I’ve struggled getting good sleep all my life. Don’t get me wrong, I love sleeping. But something I realized was that I was rarely getting enough quality sleep. Rarely did I feel genuinely refreshed in the morning, and more often than not, I felt like I could really use a couple more hours of sleep. The whole COVID situation had me incredibly stressed, and the lack of good sleep was starting to affect my performance at work. After a particularly bad day, I finally reached my breaking point and decided to try and fix the problem at its source.
I’ve always tried to get seven to eight hours of sleep, so there wasn’t much room to just get more sleep. That said, after a more in-depth analysis of my bedtime routine, I realized how bad some of my other habits were. I’d been a coffee addict since high school and used caffeine as a pick me up throughout the day. This habit obviously had a negative impact on the quality of my sleep, but I had always been able to fall asleep, so I didn’t think it was an issue. After doing some research, I found there was likely a direct link between decreased sleep quality and my coffee consumption. So I decided to try and remove any caffeine intake for a week and see what difference it made for my sleep.
To be fair, the first few days were brutal. But after a few days, I noticed a subtle but steady improvement in my sleep quality. I was delighted and encouraged by the progress. Another bad habit of mine was choosing to go through my emails and social media right before falling asleep. While bragging about my newfound caffeine removal, a friend told me how screen-time right before bed could be a huge detriment to a good night’s sleep. After looking into it and seeing the evidence myself, I also looked to optimize this part of my daily sleep ritual. This seemed to help, but it was by no means as dramatic as the caffeine reduction.
Encouraged by the progress, but still not quite happy with how I felt in the morning, I knew there was more to be done. Funnily enough, a few days later, a coworker was talking about a new mattress he bought and how his sleep quality had improved ever since. I couldn’t believe I had overlooked my eight-year-old, well-loved mattress. That night I started my search. I needed something high quality but didn’t have money to waste on the wrong purchase. After discussing and comparing, I chose a really cute looking mattress called the Nectar mattress. It had thousands of positive reviews and a very reasonable price tag, so I decided to give it a shot. It was a great deal considering it came with a lifetime warranty and free shipping!
I couldn’t wait to try my new bed! When it arrived, I was shocked at how quick and easy it was for me to get the mattress all set up! I hadn’t even realized how worn out, and uncomfortable the old mattress was until I tried my new Nectar mattress. I knew I had made the right choice from the moment I sat on the Nectar mattress. I was in love!
It just doesn’t feel like any ordinary mattress, and the amazing bargain didn’t hurt either! While I was pretty excited about the new mattress, I was skeptical that changing something so simple could make a huge difference. Oh boy, was I was surprised! The new bed did not disappoint at all. Sleeping on my new mattress really made me realize that I should have bought a new mattress long ago. It was like the mattress adjusted to my body, and the lightweight structure felt super comfortable. The first night I was amazed when I woke up thirty minutes before the alarm rang. I can’t remember the last time that happened, if ever.
Throughout the first week, the new Nectar mattress helped me wake up more easily, feeling totally refreshed when the alarm went off. I was amazed at what deeper sleep did to help me to actually feel better rested!
The best part is, my Nectar Sleep Mattress came with $399 in really amazing accessories included in my purchase to help me sleep even better. It came with the softest set of sheets, a great cooling pillow, and a mattress protector to keep my bed just like new! Basically, a whole sleep kit.
One thing I now know for sure is how much of a difference effort to improve your sleep quality can have on your overall quality of life. Never compromise on sleep. After all, most people spend almost a third of their lives asleep. It’s essential to get the best sleep you can!
