The Hall Collection is Serious About Sleep
Sleep is the foundation of good health. Without good sleep, we would not be able to thrive and live our best lives. Experience exceptional sleep beyond anything you’ve ever imagined before with The Hall Collection.
Modern research confirms that sleep is as important as good nutrition and regular exercise and is the foundation of good health. It impacts on our mental, physical and emotional well-being and affects our mood and performance the following day. We all know that a good night’s sleep has the power to make us wake feeling strong and energised and able face any potential challenges of the day.
Chronic fatigue has become an epidemic and one of the biggest public health concerns of
our time. Studies in Sleep Research Centres all around the world confirm that in our demanding technology driven societies, poor sleeping habits are dangerously increasing our risk of developing chronic diseases such as Alzheimer, cardio-vascular disease, compromised immune function, depression, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
Many people are not aware of how many times their sleep cycle is disturbed when they unconsciously move due to discomfort. It’s not only the quantity of sleep that is important, but also the quality.
Our sleep is divided into various cycles. Although all these cycles are very important, it is only during REM sleep that our brains and bodies restore and regenerate. If we move, the REM sleep cycle doesn’t happen and we are left feeling tired when we wake, even when we’ve slept for eight hours or more.
The stages of sleep
Sleep follows a pattern of REM and Non REM. These cycles occur about every 90 minutes.
Non REM (75% of night): As we begin to fall asleep, we enter Non REM sleep, which is composed of stages 1-4.
- Between being awake and falling asleep
- Light sleep
- Onset of sleep
- Becoming disengaged from surroundings
- Breathing and heart rate are regular
- Body temperature begins to drop
- NON REM
Stages 3 and 4:
- Deepest and most restorative sleep
- Blood pressure drops
- Breathing becomes slower
- Muscles are relaxed
- Blood supply to muscles increases
- Tissue growth and repair occurs
- Energy is restored
- Hormones are released
REM (25% of night):
- First occurs about 90 minutes after falling asleep and recurs about every 90 minutes,
getting longer later in the night.
- Provides energy to brain and body
- Supports daytime performance
- Brain is active and dreams occur
- Eyes dart back and forth
- Body becomes immobilised and relaxed
Sleep is the single most effective thing you can do to reset your brain and body health.
Every single physiological system in the body, and every single operation of the mind is wonderfully enhanced by sleep when you get it and detrimentally impaired when you don’t.
– Matthew Walker, Author, Why We Sleep.
