How does a large, lightweight, hand-harvested goose-down quilt sound? The softest Hungarian goose down quilt that snuggles you into warm sleep on chilly nights. Quilts can keep you physically warm and comforted. But did you know they might be better for your mental health too? Keep reading to find out how.
Better Sleep = Better Mood
The circadian rhythm is one of the body’s most important homeostatic functions. Even the slightest disturbance can cause great disruptions in functioning. You might feel irritable when you haven’t gotten enough sleep, but that might be the least of your concerns.
If you’ve gotten good sleep, you’ll be in a better mood. You likely won’t fight with your partner for not doing the dishes, and likely won’t put yourself in a worse mood.
One’s mood is governed by hormone and neurotransmitter levels. The balance of these chemical messengers is also responsible for energy levels and motivation throughout the day.
It all starts with a good night’s sleep.
What’s better than the comfort of being safe and surrounded by a larger, warmer being? While that’s not always possible for everyone, an insulated quilt around your bed, creates a haven waiting for you at night. Quilts are perfect if you don’t want to get cold at night, but you have a general tendency to sleep hot (which is normal, by the way).
If you’ve got a quilt that you especially love the look of, make your bed every morning. Doing this increases the quilt’s life and is a great motivation booster for the rest of your day.
Sleep Anxieties Away
Have you ever pulled an all-nighter and felt your heart beat super fast or weirdly the next day? In the past, people would stay up when they sensed danger so that they could flee and increase their chances of survival against a threat. When you skip your sleep for a day, your body assumes it must be in danger. The body’s sympathetic nervous system stays alert for long hours. This has a risky long-term effect.
Did you know that consistently not sleeping well can increase your risk for heart disease? With a Hungarian goose down quilt, you can be assured that you’re snoozing the right way.
Sense of Security
Do you remember what it was like to sleep with your parents when you were younger? You forgot about the whole world and enjoyed dreamland. With a 700+ Fill Power, a lightweight, yet warm Hungarian Goose Down Quilt, you can recreate this blissful experience every night. With this calm, peace of mind is not very far away.
Other Mental Health Issues
Irregular or insufficient sleep can be comorbid with other mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Although a quilt cannot fix all your problems, it can bring you one step closer. For many people, sleep disturbances aggravate mental health issues. Why not do everything you can to improve your sleep rhythm?
What Makes a Good Quilt?
Bedding can be expensive. You don’t want to turn your pockets inside out buying a quilt that isn’t even worth it. Quilts should ideally be ethically sourced. Their manufacturing should be free from harmful chemicals, and they should likely come with a warranty. Of course, with bulky bedding, bed bugs are a concern. A dust- and termite-resistant quilt should be the ideal way to go.
Get a quilt. When you sleep well, you live well.
