Would You Like To Sleep In A Womb?

One hotel in Shoreditch has taken ‘sleeping like a baby’ to another level. They have worked closely with Hope Bastine, a sleep psychologist to create hotel rooms that resemble the experience of being in the womb.

The beds themselves have a cocoon style, resembling the walls of the womb and the room is coloured and structured in a way which is meant to help encourage positivity, relaxation and REM-rich sleep.


Inspired by babies…


But what made The Zed Rooms think about the womb in particular? It’s not as random as it first sounds, as they looked at the sleep of babies in the womb during the later stages of pregnancy.

They discovered that during the 2 weeks of pregnancy, a baby dramatically increases REM sleep. In the final week of birth, REM sleep reaches a lifetime high of approximately 12 hours a day.

“The rooms also feature restorative scents and colours that relax muscles, invoke calm and mimic the moonlight; air cleansing soporific plants to eliminate toxins and healing background harmonies to unwind”.

If this wasn’t relaxing enough, they also offer yoga mats and a tablet using well loved app ‘Calm’. Every part of the room is tailor made to evoke specific emotions and to unlock your true sleep potential.


How much for a good sleep?


If you want to stay in this room for a night, you’ll have to pay £190 per night for the pleasure. So… how much are you willing to pay for a good nights sleep?

Everything You Need To Know About Pocket Spring Mattresses

Considering how long a mattress should last you? And how much of your time that you spend on it? Opting for high quality, handmade pocket sprung mattresses is always a better option than a cheap mattress. Pocket springs are a fundamental part of high-quality mattresses. Also, if you’re looking into buying a new one, it’ll help to fully understand what they are. So what exactly is a pocket sprung mattress?

Pocket Sprung Mattresses

Quite simply, a pocket sprung mattress has the springs sewn into individual fabric pockets. The surrounding fabrics function like shock absorbers. Essentially, this reduces bounce and increases the mattress’s firmness for increased comfort. Additionally, these mattresses provide much better support for your body, as each of the coils absorbs your weight individually. This allows the contours of your body to be uniformly supported.

Pocket Springs

Essentially, pocket springs themselves are rows of small springs, which are each housed separately from each other in individual fabric pockets.

The Benefits

These mattresses were created to help people suffering with back pain and bad joints. Providing them with a firm mattress offering targeted support for the body. This support, which helps to reduce pressure point pain, helps people to get a good nights sleep and some much needed pain relief. More importantly, pocket sprung mattresses are also great if there’s a weight or size difference between you and your partner. Furthermore, individual springs will work to take the weight of both of you individually. No more being lifted or rolled over!

Is a Memory Foam Mattress the Comfiest Way To Sleep?

It is an irrefutable fact that the amount and quality of sleep that we get plays a big part in how healthy and productive we feel. In many ways, sleep is the most important part of the day – for our bodies anyway. It is a much needed opportunity to set aside the physical and mental stresses of the day, rest up the muscles and the bones, and get ready for the day to come.
If you are not quite sure how much we need our sleep, you only need to try spending a single day without it. You will quickly grow more irritable, find it hard to focus on simple tasks, and your brain will crave substitute energy in the form of sugar and caffeine. In other words, you will be counting the seconds until you climb back into a warm and comfy bed.
The question is, what can you do to maximise the quality of your sleep? Does the secret to great rest always lie with early bedtimes and a strict schedule or can you cheat your way to peaceful nights with the help of a memory foam mattress? This guide to some of the best reasons why you should invest in memory foam has all of the answers.

Constant Support

If you are on the hunt for top quality mattresses in the Peterborough area, it is a good idea to consider buying a memory foam product. One of the most important reasons for this is the fact that memory foam provides flawless support. It can be invaluable for anybody who suffers from neck or spinal issues, because it is perfectly weighted and balanced – memory foam is not too hard or too soft.

No More Pressure Points

According to recent studies, memory foam mattresses have the ability to reduce fidgeting and the need to toss and turn by as much as 80%. This is because the material eradicates pressure points; these are points on the mattress at which parts of the body are held lower than the rest. Over time, standard mattresses develop lots of little pressure points where the heaviest body parts naturally lie. With memory foam, however, this does not happen, because the mattress moulds to the unique shape of the sleeper.

Always Kind to the Spine

For affordable memory foam mattresses in the Peterborough area, come and browse the broad selection of products on offer at Peter H Gammons. You can pick from top brands, like Sweet Dreams, Dorlux, and Shakespeare Beds, so that your journey to the land of nod is always a satisfying one. If you are committed to investing in a mattress which will offer you long term support and spinal protection, memory foam is the way to go. It holds the spine in its natural alignment, rather than forcing it to lie linear. This means that the user can enjoy full lumbar support.

A Guarantee of Quality

The typical memory foam mattress will last significantly longer than a standard product. In fact, if you pick your mattress carefully and look after it properly, it should easily reach fifteen years or more without fuss or problems. There are very few household items which can offer this type of longevity, especially ones which are used as intensively as a mattress. You are advised to opt for a product which comes with a warranty of at least 5-7 years.
