Many of us underestimate the power a good mattress can have in helping us beat insomnia. But all that might be about to change…
The difference a good night’s sleep can make to our day is phenomenal. We’re less irritable, and we feel more alert, upbeat and generally better in every way. We’re even less likely to eat junk food, make silly mistakes at work and get upset over things that wouldn’t normally bother us. Waking up after a night of tossing and turning, on the other hand, leaves us feeling down, short-tempered and emotionally wobbly to say the least (cue crying at that silly advert with the adorable cat in it).
But unfortunately many – if not most – of us are familiar with the second scenario. And the worst bit is insomnia has even become the norm for a lot of us, who struggle into work, day in, day out on less-than-enough sleep. We battle through meetings with sore, scratchy eyes and sleepwalk through the office clutching strong cups of coffee and unhealthy snacks. We then stumble home through our sleep-haze and crash on the sofa before ordering a takeaway to save from expending our last bit of energy on cooking. Sound familiar?
If this is you, don’t worry, you’re certainly not alone.
And what’s even better is that you don’t have to put up with this way of living.
If you’re sick of those restless nights where you find yourself wide awake for no reason at all it could well be that you’re simply underestimating the importance of having the right environment to nod off in.
Enter: the Dormeo Octaspring Mattress. Breathable memory foam springs of different firmnesses are arranged in up to eight body zones to provide unmatched levels of support, flexibility and comfort across your entire body for a healthy, restful sleep. Better sleep – better living.
Read on to find out how switching over to one of the most modern, sleep-focused mattresses on the planet might just change your life for the better.
1. The Octaspring mattress has been proven to be eight times more breathable than traditional memory foam mattresses. Its unique ventilation system provides constant airflow. In fact, body movements actually push air that’s warm and humid out of the sides of the mattress, and draw fresh air back in. This intelligent system is designed to help you sleep, based on the fact that we physically need to cool down to drift off. In fact, the mechanism that makes us switch into sleep mode is that of our body’s core temperature dropping, so if we’re too hot and stuffy in bed, we’re much more likely to get stuck on ‘awake’.
2. Dormeo Octaspring mattresses employ ‘memory foam zoning’. That means they use a range of different memory foam springs in varying levels of firmness to support each part of your body in the right way. So no more achy hips, necks or knees when you’re trying to drift off. Without those niggling pains keeping you up, or waking you up, you’ll be much more likely to fall asleep – and stay asleep for the night.
3. Dormeo Octaspring mattresses just feel luxurious. Maybe it’s because Dormeo has been crafting these Italian-made beauties for over ten years, or it’s that they’re so comfortable you get that high-end hotel feeling as soon as you flop on to one of them. Whatever it is, Dormeo Octaspring mattresses have a certain je ne sais quois that creates a truly sumptuous feel in any bedroom. Treating yourself to world-class comfort? That’s definitely going to make your life better.
4. You’ll probably get less colds and flu.
Sleep scientists have proven that the health benefits of getting enough sleep are drastic. Or it might work better to look at it the other way – the health risks of not getting enough sleep can be catastrophic. On it’s most basic level, the implication for our health of being sleep deprived is that our immune systems will be depressed – or weakened. This is because, while we sleep, our bodies release a set of different hormones, neurochemicals, cytokines and even enzymes, which serve as a clean-upfrom the damage caused by processes we go through in our waking hours. Clever, isn’t it? So, if we’re regularly kept up by a below-average mattress that makes us feel too hot and uncomfortable to sleep, we’re probably more likely to pick up illnesses.
People often overlook the importance of enlisting the help of a good quality, well-designed mattress when it comes to defeating insomnia. But when you think about it, it just makes sense. Picture the scene – you get into bed, already worrying that you’re not going to be able to sleep. If your mattress is in any way uncomfortable, unsupportive or suffocating, you’re much less likely to find that idyllic space between your waking life and sleep in which you can just… drift. Get into a bed that envelops your entire body in next-level, cloud-light, just-cool-enough comfort, on the other hand, and you might just find yourself struggling to keep your eyes open.
