Sleeping Better, Longer and Deeper with TEMPUR® [AD]
I’ve not always had the greatest relationship with sleep. Being a shift worker for over ten years my sleep pattern has always been erratic. In 2015, when I became a parent, I forgot what a decent nights sleep truly felt like. More recently, when COVID 19 hit, my anxiety levels increased so dramatically, that sleep was sometimes a thing of the past.
As a result, I’ve suffered with memory issues, as well as changes in my mood and general performance.
But we’ve had enough. To put it simply; I’m tired. So we’ve decided to invest in our sleep environment. As well as taking steps to make sure we’re able to wind down at the end of the day, things like our pillows have recently had an massive upgrade thanks to the folks at TEMPUR® who recently got in touch.
A league of its own
For decades, TEMPUR® has been in a league of its own when it comes to a comfortable nights sleep – from their award-winning mattresses and pillows to their sofa beds and bed-time accessories. The secret behind how TEMPUR® material works is complex (NASA complex!), but what it does is simple; it helps you sleep better, longer, and deeper.
The first of its kind memory foam material used by TEMPUR® aims to offer you a comfortable night’s sleep by prioritising weight and pressure; making sure it is evenly distributed around the body. It’s proven that pressure relief gives your body total comfort and support, which in-turn leads to a reduction in night time tossing and turning – something I’ve been guilty of in the past – as well as morning aches and pains!
Sleeping position matters. Poor quality sleep is proven to negatively affect overall health. Which is why proper body positioning, or ‘Sleep Ergonomics’ that support your back and neck alignment is so important.
Your mattress and pillow should allow your body to rest in a physiologically natural position, and recover from the strain it has accumulated during the day. Your pillow and mattress, therefore, should adequately support the natural curves and shape of the spine so that the muscles can relax.
A Feeling Like No Other
In comparison to spring mattresses and ordinary memory foam mattresses, TEMPUR® boasts the following features:
- Motion Absorption. With 3% motion transfer, you are much less likely to be disturbed by your partner!
- Pressure relief. TEMPUR® Material precisely adapts to your body with proven pressure relief from sensitive areas like shoulder, back, hips and joints.
- 10-year Quality Guarantee. Covering you against any fault in materials. For example, sagging and more. For pillows, they offer a 3-year Quality Guarantee!
Unlike other retailers, you can also decide what pillow is best for you by browsing the feel of the pillow, as well as pillows based on your sleep position. In addition to their Classic pillows, you also have the option to choose from Ergonomic pillows and Shaped pillows! You can find out more about their Pillow range here.
We tested out a TEMPUR® Comfort Cloud Pillow, which features the following:
- Textured cover.
- 60 degree washable cover.
- Soft feel.
- Made to fit standard pillow cases.
- Offers both comfort and support.
For me, when I get into bed, I want to feel instantly relaxed. I want to have a deep and restful nights sleep, and I want to wake up feeling refreshed. During the pandemic this didn’t feel like an option. Not only would I wake in the night or regularly toss and turn (which would wake Sharon too!) but I would wake up with aches and pains in my back. Because of this, bed time was not often something I would look forward to.
Just by replacing our pillows though, TEMPUR® has now made bed times a joy. I wake feeling refreshed and without any aches. With both sides offering a different textured feel, it means that if I wake in the night I’m able to reset and get back into a deep sleep with ease.
Your body doesn’t just shut down when you sleep. It regenerates and repairs, which means it’s vital that you can have the best possible sleep you can – no matter how short it is!
