Des Plaines, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2011
In his best-selling book "Power Sleep: The Revolutionary Program that Prepares Your Mind For Peak Performance," and the sequel "Sleep for Success! Everything You Must Know About Sleep But Are Too Tired to Ask," sleep researcher Dr. James B. Maas discusses the importance of a nightly pre-sleep ritual, explaining:
"In order to sleep soundly through the night, your body needs to prepare itself for the long period of inactivity ahead. It needs a buffer between the day's stress and the night's rest. You need to find peace and calm in the hour before bed. Slipping between the sheets and closing your eyes should be the very last part of the pre-sleep ritual."
Today, Dr. Maas has teamed with bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down to introduce the first support pillow built specifically for the pre-sleep ritual, providing superior comfort while resting, watching T.V., or doing homework: The Stress EaseÃ¢“¢ Comfort ReaderÃ¢“¢ Pillow, part of the Sleep for Success!Ã¢“¢ by Dr. James B. Maas multi-functional comfort and support pillow collection.
The Stress Ease Comfort Reader pillow is constructed with an independent lumbar compartment providing support for your lower back while you rest. To further promote relaxation and stress relief, the removable cover features a pocket to hold a Stress EaseÃ¢“¢ hot/cold therapy pack in place, offering soothing hot or cold therapy for relief from minor aches and pains.
"Research tells us that the key to a good night's sleep and better tomorrow is to reduce stress and relax before bedtime, and the Stress Ease Comfort Reader pillow is the perfect way to help prepare for the onset of sleep," explains Dr. Maas. "The specific construction of the pillow "“ built to align the spine and back while resting "“ and the hot/cold pack are designed to relieve aches and pains and promote rest, whether preparing for sleep or just taking a break from the stresses of the day."
