My Three Favorite Things

Coffee and Sleep and My Pillow
I have a new pillow from Costco that is really helping me sleep and dream better than I ever have.

I have always heard keeping your head cool and your feet warm is the secret of a great night's sleep and I found this 1925 article that proves it.

What kind of pillow, you ask?
It's a cooling gel memory foam pillow in a standard shape, not a contour. It has one side that feels like bubble wrap filled with a cooling gel. The other side is plain. It took me a while to get used to it. At first my neck felt stiff because my head was elevated higher off the mattress than my old pillows. But I felt more rested so I knew it was a good pillow and I went back to Costco and purchased a second one. Now I have a matched set and can search for cool spots across my entire bed. I am a hot sleeper and have always tossed and turned flipping my pillow to find cool spots. Now I can't wait to see how these pillows perform in the summer. I keep my room cold at night in the winter so it stands to reason that the gel away from my head will stay cool as the part I'm resting on absorbs my body heat. I just automatically gravitate to cooler spots without really waking up. I'll do another report in the heat of the summer. Fingers crossed.
My shoulders are feeling better too because the new sleeping height is reducing stress on them. Hope you like this "unpaid" product review. See you later. I have to attend a home inspection later today. xo

My kids and grands all swear by that Costco pillow, I haven't tried it yet. I do that pillow flippy thing all night long, especially in the summer. I might have to break down and buy one.

The Queen Vee - Victoria, When I bought my second one, it was on special for $5.00 off. That is a real bargain. My Costco usually has them in stock so I didn't have to pay $10.00 for shipping because they are unusually heavy. Every other outlet I have checked sells them for MUCH more (Bed, Bath, and Beyond - QVC, etc). I'm glad to hear everyone else in your family already knows about what some are calling Chillows. Have a great Valentine's Day. xo, Rosemary
