One of my photographer friends once told me… “Sleep is the best makeup you can ever have!” And I’ve never heard anything more Real!
A good night’s sleep has several benefits… for both, the body and the mind! Good sleep can help you with everything… From losing weight to glowing skin! From reducing stress and increasing memory, to being more efficient at work and more jovial at home… sleeping right and sleeping enough, can change your life… And that’s something I’ve realized in this last one month!
How? – You may ask? Well… there’s one small thing that happened about a month ago… I ordered this Sleepyhead memory foam mattress and two micro fiber pillows!
To be honest, I have never really had too much trouble falling asleep (touchwood)! However, over the last 4-5 months… I’ve been waking up with a lot of body aches…! I’ve always attributed it to bad sleeping posture… and been cursing my ex-pillow!
I first got a sleepyhead single bed mattress from Amazon.in, for the 2nd bedroom, and not really for my bed. But when I started sleeping on it in the afternoons, I realized the difference in sleep quality on this versus my own bed! I slept so much better… and woke up so fresh!
That’s when I ordered myself one for my bedroom as well!!
It’s a memory foam mattress… which actually makes sure that the pressure is distributed equally between all your body parts, and that it’s not pressing on just one part! So, your hips, back, neck, shoulders are all well and equally supported! Moreover, the mattress over a period of time starts adjusting to your body and to your sleeping posture. So basically, there was no ‘bad’ posture for me… just that my mattress, didn’t understand my sleeping posture! 😀
That I now think is the main reason why, I’ve stopped waking up with those body aches!
Sleepyhead also isolates motion… which, when you sleep with a partner, is one of the biggest advantages! What that means is that I don’t get disturbed each time Mr. Wolf twists or turns in his sleep… and he doesn’t wake up each time I wake up in the night to go drink water!
In fact, since Tiny and Tequila came into our lives, whenever I sleep in the afternoons, they run in and take their spots around me on the bed! Earlier, I’d wake up even with the movement of their little paws on the bed… Not anymore! They quietly come in, cuddle up and sleep next to me without me even realizing! 😀
Of course, the micro-fiber pillows are a blessing too…! They’re soft and cozy and extremely comfortable.
The result of all this is basically, a far more energetic and productive me throughout the day! And since there’s no more body-aches, I can work better, work-out better and feel fresher through the day!
Apart from that, being a fashion blogger, I have a lot of these early morning shoots, and usually, I’d sleep with a lot of stress – hoping and praying to not wake up with dark circles or puffy eyes! Thankfully, that worry is now gone because since I sleep sound, I wake up far fresher and my face looks brighter and glows in the morning! I haven’t had morning puffiness or lethargy in about a month… and that, is saying a lot!
Also, the mattress itself looks great! Obviously, I have sheets on and am not going to use it without bedsheets and a bed cover… but when you unpack it, the sight of this really classy and minimalistic looking mattress, is pure happiness!
All in all, there’s nothing more important, or more basic, in life than a good meal and a good sleep! And sleep for me, is finally going right! 😉
