Tired Teenages Need New Beds

Tired Teenages Need New Beds

Here at Bed King we have often spoken about the sleeping patterns of teenagers and how they differ from adults.

But a new study by Professor Damien Léger, director of the Centre du Sommeil et de la Vigilance, has shown that over the last 25 years the amount of teenager are getting has decreased by almost an hour. What is more, is that almost 20% of teenagers are accumulating a ‘sleep debt’ - less than required sleep hours despite naps and catch up sleep. This poor sleep pattern is exacerbated by irregular sleep hours over weekends and holidays which causes damage to your natural sleep patterns resulting in ‘poorer’ sleep. Find out about the consequences of teenagers not getting enough sleep here.

However, the study has shown that people, especially teenagers are more likely to fall asleep quicker when they are sleeping on a new more comfortable mattress. Not only are new mattress more likely to be firmer, but the added comfort and orthopedic protection. The study suggested that people could gain as much as 31 minutes of sleeping time by upgrading to a newer, more comfortable mattress as it would allow them to fall asleep quicker. These extra 31 minutes could result in as much as 22 extra minutes of deep sleep phase which is the most refreshing a healthy phase as it contributes to physical recovery and growth - which is essential for children and teenagers.
