The Rise of Orthosomnia

Are you among the many people suffering from orthosomnia? If it sounds unfamiliar, no worries. The term is somewhat new to the English lexicon and it describes having an unhealthy fixation with sleep that may cause you to remain awake.

With the proliferation of sleep trackers and apps that claim to help with sleeping better, people are looking to improve their slumber. While these are great, there are people who take the data from sleep trackers a little too seriously, resulting in an obsession to achieve the perfect routine and, therefore, a greater risk of insomnia due to the stress involved in achieving ideal sleep. This obsession has further repercussions, potentially affecting mood and a person’s productivity.

Just like with anything else (i.e.: weight loss), it’s important not to overdo your efforts to sleep better. However, if you aren’t sleeping on a good mattress, that may be a major culprit affecting your sleep quality. We’re here to help you find just the right mattress.

Make 2020 the Year of Better Sleep

Posted December 30th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Here’s a somewhat alarming fact: one in three adults does not get enough sleep, per the CDC. With 2019 coming to an end, it may be a wise idea to consider prioritizing sleep as one of your New Year’s resolutions, along with any other resolutions you may have such as regular exercise or improving your diet.

One way to get started with making better sleep hygiene choices in 2020 is to slowly get into the habit of getting plenty of sunlight during the hours of daylight and then reducing exposure to light as night falls. This means you may need to stop with that evening cup of coffee.

Another way to get better sleep in 2020 is one that you may be familiar with. You’ve probably got a certain schedule of sleep you’re following during the weekdays. Consider sticking to the same routine when you are tempted to go to bed later or sleep in even on weekends. Being consistent is essential to getting the body prepared to where it will wake up naturally.

Devise an electronics-free routine. This means avoiding the temptation to use your mobile or any electronic device a minimum of an hour before going to bed and solely using the bedroom for sleep. Perhaps sprinkle on the sheets some lavender oil or cut down on the brightness of the lights.

Don’t forget to invest a good back support mattress in 2020. You will be better able to stick to your schedule and resolution with names like Hästens and Vispring.

Posted December 20th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Jan Ryde is a name that has become synonymous with the Hästens company. As its executive chairman and owner since the late 1980s, Ryde has continued the Swedish bed company’s tradition of creating some of the world’s most comfortable, all-natural handmade beds. Ever since taking the reins, Hästens has gone to experience tremendous sales.

The Swedish design firm of Bernadotte & Kylberg has become closely tied with Hästens after several collaborations, along with names like British interior designer Ilse Crawford and Swedish fashion designer Lars Nilsson. Furthermore, the Hästens Vividus (a bed which takes 45 days to make) has earned heaps of praise.

New Research Reinforces the Serious Effects of Insomnia

Posted December 11th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

With a sleep disorder like insomnia, its effects are well-known. From making a person more irritable to making it harder to concentrate, it can lead to a host of health issues. Just how bad is it? A recent study published in the online journal Nature and Science of Sleep shows that people suffering from chronic insomnia attempting to pull an all-nighter experienced reaction times twice as bad as those that slept normally.

Though functioning poorly during the daytime is common among insomniacs, previous studies had shown that cognitive performance wasn’t several affected. This new study may suggest that there is indeed significant impairment but it doesn’t fully manifest itself until insomniacs attempt an all-nighter. It also reinforces the need for poor sleepers to try and develop a normal sleep schedule.

If you can’t sleep, it could be your mattress is keeping you awake. Brickell Mattress is ready to help you sleep better.

Stay in New York, Sleep on the Hästens Vividus

Posted November 25th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Part of what makes Hästens beds so unbelievably comfortable is the sheer amount of time-tested artisan craftsmanship that goes into making each bed, which is done by hand. The process takes 300+ hours and results in a supremely comfortable bed and maintains a tradition that’s been going strong since the 1850s.

The Swedish mattress maker is now bringing its beds to the super luxury hotel arena. The Lotte New York Palace recently debuted a series of different Hästens models its guests will be able to sleep on. Among the eight new suites, the “crème de la crème” of these suites is the appropriately named Hästens Ultimate Sleep Suite. Guests staying in this premium suite with two bedrooms will get to sleep on none other than the Hästens Vividus, the finest model currently available from bed maker. The suite also features wraparound windows and plenty of Scandinavian décor to match the luxuriously, ultra-comfortable bed.

