First Look at the Nook!

Thursday, 21 May 2015

Our fundraising efforts for the brilliant Nook Appeal are heating up! The Nook Appeal, run by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), aims to build a brand new children’s hospice in Norfolk that will provide vital care and support for life-threatened children and their families.

Mattressman have pledged £25,000 to the Nook Appeal, with £10,000 of that already donated upfront. To help raise the rest of the money, we’ve created the wonderful Nook mattress, designed to be supportive and comfortable for both children and adults!

The Nook mattress certainly looks fantastic, finished with the Nook colours on the edges and handles, and a fun butterfly pattern stitched on the top. Not only does this look great, but it creates a more plush sleeping surface and holds all the fillings firmly in place. With luxurious hypoallergenic fillings, the Nook mattress is a terrific choice for anyone with allergies. And while the comfortable fibre fillings used in the Nook mattress are soft enough that children will be able to sleep soundly, the traditional open coil spring unit is fully supportive for people of all weights and age, and with a Medium firmness rating it offers a great night’s sleep for adults as well. That’s why we make the Nook mattress in sizes from small single to king size, so there’s something to suit every room and every kind of sleeper!

Beware Mattress Van Scams!

Thursday, 14 May 2015

A new mattress is the ultimate treat, and a great investment! A good quality mattress might last you as long as 10 years, and when you buy a new one, you are investing in your own wellbeing, as a good night’s sleep is key to both your physical and mental health.

That means you want to make sure you actually are getting a brand new mattress. Unfortunately, “van scams”, in which old mattresses are re-covered to look new and then sold from vans or in markets, are very common, and with the supposedly bargain prices on offer, sometimes they can be tempting.

Want to Sleep Better? Work Out!

Thursday, 30 April 2015

Last weekend was the London Marathon! Congratulations to everyone who took part! Whether marathons are your thing or whether you prefer your exercise to be a little less intense, there is a strong relationship between exercise and sleep. Not only do you need to make sure you get enough sleep before you exercise (especially if you’re planning a marathon!) but regular exercise can help you to sleep better. Along with a balanced diet, these are the most important factors in maintaining your health.

Studies have found that over 60% of people have a better night’s sleep after exercising during the day. It’s clear why you should make sure you’re well-rested before exercising, but how can exercise help you to sleep better?

It's National Stop Snoring Week!

Thursday, 23 April 2015

If you’ve been rudely kept from your slumber during the night by a snoring partner — or if you’re the snorer yourself — you’ll know that snoring can be pretty annoying. But did you know that beyond that, it can be a health concern? This week is National Stop Snoring Week, and the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association is raising awareness about sleep apnoea and the possible health risks it can present.

Happy Allergy Awareness Week!

Monday, 20 April 2015

It’s Allergy Awareness Week! As the weather gets warmer, you have a whole host of new allergens to contend with. Not only does hay fever start to rear its ugly head around this time of year, but pesky dust mites can find their way into your home, causing dust allergies that can really disrupt your sleep. Dust mites can be a problem the whole year round, but they prefer warm, humid environments, and a dust allergy can make other allergy symptoms, including hay fever symptoms, much worse.

Rising Stars: Healthosleep's Memory Foam Mattresses

Thursday, 26 March 2015

Did you know that memory foam has its origins in space travel? That’s right, one of the bedding industry’s most comfortable components was created by NASA! Originally created to provide better crash protection and seat cushioning for pilots, memory foam has since been used for sports equipment, medical purposes, and of course, mattresses.

But up-and-coming manufacturers Healthosleep want to get back to memory foam’s space roots, as demonstrated by their brand new Space Collection! These are top-of-the-range memory foam mattresses, each containing at least 75mm of high-density memory foam for outstanding comfort and support.
