It’s not how you sleep, it’s how you wake up.

It’s not how you sleep, it’s how you wake up.

It’s not how you sleep, it’s how you wake up.

We each have an impossible number of things to do on an average day. Try as we may to be organized, efficient and productive, there are days when the to-do list only seems to grow. Albert Einstein once said, ‘the more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know’. And today, men and women around the world cry, ‘the more I do, the more I realize how much I haven’t done!’.

Despite the taunting load of work and family responsibilities, it’s not enough that we simply do tasks for the sake of it. We reach to achieve new heights. We aim to make a difference, to leave a lasting impact with every action. We strive to do better than our personal best.

But wait. Since we last checked, there are still only 24 hours in a day. Our clocks run at the same pace they always have. And yet, more is expected of us within the same time-frame. How then do we meet our own goals and expectations? How do we fight to not just stay afloat in this age of action, but make it our time to achieve?

We sleep.

Countless studies stress the benefits of getting 8 hours of sleep a night. We are said to be at optimum productivity, have more motivation and be happier when we sleep well. Sleep even has a significant impact on our memory and ability to learn new skills. There’s no getting past the fact that adequate sleep helps us perform better in every aspect of life, from trying to learn a new language or software to building better relationships.

A google search of ‘How to get good sleep’ will reveal pages of articles listing up to 20 things you can do to ensure you sleep through the night. Don’t drink caffeine after 6pm, eat dinner three hours before bedtime, put away all electronics, maybe even get a sound machine and let the rhythm of ocean waves comfort your mind. More to-dos to add your daily list.

When it comes to sleep and productivity, we suggest you set worry aside. We believe that the right mattress can transform your sleep cycles, and give you the time you need to unwind.

The only thing you should look forward to, is rising every morning with a steely-eyed focus on your goals and the charge to overcome any challenge with the misfortune to come your way. Because the right mattress doesn’t just take care of how you sleep, it makes sure you wake up positive.
