Chances are you’ve had one of those moments where you’re in bed for what seems like ages. This often results in insomnia, which isn’t helped by the anxiety that results from worrying about how the lack of sleep will affect you the following day.

Regardless of when it happens, insomnia, in its simplest form, simply means having trouble sleeping. However, it can linger for a couple of days, weeks, or in severe cases, even months, resulting in what’s called acute insomnia. Most of us have probably experienced short periods of acute insomnia, or we know someone who has. It will affect anyone regardless of age but there may be greater odds of developing chronic insomnia as a person ages.

Acute insomnia can happen for a number of reasons, but stress tends to be a common one. This stress may come from something such as being worried about something. As a result, the body decides dealing with this stress is a greater priority than getting some sleep.

Is insomnia affecting you on a non-critical level? One way to tackle is to simply not do a thing as your sleep schedule may get fixed provided you’re not napping or going to bed too early. Then again, your body may be using insomnia to tell you it’s not comfortable because your mattress isn’t providing the back support to help keep you asleep. If that’s the case, the mattress brands we sell like Vispring and Hästens are here to save the day. Visit us and we’ll be happy to tell you more and possibly make your insomnia a thing of the past.

37337310_839930532872447_6879609285370707968_nIn an industry such as mattresses where there are so many competitors aiming to perfect the science of sleep, the industry has evolved from a series of salespeople selling well-known brands to several lesser-known names catering to consumers looking for mattresses that are environmentally friendly, modern, and can genuinely help a person get a better night’s sleep.

This topic was one of the talking points in an article published earlier this year in ICONIC Magazine which covers design, food, travel, and style. Titled “Smarter Sleep is a Wink Away”, one of the brands covered in the article is Hästens which ICONIC recommends as the mattress readers should purchase “if money is no object”. One of the mattresses specifically mentioned is the article is the widely acclaimed Hästens Vividus which the article says is “the closest thing to a haute couture mattress you can get”.

If you’re curious to try a Hästens bed, visit the Brickell Mattress store today and see why you’ll never sleep the same way again once you’ve tried a Hästens mattress.

Sleep Cool During the Summer

Posted June 21st, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

damnitshotFor those of you that live in South Florida, you already know the temperatures can easily reach the upper 90s during the summer. With the humid nights, there are greater odds of waking up sweating and for many people, trying to get a good’s night rest when it’s hot is easier said than done. Thankfully, there are some easy steps you can take to potentially cool down when it’s time for bed.

One way to keep cool simply involves the use of water. Just before going to bed, wash your feet using cold water. You can also run your wrists under the cold water, which may also help further in lowering your body temperature so you sleep cooler. As an alternative to washing your feet, you can try placing them in cold water while you drift off to sleep, just be careful not to spill the water when you start to feel drowsy.

Remember that your mattress also plays a major role in keeping you cool. High-end mattress brands like Hästens use all-natural materials that help with wicking away moisture and they also allow air to circulate through the mattress so that you don’t wake up drenched in sweat.

How to Increase the Quality of Your Sleep

Posted June 11th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

sleepThe quality of your sleep matters a lot, because it can affect your mental capacity for the rest of your day. A restless, light sleep means you might still be tired in the morning. If you find yourself struggling to get a good night’s rest, then follow these tips to increase the quality of your sleep.

Take a sleep study. A sleep study is the best way to discover your sleep problems. The study can tell you why you have trouble sleeping, if you wake up multiple times a night, and what sleep cycles you’re in. Doctors can diagnose you with a sleeping disorder through a sleep study.

Put your electronics away. Electronics can distract from sleeping, and the brightness from the screen can keep you up. Put your phone in another room.

Sleep in a cool, dark room. Make sure you aren’t uncomfortable at night, because then you’ll have more difficulty sleeping. You could turn on a fan, use a different blanket, or change mattresses. Brickell Mattress sells dozens of mattresses that might help you out.

Try to go to sleep and wake up the same time every day. This will help your body fall into a sleeping rhythm. Over time, it might get easier to fall asleep.

These tips will help you maintain a steady, restful sleep every night but don’t forget that your mattress also helps. If you haven’t tried the magic of Hästens or other brands like Vispring, these mattresses are made with natural materials for a better night’s sleep. We’ll be happy to tell you more.

Sleepless Nights May Be Encouraging Late Night Munchies

Posted June 4th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

brickell mattressEach day, more and more studies are released detailing the multitude of side effects that may result from sleep deprivation. Sure enough, yet another new study shows that poor sleep may spur a desire to pursue unhealthy eating habits, potentially upping the risk of developing diseases such as obesity or diabetes.

While there is nothing wrong with a late night snack here and there, the study suggests that habitual late-night snacking may lead to health risks. More than fifty percent of study participants admitted that sleeplessness caused them to grab a late night snack on a regular basis.

