The Importance of an Extra Hour of Sleep

Posted November 13th, 2018 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

It’s safe to say the majority of Americans do not get the recommended minimum of seven hours of sleep a day. Per the American Sleep Apnea foundation, more than half a billion Americans suffer from a sleep disorder while as much as thirty million people experience intermittent sleep. One extra hour of sleep can make a world of difference, and here is a pair of reasons why you should try and get more.

Heart health. Research has shown that those with short sleep increased their risk of coronary heart disease or stroke by just over ten percent compared to those that slept at least six to eight hours. It should be noted that oversleeping is also not a good idea.

Depression and mental health. Those who suffer from a sleep disorder such as insomnia showed a tenfold risk of becoming depressed. Though research is still ongoing, there is also a possibility that not getting enough REM sleep (the deepest sleep state) or poor sleep quality may result in a higher risk of developing dementia.

These two reasons are among the many why you should try and make an effort to get in an extra hour of sleep each night. If it’s the mattress that’s causing your sleep issues, names like Hästens and Vispring are here to save the day. Countless people have upgraded their sleep with these mattresses that are known for helping you fall asleep quickly and stay asleep.

Science Reveals Yet Another Side Effect of Sleep Deprivation

Posted November 8th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

We all know that a good night’s sleep keeps the body and mind in good shape and may prevent lots of illnesses. In case you needed yet another reason to get to bed on time, a recent study suggests that sleeping less than six hours a night will result in another body ailment: dehydration.

Sure enough, researchers discovered that people who slept less than six hours a night showed greater odds of being hydrated, as much as 59 percent compared to those that regularly slept eight hours. The researchers believe this may be due to a hormone in the body called vasopressin which the body regularly releases throughout the day to keep fluid levels manageable. The hormone is released on a quicker basis and later on during the sleep cycle. Because it makes sure that the body doesn’t lose excess water during sleep, vasopressin is unable to properly do its job, resulting in dehydration.

One of the numerous reasons why people don’t get enough sleep or suffer from insomnia is due to having an uncomfortable mattress. With a Vispring or Hastens mattress, there is practically no such thing as tossing and turning as these beds are world-renowned for their optimum comfort and ability to help people fall asleep in a few minutes versus hours. Come to Brickell Mattress and try one today!

They even come with their own duffle, which makes them easy to carry around.

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?

Your Sleepwear May Help with Insomnia

Posted October 17th, 2018 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For the millions of people that deal with sleep disorders like insomnia on a daily basis, there is always the search for a cure to sleep better at night. Could this cure be the clothing you wear to bed? If recent research is any indication, it is a possibility.

Australian scientists conducted studies on young and older sleepers to determine whether wearing wool material to bed could prove an effective way to combat insomnia. One group of participants in their 20s did, in fact, manage to fall asleep about four minutes faster while wearing pajamas made of wool material versus the customary cotton. This group also managed to sleep for an extra seven minutes each night.

The wool material proved to be even more effective with adults between the ages of 65 to 70. This group managed to fall asleep within twelve minutes while wearing wool material versus 20+ minutes for those wearing cotton or polyester material.

As to why wool works so effectively, it may have something to do with its ability to regulate body temperature, allowing a person to stay asleep longer more comfortably.

Combine comfortable sleepwear with some of the world’s most comfortable mattresses by Hästens and Vispring and your insomnia may indeed become a thing of the past. If you need guidance on finding the right mattress to cozy into in your wool PJs, we’re here to help.

Luxury Magazine Recommends Hastens

Posted October 2nd, 2018 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

The Swedish manufacturer Hästens and its beds are as notable for their unparalleled comfort as they are for being something of an exquisitely designed, meticulously handcrafted fashion statement. Being frequently mentioned in numerous high-end publications, Hästens is a perfect fusion of style backed up by decades of proven substance.

Earlier this year, the publication appropriately titled Luxury Magazine published its Spring 2018 issue which featured a section with items for the home. Among the categories was “Home Remedies” which included recommended beds for getting more sleep. Sure enough, Hästens made an appearance, in this case, its 2000T mattress which was re-imagined as the Appaloosa and Marwari to much acclaim by the firm of Bernadotte & Kylberg.

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.

Sleep More, Drive Better

Posted September 18th, 2018 in Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Jorge Lopez

For those of you that live in South Florida and commute to work every day, a large chunk of your time is spent sitting in traffic and dealing with aggressive or distracted drivers. It is imperative to remain vigilant and drive defensively to avoid becoming a victim of a car crash. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, however, you’re only making things worse and riskier for yourself.

A recent SLEEP study reveals some news that isn’t all that surprising. People sleeping fewer than seven hours within a 24-hour period showed greater odds of being involved in as well as causing car crashes. The odds become even greater among individuals that have slept fewer than four hours.

The general consensus seems to be that a person should sleep at least seven hours a night and as much as nine hours, but few people get this much sleep realistically. While we all know that driving drowsy has its major risks, this study sheds some fascinating light on how the number of hours slept correlates with the odds of being involved in or causing a crash.

Could your mattress be playing a role in delaying your efforts to fall asleep? With Hästens or Vispring mattresses, there is practically no tossing and turning. These beds are handmade and have proven time and time again how they make people fall asleep in just a few minutes and keep them asleep. If you live in South Florida and want to add some extra hours to your sleep, we can help you find the right mattress at Brickell Mattress.
