Silent Toxins in the Bedroom

Sleep is very important for your body to recharge and rejuvenate. Toxins, both chemical and electronic, impede good sleep.  An organic mattress is one of the best ways to eliminate chemical toxins from your home - especially from your bedroom. Many conventional products such as mattresses, furniture and carpets, have flame retardants.  A natural rubber mattress surrounded with organic cotton and wool as the flame retardant is not only super comfy, it’s a healthy sleep environment.

Many of us are “plugged in’’ too many hours a day.  Studies show that eliminating EMFs (electromagnetic fields) help you unwind.  For at least an hour before bedtime, turn off your television, computer and cell phone (or, eliminate them from your bedroom altogether).  

You don’t want to be awake for hours because your brain is still on overdrive.  Electronics are one of the biggest environmental toxins.  The best way to fall asleep is to be relaxed.  A comfortable, natural rubber mattress will contour to your body and allow you to get a good night’s sleep.  

Getting into a routine is important for relaxing, so it’s good to know what helps switch your brain off.  Try these:

  1. Turn off all electronics
  2. Create a bedtime routine
  3. Read (put down the electronics!)
  4. Take a hot bath or shower
  5. Develop a relaxation exercise
