BedTimes: Tell us about your bedtime routine. 

Rachel Gomez: As a nearly 40-year-old woman with little children, my routine consists of a hot shower to wash off the stress of a full workload and I do my best to wash off my makeup.

BT: What do you avoid before bed? 

RG: I try my hardest to stay off of my laptop and work before bed. Sometimes I am successful, but most of the time I am trying to finish up my day of emails and tasks. I know how important it is to stay off technology one hour before bed, but let’s face it. That’s something I probably won’t be able to do until I retire, haha. 

BT: How many hours of sleep do you typically get?

RG: I really strive to get around seven to eight hours a night. 

BT: Pets in the bed – yay or nay? 

RG: Nay. Hard no. I am already a light sleeper. The last thing I need is a pet moving around and waking me up. 

BT: Barefoot or socks? 

RG: Team barefoot.

BT: What’s on your nightstand? 

RG: I typically have a water bottle and noise machine on my nightstand. I have recently decided that having my phone and its charger close to my head is not an ideal situation, so I now have it charging in my bathroom. 

BT: Are you a napper?

RG: I wish. I used to be when I was younger. Now, if I take a nap, I won’t be able to sleep well at night. 

BT: What are your best sleep tips? 

RG: Hot showers help me relax and unwind at night. Outside of that, I am not an ideal person to offer sleep tips as I was an insomniac for half my life. 

BT: What are your secrets for getting a good night’s sleep while traveling?

RG: Work really hard that day, haha.

BT: Is there anything else you would like to add?

RG: Before joining DreamFit, I didn’t realize the importance of quality bedding and how it truly impacts the quality of sleep. I thought it was a marketing ploy all these years until I was able to have the privilege of sleeping on DreamFit sheets and mattress protectors and realized they are a game changer.
