Sleeping in a dark room can improve Depression and Sleep Apnea symptoms

Posted on Oct 01, 2013

Do you or someone you know suffer from Sleep Apnea? What about depression? This article from Bed Times suggests that there may be a correlation between the two and that the lighting while you sleep may be to blame.  It seems the solution may be as simple as sleeping in a very dark room.

The article explains: “Scientists at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have found exposure to dim light at night can interact with sleep apnea and lead to increased levels of depression and anxiety in mice.”

Luckily, sleep lighting is an easy fix.  Updating your drapes, turning off the television at bedtime and avoiding brightly-lit alarm clocks will reduce exposure to light and improve depression and sleep apnea symptoms.

Is Gel the new Memory Foam?

Posted on Aug 21, 2013

Mattress technology grows by leaps and bounds every year.  You've heard of Memory Foam mattresses, but have your heard of Gel Foam mattresses?  With minimal motion disturbance and enhanced pressure point relief, Gel Foam mattresses are the next level of foam technology.

Like Memory Foam, Gel Foam responds to heat and weight, conforming to the body and relieving pressure on sensitive joints like the shoulders and hips.  When heat and weight are removed, the mattress instantly returns to its original shape. 

The biggest difference between Gel and Memory Foam is how they handle body heat.  Some Memory Foam mattresses have a reputation of "sleeping hot", Gel Foam mattresses dissipate body heat allowing for a cooler night's sleep. 

Visit our Savannah showroom to feel the difference of a Gel Foam mattress first-hand.  Gel Foam mattresses are included in our Luxury tier level and are up to 75% off retail prices every day. 

Tier 5: Luxury
Twin - $499 | Full - $699 | Queen - $799 | King - $899
