Hey now, get your mind outta the gutter. We keep things PG around here.I have a new “sleeping buddy,” which has been helping me sleep like a baby. It’s my new pal, err, shall I say, pillow.
I’ve talked on here before about the importance of sleep. I’ve also confessed about how I don’t always get as much sleep as I should. But in the grand scheme of things, sleep is something that is equally important in healthy living as both nutrition and exercise are.
So when I was given the opportunity to try out this brand-spankin’ new pillow from a company called Technogel as part of my partnership with FitFluential, there was no question in my mind that I needed to try this out. Anything that helps me sleep better is always welcomed! The first thing I noticed about the pillow, before even opening the box was that this thing is HEAVY. Like, probably the heaviest pillow I’ve ever touched. The second thing I noticed was how well the pillow is constructed.
Technogel® uses something known as 3D Deformation which reacts to pressure much differently than foam; it molds itself to each individual’s structure and then deforms in three separate directions. This technology ensures that pressure is evenly distributed over the entire surface, generating a reduction in pressure peaks and an overall improvement in blood circulation. Cool, right? All of that right there totally sold Cody, too.
But really, this pillow is great, and there’s only one minor hiccup in it for me. I was sent the Deluxe pillow to try, which is great for those who sleep on their backs. I, however, tend to do about 95% of my sleeping on my side, so I’m wondering if I would have been better off with maybe their contour pillow? (especially since I’m used to propping up about two pillows to sleep with). But even still, I’ve adjusted to sleeping a bit more on my back which, in turn, has actually helped with my usual neck and shoulder soreness. Basically, it’s a win-win! And I’m still carting my pillow around with me all over the house…
Soooo comfy! Technogel pillows are a bit more pricey than most standard pillows you’d find in stores, with values in the $150 range, so it’s certainly an investment that should be considered. But I will tell you that the reduced muscle soreness and fantastic sleep I’ve been getting lately is well worth it!
I have some good news. There’s a very big chance that my favorite STSL readers may just get a chance to win their very own Technogel pillow. Be on the lookout for that soon. But for now, I’m pretty sure I smell the grill being fired up…time to go see what’s cookin’! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!!
