I want to talk about one of my favorite things in life. Something absolutely amazing, that I certainly haven't gotten enough of since becoming a mother 15 years ago. What am I talking about here? SLEEP! I'm sure all you parents can relate to lack of sleep, right? I joke and say that I haven't gotten a decent night's sleep in more than a decade. It may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I definitely don't get as much rest as I'd like. In my house, nap seems to be a 4-letter word.
Anyway, getting enough rest is super important. Not only is sleep required to be an alert and productive member of society, it's also essential for overall wellness. As we head into cold and flu season, getting enough sleep is absolutely imperative. After all, sleep does help support a healthy immune system!
There are plenty of ways to help make sure you're getting enough sleep. Things like limiting caffeine in the evenings, reading a book, or even meditation can help you to relax and fall asleep more quickly.
Another thing that can greatly improve your quality of sleep is choosing the right pillow. There's nothing worse when you wake up in the middle of the night to beat, flip, punch, or shift your pillow because it's simply not providing the right level of support. This disrupts sleep, and can leave you feeling groggy in the morning. No one likes that! The right pillow can truly make a world of difference.
You should always choose the best pillow for your sleep style. Are you a back sleeper? Maybe you're a tummy sleeper like my Xander.....Or maybe, you're like me, and you get your best sleep on your side. I am weird. I sleep on my side, but I also have to have a pillow between my knees. This is non-negotiable. Take away my "leg pillow", and I can't sleep comfortably at all!
No matter what your sleep style is, the folks at Tempur-Pedic have you covered. They offer a nice range of pillows sure to give you the best night's sleep possible.
I'm sure you're familiar with the brand, right? They make those luxurious, memory foam mattresses that are supposed to be the closest thing to sleeping on a cloud there is. I haven't slept on their mattresses, but I am happy to say, I recently received one of their Queen sized TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side Pillows to check out for myself!
This pillow is absolutely fantastic. So wonderful, in fact, that I am not allowed to use it. Not even kidding. I'm crying into my coffee cup as I write this. The things a mother does for her children. I deserve a gold medal for giving this pillow up. Sigh. The kiddos come first, right?
Anyway....Before I sing the praises of this pillow, let me give you all the technical specs about the TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side Pillow:
Targeted Support. The unique ergonomic shape with first-ever dual-feel design uses supportive TEMPUR material throughout that targets your head and neck, combined with a softer TEMPUR material inlay for added comfort where your head and neck rests.
Feel: firm support at edge and softer center
Use: Side sleep
Okay, now that you know all about the great features of the TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side pillow, it's time to talk about comfort. Supreme, total, and complete comfort.
I got to sleep on this pillow for a whole week before my 5 year old claimed it as her own. See, Sophie is a side-sleeper as well, and her $15 pillow just wasn't cutting it. I can't say I blame her for wanting the "special pillow".
My experience with this pillow was amazing. It provides wonderful support to the head, neck, and shoulders. This pillow is quite firm, which I like. Since this is memory foam at its finest, this pillow conforms to your body, making it the coziest place to rest your head in the history of the world. Okay, maybe Bruno Mars' chest is better, but I don't have access to that!
I was able to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep longer using this pillow. In addition, I woke up feeling rested, alert, and free of those annoying aches and pains that come with being an adult.
I should also point out that this pillow includes a soft, removable knit cover that is completely washable. You know, just in case you forget to remove your make-up one night and end up with a multi-colored pillow in the morning!
As I said, I didn't get to keep this pillow for very long at all before Sophie claimed it as her own. I made the mistake of letting her use it while we snuggled up to watch MARVEL'S The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
During the whole movie, she couldn't stop gushing about how comfortable this pillow is, and how she wished SHE could have such a special pillow to sleep on every night. And she gave me puppy-eyes and a little pout.
Who could say no to that?!
Sophie is really enjoying the pillow of my dreams. She also falls asleep sooner and wakes up ready to start her day.
This pillow rocks. I miss it terribly. That's okay, though. I know what I will be buying myself for the Holidays!
If you sleep on your side and struggle to get comfortable every night, definitely check out the TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side Pillow. This is a game changer, folks. Try it. I am pretty sure you'll fall in love with it, too! Just don't make the same mistake I did. Hide this one from your kiddos! Or, maybe you might want to pick up one for every member of the family!
