The foundation of your house is what keeps your home standing strong and tall. A mattress base serves the same purpose but keeps you and your bed in good standing. You need a good night’s sleep to live a healthy and productive life. What’s essential to a good night of sleep? A great mattress.
If you think it’s just you, or you and your partner, alone in your bed when you sleep at night, think again. Joining you in your slumber are millions of bacteria, dozens of fun guys (fungi), and millions of little creatures called dust mites. While most of these are harmless, knowing tiny organisms are calling your mattress home can make the hairs stand up on anyone’s neck.
Nighttime hours are quiet and dark; the perfect time to relax and fall into a deep slumber. But for many of us, lying in bed in silence activates a cycle of anxious thoughts. I can’t believe I waved at that person who wasn’t actually waving to me. I don’t know how I’m going to finish my project tomorrow. Is my boss mad at me? Is my alarm clock set? And on, and on. Your own worst enemy is sometimes yourself.
If you own a dog, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve let them sleep in bed with you. And why wouldn’t you? After all, they’re part of the family and you want them to be comfortable, or maybe you feel safer with them next to you.
You’ve always prided yourself on being a night owl, but earning the title was a little bit easier when you could sleep until 10 a.m. Ah, to be 20 and enrolled in afternoon classes again. Now that your boss expects you to “get to work on time” and “stop telling people not to talk to you before noon” – you need a game plan for going to bed early.
There’s nothing like waking up with a headache so powerful you’d swear a tiny man with a jackhammer had taken up residence in your frontal lobe. Nothing so terrible, that is. If you’re waking up with a headache on a regular basis, it’s time to send that pocket-sized construction worker away so you can wake refreshed and pain-free.
