Teens actually need about 9 1/4 hours of sleep each night to function best (for some, 8 1/2 hours is enough). Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights. (This is according to the folks at sleepfoundation.org.)
One way to ensure that your teen is getting the proper amount of sleep is to provide them with a high-quality mattress. Seriously, folks, a good mattress makes all the difference in the world when it comes to falling asleep quickly, and more importantly, staying asleep.
Our teen, Kyle, wasn't getting the best sleep at all until we upgraded his old, worn out mattress to the Nature's Sleep Fiji Gel Mattress. Before switching to Nature's Sleep, Kyle would toss and turn for hours, simply because he couldn't get comfortable enough to fall asleep. He would be hard to wake up in the morning, and would be groggy through the afternoon. That, in turn, affected his performance at school. How can a kid concentrate on his studies while running on very little rest?
While Nature's Sleep has a wide variety of mattresses to choose from, we decided that the Fiji Gel Mattress would be the perfect fit for Kyle. The Fiji offers the same fabulous memory foam comfort that Nature's Sleep is famous for, but it also has the benefit of gel.
Why choose a mattress that incorporates gel? Well, the top gel layer of this mattress conforms to the body perfectly, ensuring maximum comfort. This helps relieve pressure points, ensuring you wake up feeling refreshed rather than achy.
Gel sphere technology also helps to keep the body's temperature regulated, which will help to eliminate those annoying night sweats. (Maybe this is just a guy thing, but both my teen and my husband sweat buckets at night, which ends up waking them up!)
- He falls asleep quickly. Before switching to Nature's Sleep, Kyle had an awful time getting to sleep. His old mattress was a premium quality memory foam mattress, but it was several years old. It no longer gave the proper support, and it took tons of tossing and turning to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. Now that he's got the Fiji Gel Mattress, he falls asleep quickly. Going to bed is something he looks forward to, and he constantly tells us how he's got the best mattress in the world.
- He STAYS asleep longer. Now that Kyle has the Fiji Gel Mattress, he actually sleeps through the night. No more getting up every hour on the hour, complaining that he just can't sleep. Since making the mattress switch, Kyle falls asleep quickly, and generally stays asleep until his alarm clock goes off in the morning. He's getting more hours of sleep each night, which happens to make waking up in the morning a bit less painful, too!
- His ability to concentrate has improved. Since Kyle is finally able to get a decent night's rest, his performance at school has improved. He enters class with a clear mind, and is actually retaining the information he's taught. This means he can understand the material better, which then means higher scores on assignments and tests. I am thrilled to say, as of today, he has nothing but A's and B's in his classes! It's amazing what difference a good night's sleep can make!
