Whether you want to find out if you need a new bed or you want to find the best bed for you - our Sleepgrader will support you!
As I had pointed out in one of my previous blogs about the sleep pyramid, good sleep quality is not just about mattresses and bed rooms - nutrition is also an important element when it comes to perfect sleep. Needless to mention that you should not consume well known sleepkillers such as coffee, alcohol or heavy food less than 2-3 hours before going to bed. What might be new for you: There is even food that may help to improve your sleep - and unlike most healthy things it's even tasting fine!
Looking beyond the next borders means from the perspective of your bed that you should once reflect, if your sleep environment (which is your bedroom) is good enough to support deep and undisturbed sleep - or not. There are a few points to consider and possibly to improve to make your sleep paradise come true. Too low temperature in a bedroom is flagging cold environment and your body starts to heat up!
Many products which seem to be very exciting at first sight also have a less attractive side which remains often undetected because manufacturers do not talk about it. So do also Memory-Foam mattresses which have been promoted strongly during many years (and still are) by one of the leading mattress producers and by many smaller manufacturers who tried to capture a part of that market. You might be familiar with the story about the NASA development and the tale about ultimate comfort which associates a weightless feeling, almost like flying. There is more to know if you want to recognize the full scope of this material which has its benefits without doubt, but, as said before, also its disadvantages. MemoryFoam is chemically treated with the target to lose its resilience completely. The result is a foam that after being compressed is hardly "pushing back" and so it seems to memorize the shape of the object that has caused the said compression. This lack of resilience provides a feeling of total pressure relief which is perceived as very comfortable by many consumers at first sight. The disadvantages are very often recognized later at home.
Making a power nap (or not) is more a matter of cultural mind set than of individual attitude. In some countries in Asia you will meet people literally everywhere sleeping in positions you would not imagine. Unfortunately, in the Western World sleeping during daytime is still as a sign of weakness and lack of discipline. It’s so bizarre since a nap of 20 minutes makes you stronger instantly and it has a sustainable ipopwempact on your vitality.
