Clinomania, or as we like to call it “sleeping like a cat’, is described as the “excessive desire to stay in bed” as opposed to the desire to sleep all day, which most of us do from time to time.

Here’s an interesting point-of-view from someone called Dr. Denny: “I have clinomania or I am a clinomaniac...I love to sleep. Love it. It's practically my favorite thing in the world. Unfortunately this means that I am terrible at getting up in the mornings. I have to do it every day, so you'd think I'd have mastered it by now, but no. Every day I stay in bed till the last possible second, and then have to run around like a maniac to make it to work on time. If I just got up ten minutes earlier, my life would be a lot easier, but I just can't bring myself to sacrifice those last few minutes.”
Whether you share Dr. Denny’s viewpoint or not, some mattresses provide better support than others, and if you plan to stay in bed as much as Dr. Denny, you’re going to need it. All natural latex mattresses were initially made as traditional ‘orthopedic mattresses’ in the middle of the twentieth century. Orthopedic mattresses were designed to properly align the spine, minimize stress and improve various medical conditions. In the same way that orthopedic shoes provide support while walking, an orthopedic mattress provides your whole body with more support while sleeping. The introduction of latex as a natural mattress material goes well beyond comfort and support. Hypoallergenic and antibacterial, latex is basically made of natural rubber that discourages infection by bacteria or invasion by molds or mites.
If you’re planning to spend a lot of time in bed, then it’s important to have natural bedding and bedclothes made from organic, eco-friendly materials. Many people believe that cloth made from synthetic fibers is safe, but the opposite is true; synthetic cloth of any kind contains invisible chemicals that can cause rashes, itching and other allergic reactions. Before the revolution of synthetic material in the early 1900’s, cloth and clothing were primarily made of natural materials, such as cotton, flax, wool, silk, and hemp. In the early part of the twentieth century, cheaper synthetics were developed for mass production, and the first synthetic fiber was nylon, which was produced from a petro-molecule. As the 20th century ‘progressed’, other synthetic fibers came along such acrylic, polyester and spandex. Click here to learn more about the benefit of latex mattresses or other bedding material.
