You may not realize it, but the way you sleep could be affecting the way you live. The angle you rest your head at to the placement of your arms can both play a major part in not only your sleep life, but also your overall health. Over time, if you continue to lay in bed with bad posture, you could potentially get neck pain, sleep apnea, headaches, stomach issues, and so much more.

If you’re looking to prevent these health problems from happening in your future, there are a couple ways to avoid them altogether. There are numerous and proactive ways that you can make sure your sleep is healthy for years to come such as changing your mattress to a Tempur-Pedic or even just adjusting your sleep positions. Take these tips into consideration to help your sleep posture be the best it can be.

  1. Sleep on Your Back

Only about eight percent of people sleep on their back, but this is hands down the best way to snooze. When you lay on your back, your head, neck, and spine all align, distributing the pressure appropriately throughout your body. While you should never wake up feeling achy, the only big con of sleeping on your back is snoring. Lying down in such a way can allow for your tongue to block your airway making snoring and even sleep apnea more severe.

Fortunately, there is a solution and it involves a Tempur-Pedic mattress. With the help of an adjustable Tempur-Pedic Bed, you’ll have the ability to position your body upright so you can comfortably lay on your back without being in any danger of your airways getting blocked.

  1. Avoid Laying on Your Tummy

One sleep position you should completely avoid as if it were the plague is sleeping on your stomach. Even if it is your favorite way to sleep, it’s time to move on and find a better way. Our bodies are not meant to lay on our stomachs for long periods of time. We’re just not shaped that way, so our body distributes weight awkwardly when it’s essentially upside down, making your stomach, your spine, neck, and back all start to feel strained and stiff.

 

  1. Get a New Mattress

If you don’t think it will be easy to change your sleeping habits, getting a Tempur-Pedic mattress is a great solution. Tempur-Pedic beds are made with Tempur foam, which adapts to your body and conforms to your shape, no matter what position you’re sleeping in. Your body will be able to sink in and be supported in all the right places, giving you personalized comfort.

 

Whether you have bad sleeping posture or just a bad mattress, picking out a Tempur-Pedic bed to fit your needs will help resolve a good amount of your sleep-related problems. Stop by our store to test out the advanced technology of Tempur material, and you’ll understand how these beds can make any sleep position better.


Why You Shouldn’t Let Pets on Your Tempur-Pedic Mattress

Is there anything better than cuddling with your pets? You could argue the point, but we truly believe resting with your furry friend is an important past time you should share with them. Now, where that takes place is a different story. It’s common for people with pets to just let their animals jump up on the bed to snooze with them, but we can’t emphasize enough how bad this is for your Tempur-Pedic mattress.

There’s a time and a place for napping with your little companion, but it’s not when you’re going to sleep. Read on to discover why your fur buddy should probably not participate in your bedtime slumber.

 

  1. Dust, Pollen, and Allergens – Oh My!

If you have an outdoor cat and a dog that gets a lot of outside playtime, then you’ll probably be most affected by the mayhem that comes with that. These animals may be clean, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring in fun allergens from outside. From dust particles to flecks of pollen, your pets have a way of bringing these inside and setting your allergies on fire.

If your pets jump into your bed every night, they’re likely to track those unwanted allergens all over your sleep space, which can easily be absorbed into your mattress. Don’t ruin your Tempur-Pedic Mattress or aggravate your senses by letting your “furiend” sleep with you.

 

  1. Accidents Happen

Kids can’t always help it, and neither can your pets. Sometimes they get the urge to release their bodily fluids, and then it’s just too late. Your mattress is suddenly wet and smelly and there’s just no going back. So, the best way to keep a clean bed, free of from animal accidents? Just don’t let them on your bed.

You should always try protecting your Tempur-Pedic with a mattress cover anyways, but unfortunately, liquids still have a way of soaking through the protector. Keep the pets off and you’ll never need to worry about a mess occurring.

