When I made the decision to invest more time and energy in my health, I knew that certain things had to change. Diet? Check. Exercise? Check. But after nights of tossing and turning, I realized there was one more thing that had to be altered: I needed to protect my sleep.
I know it seems silly to say that sleep is something that needs to be protected, but think of all the things that can disrupt it: phones next to the bed, televisions on all night, using a computer, sleeping on a bad mattress/uncomfortable bed. Sleep is the only time you have during the day to replace what you give away. I repeat: the human body is not an endless battery; it must be recharged, and sleep is the only way to do that.
Long story short, I needed a better night’s sleep, and that starts with a really good mattress.
Getting a new bed in New York City is not exactly the easiest proposition unless you live in a doorman building with elevators, which I do not. Enter the good folks of Casper Mattress, who have completely reimagined how mattresses perform. Essentially, this genius product sleeps like a hotel mattress, right in between super firm and soft. The best way I can describe sleeping on it is that you feel cradled and supported. Side sleeping, stomach sleeping, back sleeping – it doesn’t matter how you rest because it works in all positions. A combination of premium Latex foam and Memory foam, it stays cool, absorbs movement, and is essentially my favorite thing in my apartment. I’ve never slept as well, and it made a recent back injury completely tolerable.
The best part? They send it to you in a box small enough to fit through the door. I am not kidding. My queen-sized slice of heaven arrived compression packed into what’s essentially a wardrobe box, and it came right through the front door. Open the box, and there’s a kit with instructions on how to open it. It breathes a sigh of relief as it reconstitutes and becomes, well, your best bed ever.
A better night’s sleep is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Even better? I’m giving one away to a lucky winner.
