Sleeping well is a notion that varies according to individuals. Indeed, we are not equal with the number of hours of sleep that our body needs to recover, nor in front of the quality of our nights. But having a good sleep is essential for a good quality of life.
The length of sleep required to recover varies from person to person: it is determined by the genes, as is the color of the eyes or hair.
An adult sleeps on average seven to ten hours per night. Everyone can evaluate the number of hours of sleep that it needs to be fit. For some, five hours are enough, while others feel tired if they have not slept ten hours. More than quantity, it is the quality of sleep that matters. There are small satisfied sleepers and large unsatisfied sleepers.
The quality of sleep, as well as sleep and wake-up times, also change with time: an elderly person tends to fall asleep and wake up earlier, with more frequent awakenings during the night.
We are all subject to passing insomnia, which may last a few days. A good sleep is often linked to respect for a ritual. If an unusual event such as a change of venue, a different ambient noise, a journey with jet lag occurs, our sleep is changed.
Transient concerns such as passing an exam, an important professional appointment, stress or intense joy also prevent us from falling asleep quietly or causing awakening in the middle of the night. In general, after several bad nights, the need to sleep regains the top and the normal rhythm of sleep is restored to allow the body to recover.
One tip to get a good sleep is to use a good mattress or air bed. This will ensure that both you and your guests are able to get the sleep that you deserve.
Sleep is fundamental to our balance, and lack of sleep can have a very negative impact on quality of life as well as physical and mental health. So do not hesitate to consult if insomnia occurs regularly (more than three times a week and for more than three weeks), when you wake up tired every morning or when you are drowsy in the day. Similarly, if there is a lasting change in the rhythm or sleep patterns, it is advisable to talk to your doctor.
