While we sleep miracles happen. Body and mind work harmoniously so that we can live a better life. All you have to do is sleep.Hästens will change the way you sleep forever with the finest beds, mattresses and bedding accessories in the world. Six generations of handcrafted beds made from ethically-sourced pure natural materials.
Hästens has always been driven by a passion for sleep and the benefits it brings to body and soul. It’s sleep that makes the difference to life, a natural process that cannot be replicated, bought over a counter or swallowed in a pill. You cannot cheat your way to perfect sleep but there are things that you can do to understand why it’s important and ensure you give yourself the best chance of a great night’s sleep.
There are several variables which affect our ability to enjoy a quality night’s sleep. The bed is one of course, but the sleeping environment and your own state of being also have an impact on getting a perfect sleep.
The Platform For Perfect Sleep
Choose a bed that gives optimum balance between proper support and comfort; one that lets your spine rest without undue stress. And, it pays to try your potential new Hästens bed in store for a good period of time, with the help of their sleep advisors. They’ll be able to see exactly which level of support you need, while you focus on how each bed feels.
We recommend that you develop your own sleep routine to help ease your mind and soul into sleep. Begin around 30 minutes before you’ll go to bed and take your time as you go through the things you’d normally do before bed. Brushing your teeth, setting your alarm, stacking the dishes… You want to just slow your body down and clear your head of those thoughts from the day so you’ll go to your bed relaxed and calm.
Your bedroom itself needs to be dark, a factor that activates the release of the sleep hormone melatonin at higher levels. It’s also wise to invest in a bed large enough that you can stretch and turn without coming into contact with its edges. Hästens unique spring systems mean that the movements you make (and those of your sleeping partner) will be isolated, so you’ll be undisturbed regardless of how wriggly those next to you are.
Bump In The Night
During sleep, bursts of high-frequency brain activity produce “sleep spindles” (they look a bit like a full spindle on a spinning wheel). These spindles block noise and other sensory information from being registered in the brain while we sleep. As we age we produce fewer of these spindles, and thus are more susceptible to noises in the sleeping environment. If you notice that you are waking up more frequently than you used to, you might want to experiment by trying earplugs or, in extreme cases, looking into acoustic insulation tiles or solutions.Change the way you sleep with Hastens.
