It is nothing new that I am always busy and on the go and get very little sleep. They say adults need an minimum of 8h of sleep, and most of the days I only get 6h as I have so much on my plate. But now I am learning to prioritize sleep time, and get good use of my AleaSleep mattress… Last month, I thought I had developed an allergic reaction to my shower gel or something as I had rashes that were quickly spreading throughout my body. I went to the doctor, and he told me it was actually virus caused by stress and lack of sleep! This was a sign from my body telling me to slow down and get some proper sleep!
I also spend a lot of hours in bed working on my computer (like right now writing this review) so for me a comfy mattress is a must. Sleeping well will put you in such a better mood the following day, will increase your productivity, and will give you health!
A rolled-mattress? Are you serious?
We decided to check all that buzz about rolled-mattress that get delivered right to your door, and decided to try the Sanctuary mattress by AleaSleep , which is Canadian company actually based in Toronto (always nice to support local companies). Our appartment is pretty small so for us it was wonderful that the mattress came in rolled up so that it didn’t take up the whole place while we got rid of the previous mattress. And our mattress is King size so imagine having 2 huge mattresses at home… The mattress is quite heavy so I suggest you get help to bring it to your bedroom and unroll it.
Once you unroll the mattress and lay it on the bed, the mattress inflates and takes its actual form super fast. You could actually go to sleep 10 minutes later. However, the final form will take a few more hours.
100% organic latex
This is a latex mattress, and I recall my parents always telling me I should get a latex mattress because they are best, specially for my fiancé who suffers from lower back pain, but I didn´t really listen to them until now. But let me tell you they were right (I mean are parents ever wrong?!)
How firm is the Aleasleep mattress?
We also always thought that firm mattresses would be better for back pain, but this AleaSleep mattress is soft, and is actually really supportive and comfortable, specially if you like sleeping on your side or facing down like me! My fiancé also says he wakes up feeling better in the morning with less of a back pain than before! The mattress has a transition layer for comfort and uncompromised pressure relief. It´s been over a week, and I´ve slept like a baby every single night.
Can you feel the person sleeping next to you?
It will also make you feel like you´re sleeping alone (shhh!) As much as I love my fiancé, there is nothing like being able to fully stretch and move without feeling bad that you are going to disturb and wake up your partner, and apparently I move a lot when sleeping. The mattress eliminates movement transfer between you and your partner. BIG PLUS!
Does the mattress retain heat?
With my previous mattress I often felt hot in the middle of the night and I would then wake up. But this new AleaSleep mattress has a technology that allows the mattress to breath allowing airflow to pass underneath the mattress avoiding the mattress to heat up.
It also used to take me quite a bit to fall asleep, but with this mattress I don´t turn around a 100 times before I fall asleep. It might also be because I am less stressed as I have decided to not take any University courses until after my wedding.
Check the mattress comparison!
Getting a new mattress can be stressful with so many options out there, I hear you! AleaSleep has a chart on their website that compares mattresses from different companies, so you might want to check this out before you make a decision! AleaSleep has a 101 night free trial, so that´s always good if you are unsure and want to give it a try for more than 2 minutes.
And on that note, I am going to stay in bed just a little bit longer as I have a busy day ahead and I want to start the day relaxed with no stress.
Have a weekend everyone,
