The Benefits of Cycling on Sleep Performance

Simmons Mattress Gallery has joined the moustachioed ranks and embraced cycling as an extra-curricular activity. This week we were delighted to learn that our new passion for pedalling can also help us sleep better.

Stanford University School of Medicine researchers found that sufferers of sedentary insomnia fell asleep twice as fast when they included a 20-30 minute cycle in their daily routines.

The research also showed that cyclists were able to increase their time under the sandman’s trance by nearly an hour each night.

Part of the benefit of cycling is increased exposure to sunlight. According to Professor Jim Horne of Loughborough University’s Sleep Centre, sunlight helps maintain our natural circadian rhythms, which regulate our sleep cycles. The exposure also reduces the level of cortisol in our bodies, promoting deep regenerative sleep.

Cyclists are also exposed to less pollution then auto commuters. The common belief is that cyclists spend their time sucking in excess CO2 from vehicle exhaust. It is true that because of cars, bike riders are exposed to harmful emissions, but a study done by the Imperial College of London showed that cyclists take in about 1/5th the levels of pollution inhaled by people in cars.

Less pollution, more exertion, increased exposure to our shiny friend in the sky all adds up to a better, healthier, longer, more restorative sleep.

So for better mattress results, pull your two-wheeler out of the garage and hit the road. Just remember to ring your bell when you pass us on the left.

Kerrisdale Mattress Store

If you think that Kerrisdale does not have the breadth to satisfy all of your shopping needs, you are not alone. There are many fantastic boutique stores, coffee shops and local outfits, but there is one thing missing – a specialized Kerrisdale mattress store.

Sure, you can get a small selection of Simmons Beautyrest mattresses at some of the stores on 41st, but it’s hard to find a specific, exclusively Simmons retailer.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t one nearby. Simmons Mattress Gallery is only 5.6 km down the road. Simply drive down 41st to Oak, hang a left, and keep driving 32 more blocks until you hit Broadway. According to Google Maps it should take you 11 minutes.

At Simmons Mattress Gallery you will find that mattress Vancouver retailers wish they had, but never have – The Triple Edge Beautyrest. Only SMG can carry the Simmons Triple Edge. So be sure to ask for this signature beauty by name.

Another interesting note, if you search for mattress Kerrisdale on Google.ca, you will see that Simmons Mattress Gallery is already at the top. So that has to tell you something.

For the next short while Simmons is having a Close Out Sale. Everything must go. We are offering mattresses for up to 75% off! This offer is not to be missed, because it will (obviously) never happen again.

Pitt Meadows Mattress Store

There is only one Pitt Meadows mattress store that stocks exclusively Simmons mattresses. That store is Coquitlam mattress store, Simmons Mattress Gallery.

Why is it important to stock only the best brand? Simply put, we want to have the deepest selection of only top quality beds. That bed would be the Simmons.

Everyone has their personal preference level for what makes a comfortable night’s sleep. No two people are alike. So instead of being forced into an inferior brand just because you like a model that is not a traditional bestseller – Simmons Mattress Gallery has that model ready for you, in premium brand, no less – the Beautyrest.

If you live in Pitt Meadows and you need a good bed, drop by Simmons Mattress Gallery at 101 Schoolhouse Street, just off the Lougheed Highway, today.

It’s only 22 minutes into Coquitlam. That could be the best 22 minutes that you’ve ever spent in your life.

Maple Ridge Mattress Store

27 minutes. That’s all it takes. If you want to get a top quality mattress you only need to drive to Coquitlam. It’s probably something you do once a week or so anyway.

Sure, there are mattress stores in Maple Ridge, so why would you drive the extra mile? Because we do the same.

At Simmons Mattress Gallery, they have the least pushy salespeople out there.  They are informative, patient and they are there to help you answer your questions. Located at 101 Schoolhouse St, Simmons is not technically a Maple Ridge mattress store, but it is the best!

If the professionalism of the sales staff is not enough to make you go from Maple Ridge to Coquitlam, consider the pricing.

Currently, Simmons Mattress Gallery in Coquitlam is having a Closeout Sale! This could be your last chance to get a Beautyrest with Triple Edge Technology. That’s incredible. They have mattresses bargain priced at up to 75% off. And everything must go.

