Five Benefits to Owning a Tempur-Pedic Mattress
Oct. 20, 2016 at midnight
Let's spend a few minutes talking about sleep because, as humans, we're likely to spend a third of our lives doing it. In fact, the average adult needs 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep each night to function properly during his or her waking hours. Sleeping is as crucial to our bodies as eating. These days, it seems we have so much more to do and so much less time available; once one starts trading in sleep to get more done, however, things are going to fall apart. Even a small decrease in the amount of sleep you're getting each night will deplete your energy, negatively impact your temperament, and consequentially lessen your ability to deal with stress. The long and short of it is: we need to sleep and we need to sleep well. To sleep well, we need a good mattress to sleep on. So why not get the best?
Below are five reasons why you should consider purchasing a Tempur-Pedic mattress:
Comfort – Tempur-Pedic is the benchmark by which all other mattresses are judged—and with good reason. Innerspring mattresses contain coiled metal springs that are then covered with fabric and padding. A Tempur-Pedic mattress is made from polyurethane foam. When you lie down on a Tempur-Pedic mattress, you feel it conform to the shape of your
body. This eliminates pressure points and the need for tossing and turning, which translates into a better night’s sleep.
Health Benefits – When you are getting the right amount and quality of sleep, your body responds by being tip-in top shape when you're awake. You're energized, productive, and in a winning mood. Getting a great night’s rest also means you're less likely to fall victim to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke or even diabetes.
Avoid Accidents – What do the nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, along with the Exxon Valdez disaster have in common? All three were, in part, caused by people suffering from sleep deprivation. Drowsiness decreases our response time as much as being intoxicated. Fatigue is responsible for 100,000 auto crashes and 1,550 crash related deaths each year.
￼￼Quality – Tempur-Pedic mattresses are made by rocket scientists—well, kind of. NASA created memory foam to increase the comfort of rocket seats during takeoff. The pressurized cabin caused the foam to crack, and NASA abandoned the idea. A Swedish foam company, Fagerdala, stepped in and took over. The Tempur-Pedic was born.
Warranty – Sleep is a necessity, not a luxury. That said, you can find cheaper mattresses out there. Initially, you'll pay less. But when you find yourself going back to the furniture store every few years to buy a new mattress, you will pay more in the long run. Tempur-Pedic mattresses come with a twenty-year warranty. That means you can sleep worry free for the next 7,300 days. To put it another way: the average cost of a cup of coffee today is $2.35; the average cost of sleeping on a top of the line Tempur-Pedic mattress for twenty years is $1.17 a day. For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can reap all the benefits of being well- rested and functioning at your peak.
