Sleep. It’s such a simple thing, yet only 65% of Americans get enough. Whatever the reason sleep may elude you, we all know how we feel after a poor night’s rest. Movements and reactions are slower, our head feels foggy, and it’s hard to engage with the outside world.

Getting less than 5 hours of sleep a night significantly raises the risk of heart disease and stroke, obesity, developing adult onset diabetes, and cancer. Chronic lack of sleep can also age skin noticeable and negatively affect libido, and that’s just the physical. Mentally and emotionally, lack of sleep causes major cognitive issues, making people prone to simple (but potentially dangerous) mistakes and judgment calls, and can cause emotional fortitude to plummet, allowing unhappiness, irritation, and even depression to take hold.

But there’s hope. In many cases, poor sleeping habits can be reversed simply by creating a “sleep-friendly” bedroom. By clearing out the clutter, hanging room-darkening curtains, keeping sound to a minimum, and banning distracting electronics, you’re already well on your way. However, if you’re missing a comfortable, supportive, and high-quality mattress, you’re missing what 93% of adults believe is essential for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Unfortunately, there’s no “one size fits all” mattress to rush out and buy, so how do you find the perfect mattress? A lot of it comes down to personal comfort. We proudly offer a wide range of quality mattresses, but Tempur-Pedic and Restonic are the “cream of the crop” when it comes to elite sleep systems. Tempur-Pedic offers a variety of firmness levels and will adapt to your build, weight, and sleep style, eliminating uncomfortable pressure points. It also responds quickly to minimize motion transfer, so if you share your bed, you won’t jostle each other awake. Restonic mattresses are of impressive quality, and first came into production in 1938; individually handcrafted to keep their standards high. From latex to innerspring to hybrid to memory foam, Restonic offers an amazing variety of options to make your sleep pain-free and help you wake alert and refreshed.

Sleep is an important part of the day and contributes to overall physical, mental, and emotional health. The wrong mattress can steal precious hours and set us up for chronic sleep deprivation, causing health problems down the road. Come by Miller Bros.
