En­sure you get a good night’s sleep

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Alan and Denise Pre­ston from Bed­Post in Dunedin are the folks who know beds in­side out and are the place to go to for ex­pert ad­vice and great deals on ev­ery­thing to do with beds. They can show you how to get a good night’s sleep be­cause they re­ally know their stuff. So much so, that the Pre­stons, have gone from be­ing the ’new kids’ in the in­dus­try, to now be­ing the two most ex­pe­ri­enced and knowl­edge­able bed­ding sales­peo­ple in Dunedin with 15 years ex­pe­ri­ence in the bed in­dus­try. The Pre­stons say that it has be­come in­creas­ingly ob­vi­ous to them that sleep in our so­ci­ety is hugely un­der­val­ued and peo­ple are con­stantly un­der­min­ing it with their life­style choices. Cur­rent re­search also in­di­cates that qual­ity of sleep has more in­flu­ence on our health and well be­ing than even diet or ex­er­cise. The Pre­ston’s now re­alise that through help­ing peo­ple in designing their sleep en­vi­ron­ment they can fa­cil­i­tate ma­jor changes in the qual­ity of peo­ples’ lives A range of truths and mis­con­cep­tions of what con­trib­utes to a great nights’ sleep:

You get what you pay for in a bed - im­prov­ing spring tech­nol­ogy, spring den­si­ties, bet­ter qual­ity com­po­nents, in­creased com­fort and sup­port, all come with a price

Beds are de­signed to last for 8 to 12 years and you change as you get older be­cause your needs change. A se­cond­hand bed is an­other per­son’s re­ject. A good sup­port­ive bed is the best op­tion. There is no uni­ver­sal Best bed, what’s right for one per­son is not nec­es­sar­ily right for some­one else.

Syn­thetic bed­ding is al­ways the best for Al­ler­gies - False

Many nat­u­ral bed­ding prod­ucts such as wool, feather and down and cot­ton are a good choice be­cause of closer weave fab­rics and treat­ments.

Air­ing bed­ding, pe­ri­odic hot washes of sheets, vac­u­um­ing your mat­tress and us­ing pro­tec­tors that are both mois­ture and dust mite proof, will help keep your bed healthy.
