When I was younger, sleep was not my highest priority. I remember when I would barely get three hours of sleep, and still be able to function for the day. Or be able to sleep for ten hours straight without a care in the world. As I have gotten older, sleep can be difficult. Getting to sleep is usually not the problem, but sleeping through the night and waking up rested is hard to come by.
I have explored a number of ways to ensure that I can get a full nights rest. And recently, I read an interview with the head of a resort hotel on how to build a better bed. If this is what it takes to enable me to get some quality sleep, I’m all in.
These recommendations run the gamut from the type of pillows to the best mattresses. When you stay for a night or two at some of the resort hotels, you do wonder what they do to achieve such a comfortable bed. And most of them will provide you with their products information if your request it.
Once when we stayed at a spa hotel, the mattresses where so incredibly comfortable that the front desk had a printout available with the manufacturer’s information for their guests. It just so happened that the mattresses were provided by a local Pennsylvania company who would ship you a mattress upon request. Yes – the cost was high, but it proves what people will spend for a good night’s rest.
Here are a few recommendations to sleep like your on vacation every night:
- Pillows – Goose down pillows are the best or if you need hypoallergenic, try eco-pillows made from recycled plastic.
- Comforter – Down is the filling of choice, though hotels sometimes opt for a sneeze-free alternative.
- Linens – Pick white for that clean fresh look with a prefer thread count in the range of 300-600.
- Mattress Topper – This is the key to a comfortable bed. A quilted pad provides an extra one to two inches of cushioning.
- Mattress – Many prefer foam mattresses or a pocketed-coil model in the nine to twelve-inch range.
Whatever you need to do to achieve a full night’s rest is beneficial as studies have proven the significance of a sound’s night sleep for your overall health.
Here’s to a restful night!
Hope you have a great week!
