High-Quality Bedding Can Improve Your Life

We all know we’re supposed to get a solid 8 hours of rest every night, but how much is our bedding getting in the way of a good night’s sleep? While sheets and other bed coverings might seem insignificant, research shows there’s actually a strong link between how well you sleep and how good you feel— suggesting that high quality bedding might have the power to improve your life significantly. 

Brooklinen knows all about the benefits of superior bed linens. Along with rich, long-staple cotton fibers and soft, single-ply thread counts, our bed linens boast some of the finest weaves and finishes available; all for the sake of ensuring the best sleep possible. To further break down the advantages of superior bedding, we’ve gathered the biggest perks of achieving (and keeping) a satisfactory sleep schedule. From boosted immune systems to more productive workdays, here are six ways fine bedding can help make you both a happier and healthier person.

You’re more productive and focused

According to research from the experts at Sleep.org, sleeping well at night might actually make you a better employee. Along with helping you stay focused and giving you lots of extra energy, a solid 6-8 hours of good sleep at night can improve your ability to make accurate, split-second decisions at work, enhancing both your productivity and job performance.

You feel happier

Everyone knows sleeping poorly usually winds up making you feel cranky, but did you know sleep actually influences your overall mental health? A study conducted by Harvard University overwhelmingly proves that getting the proper amount (i.e. 6-8 hours) of rest every night can combat depression and promote emotional stability.

Your memory is better

Not only can a good night’s sleep help you stay focused, it also improves your memory, and more importantly, your ability to learn. Research shows that during quality sleep, you can actually strengthen your memories and review skills you learned while you were awake (a process known to scientists as “consolidation”). Which means the better you sleep the more likely you are to retain—and recall—important information.

Losing weight is easier

Sleeping helps regulate two crucial hormones: ghrelin (which makes you feel hungry), and leptin (which makes you feel full). That’s why when you don’t get enough sleep you often wind up overeating the next day. In fact, researchers at the University of Chicago found that dieters who were well rested lost a whopping 55% more fat than those who were sleep deprived—meaning that better bedding and improved sleeping habits can help you lose weight faster and keep it off.

Your immune system improves

According to research from the Mayo Clinic, your body produces immune system-boosting proteins (called cytokines) while you sleep. That’s why people who don't get enough rest are way more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus (such as the common cold or flu). Even worse, sleep deprivation can also affect how long it takes to recover once you do get sick. So score yourself some extra antibodies and get some quality sleep.

You live longer 

Too little sleep—specifically six hours or less—has long been associated with shorter lifespans. Along with increasing your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure, research shows that people who routinely sleep six or fewer hours a night are at a 70-percent higher risk of a shorter life expectancy than people who sleep seven or eight hours a night. Translation: You’ll live longer if you make snoozing properly a priority.

While things like thread count and fabric fibers may seem meaningless, in reality luxe bedding truly has the power to transform your life.  Investing in high quality sheets and covers can do way more than make you sleep more comfortably; it can help you score a better sleep schedule and all of the life-altering perks that come along with it.
