As many of you may know I am a FitFluential Ambassador and I am honored to be a part of this fantastic company so when I received the opportunity to test out a Technogel Pillow I jumped at the chance!
FitFluential is all about balance in life which is something I think we all seek. To promote balance FitFluential focuses on four primary areas: Eat, Sleep, Move, Enjoy.
Today I am going to a talk about sleep and how Technogel has improved mine!!!
Sleep allows our bodies to recover and rejuvenate itself and helps us to function properly while awake. Lack of sleep can lead to decreased immune function, heart disease, obesity, lack of concentration, depression and a myriad of other health problems. Ideally we should get 7-8 hours of sleep per night to be adequately rested but most of us get closer to 4-5 hours which is just not enough.
The sleep cycle consists of 4 stages which we move between throughout the night. Stage 3 and Stage 4 (REM sleep) are the deepest and most important parts of the sleep cycle. It takes about anywhere form 70-90 minutes for you to get into the REM portion of the sleep cycle so even if you are in bed for 8 hours if you are waking up constantly throughout the night by noise, babies, restlessness, etc., you are not getting enough rest.
Some sleeping problems are hard to avoid, like babies…..if you have baby you are likely to be sleep deprived for awhile and this issue will hopefully get better with time. Other sleep issues like noise and comfort can be fixed by modifying your environment. A comfortable environment, a comfortable bed, comfortable sheets and a comfortable pillow can all play a role on how well you rest at night. You have to make your environment as conducive to sleep as possible so you can get a good night’s sleep.
Personally I have many issues sleeping, the first issue being the 3 year old that still sleeps in my bed. I also have trouble staying asleep so my sleep cycle is constantly being interrupted leaving me feeling fatigued during the day. I am working on both these issues especially getting the 3 year old out of my bed so any suggestions in this area are greatly appreciated.
I received my Technogel pillow a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that this is the most comfortable pillow I have ever slept on in my life! For as long as I can remember I have needed 2-3 pillows just to get myself comfortable enough in bed to get a good night’s sleep, which lately hasn’t been that good. Since receiving my Technogel Contour pillow I have only need this pillow to sleep comfortably and miraculously I have been sleeping through the night even with the 3 year old in my bed. I now wake up well rested and less fatigued!
This pillow has been particularly popular in my house, so popular in fact that I have had to fight with the rest of my family just to be able to sleep with it every night. Every time I turn around someone new is stealing my pillow:
It took awhile but I have finally made them all understand that this is my pillow and they cannot have it…..ever!
What makes the Technogel pillow so special?
The gel in the pillow has 3 main properties:
- “3-D Deformation”: It should perfectly support your head and neck.
- “Cooling effect”, it should keep your head fresh (remove the winter cover to enhance the feel”.
- “Odorless and hypoallergenic” it should not smell and make you sneeze or itch.
This pillow met all my expectations and more!! I especially loved how much it supported my head and neck and it’s cooling effect definitely enhanced my sleep!!! Now I want a Technogel mattress for my bed, maybe Chris will surprise me with one<<—Hint, Hint!
