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.

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.

How COVID-19 Is Affecting Sleep

For many of us, getting enough rest when there isn’t a pandemic going on is already challenging. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 50 million Americans deal with sleep disorders. Combine that with the stress brought on by COVID-19 and it’s easy to see why so many suffer from a troubled sleep.

Stress and anxiety are major contributors to poor sleep and they can lead to things like insomnia. However, there are other factors that may be harming sleep quality. For example, the body’s circadian rhythms are affected by sunlight as well as social interactions. With people being asked to remain indoors as much as possible and social distancing still being enforced, the sleep-wake cycle may be having a difficult time regulating itself or it may be entirely confused.

And then there is the problem of people who may be getting too much sleep, which isn’t healthy, either. Do keep in mind that even with the various factors affecting sleep, if your mattress isn’t supporting you, you may experience poor sleep regardless of whether or not a pandemic exists.

A Good Night’s Sleep May Mean Fewer Exercise Injuries

Posted March 10th, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When you want to work out efficiently, it’s important to make sure you’re getting a good night’s sleep. A recent study involving over 7,000 United States Army Special Operations Forces soldiers suggests that the recommended eight hours can do wonders for exercise.

Indeed, the study provides research that getting eight hours of sleep may reduce the likelihood of suffering injuries related to exercise. Soldiers that sleep a mere four or five hours a night were twice as likely to sustain injuries to their muscles and bones versus those that slept a minimum of eight hours.

If you maintain a regular exercise routine at home but can’t seem to enjoy a restful sleep, it could be that your mattress is derailing your fitness goals by keeping you up at night. Hästens and Vispring beds are among the world’s most comfortable beds and they may be the solution to help stay on track.

Hästens Makes an Appearance at Stockholm Design Week

Posted February 11th, 2020 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

If you closely follow the Scandinavian design industry, you may have noticed that Stockholm Design Week took place last week. Featuring well over 650 exhibitors showcasing everything from textiles to bedroom furnishings, Interior Design magazine recently published some of the highlights and among them is a very familiar name.

Indeed, Swedish manufacturer Hästens was one of the highlights mentioned by Interior Design. Specifically, it’s the Appaloosa bed bench designed by the acclaimed firm of Bernadotte & Kylberg. The duo is also responsible for collaborating with Hästens on the bed of the same name, a playful approach that retains the Hästens tradition of a horse theme and utilizing only materials that are all-natural. One of its most intriguing features of the bed bench is the novel quiet-hinge system that ensures it is silent even at night. The bench is the first foray by Hästens into furnishings.

Are You Sleeping on Your Back?

Sleeping on your side is a common position yet there is a lot to be said for the many benefits of sleeping on your back. This position is great for alleviating aches in the shoulders and back and it may also help with finding relief from things like sinusitis. Furthermore, back sleepers may find that their skin looks younger with fewer lines.

If back sleeping is proving tricky, it could that your mattress isn’t firm enough. If it’s too soft, you’ll know it after waking up with discomfort after attempting to sleep on your back. This happens due to muscle tension compensating for poor support. Your pillow may also be a factor. If it’s too “plump” or if you sleep with more than one pillow and it’s causing your head to be elevated, the neck discomfort will be noticeable.

With beds like those by Hastens, you can choose your level of firmness. These beds are renowned for their exceptional comfort and back support which means you can sleep in just about any position and wake up refreshed.

Sleep on Cashmere with the Vispring Signatory

Posted January 15th, 2020 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring, ViSpring Signatory by Jorge Lopez

There are multiple ways to describe what it’s like to sleep on the Vispring Signatory bed, and they all require mentioning the materials found inside the painstakingly made mattress: cashmere, Shetland Isle wool, and hand-teased long-stranded horsehair. With these materials, the Signatory delivers an incredible bang for the buck when it comes to sleep. The bed uses a dual-layered vanadium wire innerspring support system consisting of springs with a diameter of just 1.97 inches, which ensures that the greater number of individual springs leads to improved support and comfort no matter the position.

The 9.1-inch deep border is strengthened with a quartet of rows of hand-stitching on all sides, in line with Vispring’s emphasis on handmade beds. Each side of the Signatory contains vents so that air circulates and the body stays cool on hot days. Such handmade borders are upholstered with all-natural coir and wool and for even more sumptuous softness, they even feature piped ticking.

The Signatory has the privilege of being the first luxurious Vispring bed to feature a full layer of quality cashmere. Once used only by noble royalty, cashmere adds a touch of elegant softness that you won’t find other high-end beds.

The Lingering Effects of Fragmented Sleep

Posted January 14th, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Establishing a regular sleep schedule takes work yet it’s incredibly easy to break it. Poor sleep or sleep deprivation may then result in negative effects, including lethargy or irritability. New research, however, is showing that just a single night of poor sleep may up the risk of experiencing a migraine, even several days later.

The study research published in the Neurology journal examined over ninety adults dealing with occasional migraines. After evaluating several factors, researchers found that fragmented sleep increased the chances of experiencing a migraine two days later. Fragmented sleep is when a person lies in bed but remains fully awake.

It remains a mystery as to why a person experiences the migraine days later but the research once again reinforces the importance of actually going to sleep when you go to bed. If fragmented sleep seems unusually common, it is possible your mattress isn’t giving you the comfort and support to help you fall asleep. If you think that may be the case, a Hästens or Vispring bed may help.

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.
