New Year, New Sleep

Hi everyone, I hope you had a nice and restful weekend!

How are your new year resolutions going? This year, aside from my professional goals, I also want to give a little love back to my personal health and wellness. One of the things I want to work on is my sleep! As you know, I have two little ones at home (age 4 and 2), so it’s been a while since I’ve had a good night sleep without getting interrupted by them. And if I’m lucky that they’re sound asleep, I’m usually off doing work or checking my iPhone, which is a big no-no. So long story short, I haven’t gotten a full 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep in a long time, and I think many parents with kids can relate to this.

I often wake up feeling unrested or find myself hard to focus on tasks. I want to change that. I want to wake up feeling refreshed, energized and ready to tackle the day. My kids’ sleeping patterns are also getting better these days, so I feel that I’m ready to get myself back to a better night sleep.


One thing I’m doing right away is updating my mattress and pillow set. I constantly have neck pains and body aches and I know it’s because my body is not properly supported. One of the culprits is not having a reliable sleep set, especially pillows, I’ve always gotten the mediocre ones that flatten after a few months, and I never invested in quality sleep products. I’m in my mid-30s and I feel so embarrassed by this! But the truth is, I don’t know what to buy or what products to trust.

I was so excited when Sleep Innovations decided to partner with me and introduced me to their high quality and comfortable Memory Foam sleep products. They are surprisingly affordable and you can shop them on Amazon, so convenient! Sleep Innovations also just launched their Pinterest page, so check them out there for some more ideas and inspiration on adding comfort to your bedroom!

And if you’re interested in winning a Sleep Innovations mattress of your own, visit their Facebook as they are are hosting a giveaway contest! I tried out the entire set for a month and I honestly feel like I have a 5-star hotel bed in my own bedroom. Sounds so cheesy but I’m not even kidding you!

Having a comfortable mattress, pillow and topper is an integral part of feeling rejuvenated, and the best thing is that my body is getting the sleep it deserves. I’m still working on the 9-hours sleep, but at least I’m getting deep, quality sleep and it’s already improving on my overall health and wellness. It’s safe to say that my new bed and pillows are making me feel relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to face the day.

So, if you’re like me and are hoping to improve on your sleep and comfort, here are the products from Sleep Innovations you should check out:


1. 12-Inch Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress

This mattress came in a box which made it really easy to transport, and it was easy for me to set up on my bed once I opened it. I can feel the high quality. The moment I laid on the memory foam mattress, I instantly felt the therapeutic support and that my body felt properly aligned.

2. 4-Inch Dual Layer Mattress Topper

You want to know the secret to a hotel bed? This is the secret!

This is what made my bed feeling from a regular to a luxurious hotel bed! I couldn’t believe the difference it made. It comes in two separate layers (a) 2-inch gel-infused memory foam – in blue, and (b) a plush 2-inch down alternative layer – quilted. It forms to your body’s curve and makes you never want to get out of bed!

3. Memory Foam Pillows

Sleeping position is such a personal preference that having a pillow that can form to your comfort really makes a difference. Here are a few, very good options:

Left: Versacurve Memory Foam Pillow This is my favorite. I’m a side sleeper and I love the slight curve in the middle that fits into my shoulders. It’s also perfect for those who toss and turn!

Middle: Core Comfort Pillow. This one features a 3-layer design to maximize comfort and support. It also features 2 smooth sleeves of soft, highly conforming memory foam that surrounds a core gel of memory foam micro cushions. This ensures that this pillow is highly shapeable to be customized to your liking and offers support where you need it most.

Right: Adapticool Memory Foam Pillow. Designed to adapt to your unique shape and sleep position, to gently align your head and neck, with temperature activated.

Embrace Memory Foam Body Pillow. If you’re looking for additional support for improved rest, relief and relaxation, this is a great pillow to look into. It reduces uncomfortable pressure points and it customizes comfort.

I have never been so in love with my bed before. I mean, I’ve always loved my bed, but switching all my sleeping products is probably one of the best things I’m doing for myself in 2015.


I’m ready to spend less time on my iPhone….

And be ready to have a productive year ahead! Are you with me on this? :)
