In this season of my life sleep has not come easy. I am often plagued with sleep deprivation because I just can’t turn my mind off. Due to a handful of added life stresses, my mind not turning off and having the bad practice of “working” in bed, my lack of sleep was starting to catch up with me.
Many top medical sites state that stress is the number one cause of sleep deprivation. And sometimes you just can’t help the stresses in life. Often times circumstances are out of my control and I just have to deal with them as they come to me. But that is just it. I have to deal with the stress and how I deal with the stress will dictate a reaction of other things like appetite and sleep.
If I handle stress correctly and keep with a routine that I know is better for my body, mind, and spirit then I will sleep better and not cause the painful cycle of sleep deprivation to continue.
And that’s when the Snoozecube bed comes in.
I had been sleeping on a mattress that had springs and over time those springs had worn out in the places I laid the most. This caused my body to have more stress on it in places that were already injured and in need of recovery.
My shoulder for instance. I have woken up timeless times after a very physical day at work with my shoulder in agonizing pain. And I assumed this pain was due to the fact that I slept on it wrong or in one position too long.
But after doing some research and partnering up with the Snoozecube bed I found out that my bed was the culprit. It was actually hurting my body more when I slept, not helping it rest and recover.
So here I am sore muscles, sleep deprivation trying to run a family with five children and multiple jobs on 5 or fewer hours of restless, painful sleep.
This was not a good combination.
But after sleeping on the Snoozecube bed for the past 30 nights I have seen a drastic difference in how my body feels and how my mind functions.
I have worked just as much physically and not woken up once with my aching shoulder. Plus I have made it a new rule for me to not work in bed. Cuz if I do my brain doesn’t shut off correctly. So even though my desk is 8 steps away it has helped me to settle into sleep easier. This along with the non-spring memory foam mattress has helped me get to sleep quicker and stay asleep longer.
Here are the 3 things that stood out to me about the mattress that I wasn’t getting from my old spring mattress.
*Bonus!! The cover is washable. Like I said, I have five kids. Sometimes that makes things messy and washing my mattress cover is going to be handy. I already had to wash it once and the zipper that goes around the brand covered mattress made it easier for execution. I was able to take off and put it back on my king size bed all by myself. The covers are replaceable as well. Just call customer service.
Partnering up with this company has been dream come true. No pun intended. This newly launched mattress company has given me a great night sleep and helped my body recover from many Mom-aches and pains.
Advice from a work-from-home mom of five...If you're in the market for a new mattress, get your snoozecube on!

Let's get real.
Life keeps rolling on here and I am holding on by the edges these days.
Next Tuesday is the next San Antonio Housewives Girls Night Out at Silo Elevated and I am finalizing vendors, inviting businesses and outlining table set-ups at the venue. So much work but when the day comes it is always a blast and I am thankful for all the new people i get to meet and build business with.
I recently added Fibi & Clo to my work load which is exciting and exhausting all at the same time. Visit my boutique for prices and email me if you would like to join my team.

"Think like a Queen. A Queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness" -Oprah Winfrey
This is my mantra on life and how I live. I am not scared to fail because that motivates me more if I do. I learn to live one day at a time and will never be too old for it.
I enjoy spending time with boyfriend whether it's traveling, reading a book, trying new eateries or playing with my dog. I find myself as easy going as it gets.
