As parents, the truth is we have many responsibilities! If you’re like me, you are running non-stop during waking hours. However, did you know laying our heads on our pillow and closing our eyes each night proves to be one of the most important steps we can take to stay healthy. According to a recent Sleep Number® survey, Americans are getting an average of 6.7 hours of sleep, which is well below the recommended eight hours—some are even getting less than four hours a night! I am actually one of those people that are lucky to get a full 4-5 hours of sleep each night before my alarm goes off at 4:45 each morning. Lately the lack of sleep I am getting is starting to take a toll not only on my physical health but mental health as well. This has led me to try to find better ways to get the full eight hours of sleep I need, but also find ways to improve the quality of sleep I do get! So when I heard about how easy Sleep Number® makes tracking your sleep with SleepIQ® technology, I was very interested in learning more! The truth is I have been watching the Sleep Number® info-commercials for years and like many people, it’s been on my wish list ever since. However, I wasn’t sure if I could actually afford it or if it was even worth the price until now.
This weekend we headed to our local store, so we could actually see the beds first hand and test them out! When we walked in the store, we were greeted by Mandy, who is actually the store manager in the Mall of GA store.
She let us try all the bed models and answered all our questions. She explained everything in detail. She was very patient with us and answered all our questions even though this was a busy Saturday afternoon, and the store was packed. We also found out our sleep number, She mentioned that our sleep number might change on different models but mine never changed. My sleep number is a 40 on them all. My husband’s sleep number actually changed on a few models but not by much. His numbers were 45-50. We were really impressed, and I can honestly say I no longer have any doubts. We loved all the models, but my favorite was i10!
He didn’t have a favorite and said he wouldn’t mind having either of them! My husband doesn’t easily agree when it comes to big purchases, but he was actually more ready to buy than I was. If it was up to him we would have bought one before walking out of the store. So, ladies, I am sure you know that says a lot!
We were amazed about how the sensors work directly with advanced DualAir™ technology inside the Sleep Number bed which measures average breathing rate, average heart rate, movement, and even bed presence to show you the quality of your sleep. SleepIQ® data helps identify routines and factors that affect sleep. Using an intuitive activity tracker, you can monitor things like caffeine intake, diet, exercise, television, media usage, and medications. You can use this knowledge to identify trends and make changes over time; from the ideal comfort, firmness and support of your bed – your SLEEP NUMBER® setting, to adjusting daily routines like diet and exercise. The best part there is nothing to wear, nothing to turn on, and SleepIQ® technology is available with all Sleep Number beds! We didn’t decide to buy this weekend since we had the kids, and they were ready to go but I did get quotes, and all the other information that I needed. I even got a email this morning with my IndividualFit℠ image!
This gives us time to really think about this more before actually purchasing, but I think it’s safe to say that we are really considering it. I have never seen my husband so excited about a bed before! He talked about it for the rest of the day and I even overheard him talking to his friend on the phone about it! I think that it’s safe to say he is ready to purchase now, because he has really been persuading me hard to me to join this investment! He does make some great arguments that I tend to agree with …quality of sleep is important and with Sleep Number® 25 year warranty it’s worth it. Plus with partner snore technology, I would no longer have to kick or yell to make him stop! So if you have been thinking about a Sleep Number® be sure to go test them out! You will be amazed just like we were! Use the Sleep Number store locator today to find the store closest to you!
