Got Jet Lag? Try This

Posted October 18th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens Eala by Jorge Lopez

Jet lag – the sleep disorder that impacts your precious sleep when crossing over time zones. Your body’s internal clock is impacted, disrupting the circadian rhythm and leaving you to either lay awake at night or doze off during the day. Jet lag can leave you feeling like you only got half a night, or in some more severe cases, only a quarter, even if you were in bed all night. Returning from vacation is never any fun, but it is even worse when you’re battling jet lag.

Some hotels, such as the Hoshinoya Tokyo Hotel, try to fight this by adding in deep-breathing spa regimens for those coming into Japan feeling wiped out. This regimen offers three days of body-warming herb treatments, open-air baths, humidity adjustments, room brightness adjustments, and deep-breathing techniques from a massage therapist are included to help you battle a severe time difference.

Some believe exercise may be able to help. Working out may help the muscles ease and not feel so tight, especially when followed by stretching. Exercise is also widely known to make sleep better, so if your jet lag is causing you to stay awake all night, try a simple routine before bed.

Of course, a great handcrafted mattress can help, like Hastens Eala. There is no better way to fall asleep than in the world’s comfiest bed. When your sleep environment is prime for dozing off (do not forget to turn that thermostat down and shut the lights off!), your chances of beating jet lag are much higher.

How a Better Mattress May be Able to Help With Revenge Bedtime Procrastination

Posted October 7th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

If you find yourself climbing into bed, ready to get a full night of rest, only to end up turning on Netflix and spending hours binge-watching your favorite shows more often than not, it may not be insomnia. Revenge bedtime procrastination is a sleep disorder that impacts many and is classified as putting off sleeping when it is time to go to bed.


Originally a term coined in the Netherlands in the late 2010s and popularized by the Chinese internet in 2016, this phenomenon occurs when people feel that they do not have much control over their daily lives and subsequently refuse to go to sleep on time to gain a sense of freedom.


During the Covid-19 pandemic, a larger number of people reported experiencing revenge bedtime procrastination since many felt the increased need for “me time.” Lines between work, life, extracurricular, and family have increasingly become blurred, causing people to need some kind of buffer.


Though we expect to fall asleep the moment we climb into bed, that is not the case. Falling asleep is a process, and one of the top mattress brands may be able to help. When we lack back support and comfort in our bed, it will be more difficult to fall asleep. A comfortable bed from a mattress collection can help you ease into the process of falling asleep. You may even start to look forward to going to sleep, rather than resenting it, when you have a great bed. With a luxury bed, you will have something to look forward to in the day that will simultaneously help you sleep better.

Shift Work Sleep Disorder May be The Reason You Can’t Sleep

Posted September 28th, 2021 in Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring, ViSpring Sublime Superb by Jorge Lopez
Working during the day can prove to be exhausting in of itself, but if you find yourself working late into the night or getting up before the sun does, you may develop what is known as Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD). While most people work a normal 8 am to 5 pm schedule, a large portion of Americans do not – this can be in a large number of expressions, such as the medical field. The pandemic has changed working hours, so many find themselves working more unconventional hours than before, which can harm your sleep health. 


SWSD disrupts your circadian rhythm, causing excessive sleepiness at work or insomnia when trying to sleep. Of course, having a cozy sleep environment may help – try a wool mattress, like the Vispring Sublime Superb, to transform your bedroom into a sleep oasis. 


Ultimately, with unconventional work schedules, it can combat the body’s natural internal clock, misaligning your body’s signals to sleep.


It is estimated that SWSD causes its sufferers to lose one to four hours of sleep per night, leading to sleep deprivation that can decrease cognitive performance while increasing the risk of injury/accidents. Common symptoms include:
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep.
  • Short amounts of sleep.
  • Trouble concentrating.
  • Excessive tiredness.
  • General lack of energy.
  • Poor mood. 


There can be health risks associated with SWSD, so if you feel that it may be to blame for your lack of sleep, see a doctor for a personalized treatment option. Many will suggest
melatonin supplements or sleeping pills. 
If you schedule a sleep session with one of our sleep experts in Miami or Las Vegas, you will most likely be recommended one of our holistic organic mattresses from the VISPRING collection to help improve your sleep and quality of life without taking sleep supplements. Call us today and schedule a free sleep experience with the guidance or our sleep experts.”

