Sleep is one of the most underrated activities that the human body undertakes. Good sleep is key to us being able to function correctly in every day life, let alone essential in helping us live healthier lifestyles. We find out more about how one Canadian company, Seva Mattress Warehouse is actively promoting a better night’s sleep with its luxurious mattress range, as it is rewarded for its hard work in the Canadian Made Awards 2022.

By the time we die, we will have spent roughly one-third of our lives sleeping. Sleep is such a fundamental human need but, according to a recent report published by Canadian awareness campaign ‘Sleep On It’*, more than half of Canadians report that they often don’t get as much sleep as they should be.

This means that one-third of Canadians are regularly sleeping fewer hours per night than the recommended number. Yet, sleep is a much needed and valuable ally for physical and psychological health as well as for the prevention of a plethora of health problems.

As a pillar of health, sleep does not just make us feel fresh and restored in the morning, we sleep to conserve our energy, and to refuel it daily. However, the sleeping brain actually accomplishes much more. It is known that even though the body works to conserve energy during sleep, its cells still actively regulate essential brain and metabolic activities. Many scientific studies focus on the role of sleep and several precise mechanisms have been identified over the years to help us understand its usefulness. These studies demonstrate how active the brain is when sleeping, and help define the role and complementary functions of the different sleep stages.

For example, we sleep in order to memorize and learn. Thus, while sleeping, our brain cells (or neurons) are busy consolidating memories and learning, sorting and storing all kinds of experiences we have had during the day. This makes sleep essential in the learning process. It is equally important for emotions and stress management, which is also harder when sleep is lacking. Sleep plays a role in the preservation of the immune system and helps to regulate almost all the functions of our body: from the brain, heart, and lung activity, to metabolism and the endocrine system. During sleep, the brain also removes the metabolic waste it produces during the day. Additionally, it is during slow waves sleep when the growth hormone is secreted in children and adolescents.

So, what can be done in order for us to get more sleep and therefore live happier, healthier, more fulfilling and, hopefully, longer lives? Amongst other things, the ‘Sleep On It’ awareness campaign recommends several key practises, such as getting into a regular bedtime routine, listening to your biological clock, minimising disturbances, and creating a comfortable sleep environment. This last factor is of utmost importance, for not only does comfort help us get to sleep, but it also helps us to stay asleep once we nod off. As well as preventing aches, pains and other malaises often associated with sleeping on poor bedding choices.

In fact, as quoted by the ‘Sleep On It’ campaign, “Your bedroom should be a room devoted to sleep and intimacy only. Choose a cool indoor temperature, comfortable bedding, and try to reduce the ambient sound level and exposure to light during the night.”
