If you’ve ever invested in more than a futon, chances are you realize that buying a mattress is an important decision.New mattress built by Custom Comfort Mattress  Choosing the right mattress can make the difference between being energized, confident and aware, or being exhausted, cranky and absent-minded.  But no one wants to buy a new mattress before they really need to.  Some sources say a mattress is good for 10 years.  Other sources say 5.  Reality says it depends on what kind of wear and tear your mattress is getting.  So how do you know when it is time for a new mattress?  The following questions can help you decide.

Quality sleep:  Do you toss and turn before falling asleep?  Do you awaken in the middle of the night?  Do you struggle to get out of bed in the morning?

Healthy sleep:  Do you awaken with stiff, sore shoulders, elbows, hips or knees?  Do you wake up with back pains you didn’t have when you went to bed?  When the mattress is bare, do you notice valleys or grooves in its surface?  When you run your hands over the mattress, do you feel sharp edges under the cover?

Hygienic sleep:  Do you notice a change in your bedroom’s aroma when you climb into bed?  Have you ever been awakened by the smell of your bed?  Does the cover of your mattress look grey or stained? Are there crusty or dusty bits around the binding of your mattress?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your mattress may be doing you a disservice every night, and it might be time to make a change.  Still unsure?  Answer these questions:

Quality sleep:  Do you fall asleep within 15-20 minutes of climbing into bed every night?  Do you sleep through the night?

Healthy sleep:  Do you wake up refreshed after 7-9 hours, feeling better than you did when you went to bed?  When the mattress is bare, does it maintain its original shape?

Hygienic sleep:  Would you say your mattress has no scent at all? Does the surface of your mattress cover look clean and fresh?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, it is time to look into getting a new mattress.  But remember:  not all mattresses are made equal.  When its time to improve the quality of your sleep, Custom Comfort Mattress can help.  Stop by one of our seven area showrooms, download our free mattress shopping guide or make an appointment for a one-on-one sleep consultation.

Will a mattress improve your child’s performance in school? http://customcomfortmattress.com/blog/sleep/sleep-and-school/ http://customcomfortmattress.com/blog/sleep/sleep-and-school/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 18:10:29 +0000 http://customcomfortmattress.com/?p=4322 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.

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 Tired Child Sleeping in Schoolchild’s sleep habits and how it affects their ability to learn and process information. The blog highlights results from several sleep studies done with children ranging from four to 12 years of age.

The post explains that sleep “not only restores and renews the body, but it also performs maintenance on the mind.” This maintenance includes preserving important memories from the previous day and reinforcing newly learned information and skills. Also, results from recent research indicate that increasing a child’s sleep by an additional half-hour reduces daytime sleepiness, emotional inconsistencies, restlessness, and impulsiveness. These are behaviors that can negatively affect a school-age child trying to learn in a classroom.

There are a number of reasons why a child may not be getting enough sleep. The study indicated that many parents were unaware of the number of recommended hours for their child. Some admitted to not having a set bedtime routine. Others indicated that the evening routine included things such as eating sweet snacks and watching television that have an adverse affect on getting a good night’s rest. But having a positive routine in place only gets your child in bed – your efforts will be in vain if your child is unable to get comfortable once tucked in.

Often, children’s bedroom furniture packages include a mattress and box spring. These are often of inferior quality, included only to “sweeten the deal.” Don’t let your thrifty find affect your child or how well he or she may be doing in school. A Custom Comfort Mattress may be just the thing to make sure they get the sleep they needs to be successful.

Download a free mattress shopping guide, or bring your child into one of our seven area locations. Even though you’re enjoying summer now, school is right around the corner. Your child will sleep well – and so will you – knowing that he or she will wake prepared to take on the learning challenges of a new day.

Trouble sleeping? These tips will help you sleep better.Feeling tired, worn down, crabby, and yet can’t seem to sleep at night? You’re not alone.  Many adults suffer from sleep troubles that keep them from feeling at their absolute best.

Although you may not be able to fix all the troubles keeping you away from dreamland, here are some ideas on things you can do to minimize those hours when your brain just won’t shut down, and you can’t sleep.

