Sleep Soundly with Slumberland - 5 ways your mattress can improve your health

As Bed Retailer of the Year (2 years running) we know a thing or two about getting a good night’s sleep.

That’s why we’re thrilled to be partnering with Slumberland, whose high quality mattresses are guaranteed to help you sleep well.

European Indoor Champion and Olympic 2016 hopeful, Heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson supports Slumberland’s Healthy Sleep Campaign.

“The importance of sleep – to me it’s vital. My coach has a strong mentality on getting the right recovery. He says it’s important to have rest days to make sure my body recoups properly and I’m ready to train the next day. I always try to get the most sleep I possibly can, I aim for 10 hours.” – Katarina Johnson-Thompson

Here are five ways the right mattress can improve your health.

1. Get the right support

We’ve all spent at least one terrible night on an uncomfortable mattress. Not only does it stop you sleeping well, you can also feel it the next day. Choosing a mattress with the right support can make a world of difference to your health and wellbeing. The Affinity™ Core Pocket Springs Slumberland use adapt to your body and distribute your weight evenly, making sure you’re supported and comfortable all night long.

2. Stay cool

Getting too warm in bed increases your blood pressure, which can keep you awake. A good mattress circulates the air to keep you cool while you sleep. The open cell structure of Affinity™ Foam enhances circulation and improves the breath-ability of the mattress, helping you stay cool and comfortable.

3. Keep your bed hygienic

Effective air circulation doesn’t just keep you cool; it also keeps your bed hygienic. A standard mattress will contain millions of mites after just a few months. Slumberland’s ActiPro® uses probiotic bacteria to combat these bad bacteria, keeping your sleeping environment hygienic and preventing allergies from flaring up.

4. Reduce your stress levels

A good night’s sleep can drastically reduce your stress levels. When your body is sleep-deficient it goes into stress mode, which can increase your blood pressure. Finding a mattress that keeps you cool and comfortable will help you sleep better, and feel stress free.

The colours in your bedroom can also affect your mood. Our range of Slumberland beds come in a variety of stunning colours, so you can pick the style that suits you.

5. Stay focused

When you sleep, a process called memory consolidation takes place. Getting more sleep helps you process and retain things better. A good night’s sleep will also help you feel more energised and alert the next day.

If you think you’re ready for a better night’s sleep, take a look at our fabulous Slumberland range.
