Everyone sleeps right!? But everyone sleeps differently. Sleep is an essential part of all living creatures and each of us want to make sure we are sleeping comfortably. There are so many things to consider about our bedding and how it affects us and the sleep we get. When it comes to sleeping, I have discovered a few things the older I get:
1. Your body does care about what it sleeps on the older you get. You can't sleep on floors like children do; You can't pass out on a couch like you did in college; You can't fall asleep at a desk or on top of a laptop pulling an all-nighter for school or work, like you've probably done in the past. A mattress is an essential tool for sleeping at any age, but a necessity for those past the previously listed points in someone's life.
3. You truly cannot put a price on comfort. You all know I am all about saving money and finding a great deal, but as with everything I have discovered over time, you get what you pay for. Taking the time to research and making an educated purchase no matter what the dollar amount, is going to result in getting your moneys worth from the get go.
So, I realized that while saying all of this to Kevin, I have known we were in need of a new mattress. Not only are we getting older, but we are noticing much more easily how products like this can affect us. We toss and turn throughout the night; We are too hot or too cold regardless of weather outside; We constantly wake up sore; And most importantly we have noticed different allergies, sicknesses, and reactions to our current nights rest.
I have to say that Tempur-Pedic seems to be the standard for excellence in the industry, but I wanted to do deeper research that went beyond brand recognition, so I also read through the various online reviews and ratings, as well as this Tempurpedic mattress review and comparison article that not only gave some more incite into memory foam, but compared a Tempflow memory foam mattress side by side with a Tempurpedic.
What did we think of each and which one did we choose? Find out soon....
