Too Much Sleep Isn’t Good for You Either

Posted October 22nd, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Here’s some news that may not be all that surprising. Researchers have found that sleeping too much is nearly as bad as not sleeping enough, negatively affecting cognitive abilities and a person’s health. Last year, the University of Western Ontario conducted a massive sleep study involving more than 40,000 people around the world to determine how a lack of or too much sleep affects them.

After examining data involving over 100,000 nights of sleep, researchers discovered that indeed, a minimum of seven hours each night is ideal for the best sleep, optimum brain function, and a healthy body. On the other hand, the ones who slept more than seven or eight hours experienced the same impairments as those that were only getting six hours of sleep or fewer. One could argue that this also serves as a reminder that there is no such thing as being able to “make up” on sleep. Sleeping only six hours during the week and then trying to make up for it during the weekend by sleeping eight or more may not be making much of a difference.

One way you can easily prevent oversleeping is by tossing and turning less and falling asleep right away. With a Hästens or Vispring mattress, that goal is much easier to accomplish. Thanks to their distinct, intricate design, these beds conform to the shape of the body and provide optimum back support, adjusting accordingly so there is no soreness or moving around trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in. There is a reason why these beds have earned worldwide praise, why not improve your sleep today by trying one of these mattresses?

Relief from Lower Back Pain

Posted September 25th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

If you ever had trouble sleeping at night and have been suffering from it for years, you might have lower back pain. You may have considered surgery, however the risks with surgery can be daunting, With open back surgery you may be hospitalized followed by a long period of recovery time.

Other spine conditions like arthritis, and herniated discs are more painful because they put more pressure on spinal nerves causing both local and traveling symptoms. To relieve the pain, surgery may be done that accesses the location of the nerve compression. This is done with less than an inch of a incision to remove what is causing the compression on the nerve.

Minimally invasive spine surgery usually treats conditions like lower back pain, Facet disease, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. To help relieve your back pain look at the different mattresses that Bickell Mattress has to offer like Hastens, Vispring, Carpe Diem, and more.

A Quality Bed Means a Better Night’s Sleep

Posted September 12th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When you’re reading tips and articles on improving your sleep quality or falling asleep faster, there are some common suggestions that are frequently shared. For example, many of them will tell you to refrain from using your smartphone because of the light it emits. Others will suggest making sure that the room you’re sleeping in as dark as possible.

An important aspect that often gets overlooked yet is arguably just as important is the quality of your bed. Besides being comfortable, it’s also important to make sure that the bed you sleep on is supportive without being too hard or soft. A quality mattress will provide just enough firmness to make sure that your spine remains aligned while contouring to your unique body shape.

With that in mind, it’s just as important to make sure you aren’t sleeping on a mattress that’s too old. Eventually, the mattress will begin to lose back support, resulting in poor sleep posture and therefore a poor night’s sleep. If you find yourself waking up with aches and pains despite sleeping eight hours, it could be that your mattress is not doing what it’s supposed to be doing.

Thanks to names like Vispring and Hästens, there is no need to worry about the quality of your mattress. These manufacturers have developed sterling reputations for their meticulously designed mattresses that provide optimum support and lull you to sleep within minutes. If you want to practically guarantee yourself a better night’s sleep, we have the answer.

Sleep Deprivation May Have Serious Health Risks

Posted September 5th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Why is it that when it’s bedtime, the brain seemingly decides it’s the perfect time to start throwing various worries your way? If you find this is a chronic situation that is causing sleep deprivation, you may wish to evaluate how it is affecting your health…namely your heart health.

Some recent studies brought up at a European Study of Cardiology meeting revealed that getting too little or even too much sleep may be linked to an increase in the risk of developing cardiovascular problems, including strokes, hardening of the arteries, a heart attack, and more. Eleven different studies with over a million participants were used to determine that besides eating well and living an active lifestyle, it is vital to prioritize sleep.

Although it’s typically recommended to sleep about seven to nine hours, authors of the sleep studies suggested six to eight hours is essential to reduce the chances of cardiac disease. Failing to get at least six hours increases the chances of coronary heart disease by just over ten percent. Worse, sleeping too much increased the risk by over thirty percent.

