If You Want to Change the World, Start Off By Making Your Bed

During a recent trip, I noticed in an Airport bookstore, a small book titled “MAKE YOUR BED: Little Things that Can Change Your Life and Maybe the World”.

This New York Times bestseller by Admiral William H. McRaven is truly a gem and very inspirational!

McRaven wrote this book after his commencement address to the graduating class at the University of Texas at Austin. His address focused on 10 lessons he learned from his Navy SEAL training.

Making your bed every morning, explains McRaven, is a way to start the day off right – with a task completed. Nothing can replace the strength and comfort of one’s faith, but sometimes the simple act of making your bed can give you the lift you need to start your day and provide you the satisfaction to end it right.

Simply Stated – “If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.”

This week, I’m back to work, spending time with some of my favorite people the folks who can literally “make your bed“.

Foamite has worked tirelessly for decades to help people understand the importance of buying the right foam in your mattress to help improve the quality of your sleep.

In a couple of weeks we will be going to Cologne, Germany to the bi-yearly Interzum Trade Show. There we will discover the latest and best comfort ingredients from all over the world and bring them to Canada.

So, when you make your bed tomorrow morning, give some thought to whether it might be time to replace your mattress. If it’s more than 10 years old, and if it’s not made with high resiliency foam (Koosh Natural), the mattress is probably no longer giving your body adequate comfort and support for a healthy, restorative night’s sleep. Even more importantly, a decade-old mattress may not contain natural and certified pure eco-friendly foam.

When it’s time to go mattress shopping, consider Foamite. We can “MAKE YOUR BED” with your input and guidance and offer you useful tips on how to find a mattress that’s just right for your weight, preference and back condition.