So if you are looking for a mattress store in Maple Ridge, look a little further, and you’ll find the perfect place for your new bed.

Port Moody Mattress Store

Port Moody isn’t that far from Vancouver, BC. Probably, most people who live in Port Moody commute to work in the city each morning. And return home each afternoon. Port Moody is a beautiful little nook for those who love the city but want more. The lawn. The acreage. The neighbourhood.

Can’t say much about the Port Moody mattress stores though.

Just because you live further from the city, doesn’t mean you need to disadvantage yourself. You can still have the best of both worlds.

Demand more from your Port Moody mattress store, nothing about your existence out here has been a compromise, so why should your mattress, or selection of mattress, or choice of bed?

One of the most important things to remember about Port Moody, BC is that it is actually very close to Vancouver. If you chose to live there, you want the amenities, the shows, the sports and the action – but at an arm’s length. The same can be said for having what is best in the west. There is no need to settle for an inferior mattress and a lesser night’s sleep, when it is possible to pick up a Simmons Beautyrest for up to 60% off on your way back from work.

If you are already in Vancouver five days a week – make the most of it. Go to Simmons Mattress Gallery on 1001 West Broadway and get yourself the finest bed. If you don’t have a truck, or a means to carry it, Simmons can arrange for that as well.

West Vancouver Mattress Store

West Vancouver is known for many things: Yummy mommies, The Housewives of Vancouver, epic backyards and million-dollar views. But it is not really known for its West Vancouver mattress stores.

Sure there are a few to be found hither and yawn, but to find a bed you really want to crash out on, you are going to need that special West Vancouver blend of quality and value. No one understands premium in Vancouver, like the people from West Vancouver.

That’s why the Midsummer Beautyrest Sale at Simmons Mattress Gallery is perfect for the discerning client. Beautyrests are top of the line, and par none when it comes to the best bed on the market. Only a Beautyrest has the patented pocket coils to eliminate motion transfer between partners. So when you sleep soundly, you won’t be woken in the night by someone coming in later, or getting up and down to refill their latte on a Sunday morning.

This is where the West Vancouver mattress stores cannot compete. Only Simmons Mattress Gallery on Broadway and Oak offers Simmons Beautyrests for 60% off. But it is only during the Beautyrest Mattress Sale, so there is a limited window to get a high quality bed at incredible value.

If you live in West Vancouver, simply drive across the bridge and up to Broadway, and the Simmons Mattress Gallery staff will be more than happy to help you get the bed you deserve, at a price you can brag about.

Burnaby Mattress Store

Do you live in Burnaby? Are you satisfied with your Burnaby mattress store? If not, we have a good option for you.

Simmons Mattress Gallery has two mattress stores equidistant from your Burnaby location.

One is at the corner of Broadway and Oak – a mere 23 minute drive from your fine Burnaby central.

1001 West Broadway, Vancouver BC

The other is in Coquitlam, about the same amount of time away.

101 Schoolhouse St., Coquitlam, BC

So, if you look in either direction, you can get a quality Simmons Beautyrest in less than 25 minutes.

Worried about what your Burnaby mattress store is going to think when you skip on over to a Simmons Mattress Gallery? Don’t worry, we won’t tell them.

Whistler Mattress Store

Let’s face it, if you are looking for a Whistler mattress store, you are either going to run up against a super expensive chain, a wildly marked up local version of your favourite Beautyrest. It takes a village to ship in every stick of furniture, and mattresses are no exception. Just like the food prices up north, you pay an exorbitant sum for that convenience.

A better option – pick up your bed the next time you are in Vancouver. You can’t get much more central than Simmons Mattress Gallery’s store on Broadway and Oak. You won’t need to fight downtown traffic, either. Or pay $12/hour to park. In fact, we offer free parking downstairs.

You’re going to be in Vancouver at some point. Say it’s to take a plane somewhere. Perfect. Simmons Mattress Gallery is exactly halfway between Whistler and YVR. We’re right on Oak street.

We don’t recommend picking up your mattress on the way to the airport, but coming back, why not? What better way to get home than on a brand-new bed.

So if your local Whistler mattress store is a bit pricier than you’d like, consider our Truckload Sale with beds up to 60% off.

We’re more than happy to help you outfit your Whistler home, cottage or chalet with the best beds in the west.

