Memory Foam Mattresses – Sweet Dreams

If you want to dream at night, you’ll need to ensure you sleep deeply – which is where memory foam mattresses can help. 

If you can’t get a good night’ sleep you won’t fall into a deep enough sleep to dream. Our dreams happen during REM sleep, but if we are constantly tossing and turning all night it can feel like we haven’t slept a wink. Memory foam mattresses can significantly reduce tossing and turning thanks to the fact that they mould to the body and relieve pressure points. This means that memory foam mattresses support your body making conditions more conducive to deep sleep. With the memory foam mattress you won’t be woken by bumps or lumps in your mattress – it doesn’t sag and there are no noisy springs.

Memory foam mattresses – Developed by NASA 

Memory foam mattresses are made from visco elastic foam – a material that was developed by NASA for astronauts who had to experience G-forces. It reacts to the body and is heat sensitive so it gets softer when you lie down, creating the best sleeping conditions for you to fall into REM sleep. Memory foam mattresses also distribute weight so that pressure is evenly distributed. Longer periods of undisturbed sleep mean you are more likely to experience the benefits REM sleep.

Sleep occurs in cycles of around 90 to 110 minutes. Non REM sleep has four stages: 

  • Light sleep – when you are still half awake and are easily awakened
  • True sleep, which lasts around 20 minutes where your heart and breathing slow down.
  • Deep sleep – the brain produces delta waves and enters a deep sleep characterised by rhythmic breathing.
  • REM sleep is the next stage. Memory foam mattresses can help you sleep deeply and enter REM where dreams begin. Rapid eye movement occurs after about 70 to 90 minutes after we fall asleep. Breathing and heart rate increase as the mind becomes very active.

Memory foam mattresses for undisturbed sleep 

If you are sleeping on memory foam mattresses and are experiencing a good undisturbed night’s sleep you can expect to go through this sleep cycle around three to five times.
