Tempur-Pedic Says the #ChoiceisYours

If I don’t get a solid eight hours of sleep, I turn into a grumpy zombie. This used to happen a lot when we had what I like to call “the brick mattress,” which I was convinced was just a box spring with an inch of padding on top. It was the kind of mattress that had me making excuses to sleep on the couch.

Initially, someone (ahem) wasn’t convinced we needed to get a Tempur-Pedic. So we went to try out the different memory foam mattresses – and then we laid on a Tempur-Pedic. Then we laid on all the Tempur-Pedic mattresses. Multiple Times. The salespeople began to hover, nervous that we would never leave the store.

Since the quality of my sleep has vastly improved, I don’t drink nearly as much coffee as I used to. My body doesn’t ache in weird places anymore. I can’t tell when James, an active sleeper, is moving around next to me. So in essence, it’s saved us on the costs of coffee, chiropractor appointments, and probable couples’ counseling. That’s a win-win-win.

Tempur-Pedic is releasing their new TEMPUR-Choice™ mattress, which features multiple adjustable comfort zones. I had the chance to lay on one this past weekend and I began plotting where else we could put another bed because I need one.

While I’m working on finding us a bigger house for our future Tempur-Pedic, you can enter the Tempur-Pedic Pin to Win contest for a chance to win one of your own.

Avoid the Grumpies

Without enough sleep (or enough food), I am a very unpleasant human being. In fact, I don’t even know if I qualify as a human at that point — surly, disheveled Muppet would be more accurate. So I go to pretty extreme lengths to get as much sleep as possible. Working at home is an enormous bonus on that front. But aside from that, I’ve accumulated a number of lovely things that help me feel like I’m sleeping in a fluffy cloud.

1. Incase Reflex Headphones  2. Martha Stewart Sleep Wise Gusset Foam Pillow  3. Ikea Rens Sheepskin  5. Aerie Softest Robe

Perhaps the greatest find of 2011 was these Beech sheets from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Lindsey found them, washed them, slept in them, and sent me a euphoric text: YOU MUST BUY THESE SHEETS!!! Since this is the woman who recommended Mario Badescu’s skincare line, which ended my fifteen year struggle with acne, I usually take these recommendations pretty seriously. The sheets are heavenly. I want five sets of them. I want clothes made out of them. They’re the shit.

Also, if you have trouble turning off your brain at night, you should definitely try hypnosis. The iTunes store sells an app by Hypnotransformations called “Sleep Soundly” that’s pretty amazing. The layers of sound come through in waves, so it’s important to have a good pair of headphones. Will you wake up with somewhat crazy hair? Probably. That’s what flat irons are for.
