Ever since my college years, a good night’s sleep has been a luxury for me. When I had my daughter, I began to understand the value of enough sleep to function optimally. Every new mom knows what that is like. You catch a few zzzzs here and there, in between naps and feedings, and rarely sleep through the night until your kids are away at a dorm. Even during the teenage years, you’re awakened at 2, 3 and 4 AM to check that they got home safely.
Fast-forward to my career as a writer, entrepreneur, frequent flyer, and juggler of way too many hats. Sleep is still a challenge for me, and even more so. As a coffee lover, even a whiff of it gives me a craving. So when I’m out for a client dinner, I usually have a skim cappuccino to end the meal, and never decaf. I go to bed with a MacBook, iPhone, and TV remote. I find it hard to fall asleep and even harder to stay asleep for more than a few hours at a time. I awake often in the wee hours remembering something I forgot to do or need to get done the next morning and text it to myself. I can recite almost every Law & Order episode ever made, from the original, to Criminal Intent, to SVU. I set the alarm on my phone for 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, and 8:00 am to be sure not to oversleep. I never ever close the curtains in my bedroom or hotel rooms for fear of oversleeping from exhaustion. I toss and turn throughout the night and often wake with sleep creases – the kind that can turn into wrinkles if you’re not careful.
One of the best investments I made are quality 800+ thread count bed linens and comfortable pillows, but I have never been able to get the mattress quite right – until NOW. I’ve noticed that I do sleep better in 5-star hotels like the St. Regis and Four Seasons (duh…). Why? Because they have the most plush, thick, decadent mattresses that don’t slump in the middle or slide away from the headboard.
Enter the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Mattress. Where have you been all my life? It’s firm but not too firm, and has opened up a whole new world for me. I LOVE relaxing on my Beautyrest mattress. I now look forward to going to sleep because I can. I have definitely seen an improvement in my restless sleep patterns. The pocketed coil technology provides comfort and support and the special memory foam helps maintain an ideal sleep temperature. Sleep is a beautiful thing.
Just try to take my Beautyrest mattress away… Look at it like this; a good mattress can last up to a decade, which comes to 3,650 sleepless nights you won’t have to suffer through.
Even the busiest of businesswomen like me, with a hectic out of control lifestyle, can awaken feeling more energized and recharged and ready to conquer the day. #GetYourBeautyrest
