1) Achy and tired muscles
2) Sore neck and shoulders
3) Tight hips and hamstrings
4) Low-quality sleep
As most active people, I’ve always known that sleep is important in muscle and bone recovery. A good night’s sleep does allow the body to recover and regenerate the necessary muscle and bone cells that were affected during an exercise session. However, I never realised how critical a good mattress and pillow play in the role of a good night’s sleep.
Having been active since I was a child, the movement has always been a part of my life. From dancing to playing in nationals for lacrosse, I was constantly working out in one form or another. As I started getting older, and my training increased in number and intensity, I noticed that I took longer to recover and would wake up with leg and hip cramps in the middle of the night or have a really tight lower back and hamstring when I got off my be, resulting in me either not training and competing at my optimum or opening me up to more muscular injuries. I knew I needed to have an intervention or I would be in pain for a long part of my life.
After doing some research and serendipity, I came across the Harmony mattress at SwissAire. All the salesperson had to say was pressure-releasing and ergonomic and I was sold. Why? Because my previous mattress was a pocketed spring coiled that didn’t support my body, let alone the muscles that needed to be released from its soreness. It even had a dent in the middle that caused my left rib muscles (I’m a side-sleeper) to be constantly contracted! That explains why my left turns were always compromised!
To aid in my side-sleeping and to provide better support to my neck and shoulder, I also used the 5-in-1 Ergonomic Pillow. All in all, with these 2 products, I now wake up rested, rejuvenated and most importantly, not in pain and am able to run out of the room pain-free.
