This Sunday daylight saving time (DST) begins. We will be changing our clocks to “spring” forward one hour. The purpose of DST is to make better use of natural sunlight. It’s actually a myth that the purpose of the time change was to benefit farmers. DST was enacted as a wartime conservation effort.
The camps are pretty divided when it comes to debating the effectiveness of DST. One side says it great because it encourages people to spend more time outside in the daylight, which saves energy. However, those against it argue that negative side effects of DST outweigh the energy saving. This camp argues that changing the clocks causes a loss of sleep, lost productivity, and accidents due to drowsy driving.
So do what it takes to be prepared for losing one hour of sleep this Sunday.
Tips to Get You Back on Track Quickly
~Make sure you are caught up on your sleep before the clocks change.
~Make sure the lights in your room are dim at night to signal to your body that it’s time for bed.
~Avoid evening activates such as drinking caffeine or alcohol too close to bedtime.
~Did someone mention the FloBed natural latex mattress?
Beds Just Right, Pillows Too!
Our Natural Latex Twice Fluffed Pillows are put through the shredder twice to give them optimum loft. Shape them for your sleeping position: higher for your side, neck support when on your back. With two zippered covers (an inner organic sateen cotton and an outer organic Euro-stretch-knit). And, most important of all… our Twice Fluffed Pillows are adjustable: simply open the cover and remove until your pillow is Just Right.
You don’t have to just take our word for it. Below is a review from our customer Sylvia:
“The shredded latex pillow by FloBeds, was a shot in the dark, and I found light! I now have no neck pains. Being able to adjust the pillow for my needs, makes so much since, I took out about 5 handfuls, while my husband left his full, to each his own with the FloBed Dream pillow.”
FloBeds Latex mattresses offering pressure relief for sleepers of all sizes.
Fort Bragg, CA
Imagine you could choose any spot on your body and make your mattress softer or firmer in that exact spot. That is relief, relief a FloBeds vZone Latex Mattress delivers to thousands of sleepers. The genius of the vZone lies in the six adjustable latex zones, all encased in an organic cotton sleeve, within the zippered luxurious Euro-knit organic cotton cover. Most bodies need attention in three areas: shoulders, hips and lumbar.
Need a little softer in your hip zone? Simply open cover, unzip the pocketed hip zone and insert your soft zone. Each sleeper controls their own firmness or pressure relief. www.FloBeds.com provides a “Mattress & Firmness Selector” and ships worldwide.
Add a European Slat Foundation with flexible beach wood slats under the mattress and one finds sleep and comfort most only.
FloBeds is able to make a pure clean mattress by using natural latex from the rubber tree surrounded by organic cotton quilted to organic wool. The wool acts as a fire barrier and passes the Standard for the Flammability of Mattress Sets (Open Flame Test). The new standard required mattresses and foundations to be able to withstand an open flame for 50 seconds on the side and 70 seconds on the top without igniting. Most companies use FR chemicals or other artificial components to pass this test… FloBeds is proud to use only wool to make our mattresses meet this standard. dream of.
Customer reviews cover the gamut from “herniated disk pain gone” to “our son’s FloBed is far cozier and more comfortable than our more expensive Duxiana.”
FloBeds was started by Dave Turner while a student at Stanford University. They sell 90 percent of their beds via www.FloBeds.com which features both a “Goldilocks Firmness Guarantee” and a Money-back Guarantee. Now the mayor of the small Northern California coastal town of Fort Bragg, Turner likes to tell folks that doing business on the internet is a lot like doing business in a small town: if you don’t treat someone fair, everyone will know about it. FloBeds’ focus on customer service before and after the sale seems to be paying off as 2013 saw their best year ever, and sales continue to grow.

Every Day Best Mattress Prices
A mattress made for couples
I love our business. Most of our expertise is consumed in making a mattress that supports each sleeper the way their body needs. But Valentines Day reminds us that we have another very important role: making a mattress that a couple can snuggle, spoon and go through their lives together in. This side of mattress construction means we have to make a mattress that allows crossing over to the other side as natural as sleeping on your own side.
And we do! Every Flobed has two common layers at the top to make side-shifting as easy as rolling over: Our Luxurious Cover of Organic Stretch Knit Cotton quilted to Organic Wool Cover on top of our pressure relieving one piece Convoluted Talalay Latex Comfort Pad.
The perfect bed… built Just Right to support your body all night long and cozy and intimate all at the same time.
Goldilocks Was Right… so was Saint Valentine!
