The most basic shift we can make in redefining success in our lives has to do with our strained relationship with sleep.

As Dr. Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer of the Cleveland Clinic, put it, "Sleep is the most underrated health habit." Most of us fail to make good use of such an invaluable part of our lives. In fact, we deliberately do just the opposite.

We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in. Sleep, or how little of it we need, has become a symbol of our prowess. We make a fetish of not getting enough sleep, and we boast about how little sleep we get. I once had dinner with a man who bragged to me that he'd gotten only four hours of sleep the night before. (I resisted the temptation to tell him that the dinner would have been a lot more interesting if he had gotten five.) -- Arianna Huffington

Create an Environment That Promotes Good Sleeping

The chances are that you won't get the sleep you need, unless you create an environment that promotes good sleeping. Modern advances in sleep research using infrared and magnetic technology have made possible the creation of the optimal sleep environment.

Stress and discomfort can be relieved by massage. The Kenko Naturest Mattress Topper features massage nodules that are enhanced, using a proprietary process, with a layer of applied latex that imparts a gradient density -- firmness and the right amount of yielding "give." This engineering breakthrough provides a gently stimulating feeling that makes the body more receptive to relaxation. It affords the sensation of massage and helps ease tension. You not only fall asleep more easily, you also wake up feeling refreshed.
