Barry Bridges

Writer / Certified Sleep Science Coach
Years of erratic newspaper schedules and switching between day and night shifts helped Barry realize that sleep is more than a function of the human nervous system—it's a precious commodity. He picked up some good habits during lockdown, including meditation apps and cutting back on the afternoon coffee. He's a restless side sleeper with a history of lower back issues and one rather large cat who likes to sprawl at his feet. Barry wants to guide you through your own journey to find the bedding solution that helps you sleep better every night and live better every day. Sleeping Position: Side Hours Logged Each Night: Seven, even on weekends Always Sleeps With:Head on one soft foam pillow and left arm around a firmer down pillow Currently Sleeping On: A medium-firm memory foam mattress
