The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep
Today is the launch of National Bed Month, organised by The Sleep Council… The Perfect excuse to let you all know how SUPER our beds at Supercity are!

With this in mind, we’ve come up with the top 10 benefits of a good night’s sleep.
Better mood. When we don’t get enough sleep we all notice that we’re more cranky throughout the day and less productive at work.
Clearer thinking. Have you ever experienced the fuzziness and confusion following a bad night’s sleep? Yep, us too! We’re more likely to make the odd mistake when we’re not well-rested.
Stronger immune system. We all know that when we’re sick the doctor will always tell us to rest up in bed. Our body needs sleep to fight viruses, so getting a good night’s sleep when feeling under the weather is important.
Keeps the heart healthy. A regular sleep pattern lowers stress levels, which can reduce chances of a heart condition by putting the body in a state of relaxation and reducing blood pressure.
Sleep can improve your memory. However, this needs to be quality sleep because if we’re just resting, the brain is still working storing memories. Quality sleep will ensure the brain is well rested.
Helps maintain weight. With a good sleeping routine, the hormones that control appetite become regulated, reducing the high calorie food cravings.
Helps with pain. If you’ve got an injury, such as a sprain, getting plenty of sleep can make it hurt less. There have been studies to link sleep with increasing pain threshold.
Reduces the chance of diabetes. Lack of sleep affects how the body processes glucose, which can lead to type 2 diabetes. Some research has revealed that adults who sleep less than 5 hours per night have a high increased risk of developing diabetes.
Healthier skin. ‘Good sleepers’ show less signs of ageing, as cells get a chance to repair themselves properly during a good night’s sleep.
Prevents Migraine and other headaches. Multiple studies show that poor sleep patterns / quality result in ‘episodic migraine’- so make sure you catch some ZZZZ’s if you’re a regular sufferer.
