Memory Foam Beds and Hypersomnia


Do you sleep too much? Fewer people complain of hypersomnia than mention their insomnia, but that doesn't mean it's not a problem. Hypersomnia is a situation where you sleep all the time (or at least it feels like it) but you wake up feeling exhausted. Just like insomnia, this lack of restful sleep can make you feel stressed and lead to illness, problems with coordination, and emotional problems. It's a real problem, even if many people don't recognize this.

Hypersomnia is also caused by many of the same things that insomnia is. A poor night's rest and a bad sleep schedule are just as likely to result in too much, low quality sleep as they are to result in no sleep at all. The same kinds of treatment can help, too. A good sleep routine and a truly comfortable bed, which provides the kind of support you need, are important if you want to get over hypersomnia.

Foam beds might not be the first thing you think about when you consider treatments for your sleep problems. However, they're a really effective method of dealing with them. Memory foam is a great mattress material. It may be expensive, but it's worth it if you feel rested in the morning. These mattresses help you improve the quality of your sleep, and give you better support through the night. That means your sleep will be deeper and more effective over all.

You won't suffer from all those little aches and pains you'd feel on a lower quality mattress. The switch to memory foam means your spine, neck and joints are all being properly supported, independent of one another. You won't find yourself sinking into a pit in the mattress. Instead, the foam conforms to your body, offering comfort and a good night's sleep. That means no oversleeping, and no nightlong pain. You'll wake up earlier and feel much more rested when you do.

Memory foam can have a surprisingly good effect on the way you sleep. It's not the only key to avoiding hypersomnia, of course. You'll also need to take care with your schedule, waking up and going to sleep about the same time every day. Avoid naps, unless they're part of your daily schedule. They can throw off your sleep cycle even more, making it hard to figure out when to sleep and when to wake. Avoid depressants and stimulants right before bed, and make sure you relax before bed. This will help you sleep restfully, and keep you from sleeping too long.

Hypersomnia is a real problem, even though many people don't recognize it. If you just keep sleeping because you need more rest, it might be because you aren't getting the right kind of sleep. Good habits and a good quality memory foam mattress can do a lot to normalize your sleep schedule, and can help you enjoy your night a lot more. Take the time to find out more about what a memory foam mattress can do for you, and get a good, short night's sleep at last. No one should feel tired all the time, and no one should have to lose their whole day trying to get some rest. Look at your sleep habits and your bedding, and make a change that'll give you lasting relief.

I am a manufacturer of meomry foam mattresses and the warmth you feel are due to people using the mattresses incorrectly. Memory foam has an open cell design that allows air to flow through the foam itself. Most people think that this will be enough, but it isn't. You need to use breathable sheets and/or mattress pads with meomry foam mattresses to alleviate any gathering of heat. Memory foam will actually reduce excess heat. Let us know if this answered your questions and let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you.

I have found the best mattress to be air an mattsesres. The foam ones seem to wrap around you and become uncomfortable and spring mattsesres dont give where they need to give.
