Author imageThe Mattress Warehouse

Even though you weren’t watching the fireworks that normally usher in the new year with friends and family, it is still a new year. And although it is a strange start to the year 2021, some new year’s things don’t change. Like that resolution to live healthier – more exercise, better food, more sleep. So if healthy living is one of your resolutions, getting one of the magnificent Kooi Beds is a must.

In America, 5 out of the top 10 new year’s resolutions for 2020 revolved around healthy living. And in South Africa, business owners are encouraged to add healthy living to their list of new year’s resolutions if they want to see their businesses grow.

That just goes to show that, if you want to focus on your health this year, you are in good company.

But how do you go about it? How do you go from being an unhappy-with-yourself coach potato to living and looking healthy?

One step at a time.

Often times, we promise ourselves too much. Or we push ourselves too far. And then we give up too soon. So, instead of making promises that you can’t keep in 2021, let our healthy living experts at The Mattress Warehouse guide you on your journey to leading a happy and healthy life.

Healthy living starts with quality sleep

Babies that do not sleep tend to be unhappy. Moreover, their parents also become grumpy. On the other hand, if the baby sleeps well, the parents are better rested and do well at life.

Why are we telling you this?

Simply to prove that getting enough sleep is essential! It is like that from birth. Think about it. If babies have to sleep to be healthy, wouldn’t it make sense that adults also need sleep to be healthy?

Furthermore, if you want to start out a new exercise program in 2021, you’ll need to sleep on it.


It has been clinically proven that sleep increases workout capacity in adults and reduces the risk of injury.

So if you want to keep up that exercise regime, you better sleep well!

And when it’s time to combine exercise and sleep, we have the perfect solution.

For all of us sleep is really important.

What makes Kooi such great beds?

  • They are made from pure foam, which does not contain calcium fillers that are known to decay over time.
  • Every single Kooi mattress undergoes rigorous stress testing before it is compressed and packed for shipping.
  • The mattresses do not transfer any weight. In other words, you won’t notice a thing if your partner tosses and turns at night.
  • All Kooi Beds adhere to European Standards.

New Year’s Resolutions: Make them and keep them

Make your new year’s resolutions simple

The key to sticking to your new year’s resolutions is to set realistic goals. Don’t expect to be able to maintain massive lifestyle changes.

Use these three steps to guide you:

  • Set small targets
  • Keep track of your progress
  • Reward yourself for completing tasks

Setting small targets makes it much easier to maintain your momentum when taking on a new challenge. Instead of going from no exercise to spending an hour at the gym, start off with a 5 minute stretch routine every day and work yourself up from there.

It’s easier to skip an hour long gym session by using the “not enough time” card than to skip a 5 minute session.

Likewise, keeping track of your progress is quite helpful. It gives you visual confirmation that you are doing what you promised yourself you would do. And that is important! Not only does it build self confidence, but it makes you feel good about yourself.

Furthermore, if you use exercise tracking apps like Strava, you can get encouragement from other people as well. Which really helps.

And just to maintain that progress, treat yourself! After completing your goals six days in a row, take a rest day and have a McFlurry.
