Based in Deerfield Beach, Florida, GBS Enterprises is a leader in the furniture and bedding industries. What first began as a producer of specialty sheets for the trucking industry has grown into a company that focuses on providing a wide range of high-quality sleep products. GBS Enterprises is also known for its Healthy Sleep Cool-Tech and Ultra-Tech lines, featuring products that help consumers get a restful night’s sleep.

Using the right pillows and mattresses can spell the difference between good and poor sleep. However, according to a new study, better quality sleep can also be achieved by minimizing the amount of stress brought about by time spent in the workplace.

After interviewing approximately 700 US Forest Service workers, researchers found that those who experience more difficulties in the workplace have a higher risk of insomnia. On the other hand, employees who make it a point to unwind after work tend to sleep easier at night.

These after-work activities range from simply taking a walk outside to listening to music. The study, however, does not recommend drinking alcohol before going to bed, as doing so is known to disrupt sleep.
