“I’ve never had to choose between working out and sleep.” Said no person committed to a workout routine ever. We’ve all been there – racing against the clock or fighting the urge to hit the snooze button to get our workouts in.
It’s been a long time since we started a conversation about sleeping in a tent. After all, it can be cumbersome to put a full-size Tempur-Pedic in your Coleman. What we have shared with you is a great deal of information about circadian rhythms and sleep hygiene to help you get higher quality, more restful sleep, and more of it. For those whose circadian clocks are out whack, new sleep research has revealed a sure-fire cure – and a fast-acting one at that.
It’s normal to think twice.
I’m guilty. When I recently bought a new mattress, I seriously considered not buying a new foundation. I bargained. I made a pros and cons list. While I was still at the store, I thought better of it and invested a new Amish wood box spring. Unfortunately, what I didn’t do was measure the stairwell it would have to go up.

Does everyone you encounter have the flu?
It’s a scary time of year, and this flu season seems to be particularly harsh. But there’s good news! Research has recently revealed sleep to be one of the factors that determine who gets sick and who doesn’t. If you’d written this off along with the old wives’ tale that getting your head cold makes you sick, it’s time to adjust your expectations. Wearing a beanie all winter won’t keep you well, but getting sufficient sleep just might.
If you’re browsing mattress options, it’s very likely that you’re in one of two camps – those thinking they might maybe want to replace their old mattress sometime soon, and those who absolutely know they need to find the right bed as soon as possible. This post is for the second group, many of whom are homeowners – a good number of whom are brand new homeowners.
Do you feel like buying a new mattress is daunting? Unfortunately, most people do. It doesn’t have to be that way. Plenty manage to plan their trip, go to the mattress store, and walk out with their decision made and a delivery date on the calendar. Yes, you should do your research, but once you’re ready to make it happen, it’s only a matter of time until you’re resting easy on your new mattress. Here’s how to minimize that timeline.
