Entrepreneurial Success May Be Tied to a Good Night’s Sleep

 

Behind every great entrepreneur, there is the belief their success came as a result of focusing on hard work versus spending time sleeping. However, this myth of the successful, sleep-deprived entrepreneur is being debunked with a series of studies suggesting a good night’s sleep may result in great ideas.

In one study, nearly 800 practicing entrepreneurs were compared and asked to report the sleep they experienced the night before. Each individual was asked to read a trio of novel venture executive summaries that intentionally varied in quality and practicality. Indeed, the well-rested entrepreneurs were able to rank better ideas higher than those that slept less. This may provide evidence that entrepreneurs who are sleep deprived put greater concentration on superficial cues when coming up with initial beliefs regarding ideas for a new venture.

Do you want to see your business or groundbreaking idea succeed? It may be time to take your sleep seriously and choose a mattress that does the body and mind good. We’ll be happy to help you find a bed that will help you get the rest you need to increase the odds of success.

Just Four Days of Poor Sleep May Affect the Waistline

Are you regularly experiencing trouble sleeping due to reasons such as insomnia? Here is yet another reason to prioritize your sleep: a mere four days of insufficient sleep may add pounds to your waistline.
How is this happening? According to the study conducted by a Pennsylvania State University team, the body will change the way it stores fat, boosting the chances of developing obesity. The study involved a group of fifteen men deemed to be in good health, all of which were in their 20s. The men were fed a diet high in fat and calories while limiting their sleep to a maximum of five hours for four consecutive nights.

Researchers discovered that sleep deprivation caused the body to increase its insulin production to higher levels. Fats from the meal were also cleared away faster, leading to the fat being stored in the body and causing weight gain.
Plenty of studies continue to corroborate the link between poor sleep and diseases like diabetes. This study serves as yet another reason to make sure you’re getting to bed on time and sleeping on a mattress that will help you fall asleep…and stay asleep.

Poor Sleep? Take Steps to Improve It

Posted September 25th, 2019 in Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Getting better sleep is something many of us aim to achieve every night. Consistently poor sleep can lead to a sleep disorder like insomnia and it can even affect a person’s physical and mental health. How do you improve it? Here are a few ways.

Instead of relying on your watch or phone to track your sleep habits, use a diary instead without going overboard. Jot down what time you’re going to bed, how long you slept, and what time you’re getting up. This will provide a much better idea of your sleep quality while helping you pinpoint possible patterns.

When you wake up in the middle of the night, you may have a tendency of checking to see what time it is. Although tempting, refrain from doing this as it will only serve to make you anxious about how many hours of sleep you have left and whether or not you’re going to feel rested enough to tackle the day.

What are some of the other tips? Ones you’ve probably heard before: use your bedroom solely for sleeping, refrain from using electronic devices before bedtime, and avoid caffeinated beverages when it’s close to that time.

Speaking of feeling rested enough, if you aren’t sleeping on beds like those by Vispring or Hästens, those hours you do spend in bed might not be giving you the full rest and support you need. Curious? Visit us at Brickell Mattress and we’ll tell you more.

Posted September 18th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

For many people, pets are considered another member of the family.

Considering how important sleep is, Hästens is bringing their relentless better sleep commitment to beds for our four-legged friends.

Hästens is joining forces with luxury game table designer 11 Ravens to create a limited edition series of dog beds featured a trio of modern designs.

Buyers can also choose one of fourteen different Hästens fabric finishes to create something that their pooch is sure to love. What’s more, the Hästens and 11 Ravens collaboration will also support the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), a non-profit organization that’s been around since the 1860s.

The Trouble with “Hacking” Your Sleep

Posted September 18th, 2019 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Is it possible to “hack” your sleep? For example, can you train your body to survive on fewer than eight hours of sleep? You may convince yourself that’s the case but really, you’re not doing your mind and body any favors.

In regards to reducing your need for sleep, it may not be working. The truth is the majority of people need at least seven hours of sleep to ensure optimal function. If that’s not happening, things may seem okay but you may be doing is coping with the ongoing stress of being sleep deprived…and not realizing it.

Another hack people try and do is sleeping in increments. They may, for example, wake up after a couple of hours, perform some tasks, and then go back to sleep. The problem with this is it cuts off REM sleep, which is the deep sleep period where dreams occur. If you’re preventing REM sleep from happening, you may find your alertness and mood negatively affected.

The “Indescribable Feeling” of a Hästens Bed

Posted August 27th, 2019 in Hastens, Hästens mattress, Hästens mattresses, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When it comes to Hästens mattresses, a lot of people tend to immediately zero in on the price of the beds before fully understanding what these beds are all about. Once you’ve taken the time to explore the sheer amount of time and effort that goes into meticulously creating these beds, you begin to comprehend why Hästens beds are practically unrivaled when it comes to comfort and long-lasting durability.

The website LATF USA published an article earlier this week delving deeper into Hästens beds. The author “…did not understand why this mattress needed a special introduction” but her mind was quickly changed when she laid down on the mattress and became “overcome with an indescribable feeling of tranquility.” The article is definitely worth a read as it delves into the history of Hästens and also provides a deep explanation into the various all-natural materials found in the beds and how they work towards creating that “indescribable feeling” the author was talking about.

Enjoy a Restful Sleep with Your Partner

Posted August 27th, 2019 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Many of us share a bed with a partner, which can sometimes present problems when you’re trying to get some much-needed shuteye. Your partner may snore or they may do a lot of tossing and turning, potentially causing disruptions in your sleep. A way to solve this is by making sure you and your partner are choosing the right mattress.

Let’s take movement, for example. You may be fast asleep or drifting off to sleep when your partner decides to move around. This can be jarring and it may “reset” any progress you’ve made towards falling asleep. With mattress brands like Hästens, these beds are known for isolating movements. In other words, if your partner likes to toss and turn a lot, you won’t be affected by the change in sleep position, ensuring your sleep remains undisturbed.

In regards to temperature, a chilly 65 degrees is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation but that may not be realistic. This can often be an issue for couples and it is made even worse if they are sweating at night due to a partner’s body heat or a mattress that’s too hot. Again, Hästens is made of all-natural materials that do an impressive job of keeping the air circulating while wicking away moisture so you sleep cooler at night.

Take a Bath Before Bed, Sleep Better

Posted August 26th, 2019 in Hastens, Hästens mattresses, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

Countless people suffer from a sleep disorder such as insomnia. These problems often involve lots of tossing and turning, with an inability to fall asleep. In addition to having a comfortable, supportive mattress, recent research seems to reinforce the benefits of taking a shower just before bed.

Over 5,000 studies involving the relationship between sleep and bathing reveal that indeed, a warm bath of at least 104 degrees can significantly boost sleep efficiency. In other words, there was less tossing and turning and more time sleeping versus not taking a shower before bed. If the shower is taken about an hour or so before bedtime, the speed of falling asleep increases by over thirty percent.

What is it about a shower that does the body and sleep well? Let’s refer to science. A person’s body temperature fluctuates in a 24 hour period, with it being higher in the morning and evening and at its lowest during nighttime sleep. The body temperature needs to plummet to initiate quality sleep. When taking a warm shower or bath, the body carries significant blood flow to the surface, particularly to the feet and hands.

Combine the warm bath with a Hästens or Vispring mattress and you may never have to deal with sleep disorders again.
