Hästens Presents a New Bed in Celebration of Its 170th Anniversary

Posted May 18th, 2022 in Hästens mattress, luxury mattress by coreyconsulting

Dubbed the “drēmər” by the family-owned Swedish company, the exclusive new model was inspired by the power of the human mind and the infinite possibilities of manifestation. The drēmər is a tribute to Hästens founder Pehr Adolf Janson and the six generations of “dreamers” who helped establish the company as a luxury brand.

The drēmər was designed by the world-renowned interior designer Ferris Rafauli, who also designed the Grand Vividus model. The luxurious bed, like its predecessors, took more than 300 hours to create in the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Köping, Sweden.

Meanwhile, the bed’s foundation is made of the company’s signature blend of cotton, wool, flax, and horsehair. The latter was chosen because it provides natural airflow to keep you cool while you sleep. Rafauli also employed polished leather and metal, both of which are common in saddle construction.

Rafauli outfitted the bed with a signature woven checkerboard cloth based on the brand’s horse monogram, paying tribute to Hästens’ past as expert saddle builders. It’s similar to the fabric used on the Grand Vividus and comes in the same four colors (Traditional Blue, Black Shadow, Natural Shale and Phantom Charcoal). The wonderfully handcrafted velvet headboard, which comes complete with elaborate piping and a striking color to accent the checkered fabric, is what sets the drēmər apart from the Grand Vividus and others. The bed also features a set of elegant lacquered wood legs available in black and blue that were made particularly for the drēmər.

The drēmər, like other Hästens mattresses, may be tailored to fit your body composition, temperature preferences, and firmness preferences. It comes in all of the regular sizes, but it can also be customized to your desired length and width. To top it off, the mattress can be serviced by one of the brand’s unique “bed massagers” as needed to keep it in peak condition.

Wake Up Feeling Younger with Hastens

Wake Up Feeling Younger with Hastens

Do you ever wake up and feel older than you really are? In recent studies, a bad night’s sleep has been linked to having a bad attitude about aging, like feeling old. According to experts, not only does poor sleep make you feel more pessimistic about aging, but it can also harm your health.


Sleep deprivation can have a negative impact on your physical, mental and cognitive health. Researchers discovered that people who rated their sleep the worst felt older. Participants in the two year long study also had the impression that they were rapidly aging. This is thought to be because Sleep deprivation causes the brain’s amygdala and prefrontal cortex to become less connected. These areas are in charge of regulating our impulses and digesting relevant data. Sleep-deprived people, for example, suffer gaps in focus, make poor decisions, engage in unethical behavior and struggle to control negative emotions. In general, those who do not get enough sleep have a harder time processing information.


However, experts also point out that correcting sleep issues may improve people’s aging experiences. A good night’s sleep lays the groundwork for a better day, as you feel more alert and energized. A Hastens mattress offers the ideal combination of comfort and support, as well as breathability and the capacity to regulate your body temperature as you sleep. Each natural substance has distinct advantages, and when combined, they contribute to a restful night’s sleep.

The Benefits of Sharing a Bed with Your Valentine

Posted February 14th, 2022 in Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses by coreyconsulting

The Benefits of Sharing a Bed with Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day is commonly associated with flowers, chocolates and shiny things. Yet, it’s often said the greatest gift is a great night’s sleep. So what’s the best gift for your valentine?


Well, according to sleep experts, new research shows sleeping with a partner can improve one’s overall well-being. Besides the obvious reasons of comfort and safety, sharing a bed with someone has a positive chemical reaction, too. Sleeping next to someone releases dopamine and serotonin, which can be converted into melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that makes a person feel sleepy, and in turn influences sleeping and waking periods. In a sense, this biological clock is responsible for booking one’s sleep every night. Checking them in and out so that they can take full advantage of all the benefits sleep has to offer.


Above the skin and under the sheets, sleeping with a partner can also strengthen a couple’s relationship. A better night’s sleep is key to long-term physical health and emotional wellness. A great night’s sleep calms anxiety and relieves stress, benefitting the relationship of those who share a bed. A well-rested couple is a happier couple, and when a bed is shared with a partner, levels of happiness improve.


This Valentine’s day, perhaps the greatest gift you can give your partner is yourself, though chocolates can never hurt, too.

Sleeping isn’t the only thing better together. This Friday February 11, through Monday February 14, Hastens mattresses invites you to a Valentine’s Day experience. Enjoy a glass of red wine with a bite of chocolate, before getting into bed with your Valentine.

The Health Benefits of Napping

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

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.

What Exactly Happens When You Sleep?

There is nothing quite like laying your head down on the pillow at night, feeling yourself drift off into another cozy night of rest. It is even better when you wake up feeling renewed and ready for the day. Sleep is an essential part of the human experience but remains quite a mystery when it comes to health science.


Here is what we know for sure:


Within minutes of falling asleep, there are significant changes in both the brain and body. Your body temperature drops, brain activity slows, along with your heart rate and respiration. Sleep scientists have narrowed down the four stages of sleeping, each lasting anywhere from 70 to 120 minutes.


In the first stage, which occurs in the first five minutes after falling asleep, all body systems are impacted by a good night’s sleep on comfortable mattresses, then transitioning into stage two, where similar things occur, but at a higher rate. It is easier to wake up at this time.


The third stage is where your body is relaxed, and the brain has the slowest activity. The third stage is the deepest part of non-REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Deep sleep is a key part of repairing the body and assists with memory. The final stage is the only stage of REM sleep, where your brain picks up activity, and most of the body goes through temporary paralysis, except your eyes and muscles used for breathing. This is where dreams usually happen.


Most people spend most of their sleeping time in REM, occurring more often in the later parts of the night. Each person will experience all four stages, but how long they stay in them and what changes in the body occur will depend on external factors such as activity levels and sleeping environment.


Looking for a better night of rest? Hastens mattresses are designed specifically to help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night. Try out the Hastens experience at Brickell Mattress, located in the heart of Miami on Calle Ocho.

Poor Sleep May Derail Your Weight Loss Goals

Are you among the millions of people who resolved to lose weight in 2021? If you’re finding that your weight loss efforts aren’t going as planned, you may want to pay closer attention to your sleep habits. A lack of sleep may up your risk of health conditions like obesity.

While eight hours of sleep is considered ideal, at least seven is recommended to keep the body and mind running smoothly. If you’re sleeping for fewer hours, your risk of gaining weight is increased. You may also be more inclined to consume foods that are high in calories as willpower to refrain from consuming such foods is diminished.

Sleep deprivation will also cause the body to produce greater levels of ghrelin and fewer levels of leptin. These are appetite hormones that may increase the chances of overeating.

Remember that even if you are going to sleep at a decent time, too much tossing and turning as a result of an uncomfortable mattress can also contribute to sleep deprivation.
