There has been a little undercurrent of cooler weather the past couple of days and it’s putting me in a fall cleaning mood. Nothing boosts my spirits more than relief from the heat. I spent my weekend getting prepared to tackle everything I want to in the next few weeks and I didn’t forget that changing my pillows was as important as anything else I plan to do. I bought some cheap pillows when I moved into my new apartment and they are flat as boards. After spending months bedbound trying to recover from a compression fracture in my spine, with pillows that would not fluff up, even a little bit, I went on a pillow hunt and check out what I found.
Sleep is important any day of the week but especially when our body is trying to heal itself. Check out this post on how the body heals when you sleep. I fully believe that not sleeping well is the reason I’m healing at a slower rate than we thought I should heal. When I went to the doctor, he said it should take 6 to 8 weeks before the bone would heal itself. We’ve moved on past that and even though I’m able to get up and about for short periods of time, the pain isn’t a whole lot better than it was. I refuse to take pain medication unless I’m at a crossroads of either I take some or I go to the hospital to get my pain under control. That could be one reason why my pain persists, but I really believe it’s because I’ve not gotten the sleep that my body needs.
I’ve slept on my new GX Pillows for the past 5 nights and I was able to drive a short distance on Saturday because I felt more rested and when I’m not tired and anxious, my pain is always out of control (from failed back surgery and now my new compression fracture). I tend to believe that because the pillows have allowed me to get a good nights sleep, I’m on my way to healing and feeling better. Even Peanut loves the pillows, lol. If you’re looking for a unique gift idea, here it is. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love these pillows for any occasion, Christmas included.
As you start planning to do your own fall cleaning, or even if you’re just in need of new hypoallergenic pillows, be sure to check out the original suspension pillows at gxpillows.com. A good nights sleep is really important no matter what your circumstances are.
How many of you have started your own fall cleaning?
