Sleep Deprivation Really Does Mess with Your Emotions

Posted April 15th, 2019 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Have you woken up the next day in a foul mood due to a sleepless night? You’re not alone. The brain tends to react in not so pleasant ways to sleep deprivation, including affecting reaction times and perception or even making you more antisocial.

A researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden set out to see how sleep loss can affect us emotionally. Based on several different studies, it was found that people suffering from sleep loss developed something called “negativity bias”, a negative response to emotional stimuli. What’s more, it became harder to regulate their own emotions.

Essentially, sleep deprivation has the potential to turn you into a very unpleasant person. Among the reasons for being sleep deprived, having a less than pleasant mattress is one of them. If you’re not getting those all important hours of sleep, perhaps a Vispring or Hastens bed might be able to turn your sleep deprived frown upside down. Visit us at Brickell Mattress and we’ll help you achieve a better night’s sleep.

The Vispring Regal Superb is a sumptuously comfortable bed for couples that are seeking a high-end mattress at a competitive price.

All Vispring mattresses including the Regal Superb are made by hand with a custom coil gauge, and the Vispring Regal Superb has the distinction of being the first to feature horsetail in its comfort layers.

Besides the horsetail hair, the Vispring Regal Superb also boasts other natural materials like Shetland wool and bonded Platinum Certified British fleece wool and cotton.

Finally, the bonded Platinum Certified British fleece wool and cotton layer create a comfortable fusion of durability and softness.
A major feature of the Vispring Regal Superb is its custom coil system which is tailored specifically to your unique body type and sleep preferences. These coils are arranged in a honeycomb pattern to create minimal gaps for greater consistency and comfort.

Should You Take That Afternoon Nap?

Posted April 10th, 2019 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

Chances are there has been more than one occasion where you’ve felt yourself dozing off at work or school. While this could be due to a sleep disorder or poor health, one way to combat sleepiness or sluggishness is to take a nap.

Depending on who you ask, you may be told that taking a nap during the day is not a good idea because it will ruin your sleep for the evening. Then again, there are those that suggest a quick nap will do the body good. Who are you to believe?

The business news website Quartzy asked several sleep experts whether it’s wise to sleep during the day and the consensus is yes, a daytime nap will do you some good provided you nap the right way.

A nap can increase alertness as well as improve mental performance. Furthermore, a nap may also help with lowering blood pressure. The key is to limit your nap to no more than thirty minutes. Anything more than that and you’re running the risk of going into deep sleep. If you wake up during this sleep stage, you’ll feel worse.

Even if you aren’t feeling exceptionally tired, a nap will do the body good. While you won’t always have a mattress like Hastens or Vispring around, these brands will help you enjoy a more restful nap thanks to their optimum comfort. When you wake up, you’re ready to face whatever the rest of the day throws at you.

A Cashmere Sleep Awaits on the Vispring Signatory

Posted April 4th, 2019 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

The best way to describe the sleep experience of the Vispring Signatory bed is by highlighting the hand-selected materials found inside the meticulously handcrafted mattress: cashmere, Shetland Isle wool, and hand-teased long-stranded horsehair. Collectively, these materials make the Signatory one of the most comfortable and genuinely restful beds money can buy. The bed includes a dual-layered vanadium wire innerspring support system comprised of springs that are a mere 1.97 inches in diameter, which means the larger number of individual springs results in better body support and comfort.

In keeping with Vispring’s focus on handmade beds, the 9.1-inch deep border is reinforced with 4 rows of hand-stitching on each side. Each side of the Signatory features air vents so air circulates and the body remains cool on warm days. These handmade borders are upholstered with all-natural coir and wool and they also feature piped ticking for even more sumptuous softness.

The Signatory has the honor of being the first Vispring luxury bed to include a full layer of premium cashmere. This material was once used solely by noble royalty, but today the cashmere adds a dash of elegant softness that simply isn’t found in other luxury beds.

The Ever Worsening Effects of Sleep Deprivation

Posted April 3rd, 2019 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

 

The general rule of thumb is to get at least seven hours of sleep each night, which most people don’t. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than thirty percent don’t get the amount of sleep they need.

Per the CDC, a person shouldn’t remain awake for more than seventeen hours, or they’ll begin to experience some of the effects of sleep deprivation. While sleep requirements do vary among each individual, sleep deprivation may cause short term symptoms such as fatigue, an impaired ability to concentrate, moodiness, and irritability. It can also lead to obesity, diabetes, and even heart disease.

While sleep deprivation has many negative effects, in some cases it can even prove fatal. A rare sleep disorder known as fatal familial insomnia (FFI) results in a condition where the region of the brain responsible for regulating sleep is affected, resulting in symptoms like weight loss, dementia, and, eventually, death within a year or so.

