I always used to find it difficult to sleep properly and now I know the exact reason why but I was always too lazy to see to the problem. The littlest changes can make a huge impact when it comes to getting a good night's sleep. This could be turning your mobile or iPad off before you sleep, keeping your window open during the night or even treating yourself to some brand new bed covers.
On this occasion, it was something a little different that kept me tossing and turning during the night. The lack of elevation. I have four pillows on my bed, two on each side but they are admittingly years old and as flat as pancakes. This meant that for me to even consider an okay sleep, I would need my head to rest on THREE of these pillows.
When Time4Sleep got in touch to ask if I was interested in trying out some memory foam pillows, I couldn't turn down the offer. My sister has a memory foam mattress so I know memory foam is just about the comfiest thing ever!
I received two of their Cool Touch pillows* which upon arrival were in separate protective carrier cases and retail at £40 each. The Cool Touch pillows are made out of a fabric which 'breathes'. Upon lying down, the heat and moisture generated by your body will evaporate and your body will be kept cool throughout the night. As soon as I opened them, I felt that they were incredibly soft to touch and my hands sank into them so I seriously couldn't wait to try them out that night!
I have been using them every single night for a good few months in order for me to be able to give them a fair review. I wasn't sure if they would start to go flat after a while or if the comfort would start to wear off. However, I am happy to report that they have still kept their shape and texture and are as good as new! I now find I only need to sleep with the one pillow as opposed to two or three and get a brilliant night's sleep without waking up in the night uncomfortable or in the morning with dreaded neck pain.
I now understand that the bedding you have is the most important thing when it comes to getting the most perfect night's sleep and I can't believe it's taken me so long to figure this out!
