintertime

In wintertime, when the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer, many people find it hard to get a good nights sleep in the wintertime.

The NHS recommends an average adult should have in the area of seven to nine hours sleep each night. However various factors, such as stress, depression, loud noises and even the temperature of the room may disrupt your sleeping pattern. If you suffer from winter cold or flu symptoms it could actually keep you awake. In fact, it has been reported sleep disorders are more common at this time of year when the temperature drops. There are steps you can take though to curtail the signs of insomnia in wintertime and wake up refreshed in the morning.

Stay Cool And Sleep In Hot Weather

Among the various reasons why people may find it more difficult to get to sleep at this time of year may have a meteorological basis, as well as the effects changes in the weather may have on a person’s routine and their wellbeing. It is a well-known fact we require sunlight to produce the chemical in the body called melatonin, which controls how well we sleep and how long. So, in the wintertime, when it gets dark early and people tend to stay indoors more, we don’t get exposed to as much sunlight, you can experience a dip in the production of melatonin which can affect your sleep. It is therefore advised you take in as much natural light as you can while the sun is up. Try not to spend all your time indoors and go outside during the daytime. Experts also recommend you open your blinds or curtains as soon as you wake up in the morning and dim your lights at night-time to expedite the production of melatonin before turning in.

Another important aspect of having uninterrupted sleep in the winter is the temperature. It sees an obvious rise in the use of artificial heaters to hold back the cold, although these heaters create warm, dry air which can leave you feeling dehydrated. What’s more, if you leave the heating on at night you could wake up with a thirst, experience dry mouth and have trouble falling back to sleep. If you are looking for a good night’s rest, it is advised you try and maintain a cool temperature between 16 to 18 degrees Celsius, You should shut off the heating when you go to bed and cover yourself in bed linens, blankets or duvets made from cotton or wool which are ideal for regulating the temperature of the human body, so you don’t get too warm at night and have problems sleeping.

However, for many, the key to a brilliant night’s sleep in the perfect bed or mattress and we have a magnificent selection available at Beds Glasgow. Take a look around our huge superstore just outside the centre of Glasgow or check us out online, where you are certain to find the bed product of your dreams. Say goodbye to the winter blues for a restful sleep this Christmas with Beds Glasgow.

How Being Sleep Deprived Can Affect Your Health

It may come as no surprise but going without sleep can have an adverse effect on your health and well-being. You are probably aware that not getting enough rest can make you feel run down and exhausted. It can reduce your energy levels and lead to stress and irritability, which is to be expected. However, being sleep deprived can also have unforeseen consequences you may not know were linked to insomnia.  It can be the source of various ailments, which could impact your life.

For instance, many don’t realise lack of sleep can affect your appetite. Have you ever wondered why you may feel peckish and in the mood for snacking in the middle of the night? Well, studies say sleep deprivation increases traces of the molecule 2-AG in the human body which promotes a person’s appetite. It can feel like the more tired you are the hungrier you become, so is little wonder people enjoy a midnight feast from time to time.

Studies have shown you can also show the signs of sleep deprivation on the outside. Experts believe not getting enough rest can take a toll on your skin. It can increase the symptoms of ageing and influence your skin health. What’s more, skin repair can be harder for people who do not sleep well. It could diminish catabolism, a purification process assisting in skin repair which only takes place at night. So, if you don’t get a good night’s sleep it could hurt its progression, giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “getting your beauty sleep”.

It may sound fundamental, but if you are having trouble sleeping it could stop your brain from getting the rest it needs. Experts have learned that, while we sleep, our brains go through a sort of detoxification process, where it almost has a clean out.

Scientists have discovered that while we nap our brains cells decrease by over half their size. This causes a de-cluttering, allowing the human body to get rid of damaging substances such as beta-amyloid, mentioned in connection with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. It is believed the more you sleep the more your brain can detox and the less you sleep the more you increase the chances of beta-amyloid forming on the brain.
These are some of the ways sleep deprivation can affect a person’s health. If you are having trouble sleeping, you could consider changing your bed and mattress. There is a wide range of comfortable, luxury beds for sale at our large showroom near Glasgow. If you would like to know more about our wonderful stock come to Beds Glasgow. We won’t rest until you have a perfect night’s sleep.
