Cheers to a Good Night’s Sleep
Before raising your glass, think twice about how your alcohol consumption may affect your sleep. While many wine connoisseurs think a glass of merlot is the perfect ‘night cap,’ research proves otherwise. 1. Alcohol exacerbates breathing problems. After a few drinks, you are more likely to encounter snoring and sleep apnea. 2. Alcohol also inhibits your deep REM sleep, the stage of sleep in which you are most likely to dream. 3. Sleep after a few cocktails tends to be more fragmented and less rejuvenating overall. 4. If you’re normally an 8-hour sleeper and you sleep 6 hours, the impact on performance is comparable to .05 alcohol level. In all, a few less cocktails may be the best recipe for a good night’s sleep, especially if you’re hoping for sweet dreams. Find a Sleep Number mattress store near you, and find out how SleepIQ™ technology can help if you're having trouble sleeping. Read More

Napping on the Job?
Let’s face it, most of us would opt for a mid-day nap. In fact, one in four Americans would prefer to, but modern workplace environments are less than supportive of the idea. If you find yourself getting drowsy during the day, try taking a lap around the office or head out for a healthy afternoon snack instead of sitting at your the desk. Changing your environment and resting your brain, even if for a few minutes, can actually help recharge your creativity. If you do nap, don’t nap within one to three hours of bed time. To avoid waking up in the middle of a sleep cycle, aim for 25 minutes as the shortest. Otherwise 90-110 minutes gets you through a full sleep cycle so you wake feeling more rested. Read More
