5 Benefits of a Good Night's Sleep

5 benefits of a goof night's sleep

Barretts of Woodbridge’s Bed Month Sale has begun! To announce the fantastic savings on offer on our beds, mattresses and bedroom furniture, we’re promoting the importance of a good night’s sleep.

Here are just 5 of the many benefits of a good night’s sleep!

1: Reduces Stress and Improves your Mood

If your body doesn’t get enough sleep, it will let you know by producing an increased amount of stress hormones. So if you start feeling a bit 'edgy', then perhaps you're not getting a restful enough sleep? Plus, the better you sleep, the better your ability cope with whatever the day throws at you. 


2: Helps your Heart

A consistent level of nightly sleep can help to reduce stress and damage to your cardiovascular system. This reduces your chances of having a stroke or heart condition, and that is good news!


3: Makes you Smarter

Sleep helps your brain to be sharper and more productive. A good night’s sleep won’t actually make you any smarter, but it’ll certainly feel like it has. You’ll be more focused throughout the day, making the slog of the working week much more bearable. Who couldn't do with some of that?


4: Pain Relief

If you suffer from chronic pain or minor pains from recent injuries, a good night’s sleep can actually make you hurt less. Research has discovered a proven link between lack of sleep and a lower pain threshold. 

Of course, pain can make it very difficult to sleep. There are many things that you can do to help relieve pain when you’re trying to sleep, such as trying to find the right mattress for your sleeping preferences, improving your sleeping environment or visiting your doctor for medical aid.


5: Weight Loss

Sleep can aid weight loss. The first reason that sleep can help you lose weight is psychological. If you’re feeling overtired, you’re much less likely to exercise or cook that healthy dinner you were planning to.

The other part is physical. A hormone called leptin is one of the hormones that makes you feel full. When you don’t get enough sleep, levels of leptin drop. You’ll be more likely to avoid high-calorie and fatty foods if you’ve had a good kip.

With all of that in mind, you should realise the important role that sleep plays in promoting a healthier you.
