When we think of the bedroom, we don’t always think of technology. In fact, according to much lauded sleep science we should be avoiding tech when we’re trying to get to sleep.
However, it doesn’t mean we need a blanket ban on all things gadget in the bedroom - there are some excellent items that are ideal for your place of relaxation and can truly help you and your partner enjoy a better night’s rest, together.
One such item is the new fashion for adjustable bases for beds - most notable among these is the Leesa Sleep base and mattress combo.
The Leesa mattresses is totally adjustable for quality sleep and relaxation (yes, this means you can be on a different level than your partner!). It’s a pretty awesome concept and one that could really help any of us sharing a bed to a better night’s rest.
Worried about the spur of a motor? Well,the base is thoughtfully designed for ease of use, the Adjustable Base includes a wireless remote and quiet motor which allow for seamless nightly transitions, especially for those sleeping with partners. The Adjustable Base allows partners to sleep in completely different elevated positions from one another, so neither sleeper is compromising their comfort.

Additionally, it provides a wireless remote for easy of adjustment, an underbed light and has a lift capacity of 850 lbs and is covered by a 25 year warranty - see more at leesa.com
When this is all teamed up with the amazingly comfortable Leesa mattress it provides an excellent night’s rest. The mattresses provide a mix of performance foam layers to cool and also relieve pressure. It’s a well made and effective design that works so well with this new adjustable base it’s teamed up with. And it’s also worth noting that Leesa has a social impact program where they donate one mattress for every ten sold. The mattresses are available in the United States, Canada, U.K. and Germany. The Sapira mattress and base by Leesa is only available in the US and Canada currently.
Tips For Staying Comfortable When Sleeping With A Partner
Sleeping next to another person presents unique challenges when it comes to staying comfortable. Good communication is one of the keys to getting a good night's sleep. Work together with your partner to come up with sleeping solutions that work for both of you. Here are some of the primary factors that you should address:
Some people can only sleep in a room that is entirely dark. Others prefer to stay up late watching TV or reading books. If you and your partner fall into opposite camps, there are some simple solutions that you can try. One option is to use a sleep mask. These masks do a wonderful job of blocking out the light, making it easy to sleep even if there are lights on in the room.
Personally, I sleep best when it is quiet outside. Given the fact that I live in Brooklyn, however, peace and quiet is something that is hard to find - particularly when construction is going on nearby. If you are in a similar situation, you can block out some of the unwanted noise by using a fan next to your bed. The sound generated by the fan will help mute extra noise. Another option is to purchase a white noise machine. If you prefer, you can even listen to soft music or leave the TV on at night. Another option that you may want to consider is wearing noise-canceling headphones to bed or using earplugs to block out any sounds that you don't want to hear.
Partners often struggle to find a temperature that they both like for sleeping. Some people prefer extremely cool rooms for sleeping while other people prefer things a little bit warmer. Look for solutions that you both can live with. For instance, if your partner wants to leave the air conditioner on all night, you may be able to stay warm by wearing thicker pajamas or using an extra blanket.
When choosing pajamas, opt for comfort whenever possible. If you wear something to bed that is uncomfortable or binding, it will make it extremely difficult to sleep. That doesn't mean that you have to look slouchy or unattractive. There are plenty of fitted pajamas or slinky nightgowns out there that are comfortable to sleep in. If you are staying over at your significant other's house, don't forget to pack along your own pajamas. That way, you can stay comfortable while you sleep.
