Whether through e-mails, Facebook messages or other avenues, we hear the above complaints from our customers all the time. It seems no one is getting the right type of rest, even though they may be getting the recommended eight hours of sleep. This led us to wonder: Why are people always feeling tired despite the fact that they’re sleeping enough? We decided to investigate, and we were mighty surprised by what we found.
Selecting a quality mattress isn’t only a matter of choosing a piece of furniture. Enjoying a good night’s sleep can affect your health in multiple ways. It can help improve memory, reduce inflammation, increase creativity, sharpen one’s attention, help maintain a healthy weight and increase both athletic and academic performance.
Can’t sleep? The person you share your bed with may be to blame. Many people are completely compatible outside the bedroom, but when it comes to sleeping patterns, they don’t match up with their sleeping partners. Is it time to find a new significant other?
Do you ever feel like it’s impossible to get a good night’s sleep? You start the night with the best of intentions. You get ready for bed at a reasonable hour and lay down to go to sleep.

Maybe this sounds familiar: It’s a summer evening, and you and your significant other are headed to bed. She sets the temperature at 72, because she says it’ll save money on your electricity bill. But you want it at 67, because it’s more comfortable, and what real difference could a few degrees make?
