During sleep, our body regenerates, new knowledge is strengthened and diseases are warded off. Sleep can process stress and is the basis for a day full of energy. Besides a balanced diet and exercise, restful sleep is the key to a physically and mentally healthy life.

How much sleep is healthy?

"If all experts agree, caution is advised," says Bertrand Russell. This means that if you find different figures when asked about a healthy amount of sleep, there is no reason for uncertainty. On the one hand, the need for sleep varies from person to person and depends on age on the other. Newborns get 14 to 17 hours of sleep per day, teenager’s eight to ten and adults seven to nine hours. The quality of sleep is more important for healthy sleep than the length of sleep because four to six hours of bed-sleep are sufficient to be physically fit again the next day.

How long do we have to sleep?

Every person has an individual need for sleep. While some people only need about four to five hours of sleep a night, others need eight or nine. Politicians or managers sometimes boast about how little sleep they need. But sleep researchers warn Rested, you make more sensible decisions.

The need for sleep changes over the course of a lifetime: babies sleep particularly heavily. Children need about ten to twelve hours to be fit and able to concentrate during the day. Adults need an average of seven to eight hours of sleep, senior citizens a little less. However, the quality of sleep is more likely to decline with age than the need for sleep: older people often compensate for the shorter night's sleep with naps during the day.

According to experts, the optimal sleep duration is reached when a person is able to perform during the day without being tired. A temporary lack of sleep can be compensated by simply sleeping longer afterward. However, it is not possible to fall asleep.

Buying mattresses - you are the measure of all things

One and the same mattress, there is not one for all. Every person is different.

Preferred sleeping positions play just as much a role as your height, body weight, physique, pressure sensation, sweating behavior, or allergies. No matter how you lie, the mattress should always keep your spine straight and neither sags nor is unfavorably curved. Lack of sleep or restless sleep would otherwise be the result and could have a negative effect on your health. Only with the right mattress can your body relax completely and health problems are prevented. Our trained specialists will be happy to advise you and together we will find the right mattress for you. So that you can sleep heavenly!

Adjustable mattress

If you have an (electrically) adjustable bed at home, you need an adjustable mattress. Due to the nesting of the springs (here, the springs are individually tightly assembled by hand), most innerspring mattresses from Sattler Bedding, unfortunately, cannot be adjusted. If you did, the springs could get stuck. Nevertheless, Sattler also has an adjustable mattress in its assortment. Since the springs of the "BoxDrop" mattress are in a row, the spring core can be adjusted without the springs getting caught.


BoxDrop: Adjustable mattress

So if you are looking for adjustable mattresses for an adjustable bed, the "BoxDrop" mattress is just right for you. Although the springs are in line, it offers almost the same lying comfort as Sattler's non-adjustable mattresses. Because even in the adjustable version, the springs are individually sewn into Calico cotton bags, and natural materials are used.

Sleep and health: Tips for good and healthy sleep

It is important to understand that when it comes to sleep hygiene you can do a lot for a good sleep during the day. But restful sleep needs even more conditions. During the night, all electrical appliances such as mobile phones, televisions, and so on should be turned off in the bedroom, as the electromagnetic waves can disturb sleep. However, if television or music is part of the sleep rituals, the devices should be placed at least two mattresses away from the body.


"As you make your bed, so you sleep," is the common saying. Back-friendly mattresses only yield where the body's pressure on the mattress is greatest. In addition, natural materials such as cotton increase relaxation and well-being when sleeping.


You should also ensure the right sleeping climate in your bedroom by airing the room well before going to bed. The ideal sleeping temperature is 16 to 18 degrees Celsius with humidity of 50 percent. The bedroom must be sufficiently darkened, as light signals to the body that it is daytime and thus the time to be awake. Pay attention to your meals and avoid eating large quantities just before going to bed. A hot bath in the evening can additionally promote relaxation and lead to a relaxed sleep. By taking these points into consideration, you will create ideal conditions for a healthy and restful sleep even before going to bed.
