  1. Simple Strategies for Fighting Insomnia

    Few things are as frustrating as lying awake in bed for hours on end, trying desperately to fall asleep. If you’ve been experiencing insomnia on a long-term basis, it might be time to talk to your doctor about what might be causing it. Medical treatments may help break the cycle of sleeplessness. There are also plenty of tricks you can try at home to beat your insomnia, starting with replacing your old, worn-out mattress.  

    Visit a mattress store. 

    Sleep is so important for your health. When you’re chronically sleep deprived, you’re placing yourself at a higher risk of diseases like obesity and high blood pressure. Quality sleep is worth making an investment, so visit a mattress store to shop for a bed that will cradle you in comfort all night long. 

    Get away from screens. 

    Many people like to watch TV before going to bed, and many of them keep their smartphones next to the bed. If this describes you, it’s time to reduce your exposure to screens. Shut off your electronic devices, including your smartphone, at least an hour before bedtime. If you have a TV in your bedroom, move it somewhere else. Instead, spend the time reading a book or a magazine, or doing some gentle yoga moves. 

    Stick to the same schedule. 

    One of the reasons why so many people struggle with insomnia is that they follow different schedules on the weekends compared to the work week. Get into the habit of waking up and going to bed at the same time every day, even if you’re on vacation. Your brain will get accustomed to the routine, and you’ll be rewarded with better sleep. 

    Avoid alcohol. 

    People who struggle with insomnia sometimes resort to a nightcap to help themselves drift off to sleep. Although alcohol might help you fall to sleep initially, it has a tendency to wake you up throughout the night. Skip the alcoholic beverage and instead relax with a cup of decaffeinated tea.

  2. Finding the Right Recliner for Your Space

    Before you head to a furniture and mattress store to pick out a new recliner, you should have a firm idea of what you’re looking for. Space is one of the most important considerations. Measure the length and width of the space you’ve designated for the new recliner. Write these numbers down to make your search at the furniture and mattress store more productive.  

    Then, take a step back and consider the room as a whole. What is your existing décor like? Do you have a flowered couch or a leather sofa? Is the room light and airy or cozy and comfortable? You might want to take a few pictures with your smartphone. At the store, you can view the pictures and visualize how a particular recliner would look in that space. 

    You’ll find every type of recliner imaginable at Mancini’s Sleepworld—from power lift chairs to space-saving chairs to swivel rockers. Visit one of our 33 furniture and mattress stores in northern California or call a friendly associate at (800) 647-5337 to inquire about our current inventory. 

  3. Finding a Futon Mattress

    Futons are perfect for studio apartments, guest rooms, and many other places, thanks to their dual-usage design. Finding the right mattress is key to getting the most use out of your futon, and since it has to be used as both a seating cushion and a traditional mattress, there are lots of things to consider. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when selecting a mattress for a futon.   Start by considering how often your futon will be used as a bed as opposed to seating. If you’ll only be using it as a bed occasionally, focus more on the feel of the mattress for seating rather than sleeping. The thickness of the mattress will partially depend on the look of the futon itself, as a thick mattress looks better on a substantial, solid furniture base, and thin mattresses look better on modern, sleek designs. A mattress cover is a good addition to enhance the appearance of your futon and protect the mattress itself.   Start your mattress shopping at Mancini’s Sleepworld, where you’ll find an enormous selection of high-quality brands.

  5. Mattress Shopping Tips for People with Allergies

    Finding the right mattress is always a tricky proposition, but for people with allergies, it can be even more difficult. In addition to finding the right kind of support, you also have to consider the impact your mattress can have on your symptoms and find one that isn’t likely to exacerbate them. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, here are some of the things to keep in mind as you evaluate your options.   Know the Causes of Mattress-Related Allergies  Allergy triggers can be far-reaching, but when it comes to mattresses, there are a few common culprits. One is the chemical components in the mattress materials. By law, mattresses have to have some kind of fire retardant, and some of the chemicals used for this purpose can trigger allergy symptoms. Likewise, the materials used to make the mattress, including foam and latex, can cause some people to experience difficulties with allergies. Check the components of any mattress you are considering, and avoid those with known allergens.   Other causes of mattress-related allergies come from an outside source that gets trapped in the mattress, such as pet dander, dust mites, mold, and mildew. Keeping pets out of the bed and cleaning your mattress regularly will reduce these issues.   Talk to Your Doctor  If you see an allergy specialist, there is a good chance that he or she has helped other patients deal with mattress issues. As such, he or she may be able to recommend brands and materials that have worked well for other patients and suggest things you should avoid. He or she can also offer personalized advice based on your needs.   Don’t Ignore Comfort  Finding a mattress that won’t exacerbate your allergies is important, but don’t ignore comfort just because you think a mattress is good for your allergies. An uncomfortable mattress will interfere with your sleep just like allergy symptoms will. Take the time to find a mattress that meets all of your needs, so you can sleep soundly.   Whatever your mattress needs, Mancini’s Sleepworld has what you’re looking for. Our selection includes some of the top brands in the industry, including Serta and Sealy. Visit one of our 33 California locations or call (800) 647-5337 for more information. 
  6. FAQs About Hybrid Mattresses

