When we purchase items for our homes, we usually don’t consider whether these items can affect our health and well- being. How would a choice of kitchen table or sofa or washing machine or carpet matter? Yet, with the rise of ‘conscious consumerism,’ we are learning that our purchases can affect our environment, other people and ourselves! Your consumer dollar actually ‘votes’ for the kind of world in which you want to live. So, in a sense, what you choose to buy is, in many ways, an investment in others and in yourself. This concept is really clear when it comes to purchasing bedding. We now know that some mattresses contain toxic chemicals. We now know that some types of mattresses conform more easily than others to our body, or help to regulate body temperature while sleeping.
Considering that you will be on your mattress for 6-9 hours a day, one-third of your life, it makes good sense to purchase the best mattress you can afford and that will offer you optimum rest while on it.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has proclaimed insufficient sleep a public health epidemic. (www.bettersleep.org). Poor sleep can result in irritability, exhaustion, poor decision making and distractibility and research is showing that sleep deprivation can also lead to physical problems such as weight gain, bone loss, depression or stroke. It cannot be overemphasized how important good sleep is to good health.
