How To Sleep Better | 6 Sleep Tips
For our first few years of marriage, we went through 2 hand-me-down mattresses. We didn’t realize how bad it really was and I thought waking up to a sore back and hips was just getting older. We got our Nectar mattress about a month ago and I literally have nothing bad to say about it. It was super easy to open up and set up, we even did it with 2 kids and a puppy “helping”. From the first night sleeping on it, I noticed a huge difference in how well I slept and how I felt waking up in the morning. I no longer feel like I got hit by a train when I wake up, the mattress is supportive yet super soft and comfy. I’m impressed that Chris and I both love it because that rarely happens because I like soft and he likes firm usually. Lastly, what we have both noticed is that once were snuggled into bed we don’t move, I used to flip over and over all night but when I wake up I don’t remember moving at all. I can honestly say Nectar has helped us sleep so much better and I’m so thankful.