Why do they even make Doubles?

King sized beds – once you’ve had one it’s hard to go back to sleeping crushed next to your partner on a queen. Nothing beats being able to sprawl out like a starfish and not even have your toes or fingertips touch the edges. Sure, they take up a lot of space in the bedroom, but that’s what bedrooms are for – beds. And they are nice.

Queens are okay. If you are in a relationship, it’s the bare minimum. If you aren’t, they make for an excellent sprawling single pad.

Singles I can see if you are smaller in stature, or if space is an issue. Really, all a guy or gal needs is a single. It’s not preferable, but it’s the bare minimum, and as the name implies, no one is asking you to share it with anyone.

But doubles? Really? They’re too small to share comfortably and not big enough to enjoy selfishly. So why even make them? If you are travelling and you find yourself on a double with your partner – the first thing you’ll ask is ‘why do they even make these things?’

If you’re thinking double, think twice, what you really want is probably a queen.

And on the topic of queens. Simmons Mattress Gallery is currently selling Beautyrest Queens for $898. That’s almost $2000 off the regular price!

Dare to Dream!

Dreams. They come to us at night while we sleep soundly. They float into our minds while we spend the day doing simple tasks. They infect our soul and force us to face the question: “What if?”

What if we went back to school for three years and improved our education?

What if we took a year off and moved our family to Chile for the experience?

What if we had only one day to live?

What if our family was increased by one?

What if we chased our artistic dream?

But for many, these questions, brought on by dreams, are stifled with the so-called ‘realistic advice’ of friends or family members. This is discouraging.

Dreams come to us because we know there is a better way to live, to enjoy each day, to find employment and to act on our passions. Don’t be discouraged by others. And never settle for average.

John Maxwell, a leadership author, claims, “being exceptional demands extra effort, sustained inspiration and uncommon discipline.” Fulfilling our dreams is never easy. So be prepared to fight for them. Your soul will thank you.

What’s In A Name?

Interested in the historical past of many of Vancouver’s most prominent streets and sites. There is an excellent book out in publication called “Namely Vancouver.” It is written by Tom Snyders, with the help of Jennifer O’Rourke. The book is organized alphabetically and lists almost all of Vancouver’s street names and neighbourhoods. Each entry includes the origin of the name and when possible, a brief history of the site. You can flip through and look up different street names you’ve always wondered about, or look up all the areas you ever lived, or just start on page one and work your way through. Some of the entries are a little dense with their historical references, but the real gems are the stories that Snyder includes.

Here are a few of our favourite finds:

Jericho (Beach) – Named after Jeremiah (Jerry) Rogers, Jericho was once a thriving logging camp. Jerry ran the camp and according to Snyders, treated his employees with dignity and provided fair wages. The camp was given the nickname Jerry’s Cove. It seems that over time, maybe through slurred after work libations, the name morphed into Jericho. Jerry would later become a justice of the peace.

Jericho Beach (Looking Towards Downtown Vancouver)

Wreck (Beach) – This popular nudist spot is named after the man-made breakwater that was built in 1928 using three log barges, a floating grain elevator, four former U.S. World War I freighters and an ore carrier.

Broadway (Home to Simmons Mattress Gallery) – 9th Avenue was changed to Broadway in May of 1909, in hopes that the area would take on a New York Broadway kind of feel. The name change was also instituted to encourage American investment in the area.

“Namely Vancouver” is published by Arsenal Pulp Press

All Wound Up?

Simmons mattresses feature the finest in coil technology. Here are a few of the things that let you sleep better at night.

1. 8″ coils. We use coils that are taller than the pockets themselves. All of the coils are pre-compressed to fit in the patented pockets. This ensures greater comfort, stability and support.

2. NON-FLIP, you never need to flip your mattress again.

3. Tapered shape – for a smaller conformability surface. This is more responsive, and contours better to your body.

4. A broad stability base – to minimize motion transfer.

5. A wider comfort contour, to guarantee the highest degree of cradling.

Find the 8″ Hi-Profile Evolution NON-FLIP Pocket Coil in all Simmons Beautyrest and Backcare mattresses. The 7″ Evolution NON-FLIP Pocket Coil is featured in all BackCare and Dreamscapes mattresses.