While these studies only suggest a link, they do reinforce the need of getting a good night’s sleep. Part of that means actually falling asleep when it’s bedtime. We can certainly help with that by introducing to the incredible sleep experiences provided by mattress brands like Hästens and Vispring. Curious? Visit our store and we’ll be happy to have you try one of these incredible mattresses.

The Importance of Sleeping Through the Night

Posted August 27th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For many people, they may fall asleep at a decent time only to wake up several times during the night, resulting in something called fragmented sleep. If the side effects of insufficient sleep weren’t bad enough, recent research once again reinforces how it can contribute to heart disease.

A recent PESA study showed that individuals who slept fewer than six hours a night or woke up several times during the night showed an increased risk of what’s called asymptomatic atherosclerosis, which is the scientific named for the hardening and narrowing of the arteries. Most people are aware that hardening and narrowing of the arteries is a major contributor to heart disease.

The study involved nearly 4,000 middle-aged individuals in good health who were monitored for seven days while their sleep quality was recorded. Several health factors were taken into account such as their physical activity as well as their stress levels, possible depression, or sleep apnea risk.

Even if you get around seven to eight hours of sleep every night, interrupted sleep can still cause you to feel tired and as if you barely slept during the night. That’s why mattresses like those by Hästens and Vispring are made to help you fall asleep faster and perhaps more importantly, stay asleep. With their distinct design, they are both extremely comfortable and they conform to your body so there is little to no tossing and turning during the night.

How Athletes Prioritize Sleep for Their Health

Posted August 1st, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Athletes are always focused on their bodies – how they can improve their strength, their speed, or their health. The world’s top athletes also focus on sleep, because sleeping has more effects on your health than you’d think.

It’s believed NBA legend LeBron James often aims for twelve hours of sleep a night, and tennis star Roger Federer sleeps for about ten to twelve hours. Clearly they know the importance of sleep. During sleep, your body cleans itself of toxins. Not getting enough sleep can increase your risk of heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. If you’re sleep deprived, you can’t make good decisions or multitask well.

There’s a lot you can do to sleep better. For example, keep away from your phone at night. The light from the screen will suppress melatonin, a hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. You should also stay away from caffeinated beverages before sleeping.

You should do everything you can to get a good night’s sleep. Pro athletes do, so you should too. A mattress by Hästens or names like Vispring will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep, potentially preventing the effects of a sleep disorder such as insomnia.

What’s Making You Feel Tired?

Posted July 19th, 2018 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

During the day, you may run into a scenario where you’re feeling tired despite having slept a decent amount of hours the night before. Even if you get seven hours or so a night, the quantity of your sleep may not be positively affecting the quality. What’s going on? Let’s explore some possible factors.

You’re not sticking to a sleep schedule. It’s been said time and time again and it remains true: it’s important to go to bed and wake up around the same time each night, even on weekends. In fact, it’s arguably more important than getting seven hours of sleep or more. Your brain has a thing for consistency, which means your circadian rhythms will work together in harmony if you stick to a schedule.

You’re pumping iron too late. With so many responsibilities to take care of each day, it’s not always easy to work out in the morning or afternoon. While exercising certainly helps with falling asleep, doing it close to bedtime may prevent the release of melatonin which helps to induce sleep. Always try and work out early if time allows.

You may have an undiagnosed sleep disorder. A sleep disorder such as insomnia can affect millions of people yet they are unaware they are suffering from it. If you think that’s the case, consult a healthcare professional and also take a look at the type of mattress you’re sleeping on.

Hästens Is ICONIC

Posted July 16th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

37337310_839930532872447_6879609285370707968_nIn an industry such as mattresses where there are so many competitors aiming to perfect the science of sleep, the industry has evolved from a series of salespeople selling well-known brands to several lesser-known names catering to consumers looking for mattresses that are environmentally friendly, modern, and can genuinely help a person get a better night’s sleep.

This topic was one of the talking points in an article published earlier this year in ICONIC Magazine which covers design, food, travel, and style. Titled “Smarter Sleep is a Wink Away”, one of the brands covered in the article is Hästens which ICONIC recommends as the mattress readers should purchase “if money is no object”. One of the mattresses specifically mentioned is the article is the widely acclaimed Hästens Vividus which the article says is “the closest thing to a haute couture mattress you can get”.

If you’re curious to try a Hästens bed, visit the Brickell Mattress store today and see why you’ll never sleep the same way again once you’ve tried a Hästens mattress.
