  • How Stress Affects Your Sleep

    If you have ever been so tired that you simply cannot fall asleep, you are not alone. Many individuals wake up in the morning feeling much more tired than they did when they went to bed the night before. Oftentimes, we come home from a long hard day completely wired, with the inability to quickly fall asleep or stay asleep. Many individuals suffer from adrenal fatigue as a result of their increased stress levels from their hectic life that are simply impossible to reduce even after they come home for rest at night.

    Hormone Induced Restlessness

    The stress of daily living often causes the adrenal glands to produce high levels of cortisol and adrenaline. These stress hormones have been proven to increase inflammation and deregulate blood sugar levels. The results often produce hormonal chaos that can cause immune suppression. Individuals that suffer from high levels of stress often have digestive issues that are caused by adrenal dysfunction.

    The condition, over time, can put on those few extra pounds that are impossible to lose. Anytime we experience panic mode as a result of daily stress, our bodies tend to store everything, making it nearly impossible to reduce excessive fat.

    Sleep Deprivation

    Once we understand that stress is nothing more than a response to our daily life, it is easy to recognize that it will affect us physically, emotionally, and in our behaviors. While the right amount of stress works as a positive force in our daily life, too much of it makes us anxious, tense and causes significant sleep problems. While assessing our daily stress levels and performing exercise routines can help offset our anxiousness, a good mattress can provide the much-deserved rest our body requires.

    Diminishing Stress Levels

    While the news is not good about changing our lifestyles anytime soon, there are ways to improve our health by decreasing our reaction to stress. Sleeping on a quality mattress diminishes tossing and turning at night. By avoiding the intermittent, small wake ups in our sleeping pattern, we can eliminate the constant waking up and inability to fall back to sleep all throughout the night.

    Part of living a restful existence requires not eating before bed time. By cutting back on refined carbohydrates, sugar, and gluten, our adrenal glands will begin to function normally. Additionally, meditating or doing yoga just a few minutes each day, tends to straighten out the rhythms of our bodies, making us feel more peaceful at night.

  • How Much Support Do I Need in My Mattress?

    Most individuals do not have much experience in shopping around for the best mattress. Shopping for a bed is usually an experience that only happens once every decade, so it is not difficult to imagine why many people do not know what size, shape, or style of mattress would be a good purchase.

    To understand exactly what type of mattress you need and the amount of support required is dependent on a few things, including the size your bed and what will offer you maximum support, for the type of unit you desire.

    The Size

    If you are looking to simply replace the worn-out mattress you have, then the size of the new unit needs to fit the bed frame you have. It most likely will be a full, queen, or king size (or a California King). Small, single size beds are usually a twin. However, if you are looking for something new, there is a rule of thumb to follow to ensure you are getting a bed that will fit you. If you are taller than 5’5”, then a queen or larger size bed is ideal for you. Full size beds work well for individuals short or than 5’5”. Before running off to purchase a large mattress, consider if there is enough space in your bedroom to accommodate the bed so that you can still walk around it.

    The Material

    With new advancements in technology, there are many types of materials available to sleep on that include foam, innerspring, latex, and even hybrid mattresses. The support is typically indicated by the wideness of the coils. The wider they are, the more support they provide. However, the rating can be confusing. A 13-gauge coil offers much more support and significantly less motion transfer that a coil system of 15-gauge.

    Firm or Soft

    There is also a rule of thumb in determining whether a softer unit is best for you. If you are larger individual, you probably require more support for your larger build, and need a firmer mattress. Smaller, or shorter, individuals find softer units more comfortable as they have much less weight to displace. Additionally, if you suffer from a bad back then a firm mattress might offer more relief by reducing the pressure on your lower back and hips.

    Whenever you are buying a new mattress, and you are wondering about how much support you need, it is essential to ask lots of questions before making a purchase.

  • Tips for Coping with a Sleep Walker

    Although at some point we have all had an odd experience during our sleep cycle, dealing with the sleepwalker is a unique event to most of us. At some point, we all get up when we are not fully awake, to head to the bathroom, or see what the noise is outside. However, sleepwalking is an altogether different experience that requires special care by our loved ones.

    Typically happening a few hours after bedtime, it is not uncommon that the sleepwalker is moving around the house looking confused and dazed. This is often a typical occurrence in children and not so much in adults.

    The Behavior of a Sleepwalker

    Sonnambulism, or sleepwalking, involves a lot more than just walking. The behavior of the sleepwalker can often range from being harmless (by just sitting up), to something potentially dangerous (walking outside unattended). Typically, a sleepwalker rarely remembers the event.

