A good nights sleep with Leesa

Sleep – a necessity we all need in order to survive. 

Be it a nap, siesta or snooze – sleep and the quality of the sleep we get can have a huge impact on how we live our lives.

For me sleep = creativity. As someone who works from home most of the time I find the majority of my creative ideas come to me at that moment in between switching off and falling to sleep. When my phone has been turned over and my laptop turned off, my mind is free to wonder.

For many years my sleep suffered, as did my creativity and general well being. I was constantly tired and lethargic and it seemed no matter how much sleep I got, be it 8 hours, 10 hours, whatever, I still somehow never felt rested. After reading into it a bit more, I soon discovered the solution was clear – quality over quantity. It wasn’t about getting more hours, it was about the hours I was getting being good, sound, solid sleep. Instead it was jolted, broken up with tosses and turns and never being able to get comfy. You see like any 20 something moving to a new city, when I moved to London I found a flat share, moved in and kept the included furniture – wardrobe, desk, bed and subsequently the mattress too. It wasn’t until I changed my mattress that I finally found the good nights sleep I’d been looking for! After researching a variety of mattresses and reading literally hundreds of reviews and blogs, I decided on Leesa and now (thankfully) I wake up each morning feeling energised and ready to take on the day!

Why Leesa? Well, as I said I did a whole heap of research and really did my homework before making a decision. For me Leesa caught my attention for a number of reasons. Namely, the delivery process, the social impact programme and of course the reported high quality mattress.

Leesa and the Leesa company ethos are truly innovative. The entire process from ordering to delivery are completely fuss free. Firstly, it literally took less than 2 minutes to order and secondly, it is delivered within days (hoorah) and delivered straight to your door so no handy man with a van required (double hoorah.) I felt like a fully fledged adult getting so excited about the prospect of a new mattress and luckily the excitement paid off, as I’m totally smitten! Although I should point out that if I wasn’t, Leesa gives you a ‘100-night risk-free trial’ so if you are not completely happy with it, they will organise for the mattress to be collected and donated to a charitable organisation, whilst giving you a full refund.When my mattress arrived, I thought something had gone wrong, a double mattress can not be that small? It arrived in a neat cardboard box an upon opening I realised the mattress had been rolled into a compact cylinder making it SO much easier to move, especially up the stairs. When I unrolled the mattress began to immediately expand, bravo on some seriously clever vacuum-packing skills Leesa… you almost had me fooled!

When I finally got to try my new mattress out for the first time I cried a sigh of relief, I was so happy. It actually worked, but don’t just take my word for it, turns out there’s some full on science behind it all too!

  • The 5cm top layer allows air-flow for a cooler night’s sleep. The Avena® foam also provides enough bounce for freedom of movement.
  • The 5cm memory foam layer provides the body contouring and pressure relief you’ve come to expect from memory foam. This is what stops my back from being even the slightest bit achy.
  • The 15cm dense core support foam adds strength, durability and structure to support sleepers of all sizes, without feeling too firm on top.

Now on to the nitty gritty – how does it actual feel to me…

simply put, heavenly. I realise this seems somewhat over-enthusiastic but honestly, I’ve been sleeping on my new Leesa mattress for just over 3 months now and it really has had such an impact, both on my general day to day life and massively on my creativity. For me, my day usually starts with answering emails in bed, drafting up a blog post or editing pictures. I feel happy to wake up that bit earlier to have the luxury to work in bed that little longer.

The final thing I feel I must mention as this again makes me feel so passionate about Leesa as a brand, is their social impact programme. Leesa donates one mattress for every ten sold and also plants a tree for every mattress sold on top of that. So every time you buy a mattress you are helping towards charitable cause and the environment, bravo Leesa, bravo!

Without a shadow of a doubt Leesa has transformed the way I sleep and in turn has transformed the way I work. It’s brand I know I will stay loyal too. The product is perfect and at a really great price point for the quality. From the website to the customer service and follow up, each and every step was simple and professional. Leesa has got it right start to finish.
