Setting a sleep routine.

Exercise to a better nights sleep

Be smart about napping
Napping can be too much of a good thing! If you need to nap be sure to do it early rather than often. Napping too late can cause you to have symptoms of insomnia.
Write down your problems
Many of us think at night about “what we could hove done” or “I wish I had done that differently” it often helps to write these down and get them out of your head.
Keep your bedroom dim and cool
Our Sleep experts have found that keeping your body cooler actually helps slow your heart rate allowing yourself to dive into a deeper sleep. Be sure to check your thermostat to be between 65 and 75 degrees but ensure your body is just right! Not too cold or too hot.
Pillows matter too!
Although some people do not use pillows; they are a great sleep tool! Aligning your neck in the proper sleeping position can be the difference between a great night’s sleep and a good night’s sleep!
Stay booze-free before bedtime!
Alcohol prior to bed will signal your body to stay awake! Drink your last glass at least 2 hours before you hop into bed!

DO the 15-minute snooze test inside the store!
Mattress retailers have the beds on display for a reason! To help the consumer decide what bed they need and want. When looking for a bed, take 15 minutes and lay on the one you believe is for you. This will help ensure you don’t have to go back twice!
Do I need just a mattress or the set?
It is recommended to replace your box spring especially if you have an older mattress. If you decide to use your old box spring, be sure to check your new bedding warranty to ensure it remains valid. If your bedroom set utilizes a platform base, you do not need a box spring.
Protect your investment!
Don’t forget to get a mattress protector for your bedding. This ensures there will be no accidents on your mattress. A simple stain can void your manufactures warranty.
