The Must-Have Mattress for Your Health This Spring

Those aches and pains aren't just a part of life... you owe yourself better. 

As humans, we spend more than a third of our lives sleeping, but I theorize that we spend even more of that time in bed. That experience should be as painless as possible, by which I mean I think being in bed should not be painful. Basically, the mattress you inherited from a family member when they upgraded—how many years ago?—really isn’t cutting it.

You deserve to own a mattress that doesn’t come with the body contour of someone else who slept on it for 10 years before you owned it. You deserve to sleep on a mattress with another person that doesn’t force you into a cave at the dead center.

This spring, as you clean up the rest of your life in anticipation of a fresh start, consider cleaning out your old mattress in the process. I know it seems like it’s easy for me to just tell you to throw out your old mattress and to buy a new one, but where will you find the time and where do you even begin?

Traditional mattress stores come with sleazy salesmen looking to sell you on something from the second you through the day and this can be incredibly overwhelming. If you’re lucky enough to find a mattress you like, you still have to figure out how to get it delivered—often at an extra cost—and if you live anywhere that isn’t the first floor, getting a mattress upstairs should be considered an olympic sport.

But it’s 2019. The future has arrived and you can order a mattress online, try it out risk-free for up to a year and still have the benefit of free shipping and returns. Even better? They come in a box that is easier than ever to get upstairs or through narrow doorways. Nectar Sleep was one of the first mattresses of this kind to enter the scene and it’s still one of the best-reviewed options available.

Even better, for a limited time, Nectar Sleep is offering $125 off + 2 free pillows with the order of any one of their mattresses. Should that be outside of your budget, you can finance your new mattress for less than $60/a month.

If you’re prone to overheating while you sleep like I am, Nectar’s top layer of quilted memory foam is a godsend to you. The grooves created by the quality allow airflow beneath your body while Tencel fabric—a fabric even more breathable than cotton—redirects your body heat and wicks away moisture so you are never waking up saturated in your own sweat.

A lot of mattresses specify what kind of sleepers they’re best for, but Nectar takes everyone into account with every mattress. The memory foam construction provides firm support for any position while the pillow top guarantees the perfect contour to your body’s curves without leaving a permanent mattress indentation.

But by far the absolute best part of any mail order mattress is the beauty of shipping. Every Nectar Sleep mattress ships in a convenient box with handles for getting in any tight spaces. If that’s not enough, you can own a Nectar Mattress for up to a full year and still return it for a full refund. Need more incentive? You are covered under warranty for as long as you own the mattress. Available in all sizes ranging from Twin to California Queen.
