You would think I couldn’t learn how to sleep better. Mischa Elman’s wife tells the story about her husband, a violinist, leaving Carnegie Hall by the backstage entrance after rehearsal when approached by tourists looking for the hall’s entrance. They asked, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?”, and we all now know his quick answer was “practice.” It’s how you get good at anything, and I have been practicing sleeping nearly every day my whole life. I was therefore quite surprised at how much I learned about sleeping after learning about Sleep IQ. You can too by finding a store near you using the Sleep Number store locator. Every store has a Sleep Professional who can help you determine your personal Sleep Number. I prefer a higher number Sleep Number than most so my Sleep Number ended up at a 50. From personal experience, I will on occasion prefer a softer bed and lower it especially if I am sore. My nephew, Parker, was diagnosed with leukemia. While he was in the Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Florida, Sleep Number had donated beds to the Ronald McDonald house family members stayed (lived) at while their loved ones were patients net door. It was there I realized I liked several different numbers depending on my stress level. The SleepIQ® technology also tracks your heart rate and respiration rate, and over time will provide you with a clear, concise data set with which to evaluate your health. If I wanted to lower my resting heart rate with an improved sleeping routine this would let me monitor my progress, and would provide suggestions on how to improve my sleeping habits.
SleepIQ® technology lets me know what to adjust for my best sleep. DualAir™ technology sensors in the bed track breathing, heart rates, movement and when you leave the bed. There’s nothing to wear, nothing to turn on, and you don’t have to attach any sensors for the data to be gathered while you are sleeping. You don’t have to turn anything on or off. You do have to have wifi in your bedroom, as the bed is using that to move your data around. It doesn’t require any change in habits, rather it wants you to sleep like you always have. The SleepIQ® technology can be added on to a Sleep Number® beds that did not come with it. You can learn more at Sleep Number’s site, get your own SleepIQ® tech tutorial, and find out why you might need a Sleep Number® bed. Leave me a comment telling me below!
