In 7 years your mattress will double in weight

“In 7 years your mattress will double in weight” – Says Dr. Breus

Just recently (December 4th 2007) one of our team members caught a television show on PBS titled “Good Night with the Sleep Doctor Michael Breus, PhD”.

It was a fascinating show in which Dr. Breus explained the major sleep problems facing American’s today. It is estimated that 36 million American’s have a problem getting through the day simply due to sleep deprivation and insomnia. That is a pretty large percentage of our population. Are you getting enough sleep?

Dr. Breus makes some great points in his presentation and he even talks about the importance of good quality sheets! This is something that we are pretty familiar with : ) As many of you know, there is nothing like a set of great fitting, cozy bed sheets to help you fall asleep faster: Hard To Find Bed Sheets

Sometimes you are unaware of how something so simple like bed sheets can make such a huge difference in your sleep quality until you actually compare a great luxury sheet and a cheaper plain sheet set. There is a difference.

It really is true – The more comfortable you are, the more likely you are to fall asleep quicker and stay snoozing throughout the night. Great sheets of course are just one factor in many that can be combined to help you get a better nights rest.

The Dr. also points out that in 7 years, your mattress will double in weight due to sweat, dust mites and oil from your skin: The Bottom Line. That is incredible but very believable. After all, human perspiration itself averages 2 pints per day and it is estimated that 2 million dust mites thrive in an unprotected mattress.

It is the inhalation of dead dust mites and their droppings that can cause allergies, asthma and rhinitis which can make it difficult to fall asleep. We do offer a product (dust mite protection) which can help with this problem whether you have a new or older mattress.

(Be sure to check out the Doctors website for some tips on buying a new mattress)

All in all, it was a great show. If you missed it, you may be able to catch another airing in the future by checking your local PBS listings or clicking over to Dr. Breus’ official website shown below.
