Children ages 6 -12 should sleep between 9 -12 hours according to the The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The American Academy of Sleep Medicine suggests teenagers get 8 -10 hours of sleep, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends anyone over the age of 18 sleep at least 7 hours per night.
Everyone knows sleep does a body good. Deep rest is important for physical, mental, and behavioral health.
And we all know that getting a good night’s sleep is sometimes much easier said than done. Certain sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea are often the culprits of inadequate shuteye.
Sometimes more common issues are to blame for disrupting sleep. Anxiety, racing thoughts, muscle aches, and hormonal imbalance are among many reasons for causing a lack of sleep.
At Sleep Connection, we strive to provide our customers with products to help you achieve sound, peaceful sleep when you lie down for bed every night.
We offer must-have sleep products to help you fall and stay asleep so you can be alert and ready to face the next day.
Which one will you choose?
Snoring keeping you awake at night? Whether it’s your own or your partner’s snoring that’s sabotaging your sleep, you undoubtedly want it to stop.
This innovative device was scientifically designed to detect the vibration that occurs during snoring.
The wristband uses self-adhesive electrode gel patches to prevent snoring by automatically sending natural smooth electrical pulses without disturbing normal sleep, which help you to reposition your body and jaw to improve airflow.
Taking an afternoon nap can be a great solution to the 3 o’clock slump. But if you’re lucky enough to sneak one in during your day, does it provide the rest you need? Or is your bedtime during normal business hours because you work the graveyard shift?
Whatever time of day or night you get your zzz’s, sleeping in complete darkness has positive effects on your body. Research has shown that sleeping in a dark room regulates melatonin levels and diminishes depression.
What exactly is melatonin and how does it work?
Melatonin is defined as a lipid soluble hormone produced by the brain in response to darkness in order to help with the timing of your circadian rhythms and with sleep.
Unfortunately, as we age, the hormone production decreases. Low melatonin levels can also be due to dementia, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases or illnesses.
Snoring and respiratory distress are often the result of low humidity in the air – both indoors and outdoors.
Static electricity, which can cause dust to stick to electrically charged surfaces, can occur in areas of low humidity. Allergy sufferers are then exposed to these small particles and that leads to coughing, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, etc.
If you’re an allergy sufferer or have sinus problems, you’ll love the relief you’ll get when you use our Cool Mist Humidifier.
Our compact, beautifully designed humidifier releases cool moisture into dry air. This allows your nasal cavity and throat to breathe in air without all the nasty particles and pollutants clogging your passageway.
The cool mist settles into the moisture in the air and will not change the temperature of your space. You can also add your favorite essential oil for relaxation and aroma enjoyment.
