If you find that you lack energy during the day and are excessively sleepy, then it could be that you are suffering from some kind of virus or have a sleeping disorder; there are many sleeping disorders, and sufferers may be aware of suffering whilst others may not – if you’re suffering from insomnia then you’re probably well aware, as you are probably either find it difficult to get to sleep or you have trouble staying asleep. It may be that you’re suffering from something such as sleep apnoea which causes the sufferer to wake up many times during the night resulting in poor quality of sleep. Poor quality of sleep causes tiredness because it prevents our bodies from being able to carry out the re-energising processes that occur whilst we sleep. For this reason is just as important to get a good quality of sleep as it is to get enough sleep, if you’re having trouble with either of these then tiredness will almost certainly occur during the day and you will feel sleepy.
Whilst viruses and sleeping disorders can easily be a cause of poor sleep, there are many other factors that can contribute to poor sleep as well, such as poor sleeping routines, poor diet or lifestyle, excessive drug or alcohol use, long-term illness or aches and pains. The last of those reasons, aches and pains, can be caused by many things; there are things that we do during the day that can cause them; however, if you are sleeping on a poor mattress then this can also lead to aches and pains. These aches and pains can be a cause of frustration during the day, but at night, when you’re trying to sleep, they can wake you up many times and cause you to toss and turn as you try to get comfortable. It is best to try and minimise these aches and pains, wherever possible, to ensure the best possible quality of sleep; one of the best ways is to ensure that your mattress is comfortable enough and fit for purpose, if it is not, then you will most likely continue to suffer the second pains.
These days, there are many mattresses that can help minimise these aches and pains, rather than using an old-style traditionally sprung mattress, new and much more comfortable memory foam mattresses not only help to alleviate the causes of these aches and pains, they can also sooth aches and pains picked up during the day. The different design of these mattresses enables them to support your back body in a much better way compared to traditional old-style mattress using springs. As such, the pressure points that build-up on your body with old mattresses as you sleep do not occur, which is where the aches and pains are located. Many experts recommend using memory foam mattresses due to the many benefits that they give, and regard them as an excellent way of improving sleeping habits which leads you to have more energy and better quality of health.
