Concentration.

Lifestyle

Sitting well and getting regular, good quality sleep can contribute towards making your brain more effective and productive; leading you to feel sharper, more attentive and focused throughout the day.

For something as seemingly simple as sleeping, it can also be quite a difficult thing to master. HSL’s range of luxuriously handmade furniture take care of the most important job of supporting you and your body while you rest.

Why?

If you aren’t sitting correctly, your posture can be affected. This could lead to slouching and leaning forward for long periods of time. When your body is in this position, internal pressures in the chest act like a tourniquet and impede the flow of blood from your feet to your heart and through your chest to your brain, causing difficulty concentrating, thinking, faintness, tiredness, and fatigue.

Having a comfortable bed is just as important when talking about improving your concentration. When you sleep, there are some very important processes happening internally, including the release of hormones. One of these hormones is called Cortisol; this dips at bed time and then increases overnight which promotes alertness in the morning. Sleeping well also helps restore/repair your mind and body, and reduces the build-up of fatigue to ensure you are prepared for the day ahead.

You might benefit from an adjustable bed as it helps you find a more comfortable position when relaxing or reading before sleep. Some might benefit from sleeping in a more elevated position to assist with your breathing or sooth aching joints, and in so doing, you get regular, good quality sleep. As noted above, this will contribute towards making your brain more effective and productive, leading to feeling more attentive and focused throughout the day.
