You work all day, running like a well-oiled machine, making decisions, answering questions and just doing life. At the end of the day you’re ready for a good night’s sleep – in fact, it’s vital to how much you’ll accomplish tomorrow.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, stages 2 and 3 are most important to your body’s renewal. During the 2nd stage your heart and vascular system get a much-needed rest, whereas the 3rd stage is more of a restorative stage of sleep, breathing slows, blood pressure drops, blood flows to the muscles and tissue is repaired.
During REM sleep your body provides energy to your brain and body, supporting positive work performance. This is the area that will enable your brain to function more acutely the next day.
A good night’s rest is the goal. Not just every now and then, but every night. And what better way to enjoy those night hours, than to wrap yourself in a lovely luxurious sheets? Go ahead, try one for 90 days, risk free, and see for yourself. Feel great, perform better, and live longer – sleep well.
