Both oversleeping and undersleeping can harm us in their own ways. Obviously, we can’t all get the perfect amount of sleep every night. But it’s when either one of these turns into a pattern that we can sometimes be in trouble. When we get the right amount of sleep, our bodies can function in an optimum way. Unfortunately, that can mean the reverse is true if we aren’t getting in the ballpark of 8 hours per night. So, what’s the deal with over and under sleeping?
The words mindfulness and meditation can get thrown around a lot as buzzwords. But what do they actually mean, and what do they look like in practice? We’ve compiled a few of our favorite mindfulness and meditation exercises that can help you re-center yourself, leading to a heightened state of calm. This can help you out both when you’re awake and just before falling asleep on your Milton mattress.
Here at Milton, we’ve been invested in making comfortable and durable mattresses for quite some time. Our grandfather, Milton Smith, first created the company in the 1950’s with the goal of creating quality, affordable mattresses for the community. Some of the largest brands in the US worked with Mr. Smith because of the quality beds his organization lovingly built. Even more importantly, they did so because of his integrity and comforting “voice of reason” that flowed throughout every point of contact at the company.
The modern workday can look a lot different than it used to. When your company’s been around for 70 years, it gives you a chance to notice just how much things have changed. In the last decade, a lot of folks have swapped more active jobs on their feet for something a little more desk oriented. That couldn’t be truer than now, with more people working remotely than ever before.
