A research, recently reported in the sleep journal, offers unambiguous proof of the causal link between limited sleep time (less than 6 hours sleep a night) and an increased risk of early death.

The study also reports that continuous prolonged sleep (over 9 hours a night) may be a source of concern. Although, unlike short sleep, long sleeping in itself does not raise the likelihood of mortality, it may be a major predictor of a severe and possibly lethal underlying disease.

Today’s society has seen a progressive reduction in the overall number of people taking sleep, and this trend is more prevalent in full-time workers, indicating it may be due to social demands for longer working hours and more shift work. On the other side, the worsening in our health status always goes hand in hand with an expansion of our sleep time

Regularly spending 6 to 8 hours a night may be health-optimal. The length of sleep can be regarded as an external risk factor or risk predictor affected by the climate and likely prone to improvement by awareness and therapy as well as public health interventions aimed at positively changing the physical and workplace environment.

Are you thinking about the safety consequences the mattress is having? We’ll discuss 10 irritating – and possibly harmful – health side effects to sleeping on a poor mattress in this article.

No shock, however low-quality sleep would typically leave you feeling exhausted and somnolent. When the pillow stops you from falling asleep, the alertness may be impaired for the entire day.

While feeling a little drowsy in the afternoon and particularly late in the evening is common, early or serious drowsiness isn’t usual. When you can’t comfortably fall asleep on your couch, it might make you feel unnaturally exhausted throughout the day.

Affects your back? Although a wide range of different factors can induce back discomfort, from exercise accidents to hip issues, a low-quality mattress will also require you to sleep in an uncomfortable posture that bends and strains the spine.

When you have to move sideways to get relaxed in your home, you could end up hurting your back. A comfortable yet stable mattress that helps you to sleep peacefully on your back or side will hold the back straight and avoid accidents.

Those who don’t get enough sleep, who sometimes get up during the night, are more likely to become obese than their peers. That is because the drowsiness induced by sleep loss and lack of energy will also contributes to overeating.

When you get hungry throughout the day but have not raised your degree of exercise, you may be to blame for a low quality mattress. Within 30 minutes or fewer you will be able to fall asleep-if not, try changing your mattress or modifying your lifestyle.

The older the mattress is, the greater the probability that it may produce significant amounts of dust mites. Dust mites are a fact of any mattress but for these annoying pests, older mattresses have a especially strong probability of becoming a sanctuary.

According to data research done by mattress portal reports that continuous prolonged sleep (over 9 hours a night) may be a source of concern. Although, unlike short sleep, long sleeping in itself does not raise the likelihood of mortality, it may be a major predictor of a severe and possibly lethal underlying disease.

Dust mites may contribute to a variety of skin disorders and therapies such as eczema, asthma and sore throat. When the mattress and pillows grow older, worry about when it’s time to change them. If new, do measures to avoid the production of dust mites.

Have you ever found that, because you don’t sleep sufficiently, you are more prone to get ill? Long nights out together with friends and low-quality home sleep will break down your immune system and make your risk of becoming sicker.

A poor immune system allows you more prone to be swept up with a broad variety of infections, from fevers and the common cold. Keep yourself safe from sickness with a mattress that offers you the warmth and help you need to sleep in a better way.
