Hastens Makes the October Issue of Departures

Posted September 24th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For the best in lifestyle, the American quarterly lifestyle magazine Departures remains a top source for the finest travel, art, fashion, home design, and more. As a subscription available solely to those who hold an American Express Platinum card, the magazine represents the “crème de la crème” of high-end.

The October 2018 issue of Departures focuses on Scandinavia and one of the small features is dedicated to none other than Swedish manufacturer Hästens. The brief article titled “Why buy a $150,000 mattress in Sweden?” takes a quick look at the process that goes into creating the Hästens Vividus mattress. Readers can get an idea of what the Hästens Dream Factory is like and the astute attention paid to architecture, which reinforces the meticulous care and craftsmanship that goes into the creation of the widely acclaimed mattresses.

Perhaps most refreshingly, the Departures article reinforces how Hästens continues to focus on using the expertise of highly qualified artisans to create its mattresses by hand. Visitors who take a tour of the factory will quickly notice there is no such thing as a robotic machine doing what Hästens has continued to fine-tune and perfect for years.

Pick up a copy of Departures next month and check out the Hästens mention. Visit Brickell Mattress and try one of the mattresses for yourself.

Sleep More, Drive Better

Posted September 18th, 2018 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

For those of you that live in South Florida and commute to work every day, a large chunk of your time is spent sitting in traffic and dealing with aggressive or distracted drivers. It is imperative to remain vigilant and drive defensively to avoid becoming a victim of a car crash. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, however, you’re only making things worse and riskier for yourself.

A recent SLEEP study reveals some news that isn’t all that surprising. People sleeping fewer than seven hours within a 24-hour period showed greater odds of being involved in as well as causing car crashes. The odds become even greater among individuals that have slept fewer than four hours.

The general consensus seems to be that a person should sleep at least seven hours a night and as much as nine hours, but few people get this much sleep realistically. While we all know that driving drowsy has its major risks, this study sheds some fascinating light on how the number of hours slept correlates with the odds of being involved in or causing a crash.

Could your mattress be playing a role in delaying your efforts to fall asleep? With Hästens or Vispring mattresses, there is practically no tossing and turning. These beds are handmade and have proven time and time again how they make people fall asleep in just a few minutes and keep them asleep. If you live in South Florida and want to add some extra hours to your sleep, we can help you find the right mattress at Brickell Mattress.

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.

A Quality Bed Means a Better Night’s Sleep

Posted September 12th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When you’re reading tips and articles on improving your sleep quality or falling asleep faster, there are some common suggestions that are frequently shared. For example, many of them will tell you to refrain from using your smartphone because of the light it emits. Others will suggest making sure that the room you’re sleeping in as dark as possible.

An important aspect that often gets overlooked yet is arguably just as important is the quality of your bed. Besides being comfortable, it’s also important to make sure that the bed you sleep on is supportive without being too hard or soft. A quality mattress will provide just enough firmness to make sure that your spine remains aligned while contouring to your unique body shape.

With that in mind, it’s just as important to make sure you aren’t sleeping on a mattress that’s too old. Eventually, the mattress will begin to lose back support, resulting in poor sleep posture and therefore a poor night’s sleep. If you find yourself waking up with aches and pains despite sleeping eight hours, it could be that your mattress is not doing what it’s supposed to be doing.

Thanks to names like Vispring and Hästens, there is no need to worry about the quality of your mattress. These manufacturers have developed sterling reputations for their meticulously designed mattresses that provide optimum support and lull you to sleep within minutes. If you want to practically guarantee yourself a better night’s sleep, we have the answer.

Sleep Deprivation May Have Serious Health Risks

Posted September 5th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Why is it that when it’s bedtime, the brain seemingly decides it’s the perfect time to start throwing various worries your way? If you find this is a chronic situation that is causing sleep deprivation, you may wish to evaluate how it is affecting your health…namely your heart health.

Some recent studies brought up at a European Study of Cardiology meeting revealed that getting too little or even too much sleep may be linked to an increase in the risk of developing cardiovascular problems, including strokes, hardening of the arteries, a heart attack, and more. Eleven different studies with over a million participants were used to determine that besides eating well and living an active lifestyle, it is vital to prioritize sleep.

