It’s a simple fact that we all know is true. We work better when we are well rested.
An alert and awake brain helps us to focus, learn, and have a stronger memory. Consequently, when we're tired, we are less alert, make more mistakes, and have a harder time being productive at work or school.
Organic and healthy sleep allows our mind to take in additional and clearer information throughout the day. Even better, during a good night's sleep, we process and retain that information for longer periods of time. By enhancing connections between brain cells and transferring information throughout the brain, sleep motivates memory.
Researchers and scientists believe that during our sleep, memories and newly learned skills are moved to our long term brain areas. This means that the next time we try that task we are better at it. Now that is why our teenagers say sleeping in class helps them learn!
Healthy sleep, on an organic mattress, also helps us create new and inventive ideas along with remembering our old thoughts. When on sleep mode your brain pulls together your experiences and thoughts that allows you to be better at problem solving and being productive.
This just goes to show that sleeping on an organic latex mattress and pillow is key to helping you sleep healthy. We don’t want to throw away that wonderful brain growth by sleeping on toxic chemicals (learn more on our Toxic Mattress Industry post).
