Why should I invest in good quality mattresses?

Problems of sleep deprivation 

It is a well-known fact that sleep deprivation correlates with lower productivity levels. This is due to “the fatigue, short temper and lack of focus” (NHS, 2018) experienced by the individual. More importantly, a prolonged period of a lack of sleep can “affect your overall health and make you prone to serious medical conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes” (NHS, 2018). 

It is clear that a good night’s sleep is very important but what are the obstacles to achieving this? 

Causes of sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation can occur due to various reasons, some of which are outside a person’s control such as certain medical/psychiatric conditions (sleepfoundation, 2019) but some of which are within a person’s control. Specifically, lifestyle and a person’s sleeping habits have been shown to impact the quality of your sleep. I am sure that you must have heard that looking at your phone/laptop until late at night or even drinking caffeinated drinks after a certain hour can prevent you from falling asleep swiftly. Whilst this is true, people often overlook the importance of the bed itself.

Have you ever been camping? If yes, have you ever felt tired and sore when waking up? And why is that? Well, the odds are that you probably rested on some poor-quality mattress/sleeping bag and could feel the hard ground all night long thus disturbing your sleep. This example might be a bit extreme but it helps highlight the point that the quality of the surface you are sleeping on deeply impacts the quality of your sleep. Since a person spends on average 1/3 of their life in bed, it is clear that a good quality sleeping surface is crucial for your wellbeing. 

Bad mattresses: why you should avoid them

You can find mattresses anywhere and at any price point. So why should you invest in slightly more expensive but higher quality mattresses? Let me list you a number of problems related to a “bad” mattress and how King Koil helps you overcome these issues.

Firstly, bad mattresses can become a potential source for hygiene issues. In fact, research has shown that a person sweats on average “about a quarter of a litre of liquid each night, which goes straight to our mattress […] which leads to mould which leads to spores”. These can then attract dust mites “which can cause real problems for those who suffer from symptoms of asthma and can even exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema” (thesleepjudge, 2019). King Koil uses bamboo fabric to cover its mattresses which is a powerfully insulating material thus giving it a cool feeling when you touch it. In turn, this helps minimise sweat loss. Furthermore, bamboo has antibacterial properties which keeps you odour free (fibre2fashion, 2008). These features help ensure that you can sleep in the most hygienic conditions possible. 

Secondly, ill-designed mattresses can often be detrimental to your posture. King Koil’s mattresses are manufactured using a system of pocket springs which provide each of the seven zones of the body (head, shoulders, back, hips, lower back, thighs and lower legs) optimum support to help the spine stay in the proper position and be fully-supported all night long. Moreover, if you are sleeping with a partner of a different weight, pocket springs ensures that this weight is spread evenly thus helping significantly to reduce motion transfer across the bed which, as a result, guarantees undisturbed sleep. 

Last but not least, the perfect mattress for a person is very subjective. For example, one person might prefer a rigid mattress whilst another person might prefer a softer one. Most mattresses will be designed to find a middle-ground (i.e. not too rigid but not too soft) however this is not the optimal approach. At King Koil, we believe that a person should not have to make a compromise when choosing a mattress but should be able to choose the one that fits his/her needs the best. As such, we produce a variety of different mattresses (from soft to rigid), all of which are the top-quality for each category. 

In conclusion, purchasing a mattress can seem like a trivial thing for most people. However, this is far from the reality as sleep is one of the most important aspects of our lives. Choosing a mattress that fits your needs is crucial for your wellbeing and should not be seen as a simple purchase but rather as an investment for future years.

Snoring and Health Problems

Snoring and Health Problems

Snoring can be a sign of serious health problems
What causes snoring?

First things first snoring is that annoying sound people make when they are asleep, it occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate as you breathe. I have snored at some point and you probably do or might have or you have a partner that snores. Snoring according to Worapong Vejvechaneyom, M.D. is caused by a partially closed upper airway (nose and throat) which can disturb your sleep.

