Restful Night’s Sleep for Couples
Do you and your spouse have a hard time at night finding the right position, an agreeable temperature, the right level of noise (or no noise)? I can help you come to an agreement with at least one of these problems! You see, my husband and I have now been married for 18 years. What do you and your spouse have the hardest time agreeing on when it comes to sleeping arrangements? It is very important to obtain a restful night’s sleep for your health and your attitude!
ChiliPad Helps Couples Have a Restful Night’s Sleep
The 18 Year Long Dilemma
I know of some couples who have been married much longer than 18 years and some who have been married for way less. One common problem that I have heard many of my friends talk about is agreeing on a temperature that is perfect for sleeping. In 18 years, that is one topic that we NEVER agreed on. My husband likes (regardless if it is summer or winter) to climb into bed with the sheets having ice crystals on them! OK, maybe not literally but he wants the room and the bed to be cold. NOT ME!!! I like the temperature of the room to be cold (even in the winter) but I like to have about 10 blankets piled on top of me. I can never get warm enough.
We were just laughing the other night because getting comfortable is often like a game of Tetris. We try to snuggle and his arm has to be placed just the right way around me, my hair has to be away from his face, I need to lay on this side, etc. When we finally get all of that situated and one of us is just not completely comfortable so it starts all over again. Then, we get comfortable and he is too hot or I am too cold so we have to adjust the blankets, only to then have to resituate the way we were positioned. It is quite comical.
Getting a restful night’s sleep is hard to accomplish, for me, anyway. I have never been diagnosed but my mom has a connective tissue disease that causes severe pains in her joints. Over the years, I have begun having a lot of the same symptoms. A heating pad is her best friend and has become one of mine. There are times where I ache so much that I can’t sleep at night. I wind up getting up and getting the heating pad to lay on. I often fall asleep that way which is SO dangerous! Dry heat that a heating pad offers is not very good for you anyways but when you are desperate, you are willing to do about anything. At least I am!
Let Me Introduce You to the ChiliPad Cube
I had never heard of the ChiliPad Cube before. You may not have either. Let me tell you, it has been a game changer!! It is a mattress pad that controls the temperature of your bed with a mattress topper that circulates water throughout. Don’t let the name fool you. Even though it is called the ChiliPad, it does more than just cool. It also heats!!! No more heating pad needed. Plus, since it uses water, it is a MUCH safer and more effective way of providing heat for my achy joints.
Here is how the ChiliPad works
- Place the ChiliPad Mattress Topper on your mattress with a waterproof mattress pad.
- Connect the tubes that go from the mattress topper to the ChiliPad Cube.
- Pour water inside the ChiliPad and turn on.
- Continue to add water (the amount will depend on what size bed you have) as it empties the ChiliPad Cube automatically and goes through the tubes into the mattress topper.
- Once the correct amount of water is inside the mattress topper, place the plug back on the ChiliPad Cube.
- Set the desired temperature for each side of the bed.
- Apply a fitted sheet and bedding.
- Enjoy a restful night’s sleep
The ChiliPad Cube will maintain the temperature of choice (from 55 degrees to 110 degrees) for up to 10 hours at a time. The ChiliPad Cube comes with a separate cube for each side of the bed. AHHH, heaven! I can now have my side hot and he can have his side cold. We can still snuggle because I am still enough on my side and he is enough on his side to be able to enjoy our own desired temperature. Now that we have the temperatures set, we can both decide on using ONE blanket. We are still trying to figure out the secret to getting snuggled up each night without having to make it an Olympic event but I am not sure anyone or anything can help us with that.
Thank you, ChiliPad Cube for making life easier and helping settle an 18-year long dilemma between my husband and myself. With everything we have had going on in our lives, I am so thankful for a restful night’s sleep!
