FOR SLEEP NUMBER® BED OWNERS


You don’t have to have a Sleep Number® bed with SleepIQ® technology to participate in the Sleep30® Challenge by Sleep Number. However, if you do, you can easily track your sleep using your bed’s technology.

IF YOU HAVE A SLEEP NUMBER® BED WITH SLEEPIQ® TECHNOLOGY

 

Sleep Number® research shows that people sleep better with SleepIQ® technology. (March 2015 Sleep Number® study of 88 sleepers and 10,206 sleep sessions as measured by an increase in SleepIQ® score and average restful time in bed.)

 

Think of it as a sleep coach. The more you tell SleepIQ® technology, the smarter it gets and the better it can help you improve your sleep. Start by tracking your daily activities in the SleepIQ® app and soon you’ll see how your habits and behaviors — and even your Sleep Number® setting — impact your sleep. Then you can use that information to make adjustments to help you sleep even better.

 

Here are some ideas to try during the Sleep30® Challenge:

 

REVIEW YOUR SLEEP PROFILE

Sometimes after people set up SleepIQ® technology they don’t go back and look at it again. Did you know you can update your Sleeper Profile at any time? Your SleepIQ® score is personalized to you and partially depends on the nightly sleep goal you set for yourself. Take time to evaluate whether your current settings align with your actual sleep behaviors. You can tailor your profile to reflect your new Sleep30® schedule goals. If you’ve already created a Routine, go back and review your bedtime, sleep goal and wake-up time, and adjust as needed.

 

USE SLEEPIQ® TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT YOUR SLEEP SCHEDULE & BEDTIME ROUTINE

The SleepIQ® app can send you a push notification before bedtime every day for the next 30 days. This is a custom message just for you, set for a time you choose. If you want help with your bedtime ritual, then write a message that includes one of the tips from that section of the Sleep30® Challenge. You might tell yourself to take a warm shower or write a to-do list for the next day. Or, if you’re someone else’s Sleep Champion, you can remind yourself to text them to start closing the book on the day.

 

USE SLEEPIQ® ACTIVITIES WITH THE SLEEP SLEEP30® CHALLENGE

You can record your daily activities in the SleepIQ® app two hours after you get out of bed. We recommend doing this over your lunch break. Each day, enter your diet or exercise from the previous day and then watch patterns emerge, showing you how those activities impact your SleepIQ® score. Name each activity in a similar way so SleepIQ® technology can aggregate data and better connect trends. We suggest simple words and phrases like “exercised” or “alcohol” or “caffeine after noon.”

 

Example:  If you’re tracking caffeine intake you can see the days where caffeine after noon may have had an impact on the quality of your sleep. Are you getting more red bars as a result of late-day caffeine consumption? Are you disturbing your sleep partner more?

 

USE SLEEPIQ® TECHNOLOGY AS A COACH OR GUIDE

One of the great things about SleepIQ® technology is that you can compare your sleep habits and SleepIQ® score with people your age or in your geographic area.

 

Some SleepIQ® users look at this information just to know they’re not alone in whatever it is they’re struggling with. Others find ideas for how to tweak their sleep schedule or diet or exercise programs to help improve their sleep.

 

 

IF YOU HAVE A SLEEP NUMBER® BED WITHOUT SLEEPIQ® TECHNOLOGY

 

SleepIQ® technology proves that people adjusting their Sleep Number® setting are more likely to have improved sleep quality. (September 2015 Sleep Number study of 1,000 SleepIQ® users as measured by an increase in average restful time in bed.)

 

Try adjusting your Sleep Number® setting and see if it impacts your sleep. We recommend keeping your bed at the same Sleep Number® setting for 3–5 days before adjusting again for best results. Keep a journal of how you slept at each Sleep Number® setting to find which one is best for you.

 

Nine out of ten couples disagree on mattress firmness.** That’s why the Sleep Number® bed is the best bed for couples — you can each sleep at the level of comfort and support that’s best for you — your Sleep Number® setting — with no need to compromise.
