Entering "Back to School" season, it's easy to focus on shopping for the obvious, tangible supplies like pencils, paper, books, and computers. But as you set your student up for success, we'd urge you not to forget about sleep.
If you’re interested in sleep, you’ve likely heard about Arianna Huffington’s new book, the Sleep Revolution – but you may not be aware that there is also an ongoing series of #SleepRevolution events happening at colleges throughout the U.S. Thanks to the efforts of Arianna Huffington and her tireless team, students across the country are waking up to the fact that the common saying "sleep; social life; grades: choose two" is decidedly unhealthy and unhelpful, and they're learning both why they should want to change, and how.
The outstanding quality of Marpac white noise machines is no accident. We don't often toot our own horns - (it's just not very becoming, and we ARE Southerners, after all...) - but we believe that it's important to share what makes our sound machines so special, because it says a lot about what you can expect from our products and our company when you honor us with your purchase.
At Marpac, we’re all about love. We want to help you love how you sleep, love how you feel, and love how you live. We love that our customers love us. We especially love the reviews that say things like “Love, love, love!” (yes, really). We love our jobs. We even love each other. It’s a little bit disgusting, honestly. But hey, when you’re working with good people who get enough sleep, it’s easy to love them!
We like to say that “our customers say it best.” What we mean by this: our marketing department is pretty lazy, and they just put user reviews all over the place instead of coming up with new things to say. (Kidding, of course...J) Here’s what we REALLY mean by this: we have some incredibly passionate customers, and the things they say about our products are so authentically, genuinely complimentary that we feel it’s best to just let their reviews speak for themselves.
White noise is not just the sound of static on a TV, or a euphemism for something that bores you to the point of zoning out. White noise has a purpose in life – and probably even in YOUR life! In fact, it could be the answer to problems you haven't even articulated.
At Marpac, we like to say that our customers say it best… and often, they say it funniest, too. Take, for example, the following pretty hilarious Dohm reviews highlighting the daily annoyance of living with noisy neighbors:
It’s commonly accepted that diet and exercise are crucial components of a healthy lifestyle. While we may each have different ideas about what a “healthy” diet consists of, exactly, or just how rigorous our exercise routine should be, we generally understand that our bodies benefit from proper nutrition and physical activity.
As an employee of Marpac, there are two common questions I hear when people find out I work for a company that produces sound machines: what exactly is a sound machine? And, why do people use them? (Sometimes…Oh, you mean that rain falling sound?)
