Poor REM Sleep Has Serious Consequences

There is resting and then there is sleeping. The latter is what would be called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the deepest state of sleep where the mind resets and processes memories while the body rests and re-energizes. According to some new research, failing to get enough REM sleep may go as far as an increased risk of death due to several different diseases.

The study involved over 3,000 men and women whose sleep patterns were closely monitored. Some of these participants were also dealing with a sleep disorder. For just five percent loss of sleep, the risk of cardiovascular issues as well as the risk of death increasing by more than twelve percent.

One way to train the body into sleeping better and deeper is to create a healthy sleep environment. This means sleeping a cool bedroom free of light sources such as smartphones and making sure you aren’t drinking alcohol or consuming spicy foods just before bedtime.

Remember that your bed is also a major factor in your sleep quality. If you’re tossing and turning constantly, the body will be unable to enter or remain in the REM sleep stage.

More Ties Between RLS and Restless Nights

Posted July 1st, 2020 in Brickell Mattress by Jorge Lopez

RLS or restless leg syndrome is a condition characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, especially during the evening. Symptoms include the intense feeling of pins and needles on the leg, leg aches, or recurring itch, tingling sensation, and the urge to move one’s legs around. This condition is usually seen in more women than men. It typically occurs while laying down or sitting and can disrupt one’s sleep, leaving you feeling exhausted the following day. When one’s sleep is compromised, your overall health is prone to suffering as well.

 

 It may surprise most to know that RLS is considered a sleep disorder, but due to the nature of the condition, it has a huge impact on one’s sleeping habits. Those with RLS will encounter difficulty falling asleep and it may cause multiple awakenings throughout the night, affect the quality of sleep. Studies show severe cases of restless leg syndrome get 5 hours or less of sleep each night which can be detrimental to one’s health.

 

 Did you know exercise has been proven to help one get better rest at night? Aerobic exercise and lower body resistance training has been demonstrated to alleviate symptoms of restless leg syndrome. Exercising 30 minutes a day, not too close to bedtime is a great way to improve your sleep. Those with RLS may want to consider sleeping with a pillow between the legs. This will prevent the nerves in your legs from compressing fewer times throughout the night.

Sleeping in on Weekends Isn’t Relieving Sleep Debt

Posted July 1st, 2020 in mattress collection, Sleep, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Are you one of those people that only get about six hours of sleep on weekdays but then attempt to “make up” for it by sleeping in on weekends? If so, there is some bad news to report. French researchers say catching up on sleep during the weekend does not work. The research involved over 10,000 participants deemed “short sleepers” who only slept six hours a night or less. That is considerably less than the recommended seven to eight hours most people need to feel well-rested.

Some of the causes behind the large accumulation of sleep debt include working night shifts, long commutes, and being too attached to technology like smartphones. Should sleep debt continue to increase, the risk of developing health issues like depression, obesity, and even heart disease or diabetes may increase.

If you’re curious about ways to relieve your sleep debt, one thing to look at is the mattress you’re sleeping on. Even if you’re going to bed at a normal time each night, a mattress that isn’t supportive will result in tossing and turning, contributing to poor sleep. If possible, try and get into the habit of going to bed when you feel tired and waking when rested for at least two weeks to take care of your sleep debt.

Co-Sleeping May Mean a Better Night’s Rest

Posted June 25th, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For those that sleep in a bed with a partner or spouse, finding a bed that supports both people comfortably is important. According to a recent study, snuggling with your significant other may also improve your sleep by boosting the REM stage.

REM is the acronym for rapid eye movement. It is the stage of deepest rest where the brain and body work together to consolidate memories, deal with issues, and tackle the regulation of emotions. During this stage, you’re much more likely to experience a dream. The study found that couples sleeping together experienced this stage for a longer period with fewer disruptions versus those that slept alone.

Couple sleeping together also have in sync sleep patterns, the study found, which researchers believe may be a sign of satisfaction and profundity in relationships. According to the study, the higher the participants rated the importance of their relationship to their lives, the stronger the synchronicity of sleep was with their partner.

Should you need a supportive bed for you and your partner, visit us at Brickell Mattress today.

A Quick Primer on Insomnia

The sleep disorder insomnia can be broken down into a pair of types: chronic and acute. The former refers to insomnia that sticks around for more than three straight months while the latter is short-term and doesn’t last beyond three months. It’s the chronic type that affects close to ten percent of adults in the United States, potentially contributing to health issues like high blood pressure.

Besides being unable to fall asleep, other common symptoms of insomnia include difficulty remaining focused, feeling irritable, headaches, and having less energy or inclination to do anything. As for the cause, it could be due to a health condition such as sleep apnea (secondary insomnia) or it may be that you have a body and mind that’s far too alert. Even an expectation that you’re going to be sleeping poorly may contribute to experiencing insomnia.

Besides stress, light exposure, or consuming caffeine too close to bedtime, an uncomfortable bed is one of the factors that can also increase the chances of insomnia. Drop by Brickell Mattress and we can discuss finding a mattress that suits and supports you.

Science Reveals More Ties Between Poor Sleep and Heart Disease

Posted June 9th, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Atherosclerosis is the name given to a cardiovascular disease where fatty plaque builds up in the inner walls of the arteries. The disease may increase the chances of experiencing a heart attack and one of the ways that it can build up is through ongoing poor sleep.

According to research published in the PLOS Biology journal, more than 1,500 adults in their middle age and beyond were evaluated. After evaluating factors such as sleep quality, the results showed that disrupted sleep patterns led to larger concentrations of neutrophils and monotypes, a pair of white blood cell types that play pivotal roles in the development of atherosclerosis.

Are you finding yourself tossing and turning too much? Your mattress could be what’s causing you to experience poor sleep. We carry some of the world’s most comfortable and supportive mattresses and we want you to help you sleep better.

Getting Some Sleep in Precarious Times

Posted June 2nd, 2020 in mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Anxiety and stress are two major contributors to experiencing sleep disorders like insomnia. With the seemingly constant influx of bad news, you may find falling or staying asleep to be difficult as the mind races and processes what’s going on and anxiety triggers are near-constant.

While anxiety contributes heavily to poor sleep, other underlying reasons may be affecting sleep quality. Depression, for example, is synonymous with sleep problems. If you’re feeling constantly tired or angry, it may be worth consulting professional help to assist with getting to the root of what’s causing the issues.

Exercise one way to tackle sleep issues, but with most fitness centers remaining closed you may have to seek online fitness classes. If that’s not feasible, anything that helps the body to become active and move can help with improving sleep.

If exercise, anxiety management, schedule resetting isn’t helping, it’s time to take a look at sleep hygiene. If you can’t fall asleep, don’t remain in bed. Leave the bedroom, sit somewhere else, and do something relaxing. Don’t force yourself to become sleepy.
