Celebrate Valentine’s Day by Giving a Gift with Health Benefits
Valentine’s Day is a huge moneymaker for the flower and chocolate candy industries. A study showed that an average of $2 billion dollars is spent on flowers and $1.7 billion is spent on chocolates and candy just for Valentine’s Day alone. Jewelry is the highest money maker for the holiday with around $4.3 billion spent on Valentine’s Day jewelry gifts. $3.7 billion on flowers and candy alone?! That is a ton of money spent on products that are a sweet gesture but only last for the week. Why not consider a gift that will keep giving for many years to come all while providing your loved one with some great health benefits? A mattress, pajamas, and/or a set of sheets would continue to give back into the relationship for many years to come.
Let’s first take a look at the health benefits that a good night’s sleep offers.
Helps your Mood
During the night, your brain processes emotions. When you miss out on sleep, your brain doesn’t have that time to process and respond the right way to emotions leaving you more likely to have more negative than positive emotional reactions the following day. Getting a full night’s sleep helps your body reset and improve your reaction to emotional strain. With a good night of sleep, you will be prepared for the emotional challenges you may face the next day.
Depression and anxiety are increased in those who battle insomnia. Sleep plays a major role in keeping your high and low emotions in a more solid-state.
Provides a Stable Glucose Level
Deep sleep is critical for resetting your glucose levels. During a night of deep sleep, your glucose levels drop. When deep sleep is not achieved for long enough, your body doesn’t see that dip in glucose levels, resulting in higher glucose levels the next day.
Curbs Your Appetite
Lack of sleep changes your levels of leptin and ghrelin (appetite hormones). So, a good night’s sleep can actually curb your appetite. When you are tired, it is a lot harder to make good decisions when choosing between a big greasy cheeseburger and fries or a healthier food option. The amount of time you spend in bed (especially in a deep sleep) is just as important when it comes to weight loss as what you eat and your time at the gym.
Helps Your Heart Stay Healthy
Since your heart is a muscle, it needs time to rest to prevent it from wearing out. As you sleep, your blood pressure decreases. This gives your heart time to rest. Elevated blood pressure for a prolonged amount of time can lead to heart disease and stroke.
Promotes Healthy Brain Functions
Have you noticed when you have been tired that you have a harder time focusing? That’s because sleeping plays a big role in memory, learning, and focus. It may be hard to retain new information, recall details, and pull details from your memory.
Gets Your Immune System Ready
The way your body responds to bad bacteria and viruses is by identifying them as something harmful and then your immune system attacks the bacteria and viruses. When sleep-deprived, your body’s immune cells are thrown off. Just like your memory, the immune cells can be delayed in reacting when you have been lacking sleep. When your immune cells are slow to respond, you will get sick easier.
So, now that you are aware of the many health benefits you are ready to treat your love to something that will help them reap all those great benefits.
The Purple Mattress
If your spouse dreads going to bed at night because your bed is so uncomfortable that it leaves them sore, stiff, achy, unrested, and exhausted in the morning, then you might want to invest in a new mattress for them. The Purple Mattress is the perfect choice of a mattress to wake rested. It has 2 inches of breathable gel grid to cradle all of their pressure points (like hips and shoulders) while keeping the rest of their body fully aligned. Add to that the dual layer of comfort foam base, and you get a night of perfectly supported sleep.
You’re probably wondering what a “gel grid” is… well, it’s a gridded layer that’s made of a temperature-neutral, hyperelastic gel. This grid is designed to flex directly under pressure points while still supporting the rest of your body. As you move in your sleep, it will spring back and reform instantly in order to continue cradling your body. It has over 1,800 air channels built into the grid to allow airflow and to prevent it from capturing your body heat, so you’ll stay cool while sleeping.
Below the gel grid is a dual layer of comfort foam. It’s made up of a soft, cushioning layer and a firm, supportive layer to create an ideal combination. Both foams are high in density to offer a durable, long-lasting base.
A custom, super soft knit SoftFlex Cover with tons of stretch covers the grid. This stretch allows it to flex with both your movements and the Grid’s. It’s made of a breathable material to complement the Grid’s air channels to help you sleep cooler.
The Purple Mattress easily matches the average lifespan of ordinary mattresses and often outlasts them. It’s even guaranteed for 10 years under a full warranty.
Purple Sheets were designed to enhance the comfort of The Purple Mattress. While the mattress moves to adapt to your body, normal sheets do not. Because they won’t stretch, they block your hips and shoulders from being cradled by the Purple Mattress the way it was intended. But the innovative Purple Sheets will stretch, allowing you to experience the full comfort and support of your bed. Because they stretch as you move on them, they will stay put on your mattress. No more waking up to find that you have tossed and turned so much that your sheets have come off of the bed.
These sheets are super soft and feel luxurious, so you’ll enjoy snuggling up in them. And they’re refreshingly breathable, so you’ll stay cool and comfortable throughout the night. You’ll get a better night’s sleep and will wake up feeling refreshed and revived. The sheets are available in a variety of colors, so choose your favorite!
Sleepy Jones + Purple Pajamas
Because Purple Sheets are so soft and comfortable, they have evolved into the next logical step…
Pajamas! Sleepy Jones + Purple Pajamas, made out of that same amazing silky soft fabric that Purple Sheets are made of. They feature the same ideal mix of stretch and breathability as the sheets, combine that with a perfect, easy fit and you get pajamas that let you take the comfort of your bed along with you even after you get up. Like with the sheets, the fabric is designed to move with you as you sleep or lounge. And it feels luxuriously soft against your bare skin!
Purple partnered with the sleepwear expert Sleepy Jones to create these pajamas and to give this limited collection their classically tailored good looks… you may even be tempted to wear them outside of the bedroom! These are definitely not your average pajamas. Some of the thoughtful details include French seams, contrast piping, and pockets in the pants and on the top. They’re available for both women and men and the sizes range from small to extra large.
Give a true gift of love this Valentine’s Day from Purple! Hey, if you buy a Purple mattress for your spouse, you will also reap the benefits of a great night’s sleep!
