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.

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.

The Hästens Maranga Is Sleep Bliss

Posted June 10th, 2020 in Hastens, Hästens Maranga, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses by Jorge Lopez

The intriguingly dubbed Hästens Maranga (“wake up” in the Maori language) is akin to sleeping on a series of clouds, resulting in a feeling that one would probably say is close to sleep nirvana. With such lofty qualities, when it comes to the softness, firmness, and pliability of this marvelously comfortable mattress, Hästens has raised the bar exceptionally high.

Upon resting on the Hästens Maranga you will be enveloped by a terrific sense of serenity. The bed epitomizes pliability in response. Unwind as the bed hugs gently while “sinking” into it at just the right level and then watch as the bed rises again once it’s time to get up. No one will ever suspect that, due to the excellent responsiveness of the bed, you only slept in it. Recreate this fantastic feeling on the Maranga every night that you go to bed.

Using the finest all-natural materials like horsetail hair, wool, cotton, and flax, the handcrafted Hästens Maranga creates a maximum relaxing sleep each and every night. Utilizing a technique that has been finely tuned for centuries, the Maranga’s individual layers are meticulously assembled by hand by some of the world’s finest artisans.

Sleep However You Like with the Hästens Lenoria

Posted June 3rd, 2020 in Hastens, Hästens Lenoria, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses by Jorge Lopez

Most mattress designs mean that you’re forced to lay flat when there may be instances where you wish to sit up. The Hästens Lenoria is a state-of-the-art, adjustable bed that offers the matchless comfort that Hästens is known for plus the option of raising the bed to fit various sleeping positions. A unification of handmade art and precise engineering, it’s certainly the ultimate sleeping experience for lazy days when staying in bed sounds like a productive use of your time.

Not only is the Hästens Lenoria adjustable, but it also boasts state-of-the-art technology features such as Bluetooth which makes it easy to change the bed using your smartphone or tablet if you don’t use the included device. Even with so much modernism packed into the bed, you’re only going to find all-natural materials such as horsetail hair, flax, wool, and cotton to create a maximally comfortable, superbly soft sleeping experience where moving around won’t affect your partner, no matter how many times you change positions.

The Hästens Lenoria has a special lateral sliding motion that allows it to maintain a distance as it moves between the wall and bed.

Like most Hästens mattresses, you can adjust the Lenoria to your needs without compromising its efficiency or exceptional comfort.

Firmly Restful Sleep with the Hästens Excel

Few feelings are as euphoric as waking up feeling genuinely rested with energy to seize the day. The handmade Hästens Excel does an exceptional job of creating such feelings and it features a solid pine frame, a double spring system in addition to several layers of precisely assembled all-natural horsetail hair, wool, cotton, and flax to create a bed that will last you a lifetime. Whenever nap time arrives for a quick energy recharge, lose yourself in the Excel’s soft embracement.

The Excel is flexible and pliable yet it differentiates itself by offering more firmness. It perfectly balances the feeling of support without overdoing firmness, ensuring a comfortable feeling where you sleep soundly on the bed versus in it. As all Hästens beds, thanks to the special combination of natural materials engineered for optimal air circulation, you will still sleep at the right temperature.

The Hästens Excel’s spring systems and wooden frame are both embedded in flax which prevents components from rubbing against one another. This means the bed makes little noise should you move around and it doesn’t allow static electricity to build up, creating an even more restful sleep.

Having a Bedtime May Reduce the Chances of Cardiovascular Disease

Children often have bedtimes to help them maintain a regular sleep schedule, but should adults have them, too? Some research published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology seems to suggest so. The study found adults with a sleep schedule deemed to be irregular had close to double the risk of cardiovascular disease development versus those that stuck to a schedule.

More than 1,500 men and women between the ages of 45 to 84 that were cardiovascular disease-free were evaluated over five years. Indeed, those that had the greatest irregularity in sleep patterns saw their risk of stroke, heart attack, and even death increase twice as much versus the participants that maintained a regular sleep pattern.

The research is yet another reminder of why it is so important to take sleep seriously. If it’s your mattress that’s keeping you up at night, a Hästens or Vispring bed may be the solution.

Hästens Eala Is like Waking on a Serene Tropical Island

Posted May 7th, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens Eala by Jorge Lopez

If someone were to say to you, “E Ala Ē”, that person would likely be attempting to gently wake you up in Hawaiian. When you have felt the warmth of a Hästens Eala, the explanation as to why the Swedish designer picked the name of the bed is readily understood. You’re going to feel beautifully refreshed as if you’ve just been revived from a peaceful rest on a small tropical island.

How does the Hästens Eala reach the ideal temperature for a great rest? The use of all-natural horsetail fur, wool, cotton, and flax that are packed and carefully crafted by hand collectively keeps you cool throughout the night. Such materials are then bundled in a blue-check cotton cloth of more than twenty square meters, spun with a technique that Hästens artisans have worked to master for decades.

Like for all Hästens beds, the Eala is specially built to make sure you stay comfortable and dry all night long. Horsetail fur, wool, and flax wick away moisture from the body, which is then expelled from the bedside. When this is happening, any fiber that surrounds the body softly circulates in the fresh air.

The Sleep Doctor Joins Forces With Hästens

Posted April 13th, 2020 in Hastens by Jorge Lopez

Are you familiar with the name Michael Breus? The man has earned a reputation for being one of the leading authorities on the science of sleep, becoming known as the sleep doctor. He recently joined forces with Swedish mattress maker Hästens and revealed some news that may surprise you when it comes to how many hours you should sleep.

You’ve likely read or heard that getting eight hours of sleep each night is the ideal number for the body and mind. However, Hästens and the sleep doctor are seemingly begging to differ. Instead, the two have concluded that it isn’t so much getting the eight hours as it is concentrating on sleeping with the right equipment and the right ambiance. In other words, that means sleeping on the right mattress, the right pillows, basically making sure that your entire sleep system is doing its job.

Hästens’ luxurious handmade beds will reinforce and soothe your sleep for those deprived of a good night’s slumber, cradling you until you’ve dozed off with less tossing and turning.
