The Possible Ties Between COVID-19 and Sleep

Posted December 22nd, 2020 in Brickell Mattress, mattress collection, Sleep, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Melatonin is best known as the sleep hormone, and its most familiar role is the regulation of our circadian rhythms. Each night, as darkness falls, it shoots out of our brain’s pineal glands and into our blood, inducing sleep. However, some research suggests that it may also help in immune system calibration. This means it can keep the immune system’s defenses from overreacting which is often a reason why a mild case of something like COVID-19 becomes a much more serious issue.

According to an article in The Atlantic, eight clinical trials are currently ongoing, around the world, to see what melatonin is capable of. Few other treatments are receiving so much research attention. If melatonin proves to help people, it would be the cheapest and most readily accessible medicine to counter COVID-19. Unlike experimental drugs such as remdesivir and antibody cocktails, melatonin is widely available in the United States as an over-the-counter dietary supplement. People could start taking it immediately.

Deep sleep is essential to the production of melatonin. If you’re tossing and turning, you’re not getting the best sleep. Visit Brickell Mattress and let’s talk about upgrading and improving your sleep in 2021.

Sleeping in on Weekends Isn’t Relieving Sleep Debt

Posted July 1st, 2020 in mattress collection, Sleep, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Are you one of those people that only get about six hours of sleep on weekdays but then attempt to “make up” for it by sleeping in on weekends? If so, there is some bad news to report. French researchers say catching up on sleep during the weekend does not work. The research involved over 10,000 participants deemed “short sleepers” who only slept six hours a night or less. That is considerably less than the recommended seven to eight hours most people need to feel well-rested.

Some of the causes behind the large accumulation of sleep debt include working night shifts, long commutes, and being too attached to technology like smartphones. Should sleep debt continue to increase, the risk of developing health issues like depression, obesity, and even heart disease or diabetes may increase.

If you’re curious about ways to relieve your sleep debt, one thing to look at is the mattress you’re sleeping on. Even if you’re going to bed at a normal time each night, a mattress that isn’t supportive will result in tossing and turning, contributing to poor sleep. If possible, try and get into the habit of going to bed when you feel tired and waking when rested for at least two weeks to take care of your sleep debt.

Simple Sleep Guidelines for a Healthier Immune System

You may be familiar with the saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” By now it’s clear that a good night’s rest is fundamental to boosting the immune system and keeping it strong so that it’s better equipped to fight illnesses and infectious diseases like COVID-19.

Although opinions continue to vary on how much sleep is ideal, we know that quality still outstrips quantity when it comes to optimizing sleep benefits. It’s important to experience deep restful and restorative sleep in your body to get the full benefit from your sleep time.

Here are a few easy things not to forget which will help you get the most out of your sleep:

Sleep Environment. Make sure the room temperature remains cool and that air can flow freely. You may want to get rid of any electronic noise or lighting that may disrupt your sleep.

Sleep Preparation. While you may do it in the morning, stretching before bed can help. What you wear to bed can also affect your sleep quality, so you may wish to stick to fabrics like cotton or linen that allow air circulation. A cup of caffeine-free tea will also help you relax.

Your Bed and Bedding. Your mattress should be one that conforms to your body and offers the right level of support no matter what position you’re sleeping in. Your pillow should also be one that offers comfort depending on your preferred sleep position. Make sure your bed linens are breathable.

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.

The Ties Between Sleep Deprivation and Anxiety

Posted December 4th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Sleep, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

You’re likely among the millions of people that have gone to bed only to fall into a state of sleep where you’re tossing and turning yet you’re not fully awake either. This is often caused by disorders like anxiety, as they have been known to result in poorer sleep quality. Now, a recent Nature Human Behavior study shows how closely intertwined anxiety and sleep deprivation are.

The study showed that just a single night of disturbed sleep resulted in a whopping thirty percent increase in anxiety levels the next day. On a positive note, the study also showed that deep sleep does indeed cut down on stress caused by anxiety disorders.

While anxiety disorders have been known to frequently cause sleep issues, the study reveals that sleep may be proven as a clinical recommendation to cut down on anxiety levels. If you’re anxious and aren’t sleeping on a mattress that’s supporting you, it’s a recipe for a huge assortment of health issues that go beyond anxiety. Hence, it’s imperative to find a bed that will keep you feeling comfy, rested, and rejuvenated.
