We have all heard it before; to live a healthy lifestyle, we must eat right and exercise regularly. According to the Better Sleep Council, a healthy lifestyle also includes sleeping well because it helps us feel our best during the day. When we feel our best, we are able to function well in our home and work life. Why is sleep so important? It is important because that is when the body gets to rest and re-energize itself and the brain consolidates the day’s learning and stores it into memory. According to an article in Psychology Today, how soon we sleep after learning new information will determine how well that information is retained in our memories. That is why teachers often tell students to get a good night’s sleep before an exam instead of staying up late to cram.
But, of course, getting a good night’s sleep is easier said than done. For some of us, it could be restless young children keeping us awake at night. For others it could be worry and stress; worrying about finances, worrying about relationships, worrying about getting or losing a job, you name it. For yet others, it could be that they don’t have problems falling asleep per se. In fact, they even sleep through the night, but they wake up the next morning feeling like they have been hit by a truck. According to the Better Sleep Council, that is because the sort of mattress we have can make a difference in our quality of sleep. Too much tossing and turning in bed or waking up feeling stiff and sore is a sure sign that the mattress we are sleeping on is not the best fit for us. What is needed for a restful night’s sleep is a comfortable and supportive mattress. However, anyone who has shopped for mattresses before will know that they are not cheap.
So where does one go for a good mattress sale ? Online, of course! In today’s digital world, we are lucky to have the Internet because it allows us to do so many things with our fingertips. The best of those things for a busy and tired mother like me is online shopping. Gone are the days when I had all the time and energy in the world to drive from shopping centre to shopping centre, window shopping. And why would I when I can do the same thing from the comfort of my own home? I only have to fire up my laptop, search for online stores and I’m off shopping. The best part about these online stores is that they don’t only sell mattresses, but sell as many as 20,000 other products such as furniture, electronics, kitchenware, fashion, fitness products, fragrances, pet accessories, gifts, etc. As far as quality, they sell the same quality mattresses as any retail mattress store, but at a fraction of the price. They sell the same size mattressestoo, such as Queen size, King size, Double bed, Single size and King Single mattresses. Within each of these categories of mattresses there are even more varieties to choose from (e.g. pocket spring, memory foam, latex pillow top, posture or spinal pedic, etc.) Some also sell air beds that can be used for camping or as a spare mattress for unexpected guests.Besides being a one-stop shop for almost any household item, another thing I like about online shopping is that they deliver my order to my doorstep and they have salespeople who are quick to answer any queries before, during and after sales.Plus, I don’t have to worry about carrying enough cash around because I can pay for my order online via PayPal or through their secure payment process.
Anyone who has been to a retail mattress store will know that buying a good, comfortable and supportive mattress can be an expensive venture. But a wise shopper would buy the same quality mattress online and for further savings, wait for a sale. Many of these online stores rely on word-of-mouth advertising, so customer satisfaction is very important to them. As a result, they have regular sales to reduce their prices even more. So the next time you are in the market for a new mattress to get a restful night’s sleep, why not wait for a mattress sale from one of these online stores?
