Ditch Your Bed, Get A Hammock

According to some new research in Switzerland, we should ditch our mattresses and start sleeping in hammocks. Besides making us feel like we are on vacation in the tropics, the gentle rocking motion of the hammock,was found to inspire quicker, deeper, more high-quality sleep in adults. The motion increased “sleep spindles,” a certain kind of brain activity which has been linked to better memory and brain plasticity. No need to get all technical, I am so into installing a hammock in my bedroom, although I may be scared of falling out of it in the middle of the night. Maybe I’ll just cover my floor with a layer of fake sand. [NPR]Want to contact the writer of this post? {encode=”ami@thefrisky.com” title=”Email her”}!
