Midnight Mint Cookie Cocktail + Dr. Greene’s Ideal Mattress

This post was sponsored by Sleep Outside the Box.  All opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Today I’m excited for two reasons.  The first is this delicious evening cocktail combining two of my favorite flavor combinations.  It just doesn’t get any better than a mint and chocolate cocktail before bed.  The second reason is that I received a new mattress.

I want to experience comfort and all the other benefits of a great night of sleep right away.  What I love about Dr. Greene’s Ideal Mattress is that it’s the only mattress that specializes in zoned support.  Zoned support means more pressure relief on hips and shoulders, and more support on the lower back.

I am a side sleeper and my old mattresses were not designed to support me.  They would often sag making me feel like I was in a hammock.  With my last mattress, I would constantly wake up in pain and roll from side to side.

The materials in Dr. Greene’s Ideal Mattress are reactive and strong.  The bed is designed to give support where it’s needed the most.  Dr. Greene’s Ideal Mattress is made from layers of foam stacked strategically to support your weight and conform to the body.  The foams help decrease motion transfer from my partner and provide an embracing feel.  The foam relieves pressure points while remaining durable over time which is a big plus in my book!

What I especially love about this mattress is that I never had to leave the house and visit a mattress store to purchase it.  We moved into a new house and I just did not have the time to shop.  Just like others, I usually shop online.  I find it convenient and practical.  I work a full-time job and have other responsibilities that take up a good portion of my day.

After just one night on this mattress, I feel well rested.  No more pain in my hips and shoulders.  Bye-Bye old mattress!

This weekend, we have friends visiting and I cannot wait to show them!
