Everyone seems to want to know how to get a good nights sleep. It is a simple question but one that people ask over and over again hoping to find that secret formula. Why? Because not getting enough sleep or getting poor quality sleep can impact on so many aspects of a persons life, from your general health and well being to overall mood and even the ability to function effectively both cognitively and physically.
Here at The Strawberry Fountain we have already explored some of the ways to get a good nights sleep and we have also discussed the common causes of a poor sleep patterns because knowing the cause and being able to make changes can make all the difference. But sometimes a good bed time routine and actively following mindfulness techniques are not enough to ensure a good nights sleep. Sometimes the key to getting a good nights sleep is all down to your bed, mattress, bedding and pillows.
If you are currently not getting a good quality sleep on a regular basis than ask yourself these questions
What is wrong with the sleep you are getting?
Are you comfy from the minute you get in to bed?
Do you wake up with aches and pains?
Are you too cold or too hot?
Once you have evaluated your current sleeping experience try and think back to a time when you did sleep well. Where were you? What was different about the mattress or pillows? Some people prefer harder mattresses others opt for a softer one. If you are unsure what you need there are now specialist bed shops that offer sleep analysis. They get you to lie on a bed and a computer program is used to analyse the way you position yourself and that, along with information that you provide, is used to tell you what mattress you need for a good nights sleep.
Now as amazing as all this sounds, unfortunately, a new mattress can be very expensive and not something that can always be replaced that easily or that often. However, there is a more affordable alternative that can be just as effective at improving your quality of sleep and comfort levels. A mattress topper.
What is a mattress topper?
A mattress topper is an extension of your mattress. It lies on top of your current mattress and adds additional support or comfort. It can be used to prolong the life of your mattress or change the overall feel, firmness and comfort if required. Mattress toppers are available in a variety of styles, they can be purchased for all beds from single to super king size and vary in price.
The Sleepeeze natural mattress topper
For the past month we have been using the Sleepeezee natural mattress topper on our bed.
The Sleepeezee natural mattress topper is made from natural materials. It has a decadent British wool layer as well as a layer of iFibre for a truly comfortable rest each night. There are four elastic straps, one in each corner, that makes it easy to attach and it fits neatly under your bed sheets with no need to buy bigger ones.
The Sleepeezee natural mattress topper review
When our mattress topper first arrived I was a little disappointed with the packaging. It arrived in a clear bag, no box, no branding and for the price didn’t look very nice. I raised this with the company and they have assured me that Sleepeezee are looking into this at the moment and hopefully they will start to put a little more effort into their branding soon.
However, we all know you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover so, pushing my slight disappointment to one side we unwrapped the Sleepeezee natural mattress topper and popped it on our bed. It wasn’t as thick as I had imagined but it was very soft to the touch and looked comfy. It was also very easy to fit, it simply attaches to the corners of the mattress and then you put the bottom sheet on over the top as you would normally.
From the very first night both my husband and I noticed a difference in the comfort of our bed. We both agreed that we slept better than we usually did and I personally didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning.
A month later and we are still both loving the Sleepeezee natural mattress topper. Not only is our bed comfier but it also seems a lot warmer. Our current memory foam mattress is 6 years old and not as comfy as it was when we first bought it. In fact it is most probably due to be replaced soon but by adding the mattress topper we have definitely managed to extend it’s life a little and can put off that big purchase for a while longer.
If you are looking to improve your quality of sleep or think you need to give your mattress a new lease of life then I would definitely recommend the Sleepeezee natural mattress topper. In my opinion if you want to know how to get a good nights sleep then this is how to do it.
