How Do You Know When It Is Time for a New Mattress?

Will a mattress improve your child’s performance in school?

Earlier this month, the New York Times published a blog post titled, We tell kids to ‘go to sleep!’ We need to teach them why, that offered valuable insight on the correlation between a child’s sleep habits and how it affects their ability to learn and process information.

Staying Fit More Difficult for Night Owls

I’m a night owl, and if I wake up before 10 a.m. on a Saturday I’m thrilled. Morning people are the same as us night owls, just one step ahead. They’re in front of us in line at Starbucks, snagging the last scone. A post-workout treat for them is a would-be yummy breakfast for us.

Spring Clean Your Mattress

My sister and I shared a room until we were 18, and you could say we had different interpretations of “cleaning.”  She loved it, while I had other interests, like … oh, I don’t know, literally anything else. We had to clean our room on Fridays before we could go out with friends. My sister

How To Get The Worst Night’s Sleep

Move your spin class to 7 p.m. or later. If you can get the class to be held IN your bedroom, that’s even better. You want to be sure to hit the sheets with your heart rate nice and elevated.   But before that, go ahead and hit a couple of Red Bull vodkas.  

Dogs Sleeping in Our Beds

When I brought my puppy, Soleil, home, I put her crate next to my bed for her to sleep in, all decked out with cozy blankets and a snuggly toy. I was so naive. Soleil didn’t sleep a single night in it, and now, three years later, I’m pretty sure her crate is somewhere in
