Sleep is as necessary as a healthy diet, exercise, and mental clarity for a wholesome meaningful life. Our culture embraces the hustle and bustle of constant work grinding, commitments, and a million other responsibilities that we often overlook how necessary it is to relax, unwind, and get some good shut eye. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute reports that “Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.”
We need to give the same attention to detail as when we read nutrition labels on our food to when we make important bedding choices. Most people will unknowingly purchase a mattress or sheets just based off of the appearance that has been marketed to them. These choices leave consumers sleeping on bedding and mattresses that often contain harmful chemicals and toxins. We here at Pom Pom at Home only use quality natural linens and cottons throughout our lines.
Once we have realized the importance of sleep on our daily routines we should really know exactly what happens when we are sleeping. If you haven’t heard that the well-rested “deep sleep” is medically referred to as REM sleep. And the National Sleep Foundation tells us that sleep stages actually repeat themselves every 90 minutes.
First, there’s a non-rapid eye movement NREM phase which consists of four stages: Falling asleep, disengaging from surroundings, and deep sleep where you release hormones and regain your energy.
Once NREM has been achieved, REM follows are also known the rapid eye movement stage and this will repeat throughout the night.
During REM, the brain becomes able to dream while the body is dormant.
REM is vital to your health because energy is supplying the brain and body, supporting performance in the daytime.
Look at REM as rejuvenating your brain’s daily workload.
Pom Pom at Home believes that in order to have clarity of mind and the energy to take on the demands of our modern world, it is our purpose as a company and our mantra to offer natural fibers in our products to give our customers a healthy no gimmicks alternative to bedding at a fair price.
Sleep Well! :)
