10 Reasons You’re Tired

By | Health | No Comments

Are you feeling tired even after getting 8 full hours of sleep? Here are 10 reasons that might be impacting the quality of your sleep

1- YOU’RE TOO RELAXED – Research has shown that being too laid-back can actually negatively impact your sleep. Stress is a natural part of life and it stimulates your brain which helps boost the immune system. Tip: Try a new activity that might take you out of your comfort zone.

2- YOU’RE “BUZZED” – Research has led scientists to believe that using your mobile device before bed, can interrupt the way your body falls asleep. Despite being tired, electromagnetic currents from your cellphone stimulate brain activity which promotes your brain to send signals to your body that it isn’t time to rest yet. Tip: Let your brain and body fall asleep without distractions.

3- DRINK MORE WATER – Up to 60% of the human body is made up of water. A lack of water supply decreases blood volume and forces your heart to work harder which keeps you feeling tired. Tip: Live by the “8 by 8” rule and drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water throughout the day.

4- YOU’RE NOT EXERCISING – Without exercise your body isn’t developing stamina, which might be what gets you feeling fatigued throughout the day. Working on strength and endurance can keep you energized throughout the day and allow your body to rest more effectively throughout the night. Tip:  Aim to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day.

5- CUT OUT NAPS – If you are taking short naps throughout the day, you might find you get a sudden burst of energy and that may be what you’re looking for. But as the day goes on, that burst of energy will make it more difficult to fall asleep at night. Tip: Cut out naps throughout the day.

6- YOU HAVE NO SLEEP SCHEDULE – Your body is on an internal clock. Waking up and going to bed at the same time every day will keep this clock ticking in a timely manner. When your body’s clock is moving with the day, your body will know when it’s time to power down. This will get you the most out of your 8 hours. Tip: Use an alarm to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day, even on weekends.

7- HIDDEN CAFFEINE – A coffee in the morning is fine for most people and some can ingest well above the daily recommendation without ever having any issues. But for others, the day time pick me ups can disrupt the body’s resting routine. Tip: Once the clock strikes noon, limit your caffeine intake to let your body rest undisturbed throughout the night.

8- NIGHT TIME SNACKS – The emphasis is on snacks. Eating heavy, rich meals before bed forces your body to continue working to digest them. While your body attempts to digest those one, two, or three scoops of ice cream you just ate with your favourite show,  your sleep is being interrupted. Tip: Try to avoid snacking before bed. But if you must, try to opt for a healthy, light snack that won’t sit in your stomach.

9- SETTING THE MOOD – Your brain is programmed to react to specific stimuli through our 5 senses. Your body will use certain signs to determine what  This will send signals to your brain to start producing melatonin, the hormone that helps you fall asleep. Tip: Dim your lights

10- BAD MATTRESS? – We all knew this was coming. Whether its your partner tossing and turning keeping you up at night or it just doesn’t cut it anymore, some people just need a new mattress. At DOZY we got you covered. We carry all Canadian made mattresses in all styles from pocket-springs to memory foam.

Choosing a Mattress

By | Industry | 5 Comments

The purchase of a mattress can be confusing. With many different options and recommendations by sales associates and the internet, it’s tough to choose. Which brand? What type? How firm? What’s the difference? After a long afternoon shopping around they all begin to feel the same; you can’t tell which model, from which brand and for what price? Many people take a day to shop around and pick a mattress from the last place they saw. Chances are if you are reading this you are not one of those people, however this may be your last stop.

We are going to look at a few examples of what the average person is looking for in a mattress. We will compare it to what our experts say and how DOZY can play a role in helping you achieve a better quality sleep, and how you can take back your mornings.

  1. What type of mattress do I need? The simple answer is that pocket coils are what most people choose to sleep on especially in their master bedroom. Pocket coils have been the #1 Seller in all retail mattress stores for decades. They are trust worthy and reliable and typically can outlast a pure foam mattress dollar for dollar. However foam mattress in 2017 are becoming more and more competitive in terms of durability, support, and quality. The option most people opt for, for pure comfort and the best of both worlds is a hybrid mattress. This type of mattress provides both benefits from the pocket coils and foam.
  2. How firm do I need it? Most people look for a mattress opposite to what they have purchased last time around. The mattress is the most put off purchase in the household. Since a lot of people leave the purchase well passed the mattresses done date it creates a certain kind of resentment towards that firmness. With that being said, many mistakes can occur at this point. Mattress can begin to feel lumpy and the padding will begin to ware out after the 10 year mark. The best way to make sure you have a mattress that will first and foremost be good for your health and posture is to purchase something that is medium firm. This type of firmness is also typically the best seller in almost all stores and websites.
  3. What is the difference across all brands? basically, there is none. Mattresses have been made the same way for about 40 years. Before foam became more common and easy to produce a heavy felt covered the springs to give you padded comfort. Of course this was done away with as fast as foam could be produced in a non- toxic way. aside from a few innovations in foam such as memory foam and cool gel, the basic principle remains the same. Across all brands the same materials are available via a limited source of coils and foam aside from a few brands with gimmicky proprietary foams. Meaning if there are 10 manufacturers in Toronto, chances are they know each other and are buying parts from the same place.