 

  1. Catch a Bug

If you let your cats and dogs up on your bed often, there’s a good chance they’ll bring in more than just dust and pollen from outside. Germs, ticks, and other icky things could easily crawl their way into your bed sheets, and even your mattress! Of course, even if your animals get all the appropriate shots to prevent ticks, worms, and other creepy crawlies, your animals still have microscopic bugs that can easily find their way into your bed which can ultimately mess with your immune system. To prevent waking up with a fever, keep the pups and kitties off the bed.

We know it’s a hard thing not allowing your pets on the bed, but a clean Tempur-Pedic mattress is much better for your health. Try finding another spot you can hang out with your animals on, such as a futon, or consider getting your pet their own bed! Either way, keeping the furry fellows off your Tempur-Pedic will keep your mattress, and you, in a better state. If a pet has ruined your bed and you’re ready for a fresh start, stop by our store today to find a Tempur-Pedic bed void of animal hair.


How Sleeping on a Simmons Mattress Makes You Happier

True happiness isn’t finding the Holy Grail, it’s finding the Holy Grail of mattresses. There’s just something enriching – almost otherworldly – about finally finding that mattress that really clicks with your needs and gives you the sleep that you never before believed was possible.

Imagine waking up well rested every morning, the bags of your eyes vanishing as you greet the day with a smile and a spring in your step. That’s the power of a Simmons mattress.

Simmons mattresses aren’t just about making your sleep better, though. Yes, they improve sleep, but they also have the potential to make your whole life happier. Here are just a few ways that Simmons mattresses can make you happier and healthier, both while you are sleeping and awake.

Sleep Soundly

Simmons’ mattresses aren’t just softer, they are technologically better designed to help you rest your best and the benefits of well-slept nights will spread like a wildfire of goodness through your whole life.

What exactly does better sleep mean, though? Better morning meetings. Longer nights with your loved ones. Less yawning when you are supposed to be listening to your boss. Faster PRs on the race track. More hours to read your favorite novel … or write the next great American novel! Whatever it is that makes you happy, better sleep with a Simmons will help that make you even happier.

But what about when you aren’t sleeping? How else can Simmons mattresses make you happier? Well, we’re glad you asked.

Bed Tents

I'm gonna get ya!

The answer, no matter what the question is, is always bed tents. One hundred percent of the time. “What are bed tents?” is said at least twice on every episode of “Jeopardy.” We swear. Ask Alex Trebek.

Joking aside, Simmons mattresses are perfect for those nights when the power goes out and you and your family aren’t quite sure what to do. With a Simmons mattress you can quickly and easily put together a bed tent. Grab some flashlights for ambiance and get the family together for story time. It’s happy memories like these that everybody in your family will hold on to and cherish forever.

Blanket and Pillow Forts

While Simmons is helping you make happy memories with your family, we would be remiss if we forgot about all the possibilities that blanket and pillow forts offer.

With all the extra energy on your hands from a good night’s sleep, you’ll be able to have more productivity around the house, both for projects and for fun. And there’s really nothing more fun than a blanket and pillow fort.

To really take this idea to the next level, divide your family into two teams. Have each team pick either pillows or blankets, and start building forts in opposing corners. You’ll have a house-wide blanket and pillow fort war on your hands, with each team using their Simmons mattress as a comfortable home base.

If this doesn’t make you happy, then maybe nothing will.

Sleep Smarter, not Harder

Simmons isn’t just about mattresses, however. They also have the Beautyrest Sleeptracker monitor, which can be used on any mattress, not just the Beautyrest line. With the app and monitor you can monitor your sleep – and can even use Alexa to find out how your sleep that night was.

It comes with a sleep coach that will give you tips on how to improve your sleep. It also monitors your heart and breathing rates, and can keep track of two people sleeping on the same bed.

So, no matter what your mattress needs are — A new, comfortable mattress, a place to build forts on, or something that comes with the best and latest technology — Simmons is here for you. Stop in today and see just how happy a new Simmons mattress can make you – you won’t regret it!
