Here’s Why You’ve Been Missing Out On Great Sleep: 6 Benefits Of A Hybrid Mattress

by Alana Hosn 9 days ago in product review

Chances are, your old mattress is the reason you’re waking up feeling more tired than you should.

When it comes to sleep, I don’t mess around. My bedroom is my sanctuary and getting into bed after a long day is something I look forward to probably more than I should admit. But it wasn’t always like that. I spent so many years of my life being a “bad sleeper” and never really knowing why. I blamed my lack of good sleep on my night owl tendencies and my so-called insomnia. In my early 20s, I’d sometimes lie awake until 3 or 4 in the morning because my mind and my body could never sync up and allow me to get comfortable enough to sleep. I knew my lack of quality sleep wasn’t good for my health and I tried almost everything on the market to improve my sleep. From different supplements, sleep gummies, essential oils, weighted blankets, sleep masks and even white noise machines, I literally tried it all. Little did I know, I wasn’t addressing the root of the issue — my mattress.

I had been sleeping on the same spring mattress for almost 10 years and didn’t even realize switching out your mattress was a thing. And if you’re counting in your head right now trying to figure out when you bought your mattress, then it’s probably time to think about making an upgrade. Chances are, your old mattress is the reason you’re tossing and turning all night and waking up feeling more tired than you should.

Time for an Upgrade

A quick google search will tell you that after 7 years, it’s probably a good time to switch out your old mattress. Other signs may be sagging or visible dips in the mattress, stains or squeaks. But perhaps the most important sign is health related. A bad mattress can leave you waking up with major body aches or discomfort. Since making the upgrade to my Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress, I’m finally waking up feeling more energized and refreshed and without body aches.

Health is Wealth

I strongly believe that you can’t put a price tag on health. But when it comes to “being healthy”, we are quick to associate health with how good our diet is or how often we are exercising. Sleep, on the other hand, is most likely overlooked. Quality sleep is essential for our bodies and impacts how we operate on a daily basis, from brain function, to mood, muscle repair, immune system and even weight. While we are at rest, our bodies go into repair mode and when we skip out on high quality sleep, we’re skipping out on a long list of health benefits.

The Key to Better Sleep

It all starts with your mattress, and not just any old mattress, but a high quality mattress like the new Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress. This mattress has been a game changer for me when it comes to getting the restful sleep I deserve after a long day. The Lull Luxe gives you the pressure relief and comfort of a memory foam mattress while providing the support of an innerspring mattress. It’s not too firm and not too soft, it’s just right. And just like the name says, you’re in for the most luxurious sleep of your life. Think five-star luxury hotel bed in the comfort of your home!

No More Aches & Pains

As someone who works behind a computer and on my smartphone the majority of the day, you can only imagine how my back feels after the work day. I’m also an outdoor runner, so my body goes through a lot. Even after a full 7-8 hours of sleep, I used to wake up feeling stiff and sore and just wanting to stay in bed all day which, of course, is not normal. We should all be able to wake up every morning feeling refreshed, rested and ready to take on the day. Switching to the Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress has changed the way I feel when I wake up in the morning. Instead of clinging to my sheets dreading the tiring day ahead, I now wake up feeling energized and like those 7 hours in bed actually counted for something.

The Right Choice

After a few months of sleeping on the Lull Luxe Hybrid, I can’t believe how good I’m feeling...like brag-to-your-friends kind of good. Another selling point for me was Lull’s special cooling gel technology. I’m someone who runs hot when I sleep, so I’m happy I finally found a mattress that doesn’t leave me feeling like I’m in a sauna in the middle of the night. The advanced cooling gel technology means the mattress has a cooler sleep surface and the bed design promotes airflow to help regulate body temperature. Say goodbye to waking up in a sweat and frantically throwing all the blankets and pillows off the bed!

If you’re like me, then getting a mattress that is aligned with your health values is probably important to you too. The Lull Luxe Hybrid is CertiPUR-US Certified, which means it’s made with non-toxic and non-carcinogenic materials and meets the highest standards for safety and durability. So go ahead and check “safe” off your future mattress dream list too!

It’s So Easy

Speaking of a dream mattress checklist, I couldn’t be happier with how simplified and easy the process was from ordering my mattress, to the delivery, and setting it up. As a girl who lives alone, I couldn’t imagine how stressed I’d be shopping for a mattress the good old-fashioned way. It makes me anxious just thinking about figuring out how to fit a mattress through my super narrow bedroom hallway. Lucky for me, I found Lull, which made creating my bedroom paradise that much easier. My Lull Luxe shipped straight to my door in a box which was easy enough to haul into my bedroom, unbox, and set up on my bed frame all by myself. If you are still a little skeptical, there's no need to worry because Lull offers a 365-night trial. I loved the ease of knowing that I can sleep on my Luxe Hybrid for a full year to make sure that it is right for me! If you don’t love it, you can return it for a full refund — easy peasy!

If getting your health in check is something you’re interested in, investing in a new mattress might be the life upgrade you’ve been waiting for. Within a week of sleeping on my new Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress, I knew there was no going back for me. I love waking up feeling rested and refreshed and never want to settle for anything less again!
