Fall Asleep Fast

Fall Asleep Fast

                Falling asleep quickly is almost everyone’s wish.  How about a full night of restful and comfortable sleep with no tossing or turning.  How many of you are constantly fluffing that pillow or feel restless when you lay down?  Unfortunately this blog will not answer the age old question of how to fall sleep quickly but we can offer some great advice.23

The first and most basic step is acquiring a comfortable mattress.  There are numerous types of mattresses so it is best to do your research and find the one that fits your preferences.  The days of choosing between a hard or soft mattress are gone.  The home bedroom market is full of different products and materials.  This is why it’s important to do your research as well as view our website.  Why do we say that?  Mattresses For Less just doesn’t pick any mattress to sell.  We do our own research into the product making sure the product works as advertised and that its cost is proportionate with its consumer value.  Here are a few mattresses that have great prices and reviews:

Once you find a comfortable mattress be strict about going to bed on time.  For example, get into bed Monday through Friday at 10:30 pm and envision your falling asleep at 10:45 every night.  Eventually your body will get use to this routine and automatically tell itself that it’s time to sleep.  One other small tip is moving your mobile phone away from the nightstand.  You will be surprised how many people feel flustered that they can’t fall asleep and feel like they need to make use of this time.  They will grab their phone and check their email and social media.  It’s best to leave it until the morning.sert

Restful sleep is within your grasp.  It just takes some new tools and patience.  We can ensure you that once you feel a full night’s sleep you will be glad you spent your time, energy, and money to achieve it.

The Evolution of the Mattress

When you look at the vast selection of mattresses available at a mattress store, you probably don’t think much of the variety since thats what you have come to expect. In this day and age we have gotten used to the innovations in mattress technology that make our beds so incredibly comfortable. We are so used to comfortable mattresses that most of us take for granted the fact that things weren’t always this way. Mattresses have come a long way since man first got the idea to not sleep directly on the ground.

The idea of mattresses goes back as far as 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic period. Primitive, cave-dwelling humans, following a Flintstonian line of logic, used large rocks covered in animal skin and grass to sleep on. When there were no raised rocks to rest, sleeping on the ground on top of animal skins was also a popular option. From there, at sometime around 3,000 BCE, Egyptian royalty began the practice of purposely raising their beds off of the ground. Pharaoh Tutankhamen owned a raised bed made of ebony and gold. At this point it was only the royals and possibly some highborn people that had the luxury of an actual bed. Most people at this time were still sleeping on piles of reeds.

It wasn’t until the Roman empire that we see actual stuffed luxury mattresses. Still owned exclusively by the upper echelons of society, these mattresses were stuffed with cotton, feathers, and reeds and usually sat upon beds of precious metal. Some scholars believe that the water bed was also created by the Romans, although there is still some debate on the matter.

With the path laid by the Roman empire, the Renaissance period pioneered on and improved on the Roman model. This is the first period in time when people began to consider what material their mattress was made of, not just what it was stuffed with. They first stuffed a coarse sack full of straw and feathers and proceeded to wrap it in velvet or silk. And thus, silk sheets were created. These mattresses were typically raised on wooden frames, held together by leather straps. This innovation provided to the common people not only raised people above the ground away from the disease infested pests that often resided on their floors, but also heavily prevented harmful mold from growing.

In the 18th century, the cast iron bed as well as the cotton mattress made their first appearances. People began to experiment a bit more on what worked best as mattress filling. Horsehair and coconut fibers were often used in addition to wool and cotton. These new mattresses were also a less attractive space for bugs and other pests. Up until this time bugs were an occupational hazard when it came to sleep so this was a very important innovation.

The next large step in the evolution in mattresses didn’t occur until 1865 when the technology for the first coil spring mattress was patented. The patent was originally used for cushions in chair seats but was soon after transfered to mattresses. Also in the late 19th century, a design for a modern water bed was introduced and was used in hospitals to prevent and treat the formation of ulcers.

The 20th century provided a boom in mattress technology beginning in the 1930’s with the innerspring mattress. Many of the innovations in the 20th century stem from the chemical advancements from WWII. The most common material developed from these advancements is polyurethane foam. It wasn’t until the 50’s that foam mattresses hit the market and became popular. With the development of vinyl, the 60’s ushered in the modern water bed which was very popular until the late 1900’s ushered in pillow-top, pocket spring, adjustable, and air mattresses. Memory foam was developed by NASA in the 60’s but did not become commercially popular until the 90’s.

These days there are too many different variations of popular mattress designs to even count. Just as we as a species has evolved, our emphasis of the importance of comfort has evolved with us. The choices that are currently available to you when you’re shopping for mattresses are numerous and they can all be found in one place: Mattresses for Less. Come get your new mattress at Mattresses for Less and after they deliver it the same day and haul away your old mattress, once you lay down to go to sleep, think about how far mattresses have come and how glad you are to not be sleeping on a rock.

The Purpose of Pillows

There are some components of a well-made bed that are associated with decor, and others that are associate with a good night’s sleep. There are obvious ones like sheets and comforters that provide warmth and a sense of security and protection. Other accoutrements such as bed-skirts or dust ruffles have a more practical purpose; namely to deflect dust particles that often gather in the space underneath the bed.

Do pillows have a real purpose in the overall sleep equation, or are they just another decorative touch? Do you even need a pillow to experience rest-full sleep? The answer may surprise you.

Pillows were designed to keep your head elevated and your neck in a neutral position. Together, you can sleep much more soundly. They have a considerable effect on the quality of sleep you get, and directly affect how rested and alert you feel in the morning.

Without a pillow, depending on how you sleep, you may wake up with head, neck, or back aches as well as temporary numbness to certain extremities. Pillows are designed to keep your spine straight while you sleep so without them there can be some serious discomfort and sleep problems.

Depending on what position you typically fall asleep in, you might need a particular type of pillow. For those of you who like to sleep on your back, you will probably prefer a pillow that is a bit thinner than normal since your neck doesn’t need much elevation to keep your back straight. For the side sleepers out there, you will probably need a thicker, firmer pillow since there is plenty of room needed to keep your head in the proper position. If you are someone who sleeps on their stomach, you probably need a very thin pillow or no pillow at all. The position we tend to doze off in is important to consider when shopping for the right pillow since it may be the difference between a normal nights sleep and a great nights sleep.

There are a wide variety of pillow types, the difference between them being the material with which they are stuffed. For back-sleepers the best choices are memory foam, kapok (from the soft fibers of the ceiba tree), or polyester fiberfill due to their softness and lack of resistance. There are many options for those who prefer to sleep on their side such as natural latex, organic wool, buckwheat as well as memory foam and polyester fiberfill since all of which are thick or supportive enough to keep your head properly elevated. Down feather or organic cotton pillows are best suited for stomach sleepers since they are very maleable and soft.

It is a good idea to wash you pillow case often and replace your pillow at least once every two years. Pillows will begin to gather all kinds of nasty things like mildew, dust mites, and mold which can lead to allergic reactions and discomfort if they go unwashed and do not get replaced. If you are sleeping on an old pillow, or even just a pillow that isn’t right for your sleeping style, you may be suffering from minor exhaustion.

Next time you are shopping for a pillow, think twice before just pulling one at random off of the shelf. Consider how you prefer to sleep and make an informed decision so you can optimize the quality of sleep you are getting nightly. Besides a comfortable mattress, a pillow that meets your particular needs can be the best tool to be as rested as you can be.
