Hey all, I’ve been looking around , well virtually, for a new mattress as ours is at least 9 years old. There are five specific things that I am looking for.
1 – Supportive for both head and back. 2 – comfort, I don’t want it too soft or too hard. 3 – Length of the mattress, I need at least King size as I’m 5:8 and my hubby is 6:4. 4 – Tough enough to support a plus sized babe and chappy. 5 – Quality of sleep.
For myself personally I need a mattress that is going to support my lower back. I struggle to get a good night sleep as I usually wake up with pain in my lower back and shoulders. For my hubby as you know he has a chronic pain condition called CRPS and also Multiple Myeloma Cancer and is recovering from a lung cancer operation which was a secondary cancer from his original bowel cancer. He spends a lot of time in bed resting so needs something that is going to keep its shape, stay supportive and help him to get some good healing rest. Plus we are both big and tall – hubby is 6:4 and I’m tallish at 5:8 , so we so need something firm and supportive and very importantly, long lasting.
I’m quite happy to pay a bit more than an average mattress, any recommendations anyone?
I was talking to an old friend a few days ago and we got to talking about work/life balance and I said that I treat my life as if its full of mini projects, mini challenges. I’ve found as I’ve grown with my role and matured in age that I am able to better cope with stress. If you look at what is happening in the world today, there’ s definitely been a few of those challenges recently. I take each day at a time, yes I have my long term goals and want to be very successful in what I do, but sometimes you just need to slow your pace down a bit and truly understand whats’ important to you. A great actor once said “life is a box of chocolates”, it’s a great metaphor that basically says you don’t know what life is going to throw at you, its not really something that you can control. For instance did we all know we’d be sat in our houses for several months or that we’d be walking around in masks being controlled by a virus, nope I certainly didn’t. Did you? So I say take your life step day by day, do things you love to do, never second guess your choices. Take care of your family and work as hard as you can and remember life balance is everything. Life truly is for the living and you only get one chance at it as Brad Mondo says “Don’t forget to Live your second Life”
