If you love sport and train a lot, then you know that the more intensively you train, the more sleep you need. Sleep doesn’t just help us to regenerate physically, it also has a decisive influence on our mental fitness. That’s because your cerebral cortex, which controls important basic mental functions like focus, speed of action, decision-making and your ability to concentrate, is active during sleep. If you get too little sleep, you notice the effects immediately – your basic functions are impaired, your performance reduced. Poor sleep quality or a lack of sleep increases your risk of illness and injuries, which also take longer to heal.

But getting enough sleep is just one part of the puzzle. You also need to sleep well. A great way to support the quality of your sleep is with a Climaactive down duvet  which uses active climate management and the ingenious Outlast concept to regulate climate throughout the night and create the perfect conditions for a deep and restful night’s sleep.
