Six Ways to Get a Better Night’s Sleep

From its beginnings as a specialty sheet producer for the trucking industry 30 years ago, GBS Enterprises has grown into a business that offers pest control services, furniture warranty services, and healthy sleep products. GBS Enterprises is committed to understanding its customers’ needs and delivering quality products and services.

A good night’s sleep is important because it affects all aspects of personal health. The National Sleep Foundation offers six tips that can contribute to more restful sleep:

1. Maintain a regular sleep schedule on weekdays and weekends. The regulation of your body clock can help you get to sleep and stay asleep more easily.

2. Develop a routine for bedtime. A quiet and relaxing activity at bedtime can help separate sleep time from daytime excitement and stress.

3. Avoid naps if you have difficulty falling asleep at night.

4. Exercise every day.

5. Make your room conducive to sleep. For instance, maintain a nighttime room temperature of about 67 degrees, eliminate distracting noises, and reduce ambient light using blackout shades or an eye mask.

6. Use a mattress and pillows that are comfortable and allergen free.

Three Tips to Help You Fall Asleep

GBS Enterprises is dedicated to providing high-quality sleep products as well as protection services for furniture and mattresses. Founded in 1988, GBS Enterprises began as a producer of specialty sheets before expanding into sleep products that help improve sleep quality.

Falling asleep at night can be incredibly difficult for some people. Sleep experts offer a number of tips to help people get to sleep, such as avoiding caffeine and minimizing blue light exposure before bedtime. Here are more tips to consider to help you fall asleep as quickly as possible.

1. Create an optimal place for sleep. Your surroundings play a major role in your quality of sleep. Minimizing ambient noise and lowering the temperature in the bedroom will make you comfortable enough to doze off in the shortest amount of time.

2. Make sure that the mattress and beddings are clean. Change sheets once a week to avoid mites. If possible, invest in a mattress protector, one that helps protect against moisture and bacteria development.

3. Use the right pillows. Part of turning the bedroom into a sleep-inducing area involves using the proper pillows for you. Choose ones based on your sleeping posture to help achieve the comfort required to easily drift off.

The Importance of Pillows in Preventing Head and Neck Pain

GBS Enterprises specializes in specialty sleep products and pillow, mattress, and furniture protection plans. One of the flagship product lines of GBS Enterprises is Healthy Sleep Ultra-Tech, which includes chiropractor-recommended pillows designed to reduce head and neck pain. 

A good pillow can help keep your upper body aligned while you sleep and alleviate common forms of neck, back, and shoulder pain. One of the main things to consider when you choose a pillow is its ability to keep your neck curved slightly forward. 

If a pillow is overstuffed, your neck will bend abnormally forward when you sleep on your side or on your back, which strains your shoulders and neck. An overstuffed pillow can also result in obstructed breathing by narrowing your air pipe.

While lying on your back, your pillow should support the natural curvature of the spine and provide adequate support to your head, neck, and shoulders. Keep in mind, however, that your pillow should be thicker if you regularly sleep on your side.

The Importance of a Mattress Protector

For more than 30 years. GBS Enterprises has offered pillow and mattress protection plans through furniture and mattress stores, as well as for use in the health care and hospitality industries. GBS Enterprises’ plans offer added protection for consumers, giving them peace of mind that their product will be repaired or replaced if damaged over the course of 5-10 years. 

To extend the life of a mattress and to protect from numerous allergens, mattress protectors are essential accessories. Over time, mattresses absorb sweat, dead skin, oil, and moisture. According to research by Ohio State University, a typical used mattress may contain between 100,000 and 10 million mites. A mattress protector is a simple, affordable way to create a layer of protection between body and mattress, in addition to keeping the mattress in “like new” condition for longer. Moreover, a mattress protector will preserve the mattress’ warranty by protecting from stains, which typically void a warranty.

Simple Ways to Give Your Couch a Facelift

GBS Enterprises offers high-quality healthy sleep products and furniture warranty services. From its headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida, GBS Enterprises works to provide protection for all types of furniture, such as area rugs, outdoor furniture, and living room staples like couches. 

The couch is one of the main features of a living room. If your old couch is starting to show its age, and buying a new one isn’t in your budget, try some of the following methods for giving a dated couch a facelift:

- Add new throw pillows. Changing the throw pillows on your couch is one of the easiest ways to improve its appearance. While throw pillows come in many creative varieties, decorating experts recommend keeping the number of pillows on your couch to around three to avoid a cluttered, overloaded look.

- Stuff saggy cushions. A simple trick to make your couch look new is using foam wraps or cotton batting to wrap the original stuffing inside of cushions that have deflated. This puffs up the cushions and makes them more comfortable to sit on. As you wrap, spray adhesive onto each layer to prevent it from shifting around and making the cushion lumpy.

- Change the legs. Although it may seem like an unimportant part of a couch, the legs play a big role in the overall appearance of your sofa. If you have outdated couch legs, try swapping them out with more modern ones to update the look. Couch legs typically screw off and on easily, and numerous retailers sell replacement sofa legs for less than $50 per set. You can also paint your couch’s old legs to tie them in with the color palette of your living room.
