Aging brings changes to your sleep quality & quantity – are you prepared?
Growing older is a gift, but it’s hard to look at it that way when you consider the widespread belief that a good night’s sleep is nearly impossible the older we get. While the quality and quantity of sleep may shift as we age, the reality is older people sleep just fine – and often better than their younger counterparts.

A controversial morning task.
Growing up, most of us were told, “make your bed!” a chore we hated. In the adult world, some of us still feel the same. You’re already running late, have to get the kids ready – or just yourself. Making breakfast is hard enough let alone getting dressed in something coordinated (and clean) for the office. With the laundry list of morning to-do’s, making the bed isn’t exactly high priority.
Why does society demand we make our beds and keep it neat and tidy? Is the president coming to inspect a kept bed? Don’t think so. Although, we do agree there are times a bed should be made – house guests, bedroom cleaning and sheet changes – there may be good reasons for not making your bed too.

Understanding latex, where it comes from, how it's manufactured
Ask a group of friends if they've ever heard of latex in mattresses and we guarantee you'll get at least one giggle – and possibly an inappropriate college joke. All kidding aside, latex may be one of the most comfortable, supportive sleep surfaces in the market today – and one of the most misunderstood as well. Buoyant, supportive, therapeutic pressure-point relief are just a few of the words used to describe latex mattresses.
So what is latex and where does it come from?
Latex is the end product of harvested liquid from rubber trees (Hevea Brasiliensis) in Asia. These trees produce up to 4 lbs of sap a year and are considered a rapidly renewing resource that can be harvested for generations – without the need for large farm equipment or harm to the trees.
