How To Stop Your Bedroom From Making You Sick

We sleep, on average, about seven hours a night—which means that we spend way more time in our bedroom than we do in any other space. It follows, then, that the bedroom is a linchpin for your overall health: If your sleeping space is dusty, stuffy, or generally unclean, how can you expect to stay well?

When I started waking up every morning with a stuffy nose and a sinus headache, I sensed something might have been wrong with my space. Here are a few practices I put in place in my bedroom to tackle the problem and make my bedroom a healthier space…

The Best Mattresses in a Box — The Guide 2018

It used to be that the only way to get a mattress required going to a mattress store and testing them out on-site, with a persistent and persuasive salesman on hand pushing you to buy. The whole process was inconvenient and costly, so it’s no wonder that companies found a new (and seriously successful) way to sell mattresses—direct-to-consumer, and delivered in a box. This strategy results in lower prices and better convenience. All of these companies offer free trial periods (the typical number is 100 days) so you can be even more sure of your choice than if you had tested out for a few minutes in a showroom.

This model has been so successful that the market is saturated with options—so much so that choosing one has become an increasingly impossible task. Through weeks of research and testing, we rounded up 10 of our favorites for you to check out and get started on achieving the bed (and sleep) of your dreams — plus, they’re ALL on sale for Memorial Day Weekend!

The Best Sound Machines — The Guide 2018

Loud neighbors, city noises, snoring partners — sleep is precious, and all of these things can disrupt it. Some of you may be deep sleepers who regularly sleep through alarms, while the rest of us are jolted awake by alarm clocks going off in other rooms (and apartments — looking at you, upstairs neighbor). One solution is a sound machine that will mask unwanted, annoying noises with gentle nature sounds or white noise.

These are great for apartment and city living, but also for infants who can’t stay asleep, people who need help focusing at work, night shift workers who need to sleep while everyone else is awake, and even tinnitus sufferers who need relief from the ringing in their ears. Whether you’re looking to spend a little or splurge, here are ten of our favorite options on the market.
