While sleeping our immune system is restored and our central nervous system activated. Poor sleeping makes you sluggish and negatively affects not only your memory, but also your mood. In other words: sleeping problems are 24-hour problems, because a bad night automatically leads to a bad day.

The bed must follow your body and offer the right amount of firmness to allow your body to rest. So take plenty of time to try out various beds in the store.
25 percent of your sleep is deep sleep, 25 percent is dream sleep and 50 percent is light sleep. As you wake up easiest from a light sleep, it is advised to know when this takes place.