The longer a person a remains sleep deprived, the more severe the symptoms become. Muscle tension and increased levels of blood sugar can happen during 24 hours of sleep deprivation and they continue to get worse. Brain unconsciousness (48 hours), paranoia (72 hours), these only reinforce the need to get to bed on time.
If it’s your mattress that is taking away precious minutes from your sleep cycle, we encourage you to visit Brickell Mattress to try one of the premium mattresses by brands like Hastens that have developed worldwide acclaim for their incredible comfort.

London Hotel Uses Hastens Mattresses

Posted March 26th, 2019 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Earlier this month, the world observed World Sleep Day (WSD), the yearly celebration reinforcing the importance of sleep while raising awareness of the various sleep issues many people deal with. To recognize WSD, the UK edition of the popular international fashion magazine Cosmopolitan published a story featuring “12 of the most jaw-dropping hotel beds that you will never want to leave”. As you might guess, one of these beds happened to be a familiar name.

Sure enough, one of the twelve beds featured is the Swedish bed maker Hastens. The Eccleston Square Hotel located in London is a Georgian townhouse where each room comes with the luxury of sleeping on a high-tech Hastens bed. These beds have adjustable settings and they can even provide a relaxing massage.

You won’t have to travel all the way to London if you’re curious to experience the restorative effects of sleeping on a Hastens bed. Visit Brickell Mattress and you’ll notice how comfortable these handmade beds are virtually instantly.

Have You Considered a Custom Size Mattress?

Posted March 20th, 2019 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Queen, king, full, these are common mattress sizes that countless numbers of people have chosen to sleep on. However, most people would agree that a custom solution is always better than a “one size fits all” approach. Considering mattresses are one of the most commonly used items we spend hours on each night, there are several reasons why you may wish to go with a custom mattress.

When it comes to sleeping habits and preferences, partners often differ in their likes. Some like a soft bed while others prefer something that offers a greater level of firmness. A traditional mattress simply won’t offer the best of both worlds, while a custom mattress can be made to your specifications, including varying levels of firmness.

Another aspect of ourselves that we all differ in is height. There are people who may be exceptionally tall or very short. A queen, king, or full size won’t offer the convenience and comfort of a custom size such as extra large or extra small. Maybe you need a round-shaped bed to create a unique look for the bedroom. Again, a custom size mattress is one that has been specifically tailored to the person who will be sleeping in the bed versus one that was made to appeal to as many people as possible.

If you have custom mattress needs, contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss your options and tell you more about brands like Hastens and Vispring.

Sleep Deprivation May Be Akin to Being Drunk

Posted March 18th, 2019 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

One of the most difficult parts of parenthood is the beginning when babies fail to sleep through the night and it can take hours to get them to fall back asleep. The sleep deprivation caused can go as far as causing hallucinations. In fact, a 2018 study suggests that 24 to 48 hours of sleep loss will cause the brain to become essentially “drunk”.

Sleep deprivation is expected when parents have a newborn as they grapple with learning how to take care of the child and his or her unique needs. However, when there is the window of opportunity to get some sleep, it’s imperative to concentrate solely on getting some sleep, especially if the sleep deprivation is severe enough that it’s resulting in hallucinations.

Could your mattress also be contributing toward poor sleep? Maybe you can’t seem to find the right comfortable position or the mattress is leaving you feeling achy. We encourage you to take some time out of your schedule to visit us at Brickell Mattress and we’ll find you mattress by names like Hastens and Vispring that will help you stay asleep so you can take advantage of those few hours of sleep as you focus on parenthood.

Not Feeling Very Charitable? You May Be Sleep Deprived

Posted March 13th, 2019 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Being sleep deprived can lead to a number of negative outcomes, grouchiness being one of them. You’ve probably dealt with someone who was in a foul mood due to not getting enough sleep, but can sleep deprivation also affect your day to day life as a citizen? A recent study in Nature Human Behavior seems to think so.

The study suggests that sleeping less may reduce our tendencies to be prosocial. This means a person becomes less inclined to donate to charitable causes, sign petitions for things they believe in, or even vote. The in-depth study uses time zones and a bunch of other research to determine how sleep deprivation may affect such a thing as the inclination to go out and perform one’s civic duty.

The article also briefly mentions some previous work regarding how tired people are not as likely to make the healthiest of choices when it comes to their lifestyle.

One of the primary causes of sleep deprivation aside from going to bed late is sleeping in a mattress that may not be comfortable, resulting in lots of tossing and turning. If you think your mattress is what’s causing you to feel grouchy, sleep deprived, or in this case, less inclined to be charitable, visit us at Brickell Mattress to try some of the world’s most comfortable beds by Vispring and Hastens.
