Investing In Better Sleep

This post is sponsored by Tomorrow Sleep. All opinions are my own.

Sleep is one of life’s unsung heroes. I’ve been talking a lot about it over the past few weeks with 11 Tips To Help You Get Quality Sleep and Sleep 101 – Sleep Tips To Keep You Healthy.

I feel like we spend so much time talking about what to eat and tips to workout more, but we spend very little time talking about how to improve the other third of our lives…the time we spend resting, recharging, repairing, fighting disease and strengthening our immunity.

We spend a lot of money on fancy cooking equipment and workout pants, but how do we invest in improving our sleep? The answer is pretty simple, get a good bed. I mean, you spend more time in in than anywhere else in your entire home. If you spent more money on your couch than your bed, it’s time to reprioritize!

For the past six weeks I’ve been sleeping in my most favorite dream haven ever, my brand new Tomorrow Sleep mattress with Smart BedTM technology. I could not be happier. It’s not just a one off comfy pillow, it’s an entire system designed to optimize, measure, understand and improve your sleep. Here’s what I’m talking about:

The Mattress

This is the coziest of hybrid mattress! It’s the only mattress designed to adjust to your body temperature so that you get higher quality sleep. I didn’t even know this was possible, but it has built in ventilation for continuous airflow.

And it’s coil based so you can toss and turn all you want and you won’t disturb your significant other. All these fancy details aside, the bed is amazingly comfortable and both my boyfriend and I have been sleeping like professional athletes since I unpacked it.

The Sheets

The sheets are perfect for warm nights, made of Supima, they are silky smooth and most definitely temperature controlled. They are super breathable so you don’t turn into a hot sweaty mess. If you’re someone who runs at a high temperature, you would love these. And this is just one of those tiny details…they are slightly oversized so making the bed is a piece of cake.

The Sleep Tracker

This is probably the coolest feature. I love how comfy and cool the bed is, but the data that comes out of the sleep sensors is unreal. I’ve had a Fitbit for years, which also gives some pretty good insight into your sleeping patterns.

These sensors sit under the mattress near your head (there are 2, one for each sleeper) and are hooked up through your wi-fi. I did have a little trouble getting it to connect and had to update all my wi-fi settings but once it was set up, it was totally worth it.

The reports show you not just when you slept, but the quality of sleep you got. It also tracks your heartbeat and breath rate. You’ll also get a sleep score, a indicator of overall sleep quality. So it’s not just about how much you sleep, but also the efficiency, phases and number of times you wake up. They say aim for 75 or above, I’m very proud of my 81. LOL.

Knowing sleep data is one thing, but then what good would that be without a coach or some other information to make change. You might be like “um. I know I’m a bad sleeper, I don’t need a sensor to tell me that!” But I do think you would appreciate the coaching and lifestyle questions that come along with the data to really help you make smarter choices before bed to improve your sleep quality.

Hooking yourself up with better sleep

Now really is the perfect time to invest in your sleep. Whether it’s a gift to someone or reward for yourself to help you achieve your health goals in 2018, now is a great time to think about it.

Tomorrow Sleep has been generous enough to offer $100 your mattress – no code needed!

Head on over to their site and get your mattress. Offer ends December 25, 2017!
