Why Do I Need a Good Nights Sleep? & A Photo Contest

by Linette

I am a 2014 Nature’s Sleep ambassador. I was not compensated for this post, but I did receive an item for review. All opinions are my own.

I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately, and I’ve missed my family, my bed and my pillow! I recently got a new Nature’s Sleep Visco Memory Foam Mattress. I have to tell you since I got it I sleep like a baby! I used to have problems with my left shoulder and it’s been doing better since I got my new mattress! I also have a Nature’s Sleep Viscolite Memory Foam Pillow, which I also love! I so missed both when I was traveling earlier this month! I should have packed my pillow in my suitcase! I didn’t sleep well in the hotel because the pillow was not nearly as soft as my pillow at home.

I was so glad to be home this last week, and sleeping on my own bed and pillow! I was super excited to get a good nights sleep! I function so much better, and get so much more done when I get a good nights sleep! I’m traveling again in a few weeks and you can bet my pillow is going with me! If I could get my mattress back into that box it came in I’d haul it with me too! Hah!

Speaking of a good night’s sleep! Nature’s sleep is celebrating Photo Month in May with a fun contest! They are asking people to submit their photos on why they need a good nights sleep. You can check out the rules and enter the contest here: Nature’s Sleep Photo Contest.


I can’t believe how much photography has improved over just 10 or so years ago. I took these photos of my son and my husband getting some much needed sleep when my son was just a baby. These photos were taken with an old point and shoot film camera! I think I may have to enter one of them into the contest for nostalgia reasons! What do you think?

I love this pic! So peaceful!
best sleep ever

And this one with my husband getting some much needed rest along with my son. Why was I still up taking pictures? I should have been getting some rest too! My son was probably up later that night. A good nights sleep was hard to come by in those days! They took quite a few naps in that old orange chair. It was pretty comfortable, but not as comfortable as my Nature’s Sleep bed!

Sometimes I just can’t get my brain to shut off so I can get a good nights sleep – but when it does, I can usually manage to get in a few solid hours 🙂

What an adorable picture! Sleep is quite an important thing to everyone-I wish my body and brain knew that since they like to keep me up late at night. LOL

I’m such a light sleeper. I absolutely have to be comfortable to get any rest.

Anna critchley May 21, 2014 - 7:32 pm

These look an sound amazing! I want the pillow for sure.

Ellen Christian May 21, 2014 - 8:21 pm

I definitely don’t sleep as well as I should. I wake up all the time.

Pam May 21, 2014 - 8:37 pm

I need to try one of their pillows! Mine is not very comfy anymore.

Amy Desrosiers May 21, 2014 - 9:31 pm

I have this very same pillow and love it! I sleep with it every night!

Sandra May 21, 2014 - 9:33 pm

I need to try one of these pillows! We got a new bed and that made all the difference.

melanie r May 21, 2014 - 9:33 pm

Ohhh what is a good night sleep??? i sooo need this pillow…..

Emily @ Baby Dickey May 21, 2014 - 9:45 pm

Ha, a quiet space is what I need! There’s either a crying child or one running into our bed and kicking me all night. A wonderful mattress and pillow wouldn’t hurt either 😉 Fun contest!

Jennifer Soltys May 21, 2014 - 9:57 pm

Love the pictures!! I NEED sleep or nothing goes well. I am totally spoiled when it comes to sleep.

michelle May 21, 2014 - 10:36 pm

I am such a light sleeper. I wake up when some just walks in the room.

Dawn Lopez May 21, 2014 - 10:53 pm

Ahhh Nature’s Sleep sounds incredible. So strange, but my left shoulder has been hurting on and off too and I can’t figure out why. My bed is not nearly as comfy as yours, me thinks. I need to change that!

Carlee C May 21, 2014 - 11:29 pm

I get a good nights sleep on a comfy surface with white noise in the back ground. A steady hum of noise totally knocks me out.

Liz Mays May 21, 2014 - 11:39 pm

You’re brave to take your pillow with you. Last time I did that I left it in the hotel and practically cried. I can’t take that chance again!

Emily May 22, 2014 - 12:23 am

I’ve heard nothing but good things about that pillow… I need one!!

Aimee SMith May 22, 2014 - 12:55 am

I am a whole new woman and mommy after getting real good sleep! That pillow looks awesome!

Tammi @ My Organized Chaos May 22, 2014 - 7:56 am

My sleep has been getting more and more horrible, my back! I think it’s time we got a new mattress!

Kelsey Apley May 22, 2014 - 9:20 am

I love a good nights sleep, but they normally don’t happen every night. I always seem to wake up multiple times!

Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations May 22, 2014 - 11:18 am

I love it when I get a good night’s sleep!! 🙂 we all need it.

Amanda A May 22, 2014 - 2:05 pm

If I make myself go to bed by 9pm then I can get a greats night sleep!

Jen at Nature's Sleep August 20, 2014 - 7:10 pm

I can absolutely attest to needing great sleep after having a baby! Thanks for the great post!
