An Old Irish Proverb says, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book”. The Futon Shop’s Spring sale this March might just be the answer to a better night's sleep. According to Center for Disease Control (CDC), adults need a daily amount of 7-9 hours of sleep. With a busy job, a parent, or stress of life can often get in the way of sleeping peacefully. A recent published report from the Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences of United States of America Journal this January 23 2013 shows a close relationship between lack of sleep and the changing of one’s genes. The report also found a close correlation between insufficient sleep and various diseases including obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive impairment.
Often when there is a lack of adequate sleep, there are signs of fogginess, confusion, sleepiness, and craving for more coffee or sugar to get a jolt of energy. Often these signs can cause poor performance at work or in school. And while these facts can be a little daunting, it can easily be remedied with a change of one’s mattress. It pays to be green when it comes to one’s health. Here are The Futon Shop simple reasons why going green in the bedroom can improve one’s health.
