Impact of Sleep on Mom Mental Health

Mom’s Mind – How Sleep Affects Mental Health For Mothers

Having a child can be a beautiful thing, but of course, there are some changes to your daily habits and health that can drastically change with the introduction of a newborn into your world. But did you know that it is highly common for mothers (and fathers, to a lesser extent) to feel sleep-deprived well into a child’s life?

What This 2019 Study Had to Say

If you’re the proud mother of a five or six-year-old, you may still be experiencing the effects of sleep deprivation. According to a study published in the Sleep Journal by the Sleep Research Society, both men and women experienced a below-average level of satisfaction with their sleep quality and length.

In both women and men, sleep satisfaction and duration did not fully recover for up to 6 years after the birth of their first child.

Sleep and Mental Health

Besides reducing cognitive ability, sleep deprivation takes the shape of changes in mental health in many mothers. Today’s Parent’s article on sleep and mental health lists mental health repercussions from a lack of sleep, specifically around anxiety and depression.

The mental health conditions can be exacerbated or brought on by the lack of sleep and subsequent mood swings that occur as a result of sleep deprivation. Low moods can occur after one night of lacklustre sleep, but add four more years onto that and it’s safe to say that many parents’ moods, from frustration to impatience to anger, can be attributed to chronic sleep issues.

Making the Most of Sleep

So sleep affects a mother’s mental health – what can be done about it?

Sleep can be confusing to manage, with so many tips and tricks to test out. While a bedtime routine and even your day leading up to sleep are important factors to focus on, starting with a luxury mattress that will support you both mentally and physically can help you make the most of every minute asleep.

After years working on sleep health and psychology, our top recommendations for improving your sleep as a parent include:

Creating and Sticking to a Schedule

This means that you have to plan your sleep ahead of time and draw boundaries around your sleep schedule as much as possible. This might feel fairly easy for you, but for many, this may include developing a shift schedule with you and your partner to protect the quality of your sleep as much as possible.

Create A Short Yet Effective Bedtime Routine

You may not feel like you have enough time to have your own bedtime routine, but it’s important to introduce consistency to alert your body that it is time to sleep – therefore making every minute in bed count. This can simply mean having the same tea every night half an hour before bed, lighting a candle with a specific scent or staying screen-free for an hour before bed.

Build Your Comfortable Sleep Toolkit

Many factors can affect your quality of sleep, including your sleep comfort. A luxury mattress that is created with careful attention to materials and requirements, will be able to physically and mentally support you and your quality of sleep.

SAMINA’s Bio-Ceramic® Bedding

SAMINA has created a sleep system that includes luxury mattress bedding made from 60% organic cotton and 40% Bio-Ceramic® yarn. Bio-Ceramic® yarn delivers healthy infrared radiation and negative ions, both of which encourage healthy sleep patterns for users. These benefits help your body’s microcirculation, energy restoration, more drowsiness to promote the initial transition to sleep and optimal ambient heat and moisture.

Further, the construction of the bedding carefully considers physical support and how stress on the body can be reduced for a more restful and relaxed sleep.

A Last Word on Improved Mental Health and Performance

Dr. Liborio Parrino, Chair of the World Sleep Day Committee, stated in the World Sleep Day Toolkit:

“Extending our sleep period also improves our mental and body performances during the day and, last but not least, enhances our dreaming experience, as REM stages are mostly concentrated in the final portion of sleep, which is often curtailed by the urging rules of modern life.”

Better Sleep

Make sleep your priority. SAMINA sleep systems, including their luxury eco-friendly mattress, all of which are constructed to deliver comfortable sleep with the added health benefits of non-toxic mattress materials.

Eco Friendly Mattress

Why is an Eco-Friendly Mattress Important?

If there’s one thing modern technology has given us, it’s a window into the world. Unfortunately, this window has shown us that the world is in trouble and it’s up to us to start taking the steps necessary to save it. Sleeping on an eco-friendly mattress is one way to limit your carbon footprint on the planet and improve your sleep simultaneously.

SAMINA is a strong believer in living green, which is one reason we introduced our green mattress to the sleep industry. We like to say, “we’re saving the planet one bed at a time.” At first glance, you might assume we’re referring to the amazing sleep our customers receive on a brand new SAMINA luxury mattress, but we’re being far more literal. Here’s what you should know about our certified green mattresses and how they’re helping make a difference to the planet.

What is an Eco-friendly Mattress and How Does it Work?

Eco-friendly refers to products that aren’t harmful to the environment, like our non-toxic mattresses. It can also include products that help the environment in some way. At SAMINA, we’re a proud supporter of the environment. So, when we began designing mattresses, bed frames, and sleep accessories, we took the time to think about how our products would affect the world around us. This is how we developed our bio-ceramic bedding and SAMINA Healthy Sleep System.

Bio-Ceramic Bedding

The SAMINA Bio-Ceramic Bedding uses a mix of 40% bio-ceramic yarn (biodegradable material) and 60% organic cotton. This comfortable natural fabric is then folded around virgin sheep’s wool for a cushiony, insulated mattress topper like no other. This is biohacking in a whole new way.

The sheep’s wool used in all SAMINA products is removed carefully and without harming any creatures tall or small. Combining the wool with the bio-ceramic fibers produces a moisture-wicking, temperature controlling material perfect for hot or cold climates. We also love the detoxification qualities of the fabric, which allows sleepers to fully relax and eliminate mental and physical stress during sleep.

SAMINA Healthy Sleep System

The SAMINA Healthy Sleep System provides a variety of eco-conscious components for the healthiest sleep you’ll ever experience. These include:

  • A doctor recommended mattress made from natural rubber
  • Orthopedic flexible slat frame with customizable slats
  • LOKOSANA body grounding pad for bioelectrical absorption
  • Climate regulating wool pad to reduce sweat and moderate temperature
  • Bioactive duvets for warmth and comfort
  • Orthopedic pillows for proper head and neck placement during sleep

This system uses materials that benefit the environment, harnessing the earth’s best qualities and leaving behind fabric that can be recycled, reused, or biodegrade when no longer in use.

Benefits of Eco-Friendly Fabric

Using eco-friendly materials in bedding does more than just help the environment when those fabrics are no longer usable. They also provide a non-toxic, chemical free comfort that reduces allergies, illness, and pollution. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers make the switch to SAMINA:

Safe for Those You Love

Choosing an eco-friendly mattress guarantees the bedding you choose is natural and safe for your family, children and pets.

Economical

Sourcing renewable materials from the environment creates a sustainable product and provides financial support to local and international craftsman.

Durability

Natural materials are durable. There’s a reason sheep’s wool sweaters and blankets are passed down for generations. If well cared for, they are practically indestructible.

Easy to Clean

Some of the natural materials we use, like the SAMINA rubber mattress, are easier to wash than traditional mattresses. They repel moisture and host antibacterial properties fighting off mold and mildew that live inside cloth mattresses.

Choosing to go eco-friendly shouldn’t be a tough choice and at SAMINA, we like to think we make it a little easier by providing a product that sells itself. Our mattresses and sleep products aren’t just safe for the environment, they also provide a thorough and comfortable sleep you can count on.
