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.

Is there really a gene that lets you function on less sleep? If you only got 4 – 6 hours but are still fully productive at your 8am meeting, you may be one of the lucky few. Sleep researchers at the University of California, San Francisco discovered the rare genetic mutation that benefits sleepers who don’t get the recommended 7 – 9 hours of sleep each night. No nodding off the next day, needing a nap, or having to chug a gallon of coffee. While we sleep, our brain is busy housekeeping — clearing out unnecessary synaptic connections and maintaining memories. These individuals’ brains can process the necessary information needed in a shorter period of time. In this sense, they are more “efficient sleepers.”

If you’re not this fortunate, we’ve got you covered with a better night’s sleep. 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.