    It is essential to keep your sleepwalker safe around the home, during the event. To help them stay out of harm’s way, it is important to:

    • Keep Them Sleeping – Do not try to wake up your sleepwalker, as it may scare them. Simply guide them back to their bed and tuck them in.
    • Block All Doors and Windows – It is essential to lock all exterior doors and windows to minimize the potential of them walking outdoors.
    • Avoid Bunk Beds – Sleepwalker should never rest on a bunk bed. You will need to reduce the potential of falling and hurting themselves from a high distance. A large, comfortable mattress works best.
    • Contain Them – A true sleepwalker needs to be contained. Without thinking, they can easily walk outside even on a cold, freezing night and cause harm to themselves or trouble for someone else.
    • Avoid Dangerous Items – Because a true sleepwalker does not understand what is going on around them, it is imperative to keep all dangerous objects safely out of reach. This would include knives, guns, and any sharp objects.
    • Reduce Obstacles – Consider reducing or removing all obstacles from their room, the hallway, and throughout the home. This will eliminate the potential for stumbling.

    Additionally, there are proactive things you can do to make your sleepwalker less likely to perform their episodic event during the night. Relaxation tapes or soft music at bedtime helps him or her relax deeper. Reduce beverage consumption in the evening to make them less likely to want to use the bathroom during the night. Finally, it is essential to always keep the bedroom cozy, with a comfortable mattress that is conducive to restful slumber.

  • Binge Eating Causes Sleep Issues

    At some point in everyone’s life, we have experienced binge eating as a way to find relaxation or just to enjoy delicious food. While it often feels great for the few minutes we’re enjoying the experience, it can bring along with it negative consequences that are both physical and emotional. We might feel disappointed in ourselves for what we have done, and feel uncomfortable through our weight gain and diminished health. Recent studies have shown there are numerous negative impacts to binge eating, that include the elimination of quality sleep.

    Altering Sleep Patterns

    Individuals that binge eat often tend to develop significant sleep issues. Historically, people that binge eat have many sleep difficulties, along with other maladies including obesity, signs of depression, and others.

    Binge Eating and Sleeping Issues

    Somehow, there appears to be some type of connection between binge eating and sleeping issues. Researchers are not exactly sure which one is causing the other. However, with speculation, it is easy to explain the relationship between binge eating and worsened sleep.

    The diminishing levels of sleep are known to influence the hormones that control appetite. Sleeplessness often drives the body to consume many more calories. Studies on the lack of sleep have recognized that stress plays a significant role in the adrenaline glands producing higher levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) which are directly linked to increasing appetite and the development of many sleep disorders.

    Even though the root cause of binge eating cannot be correlated directly to sleeplessness, scientists know both of them are clearly related. Individuals that struggle with sleeping problems, and constantly feel restless and tired throughout the day, need to make a good night’s rest the top priority in their life.

    A Supportive Mattress

    This can be accomplished through the purchase of a quality mattress that offers support and a high level of comfort throughout the sleeping cycle. Individuals that sleep on a quality supportive mattress are less likely to toss and turn, and wake up continuously throughout the night.

    Binge eating disorders and restless, sleepless nights might be able to be controlled by getting a better night’s sleep on a quality mattress. Additionally, psychotherapy, medicine, nutritional counseling, and family and/or group therapy can also restore a more normal level of eating and sleeping.

    By getting a good night of quality sleep, we can adjust our mood and stress levels, and return to proper brain function.

  • How to (Effectively) Research Mattresses Online

    While it has long been known that paying more for a mattress does not necessarily mean you are getting a better night sleep, just how do you effectively research for mattresses online? There are numerous key indicators to tell you a lot about each unit that are based on personal experience, ratings, reviews, comments, warranties, and customer service. Each indicator can paint an accurate picture of exactly how the unit will perform in your home.

    Some of those indicators include:

    Ownership Satisfaction – There are numerous individuals that enjoy sleeping on a foam mattress, while others require an innerspring. While the type of material you sleep on is certainly a personal preference, many long reviews give detailed descriptions that inform others of their individual experience.

    Price – After reading a lot of reviews, comments, and feedback, it is obvious that mid-price units overall tend to have the same owner satisfaction as high priced beds. This would indicate that is not necessary to spend huge amounts of money to obtain a competitive mattress.

    Lower Back Support – Many reviews indicate that specific types of beds are better at pain relief by offering greater lower back support. Seek out units that clearly state they help support the hip, shoulder and back.

    Warranties – Reading a full explanation of the warranty will help decipher between the good and bad mattress. Look for specific key aspects including how long each warranty lasts, and the guarantees of replacing a unit if you are dissatisfied with the sleeping experience it provides.

    Pillow Tops – There is extensive information on whether pillow top units provide better durability and longevity than mattresses without one.

    Returns – The store’s policies on returns usually indicate customer satisfaction. While not everyone will be happy with their purchase, quality made units that are promoted correctly will tend to have fewer returns.

    Latex vs. Memory Foam – There is an extensive difference between a latex and a memory foam mattress, along with their important similarities. By analyzing both, you can comparison shop before selecting the best one for you.

    Adjustable Beds – Many adjustable beds offer significant comfort benefits over standard beds. Each one is rated for quality, durability, comfort, and warranties.

    By reading the reviews, comments, and feedback from satisfied (or not) customers you can gain a firm understanding of exactly what you are purchasing, and the level of comfortable sleep it most likely will provide for years to come.
