So a few months back my husband started having some lower back pain. He tried everything from stretching, exercising and orthotics for his shoes (yes we're eighty). Nothing worked. Then someone asked about his sleep. I don't know why we hadn't thought of this but it made so much sense. When we moved from our last house our mattress had to be folded in half to get down the stairs. We didn't think of it at the time but it completely ruined the inside of our mattress. We did some research on mattresses (and how to get better sleep) and confirmed that a new mattress was most likely the solution.
I'm not going to lie, I was a little skeptical about a mattress arriving in a box. How is there a king size mattress in there? Do I need to do anything to blow it up? How long would it take? Guys, I was so surprised, I took it out of the package and it started expanding right in front of my eyes. It was fully grown within a few minutes - unbelievable. Check out my instagram stories to see it!
So the true test was sleep. I've tried memory foam mattresses before and I found they were too soft and didn't sustain support. The Leesa Mattress has all the benefits of a memory foam mattress but it has a way better memory (so to speak). The pressure-relieving support is an understatement. My husband and I both slept better and we cannot believe the change it has made to our daily awake lives. Seriously, I wasn't putting enough emphasis on a good sleep. Not only am I feeling better physically but I'm happier and I'm a better mom to the boys (that tired edge is gone).
Hooray for better sleep! Oh yes, and my husband's back pain is gone (and so are the orthotics).