Millions of individuals in the United States deal with the effects of sleep disorders like insomnia. Because sleep quality is closely intertwined with eating habits as well as a person’s mortality, it’s important to take the steps to sleep better. That means sleeping in a cool room, refraining from using mobile devices, and also sleeping on a quality mattress that provides the cushion and comfort so there is less tossing and turning. If you haven’t tried out mattresses like Hastens, we encourage you to visit Brickell Mattress and try one out. These handmade mattresses will have you falling asleep in minutes with less tossing and turning so you don’t feel the need to get up in the middle of the night for a bite.

Had a Bad Day? Just Let It Go

Posted May 30th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

let go of a bad dayWhenever you’ve had a day that was either bad or horrendous for whatever reason(s), there is one thing you need to do in order to get a good night’s sleep. Do something relaxing or fun, or both, to push away all that stress and anxiety. This remedy is supported by research in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association.

They found that employees experiencing negativity at work were reported to exhibit symptoms of insomnia, but those who were able to detach and unwind by listening to music, going for a walk, or doing yoga, slept much better. Increased blood pressure and fatigue are also effects of a negative work experience. The study also suggests that managers can play a huge role in this experience; that not bombarding employees with work-related matters outside of business hours can be the first step towards a healthier and enjoyable lifestyle.

A comfortable mattress also helps ease away any stress of the workday. With a mattress like Hästens, you’ll be asleep after a long workday in less than twenty minutes. As the mattress absorbs static, you’re ready to face the workday challenges when you wake up the next day.

Are You a High-Functioning Insomniac?

insomniaFor many people, it’s not uncommon for them to still feel like they didn’t get enough sleep despite sleeping for at least seven hours or more each night. If that sounds like you, you may be dealing with a sleep disorder such as insomnia, one of many sleep disorders that prevent a person from getting sufficient rest. It is possible to be a “high functioning insomniac”, which is why it’s so important to be aware of the signs and symptoms.

For example, you may notice that you’re constantly irritable, and it’s not because you’re dealing with mental health issues such as depression or anxiety. Not sleeping properly will make you cranky, which could cause your relationships with family, friends, or co-workers to suffer.

Are you getting sick more often? If the body doesn’t have enough time to rest and “regenerate”, you will become more prone to catching those pesky common colds as the immune system defenses aren’t working in top condition.

Snoring, being unable to concentrate, making careless mistakes, these may indicate a sleep disorder or it could just be that your mattress isn’t doing the job when it comes to making you feel genuinely rested. A new mattress such as Hästens may help you get rid of insomnia altogether.

Sleep Better with Good Décor

Posted April 26th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

bedecorMost people have circumstances out of their control when it comes to falling asleep. Perhaps there is a noisy pooch that likes to practice its bark during the late hours. And then there are the factors that one can do something about to create a bedroom that will help lull you to sleep. One of the easiest things you can start doing is getting rid of the electronics.

The thought of not being able to watch television in bed may seem ludicrous, but the more you can reinforce an environment that is meant for sleeping, the easier it will be to get some rest when you aren’t being kept awake by the glare of a television or smartphone screen.

You may also want to consider the décor. According to the National Sleep Foundation, using soft pastels or “cool neutral” colors in your bedroom will help with making you feel relaxed and at peace, reinforcing a calm environment. As for the lighting, investing in lights where you can control the amount of brightness can also help tremendously.

As you might guess, your mattress is also of great importance. With names like Hästens and Vispring creating some unbelievably comfortable sleeping experiences that are also eye-catching, you can rest assured that your bed will definitely go with the décor as you drift off into a blissful rest.

How Carpe Diem Beds Came to Be

Posted January 4th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

carpe-diem-beds

Last time we told you a little more about Swedish luxury bed maker Carpe Diem and what it’s all about. Today we’d like to tell you a little more about its history which begins with a man named Börje Thuleskär. Mister Thuleskär had dreams of becoming a chiropractor, which fueled his passion to learn more about human anatomy and physiology. As Thuleskär gained knowledge, he began to see the importance of sleeping well and how it affected the body and mind. With that in mind, Thuleskär decided to invest in a high end bed.

 

The bed Thuleskär bought failed to live up to his expectations. It was during an outing to the island of Kornö that Thuleskär had an epiphany of sorts, mesmerized by the beauty of the island and its natural landscape. Walking barefoot over the rocks, Thuleskär relaxed on a bed of wild heather, completely immersed in nothing but the natural sounds as the heather molded to his body shape. It was during this moment that Börje Thuleskär was inspired to create a bed focused on comfort and achieving a genuine sleep experience.

 

Today, Carpe Diem Mattresses of Sweden are exported to more than eleven different countries.
