What is Sleep Health?
In a nutshell sleep health is simply defined as sleep and how it affects one’s overall health and wellness. Good sleep health not only means sleeping enough each night, but also having a high quality of sleep.
Quick sleep health facts:
- People sleep on average seven to nine hours a day.
- Most people fall asleep within 15-20 minutes of lying down to sleep.
- Sleep should be continuous and not lying awake when you wish to be sleeping
- After sleep you should wake up feeling refreshed.
- After a good sleep it’s easier to be productive throughout the day.
- Even a quick nap can help improve alertness and productivity
Why is Sleep Health so Important?
Getting enough quality sleep not only helps protect your mental health but it can impact your physical health and overall quality of life. Sleep wellness plays a pivotal role in your health. Poor sleep can cause numerous issues like: obesity, poor immune function, and depression. While good sleep can help with a range things like: learning, productivity, and energy levels. In today’s fast-paced, always-connected, and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important than ever. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has called inefficient sleep a public health epidemic, and has a page dedicated to sleep health.

What Affects Our Sleep?
Getting a good night’s rest, however, is sometimes easier said than done. We’ve all heard that humans on average need around 8 hours of sleep per night, but did you know that the quality of your sleep is just as important? Internal factors like mood, stress levels, what we ate, or medical conditions affect the quality of our sleep. While external environmental factors like noise, light, and the quality of our bedding play an equally important role. In fact even the color of our bedroom and sheets can have an effect on how well we sleep.
While many people consider noise and lighting levels or mental and physical factors to have a better nights sleep. Most people don’t think about how the quality and materials of their bed linens have a direct correlation to the quality of their sleep.
Did you know people actually sleep better when they’re cooler? Having temperature regulating sheets can help us sleep deeper and without interruption. As we disperse heat at night it’s important to choose sheets that don’t trap heat or cause us to sweat. Even something like sleeping naked can help regulating body temperature.
People suffering from allergies can have a better nights sleep by using hypoallergenic sheets.Less particles and dust allow for us to breathe easier. This not only allows us to fall asleep easier, but also to breathe better while we sleep. Hypoallergenic sheets are all also great for people with sensitive skin.
Antibacterial sheets are cleaner and get soiled less. This means sheets smell better longer and are more comfortable for us to sleep in. This is important for people who have acne, as less bacteria can lead to less breakouts.
