I know that I’ve had countless weekend
mornings when I’ve wanted to stay in bed, weather to nurse a
hangover or to just enjoy the extra precious minutes one gets only
on weekends, only to find, that I can’t seem to get into or stay in
a comfortable position, which is giving me back pain and my pillows
are lumpy and now I have a stiff neck!
It wasn’t until a recent bout of neck and
shoulder stiffness (brought about by long hours at my desk and made
worse by improper sleep posture) highlighted to me the importance of
having the right pillow. Not to mention the time
As a working mother of two young kids I have
learnt that there are few things in life as precious as sleep.
However, many of those in my position will agree that a there are
several factors that can affect a good night’s sleep, to name a few
– the neighbor’s dogs that serve as live alarm systems for every
passing vehicle, thin apartment walls coupled with neighbors who
know nothing about the volume button on their TV remotes, or tossing
and turning on a lumpy, creaky mattress. Of all the possible reasons
to lose sleep, a bad mattress is not one of them.
My job takes me all over the country and and
while I do enjoy the thrill of visiting new places, and as much as
the travelling sates the wanderlust in me, the one thing I miss
sorely when I’m away is my bed, or to be more specific my mattress.
My precious memory foam mattress, which I arrived at after much
trial and error, always ensures that I get the rest I need without
waking up with any nagging aches and pains.