If you want to experience the Hästens difference, you don’t necessarily have to travel to New York. Just visit us at Brickell Mattress and you can see the Hästens Vividus in person.

The Masterpiece Superb Lives up to Its Name

Posted November 14th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

The Masterpiece Superb, as its royal name suggests, is sincerely the Vispring luxury bedding collection’s crown jewel. The Masterpiece Superb sits on a pair of 1.93” diameter vanadium wire springs, representing the most carefully designed of all Vispring designs. This design increases the pressure-relieving support per square inch in regards to body weight, providing a sleeping surface that can easily react to movement or weight changes. The Masterpiece also features a fully mixed layer of exotic materials, including cashmere, bamboo, and alpaca, for a level of comfort that is just not comparable.

The Masterpiece Superb features an air-vented, hand-stitched border in addition to the Vanadium Wire Springs to boost air circulation and to better regulate temperature. The upholstered border is comprised of all-natural coir and wool and provides ticking to the already supremely comfortable mattress for extra softness. The genuine Shetland Isle Silk, when it comes to silk, results in a sleeping surface that does not absorb moisture.

Another reason to pick the Masterpiece Superb? For sleep that is as comfortable as it is luxurious, it remains the only bed in the world to come finely enveloped in 100 percent silk. It is a beautiful luxury bed that needs to be witnessed firsthand in order to understand its astounding comfortableness.

Detoxify Your Brain with a Good Night’s Sleep

Posted November 13th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Previously we talked about how sleep serves as a way for your brain to reboot itself daily. As research continues into the correlations between the brain and sleep, it’s becoming increasingly clear how vital sleep is to keep the brain in healthy shape.

A study published in a journal appropriately titled Science examines how the body “detoxifies” the brain during sleep and how this may assist with treating diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. Study participants were asked to sleep inside of an MRI machine. When participants reached a state of non-REM sleep, a clear, water-like liquid known as cerebrospinal fluid would wash over the brain as neurons would “turn off”, clearing it of toxins like beta-amyloid which may contribute to the onset of Alzheimer’s

When a person is awake, neurons will not turn off simultaneously. Therefore, brain blood levels do not drop enough to allow substantial waves of cerebrospinal fluid to circulate the brain and clear all the accumulating metabolic by-products, such as beta-amyloid.

The information above serves as yet another reminder of why it’s imperative to take sleep seriously. To read more about the study, visit https://science.sciencemag.org/content/366/6465/628.

Sleep like Royalty on the Seven Seas Splendor

One way to experience the ultimate vacation is by going all-out on a cruise. The luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers its guests upscale cruising experiences to more than 300 ports around the world on some of the most impressive vessels at sea.

Next year, Regent will debut its latest ship known as the Seven Seas Splendor, offering guests accommodations as large as 4,443 square feet in size with features like a private balcony. The Regent Suite has been generating a ton of hype for its majestic features and the “pièce de résistance” may end up being the bed. Indeed, future guests of the Regent Suite will be sleeping on a $200,000 bed made by Swedish manufacturer Hästens. As with all other Hästens beds, this handmade masterpiece will feature layers of all-natural, carefully assembled cotton, wool, horsetail hair, and more to create a feeling of zero gravity.

Hästens beds are practically unrivaled in their optimum comfort. You don’t need to spend money on a luxury cruise to try one, however. Visit us at Brickell Mattress and you can order your Hästens bed for your home. The difference when you wake up after sleeping on one of these beds is arguably unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

Your Brain Needs a Daily Reboot


As a person becomes more and more sleep-deprived, their brain will start to “misbehave”. Actions will become more sluggish, decision making is harder, and in severe cases, a person’s brain may cause them to start seeing things that aren’t there. Taking care of mental health by getting a good night’s sleep is, therefore, important.

To further illustrate how important sleep is to the brain, recent studies are showing that when a person sleeps, the brain goes through a “reboot” process of sorts. Think of your smartphone. If it starts to become sluggish, restarting it often solves the process. With this re-actualization process of the brain, the brain takes care of updating a person’s memories and “detoxing” the brain so that it’s fresh and better able to take care of things like problem or puzzle solving.
