My sleep assessment results just came back, turns out that I’m not getting the REMS that I really need. I went into the sleep facility and slept with censors on every night for a week. They had a number of graphs that calculated how many hours of deep sleep I received, how many times I woke up, and at what stage of the sleep cycle I woke up in. While there I was sleeping on a Saatva luxury firm mattress, which I really liked. At home I don’t have a very high quality mattress, but even with this improved sleeping experience, I didn’t get a great night’s sleep.
I spoke with a physican, who had a number of sleep recommendations. He said that I should try sleeping on my side or my back, rather than my stomach. This is uncomfortable for me currently, but I guess it will pay big dividends in the long run. He also mentioned that I should put a pillow between my legs to keep my posture aligned. Finally, he said that I should invest in a quality mattress. The reviews of the Saatva mattress are very good, so I’m going to check my bank account to see if it’s time to make the investment.
The matter of the issue is that getting a better mattress and pillow, and thus a better night’s sleep, will surely make me feel much better in the long run. I just hope that I will get the good night’s sleep soon! I’ve been lagging a at work, drinking more coffee to stay alert, and tossing and turning all night. It hasn’t been a pleasant situation, but if I can make some small changes to improve the situation, I would definitely be happy to make them.
The best recommendation I’ve seen is from this Saatva mattress review video. They go through every point about the manufacturing, and even things like the customer service. They do say a few bad things about the mattress, but overall the review is very positive, and has convinced me that I should get one. Here I come sleep, very excited!
