Jokingly, it’s been said that there’s a sixth love language – the love language of sleep. Never a truer statement! There’s no better way that my husband can show his love for me than letting me sleep in. With a two-month-old baby at home, my body is majorly lacking in the sleep department. Although I can’t always control the quantity of my sleep, my recent visit to Sleep Number has taught me that there are ways to control the quality of my sleep.
Improving Your Quality of Sleep
1. Select the perfect pillow: Upon arriving at the Sleep Number store, I was asked to select my pillow of choice. It was explained to me that a quality night’s rest must begin with a comfortable pillow. Do you prefer a soft pillow? Something with a little more firmness?
2. Find a comfortable bed: It’s been shown that a comfortable bed can drastically improve the quality of sleep you get each night. When choosing the perfect bed, you want to find something that contours to the shape and size of your body. Because your body changes over time, it’s important to find a bed that changes with your body – like a Sleep Number.
3. Find your Sleep number: Because you can adjust the sleep setting of your Sleep Number, it’s important to find your correct sleep number. When vising the Sleep Number store, I was asked to lie down on this bed. It was explained to me that Sleep Numbers range from 5-100 (5 being the softest and 100 being extra firm). Upon feeling the different sleep numbers, I was able to select MY sleep number: 30. It was crazy how I could instantly feel back relief and added comfort when lying down. Just look at the picture below! You can easily see how my sleep number took away all of my back pressure. To be completely honest, it was so comfy, I almost fell asleep!
4. Utilize SleepIQ® technology: SleepIQ® technology allows you to track the quality of your sleep through Advanced DualAir™ technology. The best part about it, all you have to do is sleep! When you wake up, you can track your night’s sleep, restlessness, average heart rate (mine is 70), and breathing rate (mine is 16). Based on the quality of your sleep, SleepIQ® technology provides tips for improving your sleep.
Getting a quality night’s sleep has never been easier thanks to Sleep Number.
