Have you ever wondered how you are able to remember something from when you were a baby? Our brain’s ability to store memories and then recall them at a moment’s notice is one of the most remarkable capabilities of the human body. It helps enhance our survival instincts (or that all-knowing “gut” feeling), creates magical moments that we’ll look back on decades from now when we are at the annual holiday party and laugh (or cringe), and assists us in creating positive and negative experiences that shape our character (or at least the future self we want to be that is). Without our memories, we wouldn’t be the unique people we are today.
Fortunately, our memories are not the only thing that has begun shaping our future lives’ as we know it. For example, technology has become a more prominent evolution within our lives. As technological advances continue to revolutionize the way humans’ function, scientists have been developing ways through which to make our lives even easier; or at least more comfortable. A great deal of energy has been devoted to scientific research determined to create products that replicate aspects of the human memory. One such example is the development of smarter sleep surfaces.
Memory Foam: Changing Sleep For Millions of Insomniacs Everywhere
The creation of memory foam began in the 1960s, when NASA developed it to be created into airplane seating. No one then knew how significant this creation would become, but now memory foam is found in many everyday products, from pillows and mattress, to office supplies and footwear. Take a close look at your office chair – it is likely that it has a memory foam component.
Always wanted to sleep on a cloud? Among the many notable features of memory foam, its high-density foam composition is both highly soft and energy absorbent, making it the best choice for getting optimal sleep.
Still not convinced? Memory foam mattresses have several significant differences from regular mattresses. To help determine if a memory foam mattress is a good fit for your sleep needs, we’ve compiled a list of facts to highlight the unique qualities of this space-age sleep surface.
“Fits Like a Glove”
The high-density foam composition not only makes you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, but it completely morphs itself to fit your body perfectly. Mattresses constructed of memory foam actively mold to your body in response to heat and pressure, allowing the surface to evenly distribute body weight when occupied and return to its original shape once pressure is removed.
“Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold”
According to WebMD, your body temperature can affect how well you sleep. Memory foam beds are manufactured using a temperature-sensitive material, which allows the mattress to adjust your body heat and weight. As your body temperature increases, the mattress becomes softer. Too cold? The memory foam has the ability to retain heat, especially during the winter months. Can’t stand heat? Some memory foam mattresses have cooling features that will help you relax even when it’s 100 degrees outside.
For All Life’s Aches and Pains
If you can believe it, there are medicinal benefits to investing in a memory foam mattress. By switching mattresses you could be relieving pain, body aches and soreness, as well as helping your body to recover more quickly from injuries. According to LiveStrong.com, this is achieved by the material’s ability to displace pressure from points of pain on your body. Areas in pain have a slightly higher temperature than the rest of the body, and memory foam detects these differences and molds to the body accordingly by adding or reducing pressure to the area.
For the Wheeze and the Sneezes: Allergy Friendly
According to Environment, Health and Safety Online, a mattress can accumulate over millions of bacteria and dust particles. However, due to the mattresses composition, it can prevent allergens from embedding themselves within the mattress.
It Will Feel Like Your Partner Isn’t Even There
Sleep next to someone who tosses and turns? Those sleepless nights are over! Memory foam absorbs any movement on the surface of the mattress due to its consistency. There will be no need to fight over sides anymore!
