A good night’s sleep can make the difference between thinking clearly or not, and goes a long way in boosting energy levels. I have a memory foam mattress that is wonderful for my old bones and the aches and pains that come with age – but it absorbs and reflects the warmth of my body making for a bed that is too warm.
I have a quilt (great way to store out of season quilts) and a poly mattress pad between the memory foam and the sheets, but even this 2 inch layer of padding leaves me still too warm at night. Recently I purchased the Cool Shield Mattress Protector and pillow shield – WOW! What a difference!
The Cool Shield Mattress Protector is made of breathable, hypoallergenic, cotton terry with a water proof protector. I was a little concerned about the plastic as I don’t like noise when I sleep, but that has not been a problem. I don’t know if it is fluid proof, but it sure has made a difference in my sleep. I’m not tossing and turning nearly as much trying to get cool.
Getting older for me has meant that I am warm all the time. I like the house around 66 degrees. For Bob, he can’t seem to stay warm enough and wants the house around 75 degrees – we compromise around 70 degrees. He puts on a sweater and I’m fanning myself. But he too has rested better since we got the Cool Shield.
Now, I’m not getting paid for this endorsement. And yes I paid full price for the Cool Shield off of Amazon. I do think it is important that we share what works and doesn’t work for us health wise and that is why I’m writing this and why I asked for help this last Sunday with Restless Leg Syndrome. Answers are still coming in and I will share those with you all soon.
If you decide to check it out, please click through to Amazon on the side bar icon as Rourke gets a few cents for anything you buy to help support this site he so graciously provides for us and YOU don’t pay any more for it.
Please share with us what YOUR solutions have been for common maladies. My email is bcfossillady at gmail.com
