Get good sleep.

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.  During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. During sleep, your brain is preparing and healing for the next day. It’s forming new pathways to help you learn and remember information. (from National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute)

Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart problems, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and brain disease. Sleep deficiency also increases the risk of obesity. (from National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute)

So clearly we know that sleep is important and that if we don’t get our 7-8 hours a night, we won’t function well throughout the day. I know I already don’t sleep well because all the health issues I suffer from. So sleep for me especially is vital. Taking naps throughout the day is not the answer. And I’ve never had a full 8 hours of sleep in years.

I already sleep on an orthopedic bed with a mattress topper with support for the spine. I try to make my sleepy time as comfortable as I can because the Lord knows I barely get any as is. But I got the opportunity to try out TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling Pillow from Relax The Back. I have been using the pillow for some time now and I love the comfort of it. One of the things I love about it most is that it’s an all sleepers pillow. By that I mean, it fits anyone who sleeps in any position. I usually sleep on my sides, but I will also sleep on my back and on my stomach and this pillow fits to YOU.

Its cool, literally. You know how some of us have to flip it to the “cool side of the pillow”? This one you don’t. It has a coolness to it every single time you flip your head, even on your neck! Almost feels like a cool towel, I promise you! It comes it REAL handy here in Florida. It has a soft feel to it and a removable cover that is washable. Makes it better that it’s breathable.

Lyssa trying to steal my TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling Pillow

I’ve had a good nights rest since I was introduced to this amazing pillow from Relax The Back. They have soooo many great things for Scoliosis! I was so in love and eager to try out many of their other things, but I was so excited for this pillow. Having a spinal curve, along with a progressing curve in my neck, I need as much support and comfort as possible. And this pillow certainly does it’s job.

You can see the cooling gel layer which is on both sides.

If you are a side sleeper, or an all over the place sleeper, give this pillow a try. You’ll love it and your spouse will want to steal it from you…it’s that good. Go to Relax The Back to see all their pillows and other great sleeper options. I am very picky, correction…my back is picky on what it likes. Comfort doesn’t come easy, but at least this pillow makes sleeping a lot easier for me. I am happy with my TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling Pillow. I recommend it to any and everyone! As runners, we NEED our sleep! Running a race with little to no sleep will make that race hard, (cough cough Dopey cough cough) so having a good supportive pillow that will help relax and comfort you is important. This one has you covered.
