Hästens: Smart Sleeping

Sleeping is one of the most important things you do. Does it require a luxurious piece of furniture to satisfy this human need? Of course not.

Although Hästens builds luxury beds, they are not excessive. There is a lot in a Hästens bed, but every little detail has a function: to increase the conditions for as deep a sleep as nature intended for humans.

By creating a natural sleep environment, they would like to bring you back to your roots as it were. Hästens is your oasis of natural materials in an artificial world.

There are also 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:

We recommend a bed that gives optimum balance between proper support and comfort; one that lets your spine rest without undue stress. If possible, always try out your new bed to ensure it meets your needs. At Hästens you can try out a potential bed instore 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.

Sleep routine

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.

Light Sleeping

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.

Wake up. Do Something.

It’s not just going to sleep at a regular time that optimizes the body’s circadian rhythm. What you do when you wake up will pay dividends too. Chronobiological (the study of circadian rhythm) research reveals that the body really benefits from waking up and activating itself as soon as possible. Some light exercise to get the blood pumping or a brisk walk outside will have you firing on all cylinders in no time. Repeat the process and you’ll find your waking up is almost as eagerly anticipated as going to bed.
