NATIONAL REPORT—Getting a sound, restful night’s sleep reaps countless health benefits. It’s the cornerstone of improved wellness. While most of us understand we should get at least seven to nine hours of solid sleep a night, we take for granted just how important that goal is to our long-term health. According to Sleep.org, here’s a few key reasons why everyone should make it a priority:
- Improved Focus and Memory. When you get a good night’s sleep, it’s easier to keep your attention on and complete tasks more efficiently. You are also likelier to have fewer memory problems.
- Improved Mood. When you’re sleep-deprived, your emotions are harder to control and you feel more stressed. So the more sleep that you get, the less cranky you’re going to feel.
- Improved Productivity. At work, you’ll notice that you get through tasks faster and make fewer mistakes.
- Improve Health. Your immune system needs sleep to stay strong and fight off colds and other infections—critical when you travel for work. In the long-term, getting plenty of sleep helps reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other serious diseases.
As purveyors of sleep, hotels worldwide continue to make the guest sleep experience a priority and are investing significantly toward this goal. They understand the power of this key differentiator and its impact on guest satisfaction and loyalty. In a social media driven marketplace, reviews are hard to ignore. In fact, 55% percent of travelers said they look for reviews that specifically address sleep quality in a recent TripAdvisor survey.