  • Get up and go to bed at the same time each day. This helps keep your body’s internal clock and sleep cycle consistent.
  • Avoid afternoon naps.  They may give you a pick-me-up at the end of the day, but can lead to your body expecting to stay up later.
  • Avoid exercising in the evening before bed. Exercise is a great aid to sleep in most situations, but in the evening, the high endorphin and adrenaline levels released into your blood from working out can keep you awake.
  • Create a bedtime routine.  Setting up a regular bedtime ritual or relaxing activity such as reading a book before sleeping can signal to your brain that is time to sleep.
  • Don’t eat large meals right before bed. Eating large meals right before bed can lead to heartburn and digestive discomfort that can keep you awake.
  • How conducive is your room to sleep?  Make sure your room is comfortable for sleeping in.  For example, it isn’t too hot, too noisy, or too bright for you to sleep comfortably.  If your room is too bright at night, you may want to get dark curtains or a sleep mask.
  • How old is your mattress and pillows?  If you wake up often due to itchy eyes, sore hips or shoulders, or discomfort lying down, it may be time to look into a new mattress, or a different type of mattress.  Older mattresses can also harbor allergens such as dust and pet dander that could be affecting your sleep.
  • See a doctor or go to a sleep study. If you tried all the things above, and you still can’t sleep, it’s important to go to a doctor and make sure your trouble sleeping isn’t indicative of some other illness or sleep condition.

Getting a good night’s sleep on a regular basis is necessary to stay happy, healthy and active.  These tips will hopefully help send everyone’s sleep troubles packing.  If you have any questions on the types of new mattresses and accessories available, please stop by one of our seven area showrooms or make an appointment for a one-on-one sleep consultation. We want to help you find the best mattress available to suit your needs. Which tip is going to help you sleep better tonight? Leave us a comment below.

Staying Fit More Difficult for Night Owls http://customcomfortmattress.com/blog/sleep/staying-fit-difficult-night-owls/ http://customcomfortmattress.com/blog/sleep/staying-fit-difficult-night-owls/#comments Thu, 05 Jun 2014 22:47:42 +0000 http://customcomfortmattress.com/?p=3838 I’m a night owl, and if I wake up before 10 a.m. on a Saturday I’m thrilled.

A post-workout treat for them is a would-be yummy breakfast for us.

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.

 

The study

If you’re a night owl, it might be more difficult to maintain an exercise routine. It’s certainly more difficult to maintain compared to morning people. But we knew that. Morning people are just a different breed, if you ask me.

Night-owls-blog

The director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Northwestern’s School of Medicine, Kelly Glazer Baron, conducted a study on sleeping late and exercise. She took 123 healthy people who get at least 6.5 hours of sleep at night. Their exercise and sleep activities were monitored over a period of seven days.

If you aren’t already impressed, Baron is also a professor of neurology at Northwestern.  Not bad. Her findings from this study were published in the current issue of the journal, Sleep, and presented June 4th at the 2014 SLEEP convention.

 

The results

Baron found that people who stayed up later had a poorer attitude toward exercise. She also learned that exercise was far more difficult for participants who slept in.  The findings suggest that those of us who like to sleep in on the weekend are more likely to be sedentary and blow off our workout.

Baron concludes, ”Sleep timing should be taken into account when discussing exercise participation.”  She acknowledges that it’s hard enough to get motivated to exercise as it is, and suggests, “We could expect that sleep timing would play even a larger role in a population that had more difficulty exercising.”

 

Something to consider, indeed.

I only become aware of how rusty my non-verbal communication skills are when I’m at the mall.

Everything is fine until I see the dreaded mall kiosk.  The only thing worse than seeing the mall kiosk is making eye contact with the person working the mall kiosk. I scramble to arm myself with non-verbal cues like taking a sudden interest in the flooring, or making a fake phone call as I pass — anything to avoid engagement with this salesperson!

 

WalletWhy do we do this?  Because we don’t like feeling pressured.

 

 It makes us feel anxious because we care about what people think of us. They might think we’re rude if we stop them, maybe it’ll hurt their feelings. So, we stand at the kiosk we don’t want to be standing at, we listen to a sales pitch for something we don’t want and we wind up buying a mini helicopter for Grandma’s birthday. Who knew we were such people pleasers?

 

Custom Comfort Mattress wants your experience to be easy, fun, educational and most of all, pressure-free. How can we make a pressure-free experience? We think pressure often stems from commission-based sales. We wonder, are they motivated by a commission or by the customer’s best interest?

 

We want you to know that won’t happen with us because our sales staff does not work on commission. Here, there is no pressure to “hurry up and buy now.” There is no benefit to sales reps if you buy a more expensive bed. We care about your sleep because we know how important it is to your overall health.

 

We also realize that the mattress industry might have changed since you shopped for a bed last. Terms can be confusing, and we are here to help. It’s our job to find the best bed for you — both physically and financially. No agenda, no games — just a great night’s sleep.

When you schedule an appointment with us, you are one step closer to finding your perfect bed. If nothing else, by the time you leave, you’ll be the ever-informed mattress shopper who knows exactly what he or she wants in a mattress. A sleep consultation appointment might sound clinical, but you can leave your bite guard at home!