Although it’s typically recommended to sleep about seven to nine hours, authors of the sleep studies suggested six to eight hours is essential to reduce the chances of cardiac disease. Failing to get at least six hours increases the chances of coronary heart disease by just over ten percent. Worse, sleeping too much increased the risk by over thirty percent.

While these studies only suggest a link, they do reinforce the need of getting a good night’s sleep. Part of that means actually falling asleep when it’s bedtime. We can certainly help with that by introducing to the incredible sleep experiences provided by mattress brands like Hästens and Vispring. Curious? Visit our store and we’ll be happy to have you try one of these incredible mattresses.

The Importance of Sleeping Through the Night

Posted August 27th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For many people, they may fall asleep at a decent time only to wake up several times during the night, resulting in something called fragmented sleep. If the side effects of insufficient sleep weren’t bad enough, recent research once again reinforces how it can contribute to heart disease.

A recent PESA study showed that individuals who slept fewer than six hours a night or woke up several times during the night showed an increased risk of what’s called asymptomatic atherosclerosis, which is the scientific named for the hardening and narrowing of the arteries. Most people are aware that hardening and narrowing of the arteries is a major contributor to heart disease.

The study involved nearly 4,000 middle-aged individuals in good health who were monitored for seven days while their sleep quality was recorded. Several health factors were taken into account such as their physical activity as well as their stress levels, possible depression, or sleep apnea risk.

Even if you get around seven to eight hours of sleep every night, interrupted sleep can still cause you to feel tired and as if you barely slept during the night. That’s why mattresses like those by Hästens and Vispring are made to help you fall asleep faster and perhaps more importantly, stay asleep. With their distinct design, they are both extremely comfortable and they conform to your body so there is little to no tossing and turning during the night.

Are You Suffering from Sleepless Nights or Insomnia?

Trying to fall asleep when you have to get up early the next day can be incredibly frustrating, especially if it’s something that happens on several occasions. These frequent sleepless nights may cause you to wonder whether you’re dealing with a sleep disorder such as insomnia. However, it’s important to know the difference between having a genuine sleep disorder or if you’re simply not sleeping well.

Take a look at your sleep hygiene. If you regularly look at your phone, watch television, or use your laptop before bed, the blue light is not doing you any favors. It is also important to take into account the temperature of the room, if you’re sleeping with any lights on, or if you’re going to bed at different times each night. All of these may be causing sleep disturbance.

Are you taking any medications or are you drinking caffeinated beverages too close to bedtime? If so, this will also contribute to poor sleep quality. You should also consider if something is stressing you out, whether it’s mentally or physically.

It’s also important to remember that with insomnia, not only is it difficult to asleep, it typically involves waking up several times during the night and staying awake, resulting in short periods of sleep where disruptions are likely. Hence, differentiating between genuine insomnia and sleeplessness is vital.

Do keep in mind that your mattress may be a contributor. Having a mattress that is designed to help you achieve the deep sleep period is key. If you have questions, we can point you towards a potentially better night’s sleep.

Why sleep is important

However there is never enough time in our day to get everything done. We constantly work and try pleasing our loved ones and in doing so we sacrifice what’s most important which is our sleep.If we don’t get enough rest it affects us mentally and physically. Our brain doesn’t just shut off but our whole body works hard the whole night as you sleep.

Sleep is vital because it helps you function the entire day to your best capacity. It helps you think clearly, think faster, and be more attentive. It obviously helps you work more efficiently when you sleep the regular eight hours that you should be sleeping then when you sleep a couple of hours a each day.

Loss of sleep actually hurts your problem solving abilities and attention to detail. Your less productive at work or anything you do for that matter and your more prone to getting into an accident. The loss of sleep even interferes with the way you act around people and more susceptible to getting sick and depressed. Sleep can even affect our hormones, immune system, and cardiovascular health. If you don’t rest there are many diseases that may present themselves in the near future; for instance diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and much more.

A good night’s rest would be rapid eye movement (REM) sleep which is considered a deep sleep and when you dream the most. Babies usually sleep about 16 hours, children 10 hours, teenagers about 9 hours, and adults 8 hours

However there are also many causes to sleeping less; like electronics, caffeine, medication and as you get older you may sleep less because of the amount of medication you take. There are different medicines that your doctor may prescribe to help you sleep better and different relaxation techniques as well. A goods night rest is essential every night to help you be the best version of yourself each day.
