Getting a decent amount of rest each night is important for everyone.

In the professional world, an 8-hour, undisturbed sleep, allows us to work to our full potential. It keeps us alert and focused. It also increases our ability to work longer hours. For some of us, coffee might have the same affect, but the healthy choice is obvious: more sleep equals better productivity.

The same principal applies to our children.

As competition grows for Post-Secondary entrance, more and more young people are neglecting healthy sleep over hours spent studying. It is important to remind our children that sleep deprivation is much more detrimental to their learning potential then they realize.

On average, teenagers need approximately 10 hours of sleep each night. Younger children need even more.

One way to help your child receive the rest they need is to encourage a sleep schedule.

If, once they are in bed, they have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, the problem could be the mattress they are lying on.

Often children are given mattresses that are passed down and have worn out springs. These mattresses might look like an easy way to save money, but they may be hurting your child’s potential. The money you spent on a tutor could be going to waste if your child is not able to maintain concentration, due to a lack of rest.

A smart investment would be a new mattress from Simmons Mattress Gallery. Simmons has a huge selection of mattresses for every person in your household. Come browse our store with the whole family. Your children will thank you.

DOs

1. Use a metal base frame for Full, Queen and King sized beds. Make sure it has a horizontal or vertical rigid centre rail, or metal/iron cross rails with a centre leg. A proper frame is important to not damage your product.

2. Use the matching foundation for your bed. Like star-crossed lovers, they are designed to be together.

3. Shop with your partner.

4. Look for value,not price. Find the bed that offers the benefits you seek.

5. Buy like you mean it. Your sleep is not a place to scrimp and save. Buy the mattress you can afford.

6. It’s all about you. Buy what feels good for you, not anyone else.

DON’Ts

1. Don’t just test your mattress by pressing on the side. Lay down, relax, roll around, and close your eyes. Imagine what it would be like to sleep on this mattress.

2. Don’t just look at coil count. It’s all about feel.

3. Don’t forget to check the warranty before you leave the store.

4. Don’t shop just anywhere. Shop at a reputable mattress store.

The perfect bed is bliss indeed.
