If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m slightly obsessed with a good nights sleep.
Yes, it’s a “thing” for me.
If I’m going to stop shopping, browsing Instagram, playing with my kids or catching up on my favorite TV shows…. JUST to sleep!…. then it better be AWESOME!
Don’t get me wrong, I LOOOOOVE sleep, but not all sleeping situations are created equal.
I’m NOT a couch sleeper.
I’m NOT a sit-up-and-doze-off sleeper.
And I’m definitely NOT a car, train, bus or plane sleeper. (we all know my issues with motion sickness. bleeehk!)
I don’t know how everyone else is, but when I nap or sleep, I need COMPLETE comfort. Cason is the same way – so we have both been on a journey the past almost 11 years of our married lives, to come up with the perfect “Better Rest MUST HAVES!”
#1 – The #1 Best Mattress
I won’t go into much detail on this one, because we’ve talked about it twice now, but a FABULOUS mattress is the bread and butter to the better bed experience. (say that 5 times fast…)
We ONLY sleep on Tuft & Needle mattresses now, and have WAY too many good nights sleeps not to!
Oh baby, these sheets are amazing, and YES, so different than your typical bed sheets that you can buy at the store. I swear, these luxurious sheets get softer and better with every wash; no joke.
There are a few different collections you can choose from on their site, but we went with the Second Skin sheets. They’re ridiculously soft, but NOT stuffy. Silky smooth, but not overly slippery and starchy feeling or clingy… if you know what I mean. They’re thick and really high quality.
I love that their sheets are tested and marketed by how they FEEL, and not by thread count. How soft, smooth, and airy they are, etc… Isn’t the way sheets FEEL the MOST important anyway!?
They’re a bit of an investment, compared to some other brands, but with their high quality, they will last a LONG time. It’s worth it people!!!
#4 – The Best Sound Machine
I don’t do birds, water or thunder storms. I just want a nice, low, peaceful, constant hum to drown out my husbands snoring, and all the other little noises that freak me the crap out in the night.
#5 – All the Good Smells!
For us, it’s a Gain thing. Nothing super expensive or fancy here folks. It just smells so good and fresh. I like the original sent, and I get a big ol’ one from Costco so it lasts me forever.
What are yours!? Are you as picky as we are? Do you have something you CAN’T live without when it comes to bedtime?
