The Team & Sleep Experts at SleepMoment

About Us

For too many adults, getting seven hours of sleep each night, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s minimum recommendation, is a lofty goal and an elusive pursuit. At SleepMoment, we understand that restorative sleep isn’t a luxury—it’s as essential to survival as food and water.

The duration and quality of sleep you get each night can affect almost every aspect of your life, including your physical health, mental health, work productivity, social behaviors, and everything in between. But what power do you have over your sleep? More than you’d think


Our Mission

Our mission at SleepMoment is to educate and empower readers to take control of their sleep health through well-informed purchases and behavioral changes rooted in science.

We believe that having the right sleep set up—in combination with establishing healthy habits—is the key to getting higher quality sleep and more of it. That’s why we offer honest, unbiased reviews of mattress brands, sellers, and specific products.

Moreover, the SleepMoment team understands that what’s healthy or right for one person may not be suitable for others. We don’t give universal advice or make one-size-fits-all mattress recommendations. Rather, we help readers identify their unique needs and preferences and choose a mattress based on these factors.