    When most people shop for mattresses, they assume that they have to make a big decision between innerspring and memory foam. Although this used to be the case, now there is a third way: hybrid mattresses. With a hybrid mattress, you can get the best of both worlds by combining qualities of both innerspring and foam or latex mattress styles. Since many people are unfamiliar with these kinds of mattresses, they often have questions. Here are the answers to the queries that people tend to have about hybrid mattress styles.   What is a hybrid mattress?  As the name suggests, a hybrid mattress is a blend of two different mattress styles—in this case, innerspring and memory foam or latex. These kinds of mattresses have the same kind of coil set-up as innerspring mattresses, but they are enveloped inside a memory foam or latex outer layer. From the outside, the mattress looks like any other kind of mattress—the difference is only noticeable when you stretch out on it.   What are the benefits of a hybrid mattress?  Hybrid mattresses bring together the things that people like about both kinds of mattresses. Some people like the comfort of memory foam but miss the bounce and give of an innerspring mattress, while others feel like the support they get from innerspring feels good but they like the top-level softness of memory foam. With a hybrid mattress, you get both: memory foam cushioning and the bounce and give of innersprings.   Who should consider a hybrid mattress?  As with any kind of mattress, the best way to decide if a hybrid is right for you is to test a few out in a mattress store. Hybrid mattresses are good for people who are looking for pressure point support with the feel of a traditional mattress and for couples who can’t agree on which kind of mattress is the best.   Come feel the comfort of hybrid mattresses for yourself by visiting one of the 33 locations of Mancini’s Sleepworld in Northern California.

  7. What Are the Benefits of Adjustable Beds?

    Adjustable beds have frames that can lift upwards and tilt back, usually at both the head and the feet. At one time, these kinds of beds were only available in hospital settings, but now, you can get them in attractive styles and a variety of sizes for home use. There are several advantages to sleeping on an adjustable bed. Could this kind of bed be the answer to your sleepless nights? Here is a look at some of the benefits of having an adjustable bed.  Reduced Back Pain  Back pain is notorious for keeping people up at night. Even with a supportive mattress, it can be hard to maintain a comfortable sleeping position on the flat surface of a traditional bed. With an adjustable bed, you can adjust the position of your head and legs until you find the right angle to alleviate the compression of the nerves in your back that is to blame for your pain. You’ll wake up well-rested and without the discomfort that you’re used to with your traditional bed.   Improved Sleep Apnea  Sleep apnea is linked to a long of health problems, from heart disease to type 2 diabetes. If you have sleep apnea, your snoring is also likely to interrupt your partner’s sleep and prevent him or her from getting an adequate amount of rest. Sleep apnea is exacerbated by lying flat since that is when the muscles in the throat collapse on the airway. With an adjustable bed, you can ensure that your head stays propped up, enhancing the effectiveness of your sleep apnea treatment.   Less Insomnia  If you suffer from insomnia, then you know how difficult it can be to find the perfect level of comfort that allows you to relax and sleep peacefully. An adjustable bed allows you to do just that. Find the perfect position that allows your body to relax, so you can finally get the restful sleep you need.   Browse the enormous selection of adjustable beds, mattresses, bedding, and more at Mancini’s Sleepworld.

Watch this video to learn more.   Men and women differ on their attitudes about changing their sheets, with women pulling them off to wash them more frequently than men.

  10. Comparing Innerspring and Memory Foam Mattresses

    Mattresses used to only come in one style with very little variation, but today, there are a variety of different mattresses on the market with styles for every kind of sleeper. Two of the most popular mattress designs are innerspring and memory foam, and while they both offer quality and comfort, they are not interchangeable. Which style is best suited to the way you sleep? This comparison will help you decide.   Innerspring Mattresses  Innerspring mattresses have an inner core of steel coil springs that are surrounded by padding and other upholstery. The coils come in different shapes, sizes, and resistance levels. The differences in coils plus the differences in the types and amounts of padding used determine the level of firmness of the mattress.   Innerspring mattresses tend to be the most affordable, and they offer a great level of support for people who have issues such as back pain. A drawback for some people is that the springs don’t absorb any motion, so when a sleep partner moves around, you feel it. Innerspring mattresses can be a good choice for anyone, but people who are back sleepers tend to find them especially comfortable.   Memory Foam  Memory foam mattresses are usually more expensive than innerspring mattresses. They are made up of varying numbers of layers of polyurethane foam, depending on the firmness of the mattress. The foam shapes to the body, creating a cradle-like feeling that many sleepers find comfortable. The foam also absorbs motion, so the movements of your sleep partner won’t disturb you.   One complaint that some people have about memory foam is that retains heat, so it may not be ideal for hot sleepers. Some people also dislike the feeling of sinking into memory foam as a matter of personal preference.  Which mattress is the right fit for you? Visit Mancini’s Sleepworld to try out a variety of mattresses from some of the leading manufacturers in the business, including Serta, Kluft, and Beautyrest. We have 33 locations in Northern California for your convenience, so visit one of our mattress stores or call (800) 647-5337 to learn more.