Snoring disturbs sleeping pattern of an individual and most often the partner too. It has unfortunately been linked to serious health issues such as hypertension, stroke, arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy (enlargement of the muscle tissue of the heart), congestive heart failure, diabetes and heart attacks.


Types of snoring

Now let’s talk about the type of snoring and you could recognise your or loved one snoring pattern, first one is Primary snoring which is a loud upper airway breathing sounds when one sleeps without episodes of apnea (cessation of breathing). This is not harmful however, it disturbs sleep for you and those around you.

Second one is Upper airway resistance and obstructive sleep apnea caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the rear of the throat collapses during sleep.

Symptoms

If you are experiencing these symptoms maybe it’s time to see the doctor or if you want my advice change your mattress, okay! Here we go; paused breathing during sleep, you can’t keep your eyes open in the day time,difficulty concentrating, morning headaches, sore throat when you wake up, restless sleep, Gasping or choking at night and High blood pressure.

Matthew Carter, PhD, a sleep specialist at Williams College believes there is a sleep crisis and it is caused by the need to prolong the day and put more hours of work. The side effects of this is people deprived of sleep enjoy the day less and they are not focused enough to be productive which defeats the objective. It will be important for future that researchers continue to explore the associations between job-related stressors, sleep quality, and workers’ health status.  Dr Carter is adamant that “You’re able to get more done on a good night’s sleep, not less.”

What can you do?

One thing you should do if you feel that snoring could threaten your health is to see a doctor, however, there are remedies that could work. Sleeping on a good mattress for one can help. Your mattress shophere can ultimately determine the position that you sleep in. As a result, it can cause or prevent snoring. We recommend an appropriately firm mattress such as King Koil Chiro Gold which has been certified by the International Chiropractors Association.

Sleeping patterns and productivity

Sleeping patterns and productivity

Sleeping too much or less determine can your productivity level

A study that was conducted in the American Journal of Health Promotion says that workers who sleep 10 or more hours might be experiencing lag in the workplace than those who sleep the recommended eight hours. says getting too much or too little sleep could result in impaired workplace productivity, however an average adult sleeps less than six hours a day which is not only linked to poor productivity but National Sleep Foundation of US, also weight gain, stress, and higher levels of illness which eventually translates into more days off due to illness. Oversleeping or undersleeping could be hazardous

Correlation between sleep and productivity

When looking at how sleep relates to productivity one has to examine a few factors such as how diet and exercise, lifestyle behaviours, and daily stress affect sleep patterns and quality.it has been observed that employees who are getting five or fewer hours of sleep each night generally are off work more often than employees who report getting a healthy 8 hours of sleep and those that sleep more hours than necessary. But then it is a researched (studies in Europe and Japan) fact that oversleeping is caused by “overwork”.

Is sleep crisis our culture?

Matthew Carter, PhD, a sleep specialist at Williams College believes there is a sleep crisis and it is caused by the need to prolong the day and put more hours of work. The side effects of this is people deprived of sleep enjoy the day less and they are not focused enough to be productive which defeats the objective.

Pocket springs are individual springs wrapped in pockets of cotton or other materials, they are not interconnected by any metal wires. They can give support to the various curves of our body and help align our back as we sleep. Pocket springs can move individually because of the ability to reduce movements. The main advantage of the pocket spring mattress is that it prevents movement while we sleep, you are not disturbed by tosses and turns of your partner. It has durable materials and provides greater comfort. blood circulation becomes better, and sleep comfort increases.

Pocket spring mattress is the best option and better value for money. Bonnell spring mattresses are better avoided due to their intense movement and users complain about feeling the springs at the edge of the bed. How do you know the mattress is Bonnell or pocket spring mattress the easiest and fun way to test if you have or are looking at a Bonnell spring or pocket sprung mattress is to slap the mattress on one side, while a friend or partner has their hand on the other side of the mattress. So, in a Bonnell spring mattress, when pressure is applied to one side of the mattress, it is felt on all sides of the mattress. At king Koil all our mattresses are spring pocket and compressed for easy delivery, our mattresses are superior by far.
