A lot of people live a challenging life. For the last couple of generations, humanity has been pursuing goals of economic growth, and we’ve been finding satisfaction primarily in professional success. It is no bad thing to wish to grow. However, there is a toll on the colourful life we live, there is a tax on our body and mind pay from the excitement of professional frenzy. A lot of people pay for professional fulfilment with anxiety or loss of health. Fortunately for our generation, we have started to listen to wise people who show us how to live mindfully, and make the wisdom of happiness accessible to the internet generation through modern inventions. At Luxury Eight we are fans of Andy Peddicombe who popularised meditation with a simple iPhone app. We also love Dave Asprey for his insightful research on diet, and for making the most popular drug – coffee – a healthy drink. Following this trend we want to add the third necessary point to the Triangle of Happiness: What Andy did for the way we think, and Dave for the way we eat, we’d like to do for the way we sleep.
Many sleep problems start with resting in the wrong fabrics. Although we all spend one third of our lives sleeping, we often pay little attention to the quality of the bed sheets we sleep in. For the past year and a half, we have been researching fabrics that give the best comfort for your sleep. People in ancient Egypt 5,000 years ago already knew that pure linen was good for you and your body. Egyptians used it mainly for clothing and bed linen. But now we know that it also comforts you in the tech-savvy and stressful, modern world. There are three main benefits of high-quality pure linen which convinced us that choosing it would bring happiness.
1. YOU LOVE KEEPING YOUR IPHONE NEXT TO YOUR PILLOW? IT DOESN’T NEED TO BE A BAD THING!
Pure linen protects your body from damaging electromagnetic frequencies, especially when near electronic devices, computers, Wi-Fi, cell phones, etc. This is because linen produces frequencies with which it repairs resonance state in the body’s cells caused by modern technology. Nobel prize winning Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg identified signature frequency numbers of the average human at 70-90. That means, the higher the atomic frequency of fabrics, the better for the human body. The atomic frequency measurement of linen fabric measures 5,000. In comparison the frequency of cotton measures 40 and organic unbleached cotton measures 100, which are not healing materials, but they don’t harm the health. Synthetic fabrics such as polyester, with a signature frequency of 15, drain the body of energy. Silk fabric only measures 10 units of energy, which would fail to support health in the human body.
2. LINEN CREATES THE OPTIMAL SLEEP ENVIRONMENT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, KEEPING YOU COOL IN SUMMER AND WARM IN WINTER.
Pure linen feels cool and smooth to the touch. It also has high air permeability and exhibits thermo-regulating qualities, meaning it warms you up in winter and cools you down in summer. Pure linen has been also shown to promote deep and relaxing sleep because it actually helps repair the body by harmonising with the cells. Researchers from the Institute of Natural Fibres in Poznan, Poland, found that you will fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping in and on pure linen! All because cells in flax, the plant used to make linen, are very similarly constructed to human cells, producing a beneficial effect on the human body and meaning the human cell is capable of completely dissolving flax cells.
3. IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR MIND, IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR BODY.
Our research revealed that pure linen is perfect for sensitive skin and so for children. It is non-allergenic, non-irritating and non-sensitising! It also has hygroscopific qualities, meaning it has high moisture absorption. Pure linen can absorb water up to 20% of its weight and still give the impression of being dry. It does not contain heavy metals and even improves your skin condition. It goes without saying that pure linen is 100% natural, biodegradable and waste-free. It is a fully natural fibre which allows you to get the best sleep, which you deserve.
Getting a good night’s sleep is simpler than you think. It starts with what’s closest to your body: bed linen. Trust Luxury Eight and make your mind and body happy!
