Me and my younger sister used to sleep over at our older brother’s house quite often before I got married. He only have a one bedroom apartment so whenever we come over he usually sleeps in the couch so that me and my sister can share the bed. We recently came to visit and was planning to do our usual bond; watch movies, play console games, board games, pizza party and of course annoy each other. When bed time came we noticed that the mattress that he has is no longer in good condition. Still, me and my sister tried it out and unsurprisingly we sank in the middle. It was quite funny at first but it was also alarming for our brother. The next morning we weren’t really able to get a good sleep. We then talked to our brother and mentioned the condition of the mattress. He said that he knows of course and was actually planning to replace it soon, well in fact he mentioned that he already ordered one and just waiting for it to be delivered.
Sleep Deprived Brother
My big brother mentioned that for weeks he has been experiencing drowsiness, low energy, he easily gets sick, have baggy eyes, dry skin as he has been tossing and turning all night as he is struggling to get some sleep. He even transfers to the sofa sometimes just to try to get some more sleep but then still, he is deprived of a good night’s sleep. According to WebMD:
When you get less sleep than you need, your body does not just “adapt,” but rather you may begin to experience symptoms of sleep deprivation. Your judgment and reaction time may slow, you may experience memory loss, depression, a weakened immune system, and pain. It can be especially dangerous to drive when you’re sleep deprived since focusing and keeping your eyes open can become difficult.
Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep
With our without Science’s back up we all know the great effects of a good night’s sleep to our body. If we have uninterrupted sleep we feel refreshed in the morning, have more energy, feel lighter and have a good mood throughout the day. According to Healthy Sleep:
Scientists have gone to great lengths to fully understand sleep’s benefits. In studies of humans and other animals, they have discovered that sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.
Evidently, our brother’s move to toss his old mattress is a definite win for him (and for us too!). When me and my younger sister was about to leave our brother’s place, the mattress has arrived. Of course we wanted to see it so we waited for it to be unboxed and it was worth the wait, it has a nice overall look and was really comfortable. My brother mentioned that he found it through mattressbattle he said that this site really helped him to find what he was looking for. It was a great purchase and he can’t wait to have a good slumber with his new mattress.
