Whether it was just time to change my mattress or perhaps the fact that I am not as young as I used to be…my back suffered every morning when I woke up for the last 2 years. I would ask myself a series of questions:
Did I sleep in an awkward position?
Did I use my muscles differently at the gym?
Was my posture poor during the day?
Could there be a medical condition causing me this pain when I woke up?
Due to the age of my then current mattress, I decided the replacement was long overdue. Our company, Ri, LLC distributes Thevo mattresses from Thomashilfen. Those who try the mattress rave about them and I recently have been given the opportunity to try one out for myself. I suppose the reason I waited so long to try it out and basically chose to live with back pain every morning was the hassle of switching mattresses as well as the financial investment in a new mattress (I would much rather spend that money at the mall!).
Well, as we know, hind sight is always 20/20! Had I known the difference this mattress would have made 2 years ago I never would have hesitated to make the investment. I like to consider myself a fairly healthy person. I exercise almost every day; eat healthy, drink lots of water. I love to read about improving overall well-being and often implement positive changes to my life. I have given presentations on the importance of a good night’s sleep and obsessed over the hours of sleep that I got each night to maintain my so called “healthy life style.” I’m not sure why it took me so long to put 2 and 2 together to determine that it was my mattress was causing my back pain and decreasing the quality of my sleep which affected me throughout the day!
Low and behold I am absolutely thrilled with my new mattress! I wake up with no pain at all! I feel as though I have gotten a solid night’s sleep. I am not nearly as tired as I used to be throughout the day! The unique configuration of the THEVO mattress evenly supports my weight throughout my body. I can feel the support all down my spine which is due to the cut of the foam and the various densities. I can feel the contact at my head, shoulders, hips and heels. I wake up feeling rested. It is extremely comfortable, well worth the investment and the single most positive change I have made for my well-being!
