Summer is great for a lot of things, sweltering in the heat isn’t one of them. That’s why we rounded up some great ways to sleep cool for the summer!
We’re very excited about our recent partnership with Darkhorse Benefits, an organization that focuses on helping veterans and active duty special operations warriors get assistance and support in their search for a meaningful post-service career.
On May 4th, 2016, Darkhorse and Sleepy’s hosted a Veteran Career Fair and Workshop at our headquarters located in Hicksville, NY. This exclusive event provided key tips, tactics and strategies on applying military skills in business, interviewing skills, resume building, networking, and social media. “Not a lot of companies help military veterans look and apply for jobs. Darkhorse is a free program that provides useful information and opportunities to find jobs at companies like yours. This kind of opportunity is really great for us.” said a veteran attendee.
Those interested in career opportunities in Information Technology, Operations, Customer Care, Sales, etc. also had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with some of our hiring managers who were ready to interview all veterans seeking employment in these fields.
Calling all neighbors – Sleepy’s and Covenant House New York would like your help! Please stop by your local Sleepy’s Showroom today (participating Manhattan and Bronx locations) and help our community and underprivileged youth by donating toiletry items in need.
Covenant House New York began more than 40 years ago when six young runaways were given shelter from a snowstorm, in the lower east side of Manhattan. Today there are 21 Covenant House locations across the United States, Canada and Latin America – and together we serve more than 50,000 homeless young people each year. In New York alone we serve close to 4,000 young people each year. Our goal is simple, yet challenging: help each young person we meet move to safe, stable, and loving places in their lives.
Oh hi there! We’ve been looking for you.

What exactly does this mean?
With warmer temps heating up travel plans for spring break, it’s time to think about where you’re going, and more importantly, how much sleep you’ll get along the way. When it comes to sleeping on airplanes, a lot can disturb your aerial slumber. Service carts, turbulence, not enough leg room…the list goes on. If you’re a traveler who has difficulty sleeping on planes, you’re not alone. Luckily, we’ve compiled the best shut-eye tips to help you sleep soundly from take-off to touch down.
Claim the best seat in the house.
Whether you’re on a short flight from New York to Boston or a long-haul flight from LA to Sydney, your seat choice impacts your sky-high Z’s. To make the most of your flight, choose a window seat. Not only will you be undisturbed by fellow passengers, you’ll also be able to comfortably lean your pillow against the window. Relax, recline and rest up!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and let’s face it… chocolate and roses are a little overrated. But, don’t worry, we’ve found the perfect Valentine’s Day presents for you and your loved one.
Tossing & turning at night, and feeling super tired in the morning? Do you feel like you’re getting a good night’s sleep, but your body is achy and sore when you wake up? These could be signs that you don’t have the right pillow for your perfect night’s rest.
The right pillow can really make all the difference between an energized morning and a difficult start to your day. So, lets get to it, shall we? Here are some of our favorite pillows that you need to check out:
We all know that you should never eat a big meal right before bedtime. Feeling too stuffed will make it difficult to fall asleep, and most likely keep us up at night. But a little healthy bedtime snack won’t hurt! Popcorn can be considered the king of all snack foods, it’s healthy and delicious! One cup of air popped popcorn is only 30 calories, what other snack can beat that?
But seriously, popcorn has some amazing benefits and can also help you sleep better.
Party hat on, bubbly beverage in hand, counting down the seconds to a clean slate; New Year’s Eve is one of those nights where you feel like you can reach out and touch the moon. Everything is within reach and anything is possible. The heat of resolution is distinctly in the air (especially at the gym in January)…until it’s not. Why do we commit to goals only to break them days or weeks later? It seems like a crummy way to embark on a new year, so we committed to finding out ways to help stick to those resolutions.
As Jon Snow said in last season’s Game of Thrones, “winter is coming.” And now, mid-January, it’s here. To escape freezing temperatures and chilling wind gusts, we created a few helpful suggestions on how to stay warm.
Hint: they all include your bed!
