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.

hastensLogoWhen you want to know what the latest fashion trends are, the lifestyle magazine Elle remains the go-to source for everything that’s in style. Chances are you’ve probably seen issues of Elle at your local supermarket. What you may not know is that there is also a version of Elle focused on home décor appropriately called Elle Decor which bills itself as “the ultimate guide to decorating and design”. In other words, if you want to make your home look stylish and contemporary, Elle Decor is a fantastic resource.

Late last month, Elle Decor published an article focused on 25 bedroom tips to create an impeccably-styled room. The fourth tip centers around giving your bedroom a monochromatic look as a way of creating a sense of greater space. The tip includes a photographic example of the bedroom including the bed being used which just so happens to be none other than a Hästens bed.

Your Body’s Way of Telling You It’s Sleep Deprived

Posted May 7th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Chris Corey

sleepDeprivationMost people remain on a never-ending quest to catch a couple of more hours of sleep each night, but few people actually get enough. The body has several ways of making it known that you’re not getting the amount of sleep you should, and it goes well beyond a feeling or tiredness or constant yawning.

Do you find yourself feeling unusually hungry? Contrary to what you may think, feeling like you’re almost starving might have something to do with being tired versus a missed meal. Not getting enough sleep may result in higher levels of a hormone called ghrelin, which is also responsible for triggering hunger. Instead of that late night meal, it may be wiser to go to bed instead.

Are you finding yourself unable to recall things such as where you left your keys or does it seem like you can’t focus on a task at work? It may not be early signs of dementia, it could be a lack of sleep which can cause lower levels of alertness and increase forgetfulness.

Don’t forget that your mattress might be keeping you up instead of lulling you to sleep. If you toss and turn a lot, a Hästens or Vispring bed, for example, might be worth considering. These beds have developed a sterling reputation for their incredible comfort, great back support, and durability, among numerous other qualities.

Sleep Trackers May Negatively Affect Your Slumber

Posted May 2nd, 2018 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Chris Corey

trackSleepWith the ever-increasing popularity of wearables, sleep trackers are going mainstream more and more as people continue their never-ending quest to achieve and adopt better sleep patterns and habits. While these devices are supposed to be helpful, recent research provided by the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine may suggest otherwise.

The research appears to indicate that the sleep trackers are actually contributing to worse sleep because the participants/patients were placing too much attention on the sleep tracker. Individuals self-diagnosing themselves with sleep disorders like insomnia were ruining their sleep because they were not meeting the standards of what the tracker determined was “good quality” sleep. Hence, the people who participated became dependent on their device, leading to unnecessary concerns and stress at bedtime and the belief that whatever their sleep tracker was telling them was the truth.

Instead of relying on a tracker, you may wish to consider practicing better sleep habits and making sure that the mattress you’re sleeping on isn’t keeping you up at night. We’ll be happy to give you some tips on making sure your mattress is the right one for you.
