One Third of Your Life

Do you realize you spend one third of your life sleeping? Well, I guess some of us a little more and some of us a little less, but it makes sense that no matter how much sleep you get, you want it to be quality sleep. Have you ever slept on sheets that were scratchy? That is the ultimate in a bad night's sleep! Most sheet sets are made in what is called thread-count, which is actually a scientific measurement of how many threads are used in a square inch of the fabric. So those scratchy sheets, likely muslin, may have been 150 thread-count (or 75 threads one direction, woven with 75 threads the other direction). The higher the thread-count, the softer the sheet, because the threads are more tightly woven together. Most sheets you get at a typical department store are 200 thread-count. But remember, you spend one third of your life sleeping, so don't cheat yourself of a good night's sleep.
Using 400 thread-count luxury comforter sheets is one easy way you can improve your quality of sleep. When the sheets are soft, it feels so good to sink into them at the end of a long, tough day. Luxury comforter sheets can help you relax faster, sleep more soundly, and they will actually last longer than traditional sheets.
After staying at a five star hotel in Las Vegas and experiencing much better sleep on luxury comforter sheets, I had to buy some for my own bed. I love the softness of the fabric and I sleep better. I spent just a bit more for the better sheets, but I deserve it. After all, I spend one third of my life there!

  1. I couldn't agree with you more. I never knew great sleep until I slept on awesomely soft sheets. Now I won't buy sheets without checking the thread count. :)
