The Awesome Journey of Sleep from Grass to Latex

Over the last countless years, while man has continued to invent, discover and explore – what hasn’t changed is the need to retire and relax by way of sleeping. That’s because our body require as much sleep today, as much as it required in the time of Adam and Eve. The thing about sleeping is that while we sleep, the body repairs itself to prepare for the next day or next activity. That’s because sleep rejuvenates us, enables better thinking, relaxes heart muscles, reduces stress, betters immunity, and restores several body functions. While the fact that we need sleep hasn’t changed, the surface we sleep on has evolved significantly over time. Here’s a look at them.

History books suggest that the Early Man slept on a small round nest made of grass and other soft materials.

As human civilization evolved, it’s said that the Egyptians feared and respected sleep and slept flat on their back, while Romans slept in small rooms with tiny beds.

Moving on to the Middle Ages, families often slept on one massive heat-conserving bed. Around the same time, bedframes started getting increasingly ornate in China.

With Industrial Revolution, private bedrooms became a standard amenity for most classes of the society and so, private beds.

Stepping into the 19th century, metal bedsprings became common, and during the same time the world saw the arrival of waterbeds.

And somewhere in the 20th century, people witnessed the introduction of memory foam mattresses.