WhatToExpect

What is a sleep consultation appointment anyway?

You will meet with a Comfort Rep, who will sit down with you to go over any concerns you may have regarding your sleep. You will be asked about your sleep duration, quality, disturbances, frequency and more. The more you can share about sleep issues, the closer we get to finding your perfect bed.

What is the goal of the appointment?

The objective is for us to get you sleeping better. We want you on a bed that gives you the best sleep possible. Based on what we learned from you, we can direct you to the beds we’ve assessed for you. Getting a good night’s sleep has so much to do with comfort. Our Comfort Reps are knowledgable professionals. They know about our natural materials and can explain pros and cons of certain materials, including health benefits. We will be able to tell you which bed will work better for you than another and why. Even if you don’t buy from us, you will leave your appointment a well-informed shopper.

How long will this appointment last?

It’s really your call, but we ask that you set aside about one hour for the appointment. We are committed to find you the best bed that you’re comfortable with, both physically and financially. If that means you’re trying out beds for hours on end — so be it!

How should I dress for my appointment?

Dress comfortably. This usually means loose-fitting pants for men and women. Remember, you’ll be trying out beds  in your natural sleeping position. We recommend spending 15-20 minutes per bed. It takes our body a little bit of time to really relax.

Do I have to buy something?

NO. You do not have to buy anything.

Will I be pressured?

Our sales staff does not work on commission. We feel that pressure comes with sales people and their numbers game.  We’ve taken that element out. If you do buy from us, there is no pressure. Our sales staff does not benefit if they sell you a more expensive bed. You won’t be pressured to buy anything. Promise!

It’s okay, I’ve accepted it. It all started when I was just a little girl. My first sleepover at Jana Keller’s house. I wake up in the morning to her and her mom standing over me, ”Are you ALIVE? You sleep with one eye half open.”

Until this moment, my greatest fear was that I’d pee on her Care Bear sheets. But this? This was news. From that day forward, my staying the night anywhere came with a signed agreement to not call 911 to resuscitate me. I was not near death, I was simply in an epic session of shuteye. Pun intended.

Along with my weak eyelid, I’m a mouth breather, a drooler and seasonal snorer. You might imagine I struggle to achieve the peaceful, angelic form of a pretty sleeper. Maybe some of you can relate. Here are some tips for looking our best, even when we sleep.

USE A SLEEP MASK

Ever rush out the door to run errands and cover half your makeup-free face with those oversized sunglasses? An eye mask will serve the same purpose whether you use it to conceal your wonky eye or maybe you feel more confident after the puffy morning-eyes have had time to de-puff.

CHEW GUM BEFORE BED

This tackles the mouth breathing. Chew gum with your mouth closed while you’re getting ready for bed. You will have a better chance at nasal breathing since you’ve prepped your body for it with the gum chewing. Just don’t forget to ditch the gum before you actually fall asleep. Nobody likes a mouth breathing, drooling, wonk-eyed snorer with gum in her hair!

SLEEP ON YOUR SIDE

Most people snore while sleeping on their back. Create a pillow fortress around you to avoid sleeping on your back.  Start off the night by sleeping on your side or stomach. The fortress is meant to be an obstacle course so you either can’t get on your back, or you wake up from the struggle. If your snoring is seasonal, check with your doctor to see if you would benefit from an antihistamine regimen.

Did you know sprinkling baking soda on your mattress absorbs odors? Baking soda is a natural deodorant, so I like to sprinkle some of the good stuff over my mattress, let it hang out on there for about 15-20 minutes, then vacuum it up. It turns out there is more to baking soda than meets the eye. This sodium bicarbonate (if that is indeed its real name) has a plethora of uses.

First-aid-cropped

1. DIY mini-facial

Forget those $100+ face brushes and hang up your wash cloth. Similar to microdermabrasion therapy, adding a little baking soda to your skincare regimen helps achieve a fresh, smoother complexion — and it’s gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.

Add a teaspoon of baking soda to your regular face wash for a glowing complexion. Baking soda is a natural abrasive, which sloughs off dead skin. At around $2 a box, you can’t afford NOT to use this.

 

2. Refrigerator Deodorizer

Baking soda absorbs and neutralizes odors. Sometimes, I come across a funky tasting batch of refrigerator ice. Nothing ruins my Diet Coke like garlic-flavored ice. The water used to make refrigerator ice comes from, well, your refrigerator. The ice will take on the flavor of whatever strong-smelling food (e.g., onion, garlic) you have in there. Pop open a box of baking soda and put it in the door of the fridge side to keep flavors fresh. Odors that originate in the fridge can sneak over to the freezer side. Tip: store stinky food in airtight containers to minimize flavor contamination.

