Sleep is important. Duh.
But only recently I realized the quality of my R&R wasn’t up to snuff. For years, I slept on a crap-tress (AKA a crappy mattress) but a) I was a young new homeowner, so spending money on something I already had wasn’t a priority, and b) I worked from home, so I slept long hours, woke up naturally and had a comfy couch at my disposal at all times, so it wasn’t important to me… then.
Once I signed on to film my HGTV show, I had to completely change my sleep schedule (and, well, my self-care routine too).
I now get up at 5 or 6am daily and don’t get home to bed most nights until late. After a few months of feeling crotchety upon waking,– which should not be the case when you’re 26 — I realized I needed to do something. Between Piper jumping on and off the bed all night and sleeping on popped coils, I simply wasn’t getting a good quality sleep.
So I made a big commitment and decided to update my sleep game with Tempur-Pedic‘s Embrace Queen mattress, a new 4.5″ boxspring (which is awesomely thin), and Soft + Conforming pillows. Naturally, I used this as an opportunity to update my bedroom’s design. And today — two weeks into sleeping on my new Tempur-Pedic products — I’m sharing my honest review and my tips for getting a better night’s sleep.
