Everything You Need To Know About Sleep Deprivation

You don’t need to know that humans spend nearly 1/3 of their lives sleeping to understand how important a little shuteye is to a functioning existence. At Nature’s Embrace – home of the best natural latex mattress in Canada – we understand better than anyone the value of a good night’s sleep. While a new organic latex mattress or organic pillow in Canada can certainly help you achieve high-quality sleep, sleep deprivation can be much more serious than that. Read on to learn a bit more about sleep deprivation from some folks who have built their lives in the sleep industry.

What is Sleep Deprivation?

Sleep deprivation can be categorized as acute sleep deprivation (the significant reduction of sleep for a few days or less), chronic sleep deprivation (inadequate amounts of quality sleep that persists for three months or more), or chronic sleep deficiency (poor sleep due to constant fragmentations and disruptions). Sleep deprivation is a serious issue, no matter the level a person is struggling with.

What are the possible causes of sleep deprivation?

There are many possible causes for the sleep deprivation that range from lifestyle to medical. Things like working too long of hours – or multiple jobs – may cut into the necessary hours a human needs for sleep. Additionally, stress or excessive partying can take away from those critical rest hours. Medical issues such as sleep apnea and anxiety can also lead to sleep deprivation over time.

How Does Sleep Deprivation Affect You?

When you don’t get enough sleep, it has a significant impact on your day-to-day life. Fatigue, irritability, and decreased ability to concentrate are just a few of the common symptoms of sleep deprivation. In the long term, things like weight gain, heart disease, and even car accidents are possible due to a lack of sleep.

Let Nature's Embrace help you sleep better.

At Nature's Embrace, we understand the importance of a good night's sleep. Sleep deprivation can have serious, long-term effects on your health and wellbeing. If you're struggling with sleep deprivation, we encourage you to come and try one of our natural latex mattresses or organic pillows. With a good night's sleep, you'll be able to take on anything life throws your way!

Regardless of the cause of sleep deprivation, the effects can have major consequences on the rest of your life including impacts on your mental and physical health, productivity, alertness, and relationships. Everyone needs to address their sleep deprivation individually, but doing things like making a sleep schedule, eliminating alcohol and caffeine in the evenings, limiting exposure to electronic devices, and avoiding mid-day naps when possible can all be very helpful. A high-quality mattress can also help.

Try a New Organic Latex Mattress

If you feel like you’ve tried everything and still can’t seem to establish a strong sleep routine that affords you the hours of rest you need, maybe it's time to upgrade to a new organic Dunlop latex mattress. Comfort plays a major role in the amount and quality of sleep you need, and older mattresses sometimes just don’t cut it. Further, the quality materials and balanced support of an organic Dunlop latex mattress simply can’t be beaten.

Whether you are suffering from sleep deprivation or are just in the market for a new latex mattress in Canada, contact the experts at Nature’s Embrace today. Nobody knows sleep better, and the lack of quality sleep is something we take seriously. We love nothing more than helping our customers find the mattress of their dreams!
