Thankful For: Our Mattress

Each day up to and including Thanksgiving I will post about one thing I am thankful for. I invite you to do the same if you like the idea.

Today, I am thankful for our mattress.

Mattresses are funny things, everyone has a particular thing they are looking for in a mattress to help them get a full night’s sleep, and let’s face it…good sleep is important stuff!  Some people like stiff mattresses with little give that keeps them quite flat. Other people want a softer mattress that engulfs their body in plush. Our mattress falls somewhere in between. However, the particular feature we were looking for was movement isolation.  My wife and I both tend to move around a lot. We are not strictly back sleepers and will flip from side to side, to belly, to back throughout the night. On a traditional mattress the whole bed would shake each time and disturb the other. To remedy this, we settled on a memory foam based mattress that is quite comfortable and does an amazing job at absorbing the extra movements when either of us moves around. It has improved our sleep quality each night immensely.

What are you thankful for today?
