Getting a decent amount of rest each night is important for everyone.

In the professional world, an 8-hour, undisturbed sleep, allows us to work to our full potential. It keeps us alert and focused. It also increases our ability to work longer hours. For some of us, coffee might have the same affect, but the healthy choice is obvious: more sleep equals better productivity.

The same principal applies to our children.

As competition grows for Post-Secondary entrance, more and more young people are neglecting healthy sleep over hours spent studying. It is important to remind our children that sleep deprivation is much more detrimental to their learning potential then they realize.

On average, teenagers need approximately 10 hours of sleep each night. Younger children need even more.

One way to help your child receive the rest they need is to encourage a sleep schedule.

If, once they are in bed, they have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, the problem could be the mattress they are lying on.

Often children are given mattresses that are passed down and have worn out springs. These mattresses might look like an easy way to save money, but they may be hurting your child’s potential. The money you spent on a tutor could be going to waste if your child is not able to maintain concentration, due to a lack of rest.

A smart investment would be a new mattress from Simmons Mattress Gallery. Simmons has a huge selection of mattresses for every person in your household. Come browse our store with the whole family. Your children will thank you.
