For Better Health

Everyday, we work, exercise, eat, and have mental stress. These are functions that all wear on our bodies and if we do not get good sleep to rejuvenate our body, it can lead to many health issues. A body needs exercise and a healthy diet. Just as important as those two needs, we need good sleep. During sleep our body is built back up and our brain is refreshed. You need 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.

Americans typically are only getting about 6 1/2 hours on average, and we are at an all time high of health issues like cancer. Many studies have linked the lack of sleep to be one of the causes for our deteriorating health. In the lab, scientists are able to give a rat cancer by depriving it from sleep!

Sleep can boost your immune system, prevent cancer, aid in weight loss and reduce stress. Start living healthy- get better sleep!


How to Sleep Better

  • A dark room allows you to sleep better, along with a cooler temperature.

  • The correct support for your body is very essential to enjoying many hours of uninterrupted sleep. So the correct mattress for your body's need is important. 

  • The size of the sleeping surface is important. Always try to purchase the largest mattress size that will fit in your room. Did you know that if two people are sleeping on a full size mattress, each person has the same amount of space as they had in a crib! That is not enough space for an adult to lay on their back with support under their arms. You are then required to move to your side, which causes pressure points to your shoulder and hips. Pressure points are the main cause of tossing and turning.

  • Mattresses are made in a variety of support systems along with several types of foams to give extra firm support to soft and pillowy.

  • Try the mattress by laying on it for 10 minutes helps you understand if the feel will support your body comfortably. So, take some time and try the different styles to see which design offers the best feel.
