Is Snoring Affecting Your Sleep?

Posted January 11th, 2019 in Carpe Diem, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

One of the most common things many of us do when we’re sleeping is snoring. In most cases, it’s nothing of concern. However, if snoring is consistent, it can lead to a reduction of sleep quality which, in turn, can result in several negative effects such as irritability, fatigue, and potential relationship strain due to a partner being unable to sleep.

The underlying reasons for snoring aren’t quite as complicated as you may think. It happens when air flow encounters obstructions, causing a “rattle” in the tissues of the throat and nose which leads to the familiar snoring sound. People that sleep on their back, consume large amounts of alcohol, smoke, or are overweight all have greater odds of snoring.

So, how do you stop snoring? There are simple steps you can take. For starters, making some changes to the lifestyle such as weight control, not consuming alcohol before bedtime, and refraining from smoking can help. Ensuring your mattress is providing the proper support can also help. The brands we sell like Vispring and Hastens are renowned for their exceptional support.

Sleep Deprivation Raises Alzheimer’s Risk

Posted January 9th, 2019 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

There are thousands if not millions of articles discussing the multitude of negative effects that come with sleep deprivation. As science continues into its effects, there is yet another reason why you should consider making 2019 the year where you get more sleep.

Washington University School of Medicine researchers may have found a deeper link between Alzheimer’s disease and sleep deprivation. Older individuals that experienced fewer deep sleep cycles showed higher levels of a brain protein. Elevated levels of this protein are a sign of potential Alzheimer’s disease and have also been linked a reduction in cognitive abilities as well as possible brain damage. Alzheimer’s disease affects over five million Americans and it is a disease that creeps up slowly.

The above findings once again reinforce how imperative it is that you try and incorporate some extra hours into your sleep. One way to start doing that is by making sure that you have the right mattress. Visit us at Brickell Mattress and we’ll just the right mattress for you by names like Vispring and Hastens. We are almost certain you’re going to feel an incredible difference and a more restful sleep this year.

Sleep More, Stick to Your Resolutions

Posted January 3rd, 2019 in Hastens, Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? Besides adopting a regular workout routine, you may have decided this year is the one where you’re going to start going to bed earlier. If so, you may be surprised to learn how improving your sleep can make your other 2019 resolutions easier to achieve and perhaps most importantly, stick to.

Maintaining your diet. Eating healthier is among the most common of resolutions yet many people fail to stick to it. Researchers found that people pulling an all-nighter not only had a greater appetite, but they were also more prone to seek out foods packed with calories due to being sleep deprived.

Wiser money management. Other resolutions people typically make is becoming better about saving for the future or an emergency situation. Another study showed that sleep-deprived volunteers were more likely to take risks without considering the potential losses.

Make a Better Night’s Sleep a 2019 Resolution

Posted December 19th, 2018 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Did you know that according to the CDC, one in every three adults does not get a sufficient amount of sleep? With the year coming to a close, it may be a wise idea to consider prioritizing sleep as one of your New Year’s resolutions, along with any others you may have such as exercising regularly or adopting better eating habits.

One way to get started with improving your sleep hygiene is to try and get into the habit of absorbing plenty of sunlight during the daylight hours and then limiting exposure to light when night falls. This also means perhaps going without that cup of coffee once you’ve had dinner.

Another way to improve your sleep in 2019 is one you may have heard before. You probably have a certain sleep schedule that you follow during the weekdays. Consider sticking to that same schedule even on weekends when you’re tempted to go to bed later or sleep in. Consistency is key in getting the body used to schedule where you’ll wake up naturally.

Finally, come up with a routine that does not involve electronics. That means resisting the urge to use your smartphone or any electronic device at least an hour before going to bed and using the bedroom strictly for sleep. Maybe sprinkle some lavender oil on the sheets or reduce the brightness of the lights.

Don’t forget to invest a good mattress in 2019 that provides back support. With names like Hastens and Vispring, you’ll be better able to stick your routine and resolution.

Are You Feeling Irritated? You Could Be Sleep Deprived

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

Feeling a bit irritable lately? Perhaps you’re losing your cool over trivial matters. It could be a lack of sleep. A recent Journal of Experimental Psychology: General study reinforces what most of us already suspect: losing as little as two hours of sleep may make you angrier and not quite as able to deal with situations causing you frustration. While it’s well-known that being sleep deprived can increase depression and anxiety, the study is among the first to show a potential correlation between sleep deprivation and anger.

