You may recall that I was lucky enough to work with Serta Mattress last year. I received a free mattress to try out and I’m currently still enjoying the iComfort mattress now, thanks to Serta. Since I find infographics to be interesting, I thought I’d share this neat and very informative one from Serta with you. It contains results on the Sleep and Exercise Study they recently completed. Take a look to see some of the more surprising facts, such as…
- Non-exercisers tend to be more excessively sleepy than exercisers and have more symptoms of insomnia and sleep apnea which increases risk for heart disease and stroke.
- Approximately one-half (51%) perceive their sleep quality to improve on days they exercise.
Also, I wanted to share some tips to help you sleep better, courtesy of Serta.
- Exercise regularly.
- Keep your bedroom quiet and cool with a comfortable, supportive mattress such as the such as Serta’s Perfect Sleeper, the official mattress of the National Sleep Foundation that addresses the 5 most common sleep issues such include tossing & turning, lack of support (leading to back pain), sleeping too hot or too cold, partner disturbance and mattress roll-off or sag.
- Practice a relaxing bed time ritual.
- Remove work materials.
So, what do you think of the sleep and exercise study’s findings? Does anything surprise you or did you suspect some of those facts already? Also, did you like those tips for sleeping better? Do you have any of your own tips?
Disclosure: I was a Serta Mattress blogger last year and I received a free mattress with compensation for it. However, I’m posting this because I thought it was interesting.
