Sleep for better health

With World Heart Day on 28 September and World Spine Day on 16 October, Vencasa is focusing on sleep health to show thier support. 

Sleep is not a luxury; it is one of the five most basic needs a human depends on to survive; the other four are oxygen, water, food, and shelter. Increasingly stressful lifestyles, continuous digital distractions, unhealthy eating habits and ever-changing, mostly unnatural environments all contribute to making it more difficult to obtain some of our most basic needs. It is more important than ever before to switch off from our over-stimulated world and sleep soundly.

Did you know that getting enough quality sleep at the right times can protect and even improve your mental health, physical health, quality of life? The way you feel while you're awake depends in large part on what happens while you're sleeping.   The World Leaders in Sleep, Vencasa, are cognisant of the upcoming World Heart Day on 28 September and World Spine Day on 16 October, and how sleep can play a role in these vital areas of health.

Rest your weary heart; People who don't sleep enough are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease regardless of age, weight, smoking and exercise habits.

Irregular and problematic sleep patterns can aggravate or cause high blood pressure.

Lack of sleep has been linked to weight gain and obesity which puts strain on the heart.

Support your spine with quality sleepYour back and neck can be seriously helped or hindered by your pillow and mattress. A great deal of the body’s healing and rejuvenation is done while sleeping, therefore it is vital that your sleep solution aids this process.