The study involved just over 140 participants divided into a pair of groups. One group was asked to maintain their normal sleep routine (seven hours of sleep or more) while the other group only slept for about four hours each night. Sure enough, the sleep deprived group became more irritable when attempting to perform the same task as the group that had slept enough hours.

One of the hardest part of falling asleep for many is when they lay down in bed and begin to toss and turn until they find the ideal position, often spending as much as thirty minutes or more. With beds by Hästens and Vispring, you can fall asleep in virtually seconds without frequently changing positions throughout the night. Curious to learn more? Pay us a visit and we’ll be happy to share more about these incredible brands.

Sleep Positions and Your Body

Posted December 6th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Have you ever woken up with your neck feeling unusually stiff? If so, you may have automatically assumed it was because you slept in a bad position. Though there isn’t much you can do once you drift off to sleep in terms of adjusting your position, there are a couple of signs that may indicate your mattress isn’t providing the support to ensure you aren’t tossing and turning into some awkward positions.

Tingling and numbness. If your arm or hands tingle, it could be you aren’t sleeping the right way. Sleeping on your side, for example, can put pressure on the nerves in your arm or hand. One option if you are a side sleeper is to purchase a contoured pillow.

Wrist or elbow irritation. That tingling sensation could also happen if your wrist or elbow is bent for a prolonged period. It’s not uncommon for people to grab onto their pillow or place their hand underneath the pillow for greater support. This is also common when you wake up in the morning to turn off your alarm and your hand has “fallen asleep”.

Chronic pain. Stomach sleeping can cause back strain as well as a strain in the neck. Hence, it is important to have a firm sleep surface so that the body is properly supported if that’s what you find comfortable.

If it’s the mattress that’s keeping you up and causing you aches, pain, and strain, we have mattresses by names like Vispring and Hästens. These names have achieved a near-legendary status for being exceptionally comfortable and providing continuous support regardless of your preferred sleeping position.

A Great Night’s Sleep Is Priceless

Posted December 5th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When it comes to mattresses like those made by Swedish manufacturer Hästens, a lot of the attention is placed on the price tag. This is certainly understandable, but can you really put a price on something you do every day which also affects your mental and physical health? This is where a bit of research and consideration can come into play.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide recently shed some light on Hästens after a Jackson, Wyoming based store became the first in all of the Intermountain West to earn the status of a Hästens dealer. As the owner of the store puts it, the carefully handmade beds are “hand-down-to-your-grandchild beds” and as the article puts it, “…it’s not the money but what you get for it.”

Hästens beds take over 300 hours to make and if you’ve read about how the beds are made in their factory, it’s refreshing to know that these are being made using the meticulous skill and attention of artisans versus another robotic assembly line. Plus, they continue to use only natural materials like horsehair to create what many would agree are the most comfortable beds in the world that can also regulate body temperature and remove the effects of static electricity.

If you don’t live anywhere near Wyoming, no worries! You can visit Brickell Mattress right here in Miami and check out a Hästens mattress in person.

Also be sure to check out the “Hästens: an expensive bed — but people buy it” article to learn more.

Is Static Electricity Causing Your Insomnia?

Posted November 27th, 2018 in Hastens, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Are you suffering from a lack of sleep? Does it seem like you just can’t find a comfortable position? Maybe the stress of the day has the body feeling tense and you may not even realize it. While there are countless reasons as to why you’re having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, one reason that most people tend not to think about too much is the effects of static electricity on the body.

Static electricity is a result of electrical equipment and the friction caused by synthetic furnishings. This friction may develop during sleep. You may, for example, be sleeping near a power cord (i.e.: your mobile phone charger) or perhaps the night shade you use is causing your body to be exposed to this static electricity. Hence, it is important to take into account where your bed is located. The potential to be exposed to static electricity also reinforces the importance of trying to get into the habit of sleeping in a bedroom that is as free of electronics as possible, including a television.

The human body is comprised of ions that are negative and positive. While they typically balance each other out without issue, the aforementioned friction could lead to sleep disruption as well as negative side effects such as stress or even anxiety. The materials that your mattress is made out of can also contribute to poor sleep if it uses materials such as polyester or nylon, for example.

Hästens has earned a sterling reputation for creating what many would agree are the world’s most comfortable beds, and their grounding effect plays a major role in this comfort. Hästens beds are entirely and meticulously handmade by professional artisans using only natural materials. These materials include horsehair, cotton, wool, and flax, which collectively create this effect where they remove static electricity from the body that has accumulated throughout the day, pulling it away from the body as you sleep. As a result, once you wake up the following day, there is a genuine sense of rejuvenation, relaxation, and plenty of energy to take on whatever the day has in store for you.
