Does your busy schedule keep you from getting the rest you need? Between work, school, family, and hobbies, setting aside eight hours of rest a day might seem impossible. Like many people, you probably think the idea of “too much sleep” sounds nice. While sleeping in every day sounds like heaven to the sleep-deprived, research suggests that it’s far from healthy.
The “ideal” amount of sleep is typically defined as of 7-9 hours of rest per night. Sleeping significantly less or more can increase the risk of health problems. A CDC study found that participants who slept excessively suffered a greater risk of various medical problems, including:
- Cardiovascular problems, including coronary heart disease and high blood pressure. Sleeping “too much” may double these risks.
- Mental Distress was reported more frequently by short and long sleepers.
If you feel the need to sleep ten hours or more, perhaps you don’t feel rested enough with a standard amount of sleep. Many factors can contribute to poor quality sleep, but have you considered the possibility that your mattress is the culprit? If your mattress retains heat or the coils are worn out, you won’t relax and sleep as deeply. Beautyrest Black mattresses feature cooling memory foam technology and dual-action coils that provide essential support for your back and spine. With a new, improved mattress, it’s easier to find the comfortable rest you deserve!
