We all love summer (well most people). But thanks to daytime temperature highs, it can turn your home into a furnace. Trying to sleep on a hot night without proper cooling can likely bring out the dark side of some people. We have put together some tips that can make a difference between a decent sleep, and looking like The Grinch in the morning.
Did you know that at least 10% of the human population and approximately 80% of allergy sufferers are allergic to proteins that are found in the waste and decomposed body parts of dust mites?
If you often wake up with congestion, a runny nose, watery eyes, itching, or sneezing, then you are probably allergic to dust mites.
Statistics estimated that about 70% – 90% of people will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives.
That’s insane! And if you’re reading this you’re probably a statistic! And that’s not good. Of course, there are a variety of reasons that can contribute to that number. And being bed experts, we have heard just about all the reasons.
Is your lower back stiff, sore, and achy in the morning? Do your arms and legs fall asleep at night?
Poor sleep can impact every aspect of daily life. Waking from a fitful night of sleep can lead to grogginess and grouchiness during the day, which can lead to more chronic pain and a lack of sleep at night.
It’s a vicious cycle, but there are a few steps to take, including evaluating your sleeping position and cleaning up your sleep routine.
If your mattress is brand-new and of proper firmness for your back but you still wake up with lower back pain, it’s time to look at your sleep position.
The best position to sleep in is one that keeps your spine in proper alignment, protecting the subtle inward curve of the lower back and not thrusting your chin forward.
As a bed company, back pain is something that comes up in conversations with our customer’s fairly regularly. Of course as a bed company we do look at the type of mattress they use and what they could switch to in order to reduce/prevent the discomfort they experience every day.
With our season moving toward summer, this time of the year we experience a rainy and very hot season. Perfect for mould to grow in our homes. Mould can be found throughout your house and the outdoors, and it's one of the most common triggers of nasal allergies and asthma.
Ever wondered what the brain does while we sleep? We did a little digging around and found some interesting results we thought were rather fascinating.
While the brain sleeps, it clears out harmful toxins, a process that may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's, researchers say.
Are you waking up to itchy bites on your skin? The ones that tend to take days to go away? They could very well be bed bugs. Now they aren’t to be confused with dust mites. Dust mites are parasitic in nature and extremely small and resemble the arachnid family. You could really only see them under the microscope. Bed bugs are light to reddish brown, oval shaped with no wings and rather flat.
These little bloodsuckers, no more than 5mm in size, tend to come out during the night when you’re catching up on much-needed sleep in your very comfortable bed. You may think you are alone but are you??
So you allow your pet to sleep with you in your bed? It's likely that most people do as their pets are after all family members. It feels comforting knowing your dog or cat is close by or on the bed while you sleep, and they are enjoying the benefits of a comfy bed too.
It catches most people off guard to hear that sleeping with your pet may not be the greatest idea. After all, isn't companionship the reason you got your furry friend in the first place?
