1. Adjustable Beds: The Future of Sleep

    Adjustable Beds: The Future of Sleep

    One of the main reasons that life, as it was 150 years ago, looks so different to us today is the enormous amount of technological advancements that have come along and changed how we live our lives. Instant communication with friends half a world away, traveling across a continent in a matter of hours, and getting anything imaginable shipped right to our door would’ve been inconceivable a century and a half ago.

    Yet, for all these improvements that have made our lives easier over the years, there’s one essential part of our daily lives that hasn’t made any big technological leaps: the bed. Maybe it’s because we’ve been sleeping since the dawn of time and so we assume we have it down pat, but our beds have been essentially the same for hundreds of years: flat, with maybe some spongy material for comfort. A revolution for bed tech is on the horizon, however, and it’s being sparked by one innovative game-changer: the adjustable bed frame.

    3 Tips to Beat the Winter Weariness

    Ahh, winter. That most contentious of seasons. Seems to be, you either love it or hate it, and a lot of that just has to do with perspective. For instance, some see freshly-fallen snow and are awestruck by beauty—others think about how rough traffic will be in the morning. Some people hear Christmas music back on the radio and are immediately filled with holiday cheer—while other would prefer nails on a chalkboard.

    Sleep may be the most influential aspect of our health that is widely taken for granted. Many these days aren’t surprised to learn that a large number of the population makes due with six hours of sleep or less on average, but they are surprised to learn that six hours of sleep a night puts your health at serious risk.
