How much Sleep Do You Need?

How much Sleep Do You Need?

1

Oh don’t we need our sleep! Why we need it, why it can be hard to get, and how that affects everything from our daily routine to our income.. So, how much sleep is ideal? Studies show that people who sleep between 6.5 hr. and 7.5 hr. a night, live the longest. And people who sleep 8 hr. or more, or less than 6.5 hr., they don’t live quite as long.  The amount of sleep you need depends on various factors — especially your age.

Consider these general guidelines for different age groups:

Pregnancy. Changes in a woman’s body during early pregnancy can increase the need for sleep.

Aging. Older adults need about the same amount of sleep as younger adults. As you get older, however, your sleeping patterns might change. Older adults tend to sleep more lightly and for shorter time spans than do younger adults.

Previous sleep deprivation. If you’re sleep deprived, the amount of sleep you need increases.

Sleep quality. If your sleep is frequently interrupted or cut short, you’re not getting quality sleep. The quality of your sleep is just as important as the quantity.

Contrary to what is often thought, sleep is actually an active, organised process. How and when we sleep is governed by a number of factors. These include factors under our control, such as whether or not we are sleep deprived, and factors beyond our control.

Mums work harder than anyone could imagine, whatever their age. And if she has young children the the day is packed with running around looking after them, and it can be hard physical work, with either staying at home with them when they are young or taking them to school.

Housework, shopping and cleaning all take their toll physically on her, and at the end of the day all you want to do is sleep! So if  she  like most new mums, a good night’s sleep seems as far away as the moon and stars in her weary mind.

Can Organic Cotton bedlinen help with Ezcema?

Eczema is one of the greatest skin problems facing Britain’s youngsters today. Eczema has been diagnosed in one in five children and one in twelve adults in Britain, making eczema levels among the highest in the world. Because it is prone to drying out and is easily damaged, skin with eczema is more liable to become red and inflamed on contact with substances that are known to irritate or cause an allergic reaction.

So what can be done to help Children with Eczema?

Avoiding certain triggers including chemicals, rough clothing, excessive heat and moisture may reduce eczema and the itching and inflammation associated with it.

There may also be benefits to buying organic cotton bedding for your children so they sleep in a natural, chemical free environment including the following:

Chemical Free:

Organic cotton bed linen is pure, soft and gentle on the skin and is grown without harmful chemicals or pesticides so it doesn’t irritate delicate skin. So when you buy organic cotton bedding for your childrenyou know it is of the highest quality and ensures the safest and most comfortable sleeping environment.

 

Organic cotton bed linen is grown without chemicals, pesticides and genetic enhancers ensuring your children are not exposed to dangerous chemicals. Children sleep for around 40% of the so it’s important that your bedroom is as comfortable, warm, properly aired and as free from chemical irritants as possible. Childrens skin is much more sensitive than adults. If there are traces of bleaches or synthetic dyes in a childs bedding, they can cause harmful skin conditions or illness. So buying organic cotton bed linen is a great idea for anyone who is at all sensitive to chemicals and toxins.  Many chemicals used in the production of non organic bedding, such as fire retardants and formaldehyde are constantly seeping out of your non-organic sheets, duvet covers, and pillow cases.

Breathable:

The main benefits of organic bedding are that it is soft, natural, breathable and much healthier than conventional non organic cotton. Organic bedding and organic cotton linens make a world of difference to our optimal health, well-being and natural comfort for you and your family. Organic bedding is beautifully soft and smooth, and naturally resists common allergens.

Regulates Temperature:

Organic bed linen can help children have a healthy and comfortable night’s sleep as organic cottons are far more effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration than non-organic fabrics. This high level of absorption helps to eliminate the excess sweating that some people can experience when sleeping in non-organic cotton or synthetic bed linens.  Using organic cotton bed linen can also reduce incidences of fungal infections, like athletes’ foot, that are aggravated by sweating.

Stylish, Comfortable, Affordable and Long Lasting:

Organic cotton bed linen is very affordable and is also very durable and long lasting.   Because they have been grown naturally the organic cotton fibres reach their full growth and they are stronger than commercially grown cotton fibres.  When you care for your organic cotton bed linens properly they last longer than commercially grown cotton or synthetic sheets and duvet covers. Cotton is incredibly soft, machine-washable and allows the child’s skin to breathe naturally. Gone are the days when organic cotton bedding meant dull fabrics and unimaginative designs. Organic cotton bedding is now available in the most up to date, stylish designs in luxurious fabrics.

A number of parents have found organic children’s bed linen have helped to reduce discomfort associated with eczema.
