The Best Mattress Toppers For Every Sleep Style & Preference

While new pillows or a new set of sheets can do a lot to improve how you sleep at night, those small changes aren’t always enough if there are bigger issues at play, like bad alignment or chronic pain. Of course a new mattress from one of the best brands would certainly overhaul your sleeping experience, but that kind of investment isn’t always on the table. Instead, consider choosing one of the best mattress toppers to help make your bed more comfortable, so you can get better sleep. 

If you’re not familiar with mattress toppers, they’re essentially layers of padding, made of down or memory foam or wool, to add to the top of your existing mattress. And while the first mattress toppers might not have offered much in the way of additional cushioning, today’s mattress toppers can really make a difference in your immediate sleeping surface and the

Wuhan fans ‘can’t sleep’ before first match since virus

Fans of Wuhan Zall, the Chinese football club from the epicentre of the coronavirus, will Sunday attend their first match since lockdown — and many were so excited they couldn’t sleep.

For some, like Gao Yajun, it is the first time they have left the central city of Wuhan since the coronavirus emerged there late last year.

The 42-year-old is a Wuhan Zall fanatic who has her nails painted in their orange-and-white colours, an orange streak in her hair and a face mask with the team’s fiery emblem.

“I don’t think I can fall asleep tonight, we couldn’t even get to sleep last night because we were so excited,” Gao said on the eve of the Chinese Super League (CSL) clash against title contenders Beijing Guoan in Suzhou, near Shanghai.

“I saw that everyone else was awake too, chatting in the (online) group.

“And then at 4:00 am someone said,

Why We Buy In to the Big Business of Sleep

In a small room without windows, I am instructed to breathe in sync with a colorful bar on a screen in front of me. Six counts in. Six counts out. Electrodes tie me to a machine whirring on the table. My hands and feet are bare, wiped clean and placed atop silver boards. My finger is pinched by an oximeter, my left arm squeezed by a blood-pressure cuff. Across from me, a woman with a high ponytail, scrublike attire and soft eyes smiles encouragingly. She is not a doctor, and this is not a lab. The air smells like lavender and another fruity scent I later learn is cassis. My chair is made of woven reeds, topped with a thick cushion and a pillow for lumbar support. The windowless room feels more cozy than claustrophobic; this is not torture but a luxury. I am, in fact, in a five-star resort

Most people spend about one-third of their day asleep. While scientists are still unsure exactly why we need sleep, they do know it rejuvenates the body and mind, making it critical for our daily functions. And a lack of sleep leads to cognitive impairments that you might not even notice, which may make it difficult to know if you are well-rested. 

Red flags you’re not getting enough sleep

Ashley Ingiosi, a neuroscientist researching sleep at Washington State University, says there are a couple of indicators that you can look out for to determine if you’re catching enough zzz’s.
