This Purple Mattress Review was sponsored by Purple, all tips, opinions and thoughts are my own!
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to get more sleep! I really feel like I get more done when I get up early and get going on my day, but that means going to bed On Time or Earlier than I’m used to. I have really been working hard on getting more rest, and I thought I would share some things that have helped me get to sleep easier and on time.
7 Tips for Getting More Sleep
#1 – Use Natural Sleep Aids
We LOVE Lavender Essential Oil in our bedrooms, I like to start my diffuser with Lavender about an hour before I really need to be in bed, this helps me mentally start thinking about going to bed and it also helps the room smell great and it helps my body relax so that I can get a great nights sleep!
#2 – Make it a Habit
I know this is probably the hardest part, but going to bed at a consistent time helps your body adjust to the routine. It’s also easier to get up in the mornings if your consistent about what time you go to bed and wake up.
#3 – Set an Alarm
I have found that setting an alarm on your phone can be a great reminder, this can be a reoccurring alarm so that it goes off every night as a reminder to start heading to bed. It’s easy to loose track of the time and a simple reminder is all you need sometimes.
#4 – Put Your Phone Away
Did you know that over 70% of Americans sleep with their phone next to their bed? That’s a crazy high amount and if you really want to fall asleep quickly and get more rest try putting your phone on a dresser or table across the room, that way you aren’t tempted to stay up an extra 30-45 minutes scrolling through Facebook or Instagram.
DISCLAIMER: This is HARD!!! Like, seriously I thought I was going to go crazy so be ready for some Withdrawls. :)
#5 – Turn your Phone on Do Not Disturb
Unless your expecting someone to call in the middle of the night you can turn your Do Not Disturb setting on your phone on at night. This will keep annoying text messages and notifications from popping up distracting you and causing you to check your phone over and over again.
#6 – Opt for an Old Fashioned Book
We spend all day long on a Screen, we are watching TV, Browsing the Internet, Working at a Desk, Checking Facebook and Text Messages and then we crawl in bed with an iPad or Kindle. Let your eyes rest and relax with an old fashioned book! It’s a simple switch that will help your mind and body relax so you can fall asleep quickly.
#7 – Find the Right Mattress
Did you know that a Mattress Set that has been in use for Seven Years is no longer providing you with the best support? Finding the Right Mattress can be a lot like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, some are hard, some are soft and very few are Just Right! But the Purple Mattress (See my review below) Is JUST RIGHT! This is the first no pressure mattress and the Technology is already in a lot of other products your probably using!
A few months ago the people over at Purple challenged us to try out their new Purple Mattress and share our thoughts with you. You might remember watching this video I posted on Facebook of me sitting on an Egg, it was probably one of the weirder things I have done and I totally thought it was going to crush and I would have egg all over my pants, but you can see it for yourself here, the egg didn’t break and the same technology in the Purple Seat Cushion is also in the Purple Mattress.
The technology behind Purple Mattresses is revolutionary, it’s been licensed out to top brands like Nike & DrScholl’s. I got the chance to try out the Purple Mattress and I honestly thought it wouldn’t support me at all, But I was blown away by how soft the bed is, I am a side sleeper and sometimes I wake up with my Hips hurting but this mattress is comfortable (Not too hard) and yet it gives me the support I need to sleep on my side. Really it’s crazy!
I also love that it doesn’t hold heat like a Memory Foam Mattress, it’s so soft and comfortable + I thought just from looking at it that the Purple Honeycomb wouldn’t be very comfortable but this bed is covered in a great fabric and it’s not even really noticeable when you sit or lay on it.
PLUS! My 3 Favorite Things about Purple:
1) This Mattress is Under $1,000 for a Queen Size (Compare that to other Memory Foam Matresses and it’s a Great Deal)
2) Shipping is FREE! Seriously normally shipping is SO EXPENSIVE on a Big Item like this, but it’s totally Free and there are No Delivery Fees.
3) No Sales People. Shop from the comfort of your own home and get a 100 Day Guarantee so if for any reason you don’t love it you can return it!
