theSkimm makes it easier to be smarter, and Casper makes it easier to get better sleep. So, theSkimm and Casper are partnering to make it easier to be smarter about your sleep.

It’s much more than just a stress hormone released by your body. Cortisol is an important part of your circadian cycle, helping you stay alert during the midday slump and asleep at the end of a long day. Plot twist: coffee actually reduces your cortisol levels. It’s best to go for a Starbucks run between peak times, which are 9am and noon.

But when it’s time to wind down, we’re here to help. The Casper mattress ships straight to your door for free in a “how did they do that?” sized box. You can try it in the comfort of your own home for 100 nights, hassle-free.  If you don’t absolutely love it (we think you will), we’ll pick it up and give a refund. No springs attached. Just foam.
