5 Simple Ways to be Healthier

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This list may seem a lot more simple than you initially thought, and may seem like we got our talking points from an elementary school health teacher. None the less to treat our bodies like the temple it is and keep it clean, you only need a crash course to get all the information. Let’s jump right into five simple ways to be healthier.

Go For a Walk

Getting outside and going for a walk can boost energy, and with tons of feel-good negative energy ions, it may even increase oxygen flow to the brain.

Silence your Phone While Sleeping

Set an automatic message to tell your bothersome loved ones that yes, sleep is more important than you! Or just turn your phone off that will work as well. Even if you set it on a low vibrate and you don’t wake up it still interrupts your sleep, causing you to lose out on a more meaningful sleep and valuable recovery time.

Wash The Linens

Mites love to hang out in your bed, wash them out by cleaning your linens in hot water once a week. You can take this one step further by adding a mattress protector or a duvet cover to the mix, designed perfectly to keep out dust and allergens from your mattress.

Drink Water

Your body needs water to function properly. many people quench thirst with a coffee, soft drink, or juice. However it is still very important to just drink straight water; if you don’t like the plain taste you can add fresh fruit, or a cucumber to add some natural healthy flavours.

Sleep

You guessed it. Get your eight hours if you can, I know we are not all lucky enough to get our eight hours but it is very important. Your body needs time to recover and relax and that is where sleep comes in to play. You’ve been awake for sixteen hours, your body and brain needs this time to heal and recover from a hard days work. If you can’t get a good sleep, maybe change your mattress!

 

The “Free Returns” Trick

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

I think its safe to say that 99% of people have been sleeping on a mattress pretty much every day of their whole life in North America. Why is it now that many big online mattress retailers are assuming that you don’t know what you like in a mattress. They make the average consumer feel like they have not yet built up a preference to what they like in a mattress. The genius behind this has created a system where you can buy a mattress online from your old bed (which you probably hate that’s why you’re getting a new one) and all of a sudden a neat box appears on your front step. Web retailers understand that unsatisfied customers return things 22% less than someone who purchased the good through a face to face interaction. Is this because most people simply don’t want to return the items they purchase because it is too difficult. You can’t just walk into a store to get your money, there are a few extra steps. Now take a moment to think about the difficulty in returning a mattress, that comes in a box!

To keep this post relatively short, many people are able to walk into a store and select a mattress they know will be good for them. I for one am not willing to gamble on the comfort of a new mattress and lose sleep over it. I know my preference, and I know that I may not like my old mattress, but it hasn’t changed what I love sleeping on, and what the majority of people also like to sleep on. Don’t fall for a trick for a company to get their products in your house knowing full well you will have to much trouble trying to return it.

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy A Mattress in a Box

Loss of Quality

During the time the mattress is compressed into the box, the cells in the foam begin to break down; the same way they would if you were to sleep on it every night. The only difference is that instead of a 180 lbs of body weight, it’s a half ton weight on a hydraulic press that’s constricting the mattress into a tight roll. As you can imagine, all this does is break down and degrade the coils and foam at a more rapid rate.

Corporate Convenience

Despite the hundreds of eCommerce companies, they all have one thing in common! They are all trying to maximize their profit by cutting costs and time. In most cases, this means cutting real people and real hours. For example, instead of hiring two people to deliver you the bed, they squeeze it into a box and call FedEx.

Higher Shipping Costs

But sending your mattress in a box doesn’t necessarily keep the shipping costs down, at least not for the customer. With all the money these companies save in manpower, they dump it right back into shipping these 70-90 lbs mattresses through a box in the mail which isn’t cheap!
