Do you get a great night’s sleep every single night? Of course not. I seriously doubt anyone does. But do you get a good night’s sleep at least most of the time? No? Then read on. The Nikken Sleep System may be what you’re looking for.
The most important part of getting a good night sleep is that you wake up feeling energized and ready for the new day. There are far too many people who don’t wake up feeling that way. Are you one of them?
A good night sleep of seven or eight hours is important for maintaining your health. Sleep is important for feeling awake and energized in the morning because while you are sleeping your body is able to digest and metabolize food to restore and recharge your cells. Sleep is important if you want to lose weight for the same reason. Sleep is also when your brain converts short-term memory to long-term memory.
Your Nikken Sleep System can help with that.
A leading authority on sleep, Dr. William C. Dement, said that
sleep is the most important factor in determing longevity. Sleep is more important for living a long life than the food you eat, the amount of exercise you get, or any genetic tendencies that you may have acquired from your parents.
In short, a good night sleep is absolutely essential. The problem is that most people don’t know how to get a good night sleep.
Nikken has recently added two new products to the sleep category.
First, the new Kenko Naturest Makura. When I started this back in 2006 Nikken had 2 contoured pillows, one softer and the other firmer. You had to either choose one or the other, unless you were willing to buy both. With the Makura you don’t have to choose. It is essentially 2 pillows in 1 with one side softer and the other side firmer. You don’t have to commit to either soft or firm anymore because you can have both. Of course the pillow includes the magnets and other technologies you would expect in a Nikken pillow.
The other new item is more of a re-introduction. I loved Nikken’s travel comforter and was very disappointed when it was discontinued a few years ago. Now it’s back as the Kenko Naturest Cozy Throw. It has the same temperature regulating technology used in the larger Nikken comforters but more portable. It also does not incorporate magnets, which means that it is machine washable and can be used by people who cannot use magnets, like people with pacemakers for example.
How to Get a Good Night Sleep
People either can’t get to sleep at night or they wake up during the night and can’t get back to sleep. Let’s look at a variety of areas that affect your ability to sleep and what to do about them.
Naturally Regulate Your Sleep Cycle
If you go to sleep and get up at about the same time every day, including weekends, then your body will get used to it so that you will naturally fall asleep at night and wake up in the morning.
Light plays a big part in telling your body that it should be awake or asleep. Get plenty of sunlight during the day, especially in the morning when you are waking up. Take off your sunglasses because your eyes tell your brain that it’s light out. Sit near a window at work if you can. Got outside during your lunch hour and after work to get more sunlight.
At night time, your eyes need to see it getting dark so that your brain knows it is getting time for sleep. Watching television or reading on a backlit device, like a tablet or computer screen, trick your brain into thinking that it is still daytime and that you should be awake.
When you do go to bed you want your room to be dark. You can use heavy curtain to block light at the windows. Remove or cover up any electronics that might light up your room. I use the Kenko PowerSleep Mask to block any light from my eyes. The magnets also have a relaxing effect that helps with sleep.
Sleep Comfortably with a Nikken Sleep System
The most important think to sleeping through the night is a comfortable sleep environment. If you aren’t comfortable then you are going to wake up. That means a surface that supports all of your body equally so that you don’t have any pressure points, and a temperature set so that you don’t get too cold or too hot.
The term “sleep system” sounds kind of scary, but the Nikken sleep system is definitely not. A “system” is a collection of components that work together to accomplish a specific task. In this case, it is a set of products that work together to help you get a great night sleep. It is a magnetic mattress topper, magnetic comforter and a magnetic pillow.
The Kenko Naturest mattress topper is a magnetic mattress pad made from natural latex. This gives your body the soft, yet supportive surface that lets you sleep through the night without the pressure points that will wake you up. It also naturally wicks away moisture so you don’t wake up in a pool of sweat. The cover and surface layer of latex breathes, allowing air to pass through and help you stay cool. The magnets in the pad help your body to further relax and recharge while you sleep.
The Kenko Dream and Dream Light Comforters contain magnets. The comforter’s job is to help regulate your body temperature so that you stay at the perfect temperature all night long. There are special fibers in the comforters that absorb ambient energy – light and heat – and reflect it back to you to keep you warm. Excess heat easily escapes through the comforter. The magnets help you to relax and recharge while you sleep.
The Naturest Pillow completes the system. It has the same magnets as the Naturest topper to provide relaxing energy to you head, neck and shoulders. It is filled with shredded natural latex for the same breathable support as the mattress topper. The magnets are attached to a soft core of denser latex that provides some neck support similar to a contoured pillow.
Nikken also offers a pillowcase that adds the same temperature-regulating fibers that are in the Dream and Dream Light comforters. The pillowcase matches the comforter too.
How to Order Your Nikken Sleep System
The magnetic sleep system components are all available individually by clicking on the pictures above or any picture on this page. Those individual products links will take you to a more specific page on this site or directly to the Nikken website where you can order or get more information by reading the quick reference flyers and brochure.
Obviously I’m not going to tell you that a Nikken sleep system will fix all of your sleep problems and I definitely can’t say that it will cure sleep apnea, wrestless leg syndrome, or any other condition that people may have. Those are medical claims reserved for doctors, and I’m not a doctor.
What I will say about a magnetic sleep system is that I have never slept better than I do on mine. When I lay down I fall asleep. That’s all there is to it. I don’t toss and turn looking for a comfortable spot and I generally wake up pretty close to where I started the night. I like it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