At the end of the day like we say, shopping for a mattress can be confusing. If you decide to shop around the best thing too look at is the specs first and compare prices later. Learn what suits you by trying the mattress in home or in store. At Dozy we have set out to streamline the process by offering three mattresses. One of each kind; memory foam, continuous, and pocket coil. Our mattresses are all made medium firm that way most people can easily find what they should looking for and well under budget.

7 Ways to Relax.

By | Health | No Comments

Life can get hectic sometimes, take a few minutes when you find the day is becoming overwhelming to unwind. With a few simple ways to achieve a calmer more grounded attitude, you can begin to take back your day.

Stretch – Standing up for a quick stretch gets blood flowing, and relieves tension in your muscles. This can help you relax after a stressful day. Some offices have changed from having their employees from sitting down to standing up, which engages employees more and helps with productivity, creativity, and physical health.

Take a 5-minute Walk – Take a minute at lunch time if you’ve had a stressful day, to go for a walk. Maybe walk a little further to get a bite to eat. This will not only give you the benefits of physical activity, but also give you alone time, and a chance to gather your thoughts.

Jam to your song – Sometimes listening to music can make everything seem alright. Classical music can be especially relaxing before bed, but listening to a favorite song of yours, especially one that you listened to at a particularly good time, can be extremely beneficial.

Write it Down – Just putting your emotions and worries on a piece of paper can make them seem less daunting. No need for a big journal entry just write down what’s bothering you and how it makes you feel. A good way to tackle any problem is to visualize and materialize the problem in a way that you are comfortable handling.

Look Out the Window – Don’t spy on the neighbors, but simply look at the tress and the grass. Scenes of nature can be very calming. The color green is the most calming color and instantly starts reducing stress. Also the reason so many social media sites are blue is to remind you of the sky. Exposing yourself to nice scenes of nature has nothing but great effects on the brain and body.

Be Alone – Find some time to separate yourself from people. Weather its reading a book, going in the back yard, or for a walk. It’s great to find peace of mind and to be able to do your own thing without anyone interfering.

Drip Cold Water On Your Wrists – When stress sets in head to the nearest tap and run cold water on your wrists and even behind the earlobes. There are major arteries right underneath the skin. Cooling these areas can help cool off your entire body, and calm you down.

At the end of the day many of these things can help but nothing can replace a good nights sleep. Don’t forget to put a high value on the mattress you sleep on and the time you set aside to get a good rest at night.

Why Dozy?

By | Dozy | No Comments

Why Dozy you might ask? Dozy is a Canadian mattress company, designed and built by Canadians, for Canadians. Mattress buying has been a burden for many people. With so many options in terms of where to buy a mattress and then what to buy when you pick from the dozens of mattress stores around, the decision making process becomes cloudy.

With companies breaking into the industry selling rolled up beds stuffed in a card board box, mass produced and sent to your home through Fedex, and purchased online, we knew. It was a bad idea. But when we looked at what that brought to the table for customers everywhere, that being a simple medium to buying a mattress. We saw a great idea. We allow our customers to buy a mattress via the internet, there are a few key differences between us and our competition. Crushing a mattress degrades the foam, causing a loss in quality. Why not take the road of higher quality and just produce our mattresses locally. These companies offer free shipping but who does that benefit, customers in Toronto? NO! If it’s all free then the people in Toronto who are really local, would be paying for someones “free shipping” in BC, or Nunavut, or PEI.

The brilliance in that idea was truly the convenience and the ease you are given when buying the mattress. No more stores with sleazy salesmen, peering out the window, salivating as you walk from your car door into their clutches. No more trying 100 different beds at a time. Expert studies have shown that most people enjoy sleeping on a medium firm mattress, whether memory foam or pocket-coil or a hybrid which uses both. The only problem is these E-commerce mattress companies only offer memory foam, sometimes pocket coils (cause you can crush it) and they only offer one mattress (for the most part). That’s why at Dozy we have separated our mattresses as good better and best however they are all the customer preferred medium firm.

The Dozy mattresses are all at different price points. The High park is definitely our starter mattress, perfect for people who are just moving in, for the guest room, kids room, or even the cottage. The Yorkville is our gel memory foam mattress, which is our middle of the road mattress. This mattress is a great sleep surface. Using the cool gel to give you that cool comfort, while the other two types of foam underneath are able to give you the support and durability that any coil mattress can give. Finally the Rose dale which is our hybrid mattress, is our best seller and the type of mattress most people use in their master bedrooms. This is considered to be our best mattress due to its high customer satisfaction.

At the end of the day. There is a lot to know and even more to choose from. Try a Dozy mattress in your home for 125 nights and if you don’t like it you can utilize our comfort guarantee. Understand that your mattress has never been crushed in the name of convenient shipping, which ultimately comes at the cost of quality. And know that our staff of highly trained sleep experts are either a short click, drive, or phone call in helping you understand more about the industry and our mattresses. Dozy is not a middle man but a source of Canadian made mattresses that come direct from the manufacturer, in Toronto, to your home to bring you a great night sleep.
