How Hard Is It To Get A Good Night's Sleep?

By Ryan Gordon

Today, you can’t turn on the TV or do a web search without being inundated with pitches for beds. And what’s the promise from all of them? A better night’s sleep. Statistics verify the problem. According to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), nearly 35 percent of Americans aren’t getting enough shut-eye. The consequences can be serious, including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stress and even heart disease.

The only problem is, many who are rushing in with bedding solutions have made getting a good night’s sleep too complex. You shouldn’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to make your bed work. As someone in the business of bedding, my philosophy is that sleep should be easy.

According to a recent survey on Boomers, products that most appeal to aging populations are likely to be well designed, functional and meet boomer’s needs, but not feel, Boomer-only. Adjustable beds are a perfect example. They can alleviate a range of ailments – from back pain to acid reflux – but with their high tech entertainment features, still appeal to everyone. I would add; ease of use makes all the difference. Who among us hasn’t struggled with the “one-hour assembly” that turns into a whole day?

Kalmia’s mission is simple; easy to rest, easy to rise. That goes into every component of our products. Our remote is simple. Our mattress adjusts to the body temperature of the sleeper. The mattress cover features 37.5™ microclimate technology for optimum comfort. All that complexity went into the design. We’ve thought of everything — even under-bed lighting to reduce the risk of falls. And as far as assembly goes, we take care of that for our customers with our white glove delivery service. Even the price is designed to lower stress.

Anthony Burgess once said, “Laugh and the world laughs with you — snore and you sleep alone.” Did I mention that our beds reduced sleep apnea as well as other conditions that can complicate sleep? Check out our full line here:
