We live in a sleep deprived culture. Many of us either have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. While continual poor sleep (less than 7 hours a night) can have a detrimental effect on our health, naps can help lessen the effects.
A study by the Sorbonne in Paris found that short naps were found to reduce stress and boost the immune system. Brice Fairut, one of the study’s co-authors states, “This is the first study that found napping could restore biomarkers of neuroendocrine and immune health to normal levels.” The data suggests that a 30 minute nap can restore the negative effects of a poor night’s sleep.
We at The Biomat Store have long known the restorative effects of a Biomat nap. With the addition of far infrared and negative ions (components of the Biomat) to a nap, the body easily goes into a deep state of relaxation and rest. You wake up refreshed and ready to go.
