Welcome to Sleep Smarter, and our weekly Q&A session with myself, Brandon Jackson. I am truly excited to provide you with the best information possible help you reap all of the health benefits that great quality sleep has to offer!
I have worked at Gallery Furniture in Houston, Texas for over 13 years in the bedding department and have dedicated my life to all things sleep related! I am a sleep and mattress expert, and considered “sleep certified” by every major mattress brand. I’ve also sold more than 20,000 mattresses in my career.
In regards to mattress knowledge, I’ve studied under three of the world’s top sleep pathologists and have been to the manufacturing facilities of literally every major mattress manufacturer in America, including Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Stearns and Foster, and many others, as well as a few facilities in 3 other countries. I’ve also recently had the honor of designing a mattress with Dormeo Octaspring.
Beyond bedding, I have read thousands of articles, dozens of books, and spent hundreds of hours with the top sleep pathologists in the world to learn more about sleep as a practice, sleep health, and how sleep affects our bodies and brains.
Here in Houston, TX, St. Luke’s Hospital has certified my program as being the most proficient and most scientific way to diagnose sleeping surfaces for people without being a doctor. Memorial Herman Hospital has also granted me the same certification. Many mattress manufacturers here in the USA such as Tempur-Pedic, Sealy and others consider me an expert in foam, fabrics, steel, engineering, as well as diagnosing sleep issues for people.
I will be answering as many questions as possible about anything sleep-related. Submit your questions through comments or email and I will do my best to give you solid advice. Hopefully, my sleep tips will change the way you think about getting high quality shut-eye!
