As we drift from hotter than average temperatures to polar vortexes closing roads and cancelling rail services, you would be excused for tossing and turning at night, and struggling to find that elusive perfect sleeping temperature. If you’re like me, you understand the importance of a good night’s sleep for your overall health and well-being. You can read one of my sleep (inducing) blogs here. But, what if I told you there’s a solution that can make your nights cozier, more restful, and simply dreamy?
The Quest for the Perfect Night’s Sleep
Although I no longer suffer from sleep apnea, I still often wake up feeling unrefreshed after a restless and broken night of sleep. Often caused by Teresa stealing the duvet to envelope her body with warmth or by Teresa unloading a duvet onto me as she seeks a cooler sleep. It’s a sleep struggle that’s all too familiar for many couples, no doubt.
But what many people don’t realize is just how crucial body temperature is to our sleep quality. You see, your body temperature naturally drops as you drift off to sleep, and a too-warm or too-cold environment can disrupt this delicate balance, leaving you tossing and turning all night.
Discovering Simba (no, not THAT Simba)
For years, I’ve watched the five minute intros by my favourite YouTubers thanking their sponsor and I won’t lie. I have envied all of those receiving and reviewing a Simba mattress. Now, I’ll admit, I’m not a big enough blogger to receive a whole new bed for review (I wish!), but when Simba reached out to gift me a Simba Hybrid Duvet, I wasn’t going to sleep on this opportunity (I know, a dreadful pun).
However, while I was aware of their reputation, regular readers will appreciate that I rarely accept sponsored posts and only work with brands I respect and which now show a commitment to sustainable practices (limits the brands I work with but hey, I never was in it for the money). Before accepting their offer, I had a look at their website and I was pleasantly surprised. Simba recognises that many of us are losing sleep over the direction we are heading, and they have taken several steps to make them not only a brand known for its commitment to innovation and quality, but one committed to sustainability and ethical business. They use recycled and sustainable materials, their deliveries are 100% carbon neutral, and have signed up to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 and they extend their ethics to their contractors, suppliers, and to their business partners. So yes, I was absolutely going to agree to work with them. As the founder of One Sky Collective I do want to highlight sustainable and ethical brands.
The Simba Hybrid Duvet
So, back to the Simba Hybrid Duvet. What makes it so special?. The Simba Hybrid Duvet is designed with sleep science in mind. It’s not your ordinary duvet; it’s a sleep-enhancing, temperature cooling and relationship saving wonder duvet.
First and foremost, it’s incredibly soft and cozy (although the “cool” side is less so). It’s divided into stitched squares, thus ensuring a consistent distribution of padding and for idiots like me, it uses colours and labels to indicate which side is which. This is important as the Simba Hybrid Duvet is designed to suit your varying body temperature. Thanks to the innovative Stratos® technology. If you get too hot during the night, Stratos® absorbs your body heat to cool you down. If you get too cold, it releases the heat to warm you up. It’s a duvet made for year round use and I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.
My Personal Experience
I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. How could a duvet really make that much of a difference? But from the first night I tried it, I was hooked. Or more importantly, my girlfriend was hooked. Instinctively, she opted (even in winter) for the cooler side facing down. I’m used to having no duvet so I wasn’t perturbed by the potential coolness, and instead loved the feel of wrapping it around me. It is only anecdotal and might be a placebo effect at work, but we both reported feeling more refreshed after a night’s sleep.
Why Body Temperature Matters.
You might know that I like to include some science in my blogs (possibly why my readership matches the number of brands I will work with) so let’s explain why our body temperature matters when sleeping. Your body temperature plays a significant role in your sleep cycle. As you prepare for slumber, your core temperature naturally drops, signaling to your body that it’s time to rest. If your sleep environment is too warm, it can delay how quickly you fall asleep, interfere with the maintenance process, shorten sleep latency, and promote non-rapid eye movement sleep. All of this leads to restless nights and poor sleep quality.
The Simba Hybrid Duvet addresses these issues head-on. Its advanced technology helps you control your sleep temperature, so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. It’s like having a personal climate control system for your bed.
The Connection Between Sleep and Health
Now, you might be wondering, “Why is quality sleep so important?” Well, the benefits go beyond just feeling refreshed in the morning. Quality sleep is crucial for your overall health and well-being. It’s during those precious hours of slumber that your body repairs itself, boosts your immune system, and even supports mental clarity.
By investing in a duvet like the SimbaHybrid Duvet, you’re not just getting a good night’s sleep – you’re investing in your long-term health. It’s a small change that can make a big difference in how you feel and function every day.
And yes, I know you might have concerns about the price. Quality often comes at a cost, but you can currently save 25% on the Simba Hybrid Duvet.
Sleep Well, Live Well
As someone revered (yes, revered) for my sloth-like appreciation for sleep, I understand the value of a good night’s rest. It’s not just about getting through the night; it’s about waking up each morning feeling your best. I’ve been so impressed by the Simba Hybrid Duvet that I am seriously considering replacing my mattress. Yes, I know it’s ME supposed to be influencing YOU to buy, but having seen what a new duvet can accomplish I am imagining a life in bed. And that reminds me. Not that I am condoning it, but for those working from home and enjoying the odd afternoon nap, SIMBA have produced a blog, the art of napping, explaining what it’s possibly something we ALL should be doing. Honest, boss, it’s backed by science.
