From kindergarten to college, sleep is critical for academic success. Which products will enhance your child or teenager’s sleep? We’ve gathered a few choices of healthy items within a variety of budget ranges.
Let’s start with college students. Dorm room beds typically use a TwinXL (39” x 80”) size of bedding which can be tricky to find, especially in organic or natural fibers. Mattress pads, sheets, blankets, and pillows can create a cozy, comfortable and healthy environment for sleep. Organic linens and wool fibers can help to regulate heat and be a little more breathable than synthetics Organic mattress encasements ensure a clean and healthy environment, and if you are able, a mattress topper can provide an extra layer of cushion. An air purifier can be helpful to those with allergies or chemical sensitivities.
For your teenager at home
Remember when your child transitioned to a big bed — 10 or 12 years ago — or more? Perhaps it’s time to replace that mattress to give your teen a great night of sleep. We feature beds in a wide price range. Our mattresses are made from natural or organic latex, organic wool, and organic cotton. None of our beds use toxic flame-retardant chemicals; therefore, they constitute an excellent choice for those with multiple chemical sensitivities. Also, organic items can keep your student warm without overheating because the fibers are natural and breathe. Many of our items are hypo-allergenic and work well for students with allergies. All of this combines for a deeper, more restful night of sleep.
For your child
Perhaps a soft new pair of sheets or a new pillow would be a treat which would help encourage a longer night of sleep? We have a variety of options, from soft jersey to crisp percale, and pillows which come in a variety of sizes and fills.
These items can help your student get the deep sleep they need. Getting healthy sleep is critical to your child’s health and ability to assimilate information, so an investment in their sleep surroundings is an investment in their future. And let’s face it — your student needs all the peaceful and healthy rest he or she can get – whether in college or at home!
