Dealing with Lower Back Pain

Posted June 14th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Chris Corey

lowerBackThe low back, or lumbar area, serves a number of important functions that are imperative to a healthy life. These important functions include movement, structural support, and protection of certain body tissues. It is clear that the lower back plays a pivotal role in ensuring that important functions of the human body run properly. Lower back pain is commonly caused by lumbar strain, nerve irritation, and bone encroachment. Here are some options to remedy lower back pain.

Physical Therapy

Exercise is the ultimate foundation for any lower back pain relief and it should be one of the first non-surgical treatments for relieving your pain. With consistent guidance from your physician and physical therapist, find an exercise that works for you as the severity of back pain differs from person to person. Some exercises widely practiced to alleviate lower back pain are core strengthening, aerobic exercises, stretching and flexibility exercises, and even testing the limits of pain tolerance.

Mindfulness and Meditation

It can be extremely depleting both physically and especially mentally to manage lower back pain. Keeping your mind on your back pain will only escalate your frustration, irritability, depression and other psychological aspects. Some proven relaxation strategies to stray your mind from focusing on the pain are meditation, yoga, and even tai chi.

Lifestyle Modifications

When dealing with lower back pain, it is important to accept limitations and adapt. Start taking notes that trigger your back pain the most and avoid them if possible. Listen to your body and learn to pace yourself, even if this means taking a break when mowing the lawn, or making several trips when carrying groceries. Not only will this ease your back pain, but it will also prevent the underlying condition from worsening.

Could your mattress be causing you all of this lower back pain? It’s quite possible. Visit us at Brickell Mattress and we’ll be happy to help you improve your sleep and get rid of your back pain.

How to Increase the Quality of Your Sleep

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

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.

Why You Should Sleep for at Least Seven Hours

Posted June 6th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Chris Corey

sheaintsleepinHow much sleep are you getting each night? If you’re sleeping on a mattress like Hästens or Vispring, you should be getting plenty of sleep, provided you’re going to bed at a reasonable time. If you aren’t getting at least seven hours of sleep a day, however, you may be increasing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Yet another study (this one published in a journal simply called Sleep), evaluated over 12,000 adults between the age of 30 and 74. Each participant was classified into several categories based around how much they slept such as five hours or less, seven, eight, or more. The study results showed that participants who slept for at least seven hours each night had a lower “heart age”, potentially indicating a decreased risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

Once again, this study and the many others that have revolved around sleep reinforce how important sleep is to your current and long term health. If sleep disorders such as insomnia are keeping you at night, it’s time to take the steps to ensure you’ve created an environment that is meant for sleep and that you’re sleeping on a genuinely comfortable, supportive mattress. Less tossing and turning means more snoozing.

Sleepless Nights May Be Encouraging Late Night Munchies

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

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.

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.

Sleeping in May Be Good for You

Posted May 23rd, 2018 in Hastens, Vi-Spring by Chris Corey

sleepInAfter a long, stressful workweek, sleeping in on a Saturday is one of the most enjoyable ways to relax and recover. You may have heard or read, however, that sleeping in on the weekend is not good for you…or is it? According to a recent Washington Post article, sleeping in may save your life.

A study published in the Journal of Sleep Research tracked the sleeping habits on weekdays and weekends of more than 30,000 participants over thirteen years. The study found that those who slept for five hours or less each night throughout the entire week did not live as long as those that slept for at least seven hours every night. The surprising part? Those who slept fewer than seven hours consistently but slept in for an additional hour or two during the weekends also had a better life expectancy as the people who always slept for seven hours each day.

The study still requires additional research, but it may give you a reason to sleep in on a Saturday. If you’re having trouble staying asleep, it could be that your mattress is keeping you up at night. Considering how important it is to get a good night’s sleep, a Hästens or Vi-Spring mattress might just the thing to help you live longer.

The Importance of “Awake Time”

Posted May 15th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands by Chris Corey

awakeTimeThe only possible way to determine how well you’ve slept is by analyzing the changes in your body during what’s called “awake time”. Hästens has been focusing on awake time for ages. When a person sleeps on a Hästens bed, their reaction when they wake up is typically an enthusiastic “Wow!” The best night’s sleep can only be measured by how great you feel while awake. If you want to feel genuinely awake for the first time in your life, consider a Hästens bed.

Life’s only proven anti-aging medicine in this world is indeed sleep. Sleep deprivation can lead to countless of diseases, which is why doctors always stress the importance of a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately most if not all American bed brands are fully synthetic, made with foam derived from petrochemicals, fire retardants, and lots of synthetic material fibers. These mass-produced beds are simply made to cater to the mass population who take sleep for granted. Many of these beds made in the U.S. won’t make it beyond eight years, and most will break down before they end their warranty period due to the fact that synthetic fibers won’t hold up.

All Hästens beds are handcrafted with earth-like materials such as horsetail hair, lambswool, organic cotton, mohair, and flax, among others. These natural materials do several important things for your body that the rest of the beds cannot do:

Natural fibers absorb moisture and heat from your body while the rest of the beds simply repeal. In turn, you are always kept dry and cool while you sleep.
The natural materials absorb static electricity accumulated in the body. You feel extremely relaxed and you fall asleep quickly. Static can be obtained by walking on carpets, opening doors, touching people’s hands, driving cars, working on computers or any other electronic devices, for example.
Hästens natural fibers provide amazing comfort that no other foam or synthetic bed can.
Hästens beds can provide optimum orthopedic support as these beds can be made specifically for your height and weight. You can choose from soft/medium/firm/X-firm or split supports.
It’s not uncommon to feel so relaxed in a Hästens bed, you end up falling asleep in as little as fifteen minutes. Upon waking up, your body feels full of energy, it’s almost as if you’ve slept for days! In addition, your cognitive senses will be improved, including your alertness.

People who sleep in a Hästens bed won’t sleep in anything else for the rest of their lives.
