Why Is Sleep So Important?


The science behind sleep nerve-signalling chemicals are called neurotransmitters, they control whether we are asleep or awake by acting on different groups of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain.

Neurons in the brainstem, which connects the brain with the spinal cord, produce neurotransmitters such as serotonin and norepinephrine that keep some parts of the brain active while we are awake.

Other neurons at the base of the brain begin signalling when we fall asleep. These neurons appear to “switch off” the signals that keep us awake. We need sleep because it gives the body a chance to recharge. Sleep also helps prevent diseases and without enough of it the brain cannot function properly.

Research also suggests that a chemical called, adenosine builds up in our blood while we are awake and causes drowsiness. This chemical gradually breaks down while we sleep.

Since sleep and wakefulness are influenced by different neurotransmitter signals in the brain, foods and medicines that change the balance of these signals affect whether we feel alert or drowsy and how well we sleep.

Caffeinated drinks such as coffee, and drugs such as diet pills and decongestants stimulate some parts of the brain and can cause insomnia, or an inability to sleep.

Many antidepressants suppress REM sleep. People who suffer from insomnia try to solve the problem with alcohol.

While alcohol does help people fall into light sleep, it also robs them of REM and the deeper, more restorative stages of sleep.

Instead, it keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep, from which they can be awakened easily.

We lose some of the ability to regulate our body temperature during REM, so abnormally hot or cold temperatures in the environment can disrupt this stage of sleep. If our REM sleep is disrupted one night, our bodies don’t follow the normal sleep cycle progression the next time we doze off.

Instead, we often slip directly into REM sleep and go through extended periods of REM until we “catch up” on this stage of sleep.

If we’re awakened after sleeping more than a few minutes, we are usually unable to recall the last few minutes before we fall asleep.

This sleep-related form of amnesia is the reason people often forget telephone calls or conversations they’ve had in the middle of the night.

It also explains why we often do not remember our alarms ringing in the morning if we go right back to sleep after turning them off. Lack of sleep greatly affects our day to day which is why sleep is crucial.

There are plenty of tips and tricks to unwind at night that are healthy and productive.

Following a healthy diet and exercise will help immensely if you are trying to improve your quality of sleep and overall health. 

Mattress Accessories

I should also mention some accessories you may need with your mattress to optimize your sleep experience:

EzySleep Mattress Box Spring

Box Spring - A sturdy foundation often made of wood that evenly distributes the weight of the mattress so it retains its integrity and also evenly distributes the full weight throughout the bed.

Bed Frame - Usually made of either metal or wood, it's a frame that elevates the mattress off the ground. Sometimes it will require a box spring but many platform bed frames are available on which you can just put the mattress directly.

EzySleep Mattress Metal Frame
