As you lay in your bed trying to do the right thing by getting the right amount of sleep, it is also important to know what you are sleeping in. Most bedsheets are made with toxic pesticides, fertilisers, silicone waxes, harsh petroleum scours, softeners, heavy metals, flame and soil retardants, fasteners, ammonia, dyes, colourants, finishers, caustic soda, sulphuric acid, bromines, urea resins, halogens and formaldehyde to name just a few toxic chemicals used. This toxic chemical cocktail makes its way into the body, the bloodstream and lymphatic systems while we sleep forcing our immune systems to fight an uphill battle.
For many people, it can manifest in insomnia, multiple skin sensitivities, respiratory disorders, hormonal disruptions and skin allergies. Our bodies fight back, and attempt to safeguard against these intruders; but all warriors need rest, and if your immune system is constantly exposed to the fight against harmful chemicals, it will eventually begin to wither and wear down.
So when your day is done at your new dining table office, get in your bed and give yourself the best sleep you deserve.
