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.

Sleep Deprivation Is Bad for Business

Posted August 21st, 2018 in Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

Have you ever heard of “viral loneliness”? It may sound strange but a team of researchers at UC Berkeley have determined that a lack of sleep can literally destroy your social life. People suffering sleep deprivation have a tendency of experiencing greater feelings of loneliness and have less of an inclination to interact with others. Think of it as a type of social anxiety. What’s more, these feelings may cause others to view the sleep-deprived person as socially unattractive, creating this “viral loneliness” situation.

This situation is particularly concerning among those in the business world, where interacting with people and building relationships are vital to business growth. A recent study showed that the United States loses more than $400 billion each year because of workers that are suffering from sleep deprivation. On top of that, the U.S. loses over a million working days due to a lack of sleep.

With that in mind, ensuring you’re getting enough hours of sleep each night can affect not only your social life but also the bottom line. We’d certainly like to help you sleep better by discovering the incredible sleep experiences provided by high-end mattresses like Hästens and Vispring. Curious to learn more?

What’s Making You Feel Tired?

Posted July 19th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

During the day, you may run into a scenario where you’re feeling tired despite having slept a decent amount of hours the night before. Even if you get seven hours or so a night, the quantity of your sleep may not be positively affecting the quality. What’s going on? Let’s explore some possible factors.

You’re not sticking to a sleep schedule. It’s been said time and time again and it remains true: it’s important to go to bed and wake up around the same time each night, even on weekends. In fact, it’s arguably more important than getting seven hours of sleep or more. Your brain has a thing for consistency, which means your circadian rhythms will work together in harmony if you stick to a schedule.

You’re pumping iron too late. With so many responsibilities to take care of each day, it’s not always easy to work out in the morning or afternoon. While exercising certainly helps with falling asleep, doing it close to bedtime may prevent the release of melatonin which helps to induce sleep. Always try and work out early if time allows.

You may have an undiagnosed sleep disorder. A sleep disorder such as insomnia can affect millions of people yet they are unaware they are suffering from it. If you think that’s the case, consult a healthcare professional and also take a look at the type of mattress you’re sleeping on.

Hästens Is ICONIC

Posted July 16th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

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.

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.

Sleeping in May Be Good for You

Posted May 23rd, 2018 in Hastens, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

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.

Sleep Trackers May Negatively Affect Your Slumber

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

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.
