    Top Sleep Mistakes to Avoid

    Last updated 12 hours ago

    Do you usually enjoy a nightcap just before you go to bed? Are you texting and emailing even after you get under the sheets? These seemingly innocuous habits could be preventing you from getting quality sleep. Consider your eating and drinking activities. If you consume caffeinated beverages throughout the day, they could be keeping you up beyond your bedtime. Alcoholic beverages can upset your sleeping patterns as well. A reliance on electronic devices may also be contributing to poor sleeping habits. Sleep experts recommend that to get sound, restful slumber, you should go to bed in a room with no lights or gadgets on. That means leaving your smartphone outside the bedroom and relocating your television to another area of the house. By making these small changes, you can enjoy better slumber each night.

    Let The Bedroom Store help you enjoy quality sleep. Our wide assortment of mattresses and beds come in a variety of sizes and hardness so that you can find the one that fits your sleeping preferences. To find out more about the inventory selections at our St. Louis stores, call (888) 709-1169.

    Why You Should Get Plenty of Sleep Each Night

    Last updated 1 month ago

    A good night’s rest can help you wake up feeling ready to face the day. What you might not realize, though, is that sleep can also help you avoid serious health conditions.

    This video reports on how a lack of sleep can put you at risk for diabetes and obesity. Your body requires sleep so that it can regulate metabolic processes. When you do not get the slumber you need, it can disrupt blood sugar levels, putting you at risk for diabetes. Sleep deprivation can also trigger hunger cravings. As a result, you might consume more calories than necessary and gain an unhealthy amount of weight.

    The Bedroom Store in St. Louis can help you achieve a better night’s rest with our diverse array of mattress products. For more information on our mattresses and beds, call (888) 709-1169.

    A Look at the Different Stages of Sleep

    Last updated 1 month ago

    When you fall asleep, your brain and body experience a series of changes. The cyclical nature of these changes has helped sleep experts better understand what stages make up slumber and how they differ from each other. The following information details what occurs as you drift into unconsciousness each night.

    First Stage

    The first stage of sleep is also the shortest. It lasts for only a few minutes, during which time your body prepares to enter deeper sleep. Because you are not yet in deep slumber, any number of events such as a dog barking or phone ringing can easily arouse you. In fact, you may not yet feel as though you were falling asleep should such a disturbance happen.

    Second Stage

    Sleep experts do not typically consider the second stage of sleep to be deep sleep, though the body continues to alter its activities in preparation for it. If in proximity to someone in the second stage of sleep, you might notice a change in breathing patterns, as respiratory function slows. The heart also decreases its beating rate at this time.

    Third Stage

    Once in the third stage of sleep, the body has finally entered deep slumber. Brain activity reflects this change in sleep by emitting slow waves called delta waves. This stage of sleep can continue for up to a half-hour if you remain undisturbed. Should you become awakened, you may feel confused or bewildered until you reestablish full consciousness.

    Fourth Stage

    Many people may know the fourth stage of sleep as REM sleep. When you are in REM sleep, brain waves change once again. Brain activity heightens, as do eye and respiration behaviors. REM sleep accounts for the period of slumber when your mind dreams.

    A quality mattress can help you achieve the deep slumber you require each night. If your mattress or bed is preventing you from enjoying sound sleep, The Bedroom Store can help.

    The Relationship Between Poor Sleep Quality and Stress

    Last updated 1 month ago

    When you don’t get enough sleep at night, how does it affect your behavior the next day? If you’re like millions of other sleep-deprived individuals, you might feel exceptionally stressed at work or home. Proper slumber can offset the effects of stress. Even if you have important deadlines to meet at the office or young children to take care of at home, getting enough sleep each night can help you better manage your responsibilities. In some cases, stress may make it more difficult to get adequate sleep. If you lie awake at night because of stressful thoughts, take the necessary measures to calm your body and mind before attempting to go to bed. When your stress levels are high, it becomes increasingly important to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night.
