at home with helix sleep

I've understood for a very long time now that a good nights sleep is very important, but investing in a good mattress was never something I've wanted to do. I guess the root of my hesitation was that it always seemed like a boring and awkward purchase. But after learning about Helix Sleep, a modern mattress company that develops smart solutions for a personalized, healthier sleep, I realized that it doesn't have to feel that way. Their team focuses on constructing mattresses based on body types and sleeping patterns––ultimately creating your very own sleep profile. They make it possible to literally build your own good night's sleep, and it's actually fun to do. 

As I was ordering our mattress on their site, they asked us a series of simple questions to build our specific mattress. Questions like your weight, height, and night-time body temperature. Since Andy's answers were different from mine, we opted for the split option making each side unique. 

 I really love that the personalized ordering process only takes about ten minutes and then ships for free. It also feels good to know that their manufacturers are based in Illinois, and all materials and components are 100% made in the USA. 



When ours arrived at our doorstep in less than a week, the entire mattress was compressed into a cool, octagon shaped box. And for an added bonus, a cutting tool was placed inside, making the opening process easy-peasy. 

The mattress has a modern, clean look made from quality latex, microcoils, and high-grade foam. It's pretty incredible how different each side of our mattress feels despite being tailored from the same materials.  





The mattress is also very lightweight, so no more heavy lifting when applying fresh sheets!

 I tested mine out for the first time over the weekend and I'm already won over. It usually takes me a long time to fall asleep at night; but I guess because my new mattress was specifically designed for me, I fell asleep fast and woke up the next morning way more refreshed than I've felt in a really long time. 

If you're looking to buy a new mattress, I highly recommend ordering from Helix Sleep. And just in case you don't love what they design for you, there's a guaranteed 100-day risk-free trial.
