Track That Sleep

Hey y’all! I often talk to all of you about body positivity and menswear but today let’s talk about SLEEP! We all do it, it’s natural. We all have different sleep patterns, sleep comforts and sleep routines. Personally I’m a night owl! I’ve always been that way since I was a kid. I like sleeping on soft mattresses too. This is why I chose the Tempur Luxe Breeze in soft. I like to have the comfort of a pillow at the end of the bed near my feet.
Since partnering with Tempur-Pedic I’ve learned so much about the science of sleeping and how their technological advances have helped me get better sleep. The Tempur Ergo Smart Base powered by Sleeptracker-AI tracks your movements, heart and breathing rates while you sleep. The smart base has different head and foot lift positions too. For instance my wife sprained her ankle really bad and was sleeping with her foot elevated on the bed with pillows. Now thanks to the Ergo Smart Base she can raise the foot of her bed to the desired level of elevation for her comfort. This way the pillows aren’t moving around and getting shifted through the night. And since we have a split mattress, she can personalize her adjustments as she needs without affecting mine!
Now my wife says I snore a lot and loud (lol) so the feature that can detect snoring is more for her than me! I love this because the bed adjusts on its own and didn’t wake me (or Michele) up!! The Ergo Smart Base powered by Sleeptracker-AI helps you keep track of your sleeping patterns, provides you sleep metrics and a Tempur-Pedic sleep score for you to keep up with. The metrics consist of the time you fell asleep, amount of times you woke up in the night along with the time periods it identifies as deep sleep, light sleep and REM sleep. This information is helpful to me because it helps you keep track of how you’re sleeping during the week. I will say that I feel genuinely a lot better in the mornings (less groggy).
If I woke up feeling great one day I can look at my personal metrics and see if anything was different from my past days and vice versa. This is a unique way for you to stay on top of your sleeping patterns. It has truly helped me be more aware of mine. This Sleeptracker app is a GAME CHANGER! I look forward to keeping up with all the metrics and comparing them week by week to get better sleep night in and night out.
*Bed raises once approximately 12 degrees in response to snoring. This may reduce snoring in otherwise healthy individuals who snore due to body positioning.*
