As adults, I think we have all been told plenty of times that in order to stay healthy, maintain a proper weight and function on a daily basis that we need a solid 8 hours of sleep every night. Yet as usual, theory is often incongruent with the modern realities of life. Being required to be “on call 24/7”, taking care of kids, parents and sometimes spouses, and excessive distractions around bed time—yes that includes binging on Netflix— often lead us to get only 5 or 6 hours a sleep a night. In addition to the lack of quantity of sleep that we get, often times poor posture, nagging injuries, and tossing and turning lead us to have a low quality of sleep as well.
Luckily over the past few years, companies have begun to take the matter of sleep seriously and have introduced new products ranging from pillows, beds, and blankets to help improve our quality of sleep. Recently, I had a chance to sleep on a few of intelliBED’s latest products and have only positive things to say.
For the past few years, sleep and I have always been at odds. A couple of years ago, as I was stopped at a red light on the way to run an errand when I got rear-ended pretty by a large truck whose driver said he missed the brake. As I wasn’t expecting the hit, my head instantly swung forward violently upon impact and as I later found out, this brief moment had left me with a severe case of whiplash for the long run. Though insurance money covered the immediate medical visit, my quality of life had begun to decrease dramatically as I always found my neck to be in pain. At night especially, even as I was cozying up under the covers, going to sleep was a challenge as I could not find a position on conventional pillows that I found was supportive enough to my neck and still let the rest of my head get comfortable.
Even though I have only been using the intelliBED’s pillow for a few short weeks, I can honestly say that I feel like I am undoing the damage that the past few years of struggling to sleep have done to my health and happiness. IntelliBED’s pillows are great for neck support as the pillows both contour to my neck for an individualized fit and help support it all through the night. Though some pillows that accomplish this tend to be on the hard and uncomfortable side, the combination of the memory foam and almost gel like fluid inside the intelliBED pillow allow you to easily sink away your worries of the day as you end up passing out in only a matter of seconds.
If this product can make such a difference in the life of someone who has suffered from whiplash for a good chunk of time, then I am positive that it can make an impact in the quality of your life.
