Why Memory Foam Mattresses Become Important as we Age
There are so many things that we start to experience as we grow older. You become more careful with your diet, you exercise more (and better), you may even start meditating. It’s come to light that buying foam mattresses is one of the best decisions we can make. It’s not just that Nectar mattresses use the best materials, they maximize your sleep time, which becomes increasingly hard to come by as we age.
A new study shows that the majority of women over forty do not get the required amount of sleep. And with insomnia linked to diseases such as alzheimer’s and hypertension, it’s a no brainer. Grab our Nectar foam mattresses to make sure that you’re getting the maximum amount of shut-eye you can, especially as you get older.
Why do We Sleep Less?
There are a number of reasons why we sleep less as we age. The first being that our hormones start to get a bit out of whack past the age of forty. Those hormones can have a secondary effect on our sleep schedules. They wake us at odd hours and preventing easy sleep on our foam mattresses. Much of our lack of sleep is learned behavior. For whatever reason it gets worse as we age. Many sleep scientists believe we can change this pattern if we simply adopt good habits.
“Poor sleep during the menopausal transition is due to a combination of biological, psychological and social factors. Vasomotor and hormonal fluctuations, increased stress, greater caregiving burden, and mood disturbance can all lead to disrupted sleep during this period,” says Natalie Dautovich, psychologist at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Vasomotor symptoms include hot flashes and night sweats.
What Can Foam Mattresses Do?
Foam mattresses, like Nectar, work by layering different types of memory foam to give you the best possible chance at a good night’s sleep. Our foam mattresses also have tencel cooling covers. This promotes air circulation, heat wicking (for a cooler sleep), and is bedbug resistant. Those can take care of some of the secondary factors that begin to bother us as we age, turning sleep into the restful activity that it was in our youths. Remember that sleep health is so important to our general health. These foam mattresses can have long lasting benefits that will cut down on long term healthcare costs, and improve quality of life.