The Health Benefits of Napping

Posted September 28th, 2021 in Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses by Jorge Lopez

Is there anyone who does not enjoy a good nap? Now you have a good excuse to spend your Sunday afternoons dozing off instead of doing much-need housework – it can provide you with several health benefits. Daytime naps may help those with sleep disorders but can still make a difference for those without.

A short nap can help with sleepiness in the day and help you be more productive by providing you a much-needed boost of energy. Naps speed up alertness, increase reaction time, and help your cognitive functions perform to the best of their ability. Along with it – an increased memory. Multiple studies have found that nappers outperform those who do not nap in remembering new information. Naps can also boost your mood, which is perfect for a midday break from work.

If you can, try taking a daytime nap break from work (best done on one of the Hastens mattresses!)

Naps do not need to be long either – short naps on a horsetail hair mattress are actually better to reap in the health benefits of a good nap. Try a 15 to 30-minute nap. They will leave you feeling refreshed but will keep you from transitioning into a deeper sleep and waking up feeling more exhausted. In fact, long naps can cause issues – sleep inertia and insomnia.

Sleep inertia will have you feeling very groggy and most likely worse off than before your nap. With insomnia, too much daytime sleep can make it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep at night, ultimately disrupting your entire sleep cycle.

Next time you have the urge to doze off, maybe try a quick nap for the kick of energy you need.

Exercise Could Reduce Your Risk of Sleep Apnea

Posted August 30th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring, ViSpring Coronet by Jorge Lopez

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that blocks the upper airway when sleeping, caused by a temporary relaxation of the throat muscles. Symptoms include snoring, headaches, high blood pressure, and daytime sleepiness. It is estimated that 10-20% of adults in the United States are affected, which is quite an issue since OSA can significantly increase the risk of severe health problems like cancer and cardiovascular disease. Excessive weight, age, chronic nasal congestion, smoking, and asthma are common causes of OSA, but new research shows that there may be a way to lower your risk.


Exercise, along with a quality mattress like the Vispring Coronet mattresses, can provide people with healthier sleep. That is because physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and sleep longer. Maintaining an active lifestyle and staying clear of too much sedentary behavior (like watching TV or sitting too long at your desk) are associated with a lower risk of OSA. This may be linked because the reduction of risk exercise can create for other severe conditions like heart disease and diabetes.


Along with exercise, a luxury mattress can help you sleep better. If you need a new bed, check out our Labor Day Sales Event. From now until September 20, you can receive a free Heaven Topper with the purchase of a Vispring Luxe Collection mattress. The Heaven toppers, available in three versions, are a great sleeping companion with Vispring mattresses. Filled with British fleece wool and soft needled wool, these toppers provide a comfortable sleeping experience you will feel throughout the day. Sleep better with a Vispring.

Physical Activity May Help With Poor Sleep

Posted August 17th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands, Uncategorized, ViSpring mattresses by Jorge Lopez

Many factors could cause you to have a poor night of rest, and a lack of physical activity may be one of them. A study done by WebMD showed that in a group of middle-aged adults in the United States (the study investigated nearly 400,000) done over eleven years showed that those with poor sleep and low levels of physical activity had a 57% greater risk for all-cause mortality, a 67% greater chance for cardiovascular disease, a 45% increase in the chance for death from cancer, and a 91% greater risk for death from lung cancer when compared to those who had a good sleep and physical activity.


That is not to say that every person with poor sleeping habits will experience these same results, but it does show that sleep is one of the most crucial forms of care we can give to our bodies. That, coupled with the recommended amount of exercise/physical activity, allows our bodies to be healthy and fight off illness. Physical activity and sleep quality independently impact an individual’s health outcomes, but they influence health conditions in a related manner.


Physical activity keeps our bodies in prime shape, allowing the organs and systems in them to work as best as they can. This helps fight off infection, illness, and chronic diseases down the road. Quality sleep ensures that your body is resting up as it should, so it has the energy to get physical activity and keep itself working all day and night correctly.


It’s easy to incorporate physical activity into your daily life – start by going on a brisk walk every day, then take it up a notch by adding in your favorite activity a few times a week, like cycling or jogging. To get better sleep, make sure your sleep environment provides you the opportunity for a good rest. That includes what kind of mattress you have. A horsehair mattress such as Hästens or Vispring mattress can help you achieve your sleep goals and leave you feeling more rested in the morning.
