If you know anything about me, you know that I’m huge about self-care. Back in 2015, when I had my sort of “wake up call” about how much taking care of yourself matters, everything shifted in terms of how I started treating myself. Like, everything.
One of the biggest changes I made was how I slept. I went and got tested for sleep apnea, and not shocking to anyone who’s ever slept next to me, I have it. Big time. In fact, it’s so bad, that my breathing literally stopped (get this) 79 times an hour. The fact that I wasn’t dying every night was a miracle.
Once I got my CPAP machine, I realized how much my sleep had improved. But because I was sleeping much deeper, I was also becoming hyper-aware of my mattress, and while I was sleeping great, I was waking up every morning with a stiff back and random aches and pains. I tried a few mattresses over the years, and they all had their plusses and minuses.
Then, last month, I got sent a Molecule Mattress. I’m not sure how to explain this – It’s either the softest hard mattress I’ve ever tried, or the hardest soft mattress I’ve ever tried. Either way, it’s been a game-changer. Oh – And it NEVER. GETS. HOT.
According to the company, The Molecule CopperWELL™ Hybrid Mattress has something called “cool-to-the-touch cooling technology” so I don’t sweat as much in my sleep, and I can feel the difference in support (like a perfect blend of pressure relief and support) from their copper-infused memory foam. Not joking, I can really feel the difference. (As apparently, can Waffle.)
I asked them why I was sleeping so much better on the Molecule Mattress than on my previous mattress, (along with my dog) and they sent me something like, 30 pages of research on sleep. Well, my ADHD kicked into overdrive, so I asked for bullet points. Here’s what I got:
- Cool-to-the-touch fabric with cooling technology built in at the fiber level
- Microban AEGIS Microbe Shield® antimicrobial cover protection treatment
- MOLECULEedge™ foam encased coils for advanced edge support
- CopperWELL™ copper-infused memory foam provides the perfect blend of pressure relief and support
- 5-zone support layer designed to support you exactly where you need it and maximize airflow
- AirTEC™ foam layer features 5x the airflow vs. traditional memory foam and gives responsiveness and buoyancy with unprecedented airflow
Whatever all that means, it means I’m sleeping like a baby for the first time in like, 20+ years. And that’s nothing to wake up over. I’m pretty amazed by the mattress.
You don’t realize how important sleep is until you tie in all the things you’re NOT doing at your best because of your lack of enough sleep. This includes everything from working to listening, paying attention to exercise. There is literally NOTHING in our lives that our quality of sleep doesn’t impact. Want to get up early and own the day? You need to sleep better than you are.
This Molecule mattress helps me do that.
