Did you have any good dreams last night? Assuming the average person lives to the age of 75, did you know that person will have spent a whopping 6.25 years dreaming?! Pretty incredible. We still don’t know all that much about dreaming. Though many theories exist, it seems that the more we learn, the more questions are raised, and the more old theories get altered or debunked altogether. But what we do know is, if you enjoy paying a visit to Dream-world each night, REM sleep is the key to spending the most time there; And the key to REM sleep is deep, undisturbed slumber. One way to help ensure you are receiving deep REM sleep is with a comfortable mattress that suits your needs. Tossing and turning or waking up because you are warm or have uncomfortable joints is a surefire way to break your sleep cycle and decrease your REM sleep potential. Memory foam mattresses are great for cradling you in consistent contouring to prevent tossing and turning and relieve pressure on joints, though traditional memory foam tends to trap body heat and sleep hot. Gel infused memory foam helps with heat retention, so if you want to be sure you are getting your ~2 hours of dreams each night, and your 6+ years of dreaming over the course of your lifetime, consider a gel-infused memory foam mattress such as Serta’s iComfort series for maximum REM sleep!
