Better Sleep Tips

Tips for a Better Nights Rest

Keep Regular Hours

Keep your biological clock in sync by going to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time each morning - even on weekends.

Develop a Sleep Ritual

Doing the same things each night just before bed cues your body to settle down for the night.

Sleep on a Comfortable, Supportive Mattress and Foundation.

It’s difficult to get deep, restful sleep on a sleep set that’s too small, too soft, too hard, or too old.

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise can help to relieve the day’s tension - but not too close to bedtime or you may have a hard time falling asleep.

Cut Down on Stimulants

Consuming stimulants, such as caffeine, in the evening interferes with falling asleep and prevents deep sleep.

Don’t Smoke

Smokers take longer to fall asleep, awaken more often and experience disrupted, fragmented sleep.

Drink Only in Moderation

Drinking alcohol before bedtime interrupts and fragments sleep.

Unwind Early in the Evening

Try to deal with worries and distractions several hours before going to bed.

Create a Restful Sleep Environment

Sleep in a cool, quiet, dark room on a comfortable, supportive mattress and foundation.

Make Sleep a Priority

Say "yes" to sleep even when you’re tempted to stay up late. You’ll thank yourself in the morning.

Mattress Buyer’s Guide


A quality mattress and foundation will gently support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same body position as good standing posture. When selecting a mattress, keep in mind that your body should be able to relax, with your spine supported in its natural curve. Otherwise, your muscles work all night and you can wake up stiff and sore.


Mattresses don’t have to be hard as a board to be good for you, although some people may prefer a firmer feel. Today, mattresses are built with luxurious new cushioning materials and surface treatments, creating a plusher feel. While these mattresses may feel more plush, the core provides the needed support for your body.


Buy the best bed you can afford. Better quality mattresses are built with more supportive spring units, more durable materials and more comfort layers than lower end models. A better mattress set ensures a more comfortable, deeper, more restorative sleep.

Durability and Warranty

Durability refers to how long support and comfort will continue. Like all products, a mattress and foundation gradually wear out. Eventually, you won’t receive the same support and comfort as you did when the sleep set was new. That’s why you should reevaluate your sleep set annually.

Don’t look to the warranty to tell you how long to keep your sleep set. The warranty protects you against product defects and workmanship mistakes, not gradual loss of comfort and support.

Select a mattress that gives you enough room for easy, free movement, especially if you’re sleeping with a partner. Couples should select a queen or king-size mattress to ensure both individuals have enough space to feel comfortable.

Matching Sleep Sets

Matching mattresses and foundations are engineered to work together. Mismatching sets, putting a new mattress on an old foundation or adding, a board between the mattress and foundation can impede comfort and reduce the useful life of the mattress.


Buy quality products made with all new materials. Shopping for the best value, not the lowest price, is a healthy investment in your quality of life.

Keep your new sleep set in good condition by following these care guides.

Some mattresses have specific care instructions provided by the manufacturer. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations first. The following care tips are for the typical two sided mattress set.

Flip and rotate a brand-new mattress every few weeks to help smooth out contours and even out body impressions. After a few months, turn and rotate your mattress a few times a year to help equalize the wear and tear that normally occur. Be sure to rotate your foundation once a year as well.

Don’t use the handles to support the full weight of the mattress. Typically, handles are designed to help you position the mattress over the foundation. If used improperly handles may pull out and damage the fabric.

Vacuuming is the only recommended way to clean a mattress. A quality, washable mattress pad will help keep the sleep set free from stains. If you’re determined to tackles a stain, use mild soap, cold water, and rub lightly. Don’t ever soak a mattress or foundation. We recommend the use of a stain proof mattress protector at all times to help avoid stains which void the warranty.

Your new mattress may seem softer and appear higher then your last. This is because as better quality, more resilient padding has been developed, mattress manufacturers are quilting more layers of it to the surface of the mattress. It takes the average person three to four weeks to adjust to the new feel. A new mattress also puts your spine into a new, healthier posture. Unfortunately, until you body becomes accustomed to it’s new sleeping position, many people experience some discomfort and sometimes even back pain. This adjustment period generally lasts no more than 4 weeks. Don’t worry, this is normal and you’ll soon become accustomed to the new mattress.

The use of the wrong boxes spring will void the mattress warranty and may cause damage to your mattress. Do not put a board between your mattress and box spring as it will cause your mattress to wear out before its time.

Body impressions in a new mattress indicate the comfort level is conforming to your body’s individual contours . These are not structural defects, but normal occurrences in the superior performance of the mattress. To equalize these impressions, turn the mattress regularly.

Don’t let children use your mattress as a trampoline, since this breaks down the inner construction and materials.

If you have queen or king-size bedding, the set must be supported by a bed frame with rigid center support for the warranty to apply.

Do not bend or fold the mattress!
