Good sleep is one thing that eludes people these days. Blame it on the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic. We are worried about a lot of things – our health, our finances, our jobs and being separated from loved ones.
Being homebound most of the time, it’s important that we prepare our room to be a haven and oasis of calm. After all, this is where we retreat, rest and destress after a long day. Because of Work From Home set-ups imposed in some offices, some people now even work in bed in their pajamas.
For me, there are three essential components of a room that we should invest in. One is for ample storage of our clothes, shoes and other stuff. The goal is to hide all the clutter. Second is the area of room accessories. The basic things we need are lamps, curtains and maybe wall decor or scented candles.
The last and most important thing in a room is the bed, of course. It should give us good support. We should be able to wake up with a smile in it. Some people focus on aesthetics like having an eye-catching headboard. I do think the most important element is the mattress we sleep on because it makes or break our sleeping experience.
Fortunately, I was introduced to Emma Original Mattress. It’s a European brand and my Emma queen size mattress is the best thing that’s happened to me in the past month. I noticed that I’ve been sleeping much longer (to a fault). It’s a good thing that I don’t work on the 9 to 5 grind or I’ll be late a lot of times, lol.

The arrival of Emma
With much guilt, I’ve done a lot of online shopping in this lockdown but I wasn’t really prepared for the biggest box to arrive in our condo’s doorstep.
I can’t believe a queen size mattress fit in the box. That’s right. You can use Emma on the day it arrives. Just unpack and unwrap. The plastic covering took some time to be snipped off but once it was done, everything was ready to go.
On the outside, the Emma mattress looks elegant with its dark grey side cover. It has non-slip parts to prevent it from sliding around. The top cover is in immaculate white but can be easily removed to be washed.
What Emma Sleep is all about
There’s a science behind the overall construction of the Emma mattress, I am told. This is the reason why the brand has been given awards and already sold more than a million units. The mattress itself is made up of three layers of eco-friendly and breathable natural foam. It’s so designed to adapt to the outlines of the human body. The needed counter-pressure is provided to especially support the lower back and make moving around easy, even when we are asleep.
“Wonderfully bouncy”is the adjective used to describe Emma and it’s true. The right medium firmness makes it very cozy for sleeping and relaxing. Ever since I took comfort in my Emma mattress, I got rid of my backache – the kind you get from sleeping in hard, uncomfortable beds.
Plus, it’s really a different feeling when you sleep on something that’s of premium quality. Emma was designed in Germany which makes me feel like I fully rested on the Mercedes or Bimmer of beds. Did you know that we spend a third of our lifetime sleeping? Am fully convinced now that we really should save up and put our money on a good mattress, more than any “must-buy”on our list.
Thankfully, it’s so easy to buy an Emma Original Mattress because we can do so online. If you don’t trust shopping virtually for high-ticket items, Emma Sleep offers the perfect solution : you can try your purchased mattress free for 100 nights! If you think it’s not a fit for you, you can send it back free of charge and get a full refund. Delivery and returns are free too. Warranty is for 10 years on paper, but actually it should last last a lifetime.
What’s not to love? My ‘relationsleep’ with Emma has just begun 🙂
