In today’s fast-paced world, there seems to be one thing we are all in pursuit of. That is, of course, the feeling of being well-rested. In order to attain this somewhat unattainable feeling, people all over the world are spending their paychecks on quick fixes in the form of multiple daily hits of caffeine. This tends to succeed in helping us appear bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, at least until the mid-day slump hits.
Here at YCB, we’re strong advocates for the power of a delicious cup of coffee. However, we strongly believe that whilst an oat flat white can certainly enhance a morning, it should not be solely relied on in order to function as a well-rested being. The same applies to weekend retreats in the countryside, as well as tranquil tropical holidays. In fact, the feeling of being well-rested may not require you to escape the comfort of your own bedroom at all. That’s right, it may all be a lot simpler than you think. Introducing Simba, the experts in the science of sleep.
What we truly require is a good night’s sleep, the kind that our high-tech fitness watches tell us that we haven’t achieved in weeks. So how can we accomplish this covetable uninterrupted slumber?
Well, there are, of course, multiple factors that can affect our sleep, the stuffy heat of a London summer being one of them. However, even when we are long into autumn we can often experience that dreaded tossing and turning late into the night. According to Simba, “no matter the time of year, the ideal sleeping temperature is between 15.5-19.5 degrees celsius” and what’s more, your bedroom should always be the coolest room in the house for optimum rest.
Here in the UK, our homes aren’t quite fit for these soaring heatwaves and rising nighttime temperatures that we are experiencing, and the vast majority of us don’t have the luxury of air-con just yet. In the meantime, something as simple as investing in an airy, cool mattress may be just the solution for those nights spent overheating under the blanket. For example, Simba’s Hybrid Mattress is made with Simbatex foam, an ‘open cell’ foam which allows thirty times the airflow of regular memory foam.
The brand’s sleep scientists have infused the mattress with a naturally occurring mineral called graphite which draws heat away from your body. In comparison to the dense, non-breathable, and synthetic material that’s used in memory foam mattresses, Simbatex foam will regulate your temperature and in turn, help you to achieve that deep, high-quality sleep.
Another obstacle that lies in the way between us and a deep slumber comes in the form of our beloved partners. Sharing a bed with someone is no easy task- especially if your other half is one who tends to fidget in their sleep. Thankfully for us (and the future of our relationships), Simba’s sleep experts have compiled a solution to this common woe, in the form of Aerocoil® springs. These are tiny “cones of comfort” that are much smaller and slimmer than the typical bed spring. They’re designed to give you the support you need whilst being so fine you won’t feel a single one.
Each one of these springs (there’s up to 5,000 in a Simba mattress) flexes gently in response to both your and your partner’s movements. This means personalised support for each of you, without disturbing the other.
What does this mean for your relationship? Well, of course, a better night of sleep makes for a happier you, and in turn, a happier relationship!
In conclusion, we often delve into our sleep insights, learning of the multiple cycles that require varying durations and depths. However, this knowledge is truly futile if you’re attempting to sleep on a mattress that is dipped, unstable, and in dire need of replacement. Granted, there are plenty of factors that play a role in our quality of sleep. However, if you’re truly seeking that perky, well-rested feeling on a day-to-day basis, there is one simple factor that can work wonders and one which is entirely within your control. It’s time to invest in a Simba mattress – You deserve it.
