Exciting Bedding and a Comforterable Mattress Add Up to a Better

TwinXL.com Offers College Bedding That Students Get Excited About.

July 30, 2012 - Study shows clean and comfortable sheets can improve college students GPA performance by improving sleep. Online retailer TwinXL.com, specializes in twin XL college beds, and offers students the best chance to improve sleep quality with broad selection guaranteed to last until graduation.

A University of Minnesota study published in an issue of Sentience, the U of M undergraduate journal of psychology says quantity of sleep is “significantly” correlated to a student’s grade-point average. The U of M researchers defined sleep deprivation as “functioning with less than five hours of sleep from the previous night.” Researchers  found a negative impact on GPA among students who slept for five hours or less a number of nights during the week.
In an Interview for Harvard Medical School’s “Get Sleep” website, renowned sleep researcher Robert Stickgold  noted that learning involves acquiring, processing and recalling information. He said that lack of sleep affects all three, but particularly harms consolidation, the phase during which the brain connects new information to old and retains understanding.

Stickgold said that following up a learning experience, such as a lecture, with a night of no sleep virtually erases processing of new information — sort of a delayed “in one ear and out the other” response.

Some universities are trying to lessen the problem by educating students about the benefits of good sleep habits, which are sometimes referred to as “sleep hygiene.”

Last school year Brown University and the University of Arizona launched an on-campus media campaign to educate students about why and how to improve sleep. Survey results indicate nearly 10 percent of students polled said the media campaign successfully helped them learn how to sleep better. Tips included in the campaign and echoed by other schools and sleep experts, include:

According to sleep psychologist Dr. Michael Breus, PhD, having a comfortable mattress, sheets and other bedding can also help ensure a good night’s sleep. Dr. Breus says that a “welcoming bed” can improve the quality of sleep. Referring to a “Bedroom Poll” survey by the National Sleep Foundation, he states that clean sheets caused 78 percent of the adult respondents (ages 25 to 55) in the NSF survey to feel “excited” about bedtime. Breus suggests investing in extra sets of sheets and washing them often.

Sending a student a new set of twin extra-long sheets, already laundered and smelling fragrant, is a gentle, diplomatic way for parents to encourage more sleep.

One popular online retailer of college dorm bed sheets, TwinXL.com, is making it easier for students to get excited about bedtime. TwinXL.com is the only retailer specializing in just twin XL size college dorm beds. "We have the largest selection and better products than our competition" says TwinXL.com. "We make shopping for twin XL college beds affordable while offering lots of options so that each student can customize to their tastes." 

"Not only is our bedding more comfortable, it is also guaranteed until your graduate." he said. To enjoy the benefit of better sleep hygiene and improve he recommends a fitted Twin XL 
Mattress Pad to help make a thing dorm mattress more cozy, and their Egyptian cotton sheets to snuggle up in. Students can place orders by visiting their website at www.TwinXL.com.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
