I have to get right up on a soap box.
But first you must know, this is totally on my own accord. I am not being coerced in any way to discuss the following product.
And I'm just going to come right out and say it.
No, shout it.
From the rooftops.
I LOVE TEMPUR-PEDIC!!!!!
In the last three years I have blogged, I've probably mentioned my sleep issues at least 50 times.
I have insomnia.
We're talking, can go 2 nights at a time without a wink of sleep, wake up at 3 am only to never fall back asleep, or simply just can't fall asleep at all.
I'm one of those people who has to have perfect sleep conditions: black-out curtains (where I have taped any slots so not even a glimmer of light can shine through), I put underwear over any electronics that give off any amount of light, we have a fan running for a consistent noise, and of course the temperature has to be perfect.
And when I'm stressed?
I will goes weeks without sleep.
And it is pure torture.
I finally noticed a gradual change in my ability to sleep when I quit my corporate job just over a year ago.
It was like, BOOM - I quit and suddenly I was SLEEPING. Not fully through the night. But I could actually go three or four nights a week with a pretty good night's sleep.
And then about a year later, my life changed forever. And I know I tend to be a bit dramatic at times, but I'm not kidding. My life has totally changed...thanks to our new Tempur-Pedic Cloud Mattress.
I have been sleeping SOUNDLY through the night for the past 2 months.
Oh my goodness.
If you only knew how light of a sleeper I am. I could wake up if a ladybug was crawling on the floor. Not kidding. I'd hear it.
And I usually wake up a dozen times a night.
Now, I barely wake up to my alarm. And I rarely even wake up ONCE during the middle of the night.
I won't lie. I did not want a Tempur-Pedic. I thought it was some silly marketing ploy...I mean the things are really expensive. And when we went mattress shopping, we went in KNOWING we would not get a Tempur-Pedic. We have several friends who swear up and down that the things are pure magic. We didn't get the big deal.
Until we caved and got one of our own.
Now I get the big deal.
I will say, they definitely take some getting used to at first. In fact, I was ready to send it back after 2 weeks. But once my body adjusted, everything was more than perfect. Now I will never ever ever go back to another mattress.
And now, I actually look forward to getting into bed.
I used to constantly take naps because I never got a good night's sleep.
Not anymore! :)
