How much should we sleep?

Getting enough sleep every night is one of the most important aspects for human health, yet about 40 percent of adults suffer of insomnia. World Health Organisation (WHO) has called our lack of sleep a public health epidemic. It is important that we make sleep o priority in our life again. Here’s how much sleep you need according to your age:

Many of us put off sleep, but deprivation can cause more issues like:

  • weight gain
  • Weakened immune system
  • Hypertension
  • High blood pressure
  • Loss of memory,
  • Stroke
  • Heart diseases
  • And many other serious problems

One natural and safe way to improve your sleep and get more deep sleep phases is to use a weighted blanket. Weighted blankets provide a sensation known as ‘grounding’ that applies moderate pressure to the sleeper’s body and pushes them further into their sleep surface. Grounding also triggers the release of hormones that calm the nerves and lead to a good night’s sleep. Weighted blankets are suitable for adults and children.