 

3. Detergent

Put a scoop of baking soda into your washing machine for stark whites. This tried and true laundering method goes back to the 1940s when scientists were making atomic bombs. The uranium would stain their coats and would not wash out with soap or detergent. The only thing that worked on uranium stains was washing the clothes in a baking soda solution. Something about the pH levels, I’m not a science girl. Now that’s some serious stain-removing power!

 

4. Fire extinguisher

Ever start a small fire in your kitchen? Me neither! Fine, I have seen a flame or two coming from my toaster. Dump baking soda onto small electrical fires to extinguish the flame. Keep a box on your kitchen counter for any small fires.

 

5. Nasal rinse

Make your own sinus rinse at home. Combine 3 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda and store in an airtight container. Add 1 teaspoon of the mixture to one cup of lukewarm, distilled water. Flush the rinse into sinuses using an infant nasal bulb. You can find these at your local drugstore.

 

6. Antacid

To banish stomach acid and indigestion, dissolve ½ teaspoon of baking soda into ½ cup water. Drink this every two hours, or as instructed by your doctor. The baking soda will help neutralize acid in the gut caused by spicy or upsetting foods.

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 mixed her own vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle — I know — and prepped her dusting towels. I, on the other hand, didn’t clean so much as shove everything into my closet and force the door shut. Now that we’re older, I’ve come to appreciate cleaning — but still not as much as my sister.

SPRING CLEAN = DEEP CLEAN

Break out the vacuum cleaner and the baking soda — it’s time to spring clean your bed! Throw the sheets, pillow cases and blankets into the wash on hot. Since it’s spring and time for a deep clean, we are going to tackle cleaning the mattress itself.

WHY WE NEED TO CLEAN IT

Well, for one thing, we sweat like one pint every night.

You guys? A PINT. The next time you belly up to the bar, go ahead and take a gander at that pint of beer.

THAT’S.

IN.

YOUR.

MATTRESS.

Secondly, we are constantly shedding dead skin onto our beds, which attracts dust mites and other parasites. So, we want to be sure to clean our mattress to help eliminate critters and allergens.

iStock_000008655597Small

VACUUM

You want to clean the mattress as thoroughly as possible, so use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum. The upholstery attachment is the one with bristles. Before you start, make sure the attachment is sparkling clean. Vacuum the entire surface of your bed in slow, short lines to eliminate as much dust / dust mites as possible. Be sure to get well into the stitching, as bugs like to hide in the crevices of the mattress.

APRIL FRESH

Neutralize any odors by sprinkling some baking soda on your mattress. Let it hang out for about 15 minutes and then vacuum it up. Baking soda is a natural deodorant, and is gentle enough to use on your bare mattress. Disinfectant sprays like Lysol can be sprayed on the mattress and box spring to kill odor-causing bacteria, but be sure they’re good and dry before you dress the bed.

AVOID LIQUID CLEANERS

Liquid is the worst thing for your mattress.

Spills are especially harmful because they sink deep into the core of your mattress. This makes your bed an ideal breeding ground for all kinds of nasties like black mold, mildew and bacteria. Stick with a garment steamer or a vacuum for a good cleaning. Spot clean any stains with a moistened cloth. If you need it professionally cleaned, call around. You can usually find a carpet cleaning company that is glad to do the job for under $100.

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.

 

Now, I know what you’re thinking - ”But Lauren, why on earth wouldn’t I have my cocktails pre-workout like normal?!” Well, friends, we’re looking to get a really bad night’s sleep if you remember, so trust me on this.

 

blog-how-to-get-the-worst-nights-sleep

The alcohol might get you to sleep, but fear not. It will wear off and you’ll be up shortly after. The caffeine from the Red Bull will have your blood pressure so high you won’t be able to even shut your eyes. (Unrelated: keep your Medical Alert necklace close.)

 

Also, it’s crucial for you to read on your tablet or phone in order to stave off sleep for as long as possible. You want that backlit blue light to penetrate your brain, signaling that we’re pulling an all-nighter.

 

And for the love of Billy Mays, leave the TV on! You’re counting on the frequency changes in television shows and commercials to keep your brain mildly entertained. Where your attention goes is up to Law & Order. All we care is that it doesn’t go to sleep!

 

Now look at your clock every 40 minutes, do the work-on-no-sleep math and start your mind-blowingly bad day!

No need to thank me, just pay it forward.

 

 

 

**Happy April Fools’ Day! Obviously, this is not serious advice. For actual advice on how to sleep well, check out our other posts.
