Your Mattress and Bedding May Be Keeping You Up at Night

Tossing and turning is one of the worst things in life. There isn’t anything worse than lying in bed all night desperately trying to fall asleep. Your mattress could be the culprit to your sleeping problems. Or, it could also be your bedding. You probably never imagined that did you?

Yes, your mattress and/or your bedding may be keeping you up at night. It is important to remember that you are not alone. Millions of people all around the world are just like you. The good news is that because so many people are suffering, just like you, there is bound to be a solution that will fit your individual needs.

Most people don’t really take a careful inventory of their room. They bought their mattress years and years ago because it was “a good deal.” Some people been sleeping on the same mattress for 20+ years. Here are some helpful tips to get you back on track.

1. How old is your mattress? The Better Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress every 5 years. Chances are, you never have replaced your mattress or haven’t replaced it enough times.

2. How big is your mattress? Is your mattress large enough for your needs? Do you have the room you need to stretch out in your bed? Can you turn comfortably in your bed? If you share your bed with your spouse, you need to make sure that you both have enough room.

3. Does your mattress support you well enough? If you have been sleeping on the same mattresses for over 7 years, it is seriously time to reconsider. That mattress cannot be supporting you well enough. And, as you get older, your body has different needs and needs more support. Chuck the old mattress and get a new mattress that supports you.

4. How comfortable is your mattress? Did you know that you could actually sleep on a mattress that relieves pressure points instead of creating them? Yes, innerspring mattresses tend to create pressure points and leave you feeling achy the next day. Memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses relieve these pressure points and actually leave you feeling well rested. Imagine that.

5. How is your pillows and bedding? Is your bedding comfortable or itchy and scratchy? Is your pillow too firm or too soft? You might feel like Goldilocks for a little while, but it will be worth it. Carefully choose bedding that will help you relax instead of keeping you up at night.

Having the right sleeping environment is crucial for a good night’s sleep. Take a careful inventory of your mattress, your bedding and your pillow. If something isn’t right, fix it. You can finally get a good night’s sleep.

Can a Mattress Really be Certified Organic?

Can a Mattress Really be Certified Organic?

Do you remember when the ‘organic’ movement began? The 1990s introduced a new form of organic consumerism. Organic products have even become more popular in recent years. People who can afford it only buy organic products. These products range from milk, dairy, and produce to clothing and mattresses.

By definition, organic products are more sustainable and more environmentally friendly than conventional products. Consumers look for and appreciate organic products more than conventional products because of their potential health benefits. Organic products contain fewer chemicals and pesticides than regular products.

There has been a dramatic increase in demand for organic bedding. People want to use mattresses, blankets, sheets, pillows, etc that are all-natural. Companies have begun pushing these organic products quite heavily. But, it is really possible for a mattress to be certified organic?

If you are looking to only use 100% organic materials, it is also important to note what it takes for mattresses to be organic certified. Mattresses can be certified organic if they contain mostly organic materials. However, these mattresses do not have to contain exclusively organic materials.

For instance, you can’t have an ‘organic’ innerspring mattresses because these mattresses contain steel coils. Steel coils simply cannot be organic. Polyurethane can’t be organic either because it is composed entirely of synthetic chemicals. There are two types of latex mattresses: talalay and natural. Talalay latex mattresses contain 30% synthetic latex. Thus, talalay latex cannot be organic.

Natural latex is a bit of a different story. Natural latex mattresses are often called 100% natural. Most times, this isn’t quite the case. Although the material may be 100% natural, the process of manufacturing latex mattresses take away some of the organic characteristics. Ammonia is added to the milky sap of the rubber tree. This prevents coagulation of the rubber. Although the ammonia is removed later, it still prevents latex from being completely certifiably organic.

Other additives are used the making latex mattresses. Soaps and curing agents are always used. A latex mattress manufacturer would have to undergo a rigorous inspection process to ensure that each mattress is certified organic. Just because most natural latex mattresses cannot be considered ‘organic’ does not take away their benefits. These mattresses are by far the best and most natural sleep surface on the market.

Here Is What A Floating Bed Looks Like

Doesn’t this chic bed look inviting? This innovative bed is called The Float Bed. New Zealand designer David Trubridge recently unveiled the float bed. David’s company, Okooko, is known for providing “green” mattresses and furniture. Okooko only offers environmentally friendly products.

The Float Bed is a modern twist on the traditional canopy bed. It is made from natural latex, bamboo and wool. The natural latex mattress is sure to provide an optimal sleeping experience, while also providing environmental benefits.

David has an interesting philosophy about what a mattress should be; he concludes that beds and mattresses need to be “more romantic, and more flexible in their design and application.” His vision for The Float Bed was elaborate. The Float Bed can be used and/or moved anywhere. The shape of the bed provides a cocoon-like atmosphere which provides a feeling of security. It also shelters the sleeper from the elements and creates a private sleep space.

The Float Bed has already become extremely popular for those that can afford the steep price tag – this designer bed costs $25,000. I guess that people who want the freedom of sleeping anywhere, even on a soft blanket of water, are willing to pay a lot of money to experience such joys!

However, for those of you that just choked on the price, you might be interested in knowing that we also make a mattress made from 100% natural latex, organic bamboo and organic juma wool which depending on the size (Twin – Cal King) will only cost you between $1000-$2000 for everything including delivery! So, if you want to sleep on a natural mattress but can’t “float” the $25,000 price tag for “the float bed” take a look at our 9″ All Natural Talalay Latex Mattress here
