7 Benefits of Owning a Cooling Mattress



The importance of mattresses often gets overlooked. After all, the average person spends about half of his lifetime in bed. Plus, sleep is important for your everyday health. When you think about how much you use your mattress, everything about it matters — from firmness or softness, right down to the temperature.

It may sound strange if you cover yourself with a blanket to be warmer when you sleep, but often, a cooler mattress is better. There are many benefits to having a cooling mattress; here are some to consider if you’re thinking about investing in a new bed soon. 

1.  Pain Relief

Cooling mattresses are made of gel that cradles your body and creates custom support for you. That lets the support you receive when reclining on the bed become balanced, and you don’t sink completely into your mattress.

On a cooling mattress, your shoulders, back, knees and hips, are perfectly supported and enveloped in coolness. There’s no pressure on any of them, and your weight is evenly distributed. This helps any pain you usually feel to diminish, even if just for the duration of your slumber.

And isn’t one of the treatments for an ache or pain an ice pack? Heat packs are advised too, which you can do during the day, but your mattress has the ice pack part down all night long.

2. Personal Comfort

Like was just mentioned, the support and cushioning cooling mattresses provide is custom. It’s like memory foam, cradling the body and then bouncing back once you get up. Gel works the same way. So, no matter how many strange positions you sleep in, your mattress won’t form lasting impressions, making future sleep lumpy and uncomfortable. 

3. No More Night Sweats

Whether you actually suffer from night sweats or just get sweaty in summer, a cooling mattress can rid you of this burden. A cooling mattress is not only cool to the touch, but it regulates your body’s temperature. 

Plus, it absorbs moisture, so if you do end up sweating, you won’t wake up drenched. And the excess heat your body is holding will vanish, instead of staying trapped between you and the mattress like with traditional mattresses.

Not only that, but the heat-erasing nature of the cooling mattress lets you stay asleep for longer. You wake up when you’re uncomfortable, and heat is uncomfortable. With a cooling mattress, you can take night sweats out of the equation. 

4. They Resist Motion

Cooling mattresses feature thick padding that cradles you, so you don’t move when other people on the mattress do — even if it’s your kids jumping up and down right beside you. So even though you probably won’t (and shouldn’t) let your kids jump on the bed, this is perfect for people with restless partners who keep you awake, twisting and turning and jostling you all night long.

5. Environmentally Friendly and Safe

Most cooling mattresses are made of organic materials that are eco-friendly. Meanwhile, who knows what could be in your regular mattress? Mattresses are typically made in factories, where chemicals and materials run rampant. Plus, your mattress may contain synthetic materials made of who knows what. 

So not only are you saving the environment from a horrible shock when you finally throw away your mattress, you’re saving yourself from exposure to potentially harmful substances every night for years. 

6. Helps with Alignment

When you’re on your feet, gravity is pressing down, head to feet. This can knock your spine’s alignment out of whack, even if you don’t feel back pain. But when you lay down, gravity is forcing your whole body down, all of it at once in the same direction. And as you know, cooling mattresses distribute this weight evenly and relieve pain.

Cooling mattresses not only can relieve pain, but they can prevent it and help with your alignment. There’s nothing to kick your spine out of its perfect pose when you lay down on a cooling mattress.

7. Durability

Mattresses aren’t cheap. So why would you want one that’s going to tear or develop a permanent indentation from your body? With a cooling mattress, you’ll be buying a quality product that will last. For quality cooling mattresses at reasonable prices, check out what Muse Sleep has to offer.

Cooling mattresses have thick gel beads, which help the mattress stay in shape for years — worry free. This means you won’t have to replace it frequently, making it a practical investment, despite the higher-than-average cost of a cooling mattress.

Lorna Brown, a British and World Professional Champion and World and Olympic coach, has been a principal performer in numerous ice shows across the globe, including John Curry’s Ice Dancing on Broadway and Theatre of Skating at the London Palladium.

Mesh WiFi: Boost Your Internet Connection Throughout the Entire Home




Have you ever struggled with slow internet speeds, buffering videos, or dead zones in your home? If so, you’re not alone. Traditional WiFi networks often need help to provide consistent coverage throughout a home, especially in larger or multi-story houses. That’s where Mesh WiFi comes in. 

From the birth of the commercial internet in the 1990s to 93% of Americans using it today, the internet has changed a lot. However, our Wifi seems to have stayed the same since we got access to it. But Mesh Wifi is here to change that. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what Mesh WiFi is, how it works, and whether it might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Understanding The Basics of Wifi

Wifi is a technology that allows you to connect to the internet wirelessly. According to Britannica, it uses radio waves to transmit data between your devices and your router, which is connected to your modem. However, traditional WiFi routers have some limitations that can impact your internet connection. The first limitation is the Wifi “dead zones” we keep finding around the house.

Additionally, obstacles like walls and interference from neighboring networks can further impact signal quality. Traditional routers also require manual updates and can be difficult to set up for optimal performance. These limitations can be frustrating for users, which is why newer technologies like Mesh WiFi have emerged to provide better coverage, improved signal strength, and advanced features.

How Mesh WiFi Can Improve Your Internet Connection

Now, how exactly can Mesh WiFi improve your internet connection? Well, one of the main advantages of Mesh WiFi is that it can eliminate the dead zones that often plague traditional WiFi networks. Instead of relying on a single router to provide coverage, Mesh WiFi systems use multiple interconnected nodes to create a seamless network that can extend throughout your entire home. 

This means that you can finally say goodbye to weak signals, dropped connections, and frustrating buffering delays. On top of that, companies like Wow Way are actively working to bring the price of mesh Wifi down to make it more affordable. With Mesh WiFi, you’ll be able to enjoy fast and reliable internet speeds in every room of your house, no matter how far away you are from the router.

The Advantages of a Mesh WiFi System for Your Home

Mesh WiFi can provide seamless coverage throughout your entire house, eliminating dead zones and ensuring that you have a strong, reliable signal no matter where you are. But more importantly, Mesh WiFi systems often include advanced features like automatic updates, parental controls, and device prioritization, making it easy to manage your home network and keep your family safe online. 

Plus, Mesh WiFi is highly flexible, allowing you to easily expand your network over time and add new devices as needed. All in all, a Mesh WiFi system can provide a fast, secure, and easy-to-manage home networking solution that’s perfect for modern households.

Selecting the Best Mesh Wifi System for Your Needs

With so many Mesh WiFi systems on the market, it can be tough to know which one is right for you. To make the selection process easier, consider your needs and budget. Do you have a large home or multiple floors that need coverage? Are you looking for advanced features like parental controls or device prioritization? Do you want to expand your network over time? 

You should also read reviews and do your research to find out which systems have the best reputation for reliability, security, and performance. PC World recommends that you also check the coverage of individual mesh nodes when you make a selection. Better coverage from each of them would mean you need fewer nodes in your house, keeping them from turning into an eyesore. 

Understanding The Cost of Mesh WiFi 

Mesh WiFi systems offer many advantages over traditional routers, but they do come with a higher price tag. A good Mesh WiFi system can cost anywhere from $100 to $500, which may be a significant investment for some households. However, it’s important to consider the long-term benefits of Mesh WiFi when weighing the costs. 

With a Mesh WiFi system, you can enjoy seamless coverage throughout your home, faster speeds, and advanced features like parental controls and device prioritization. Plus, Mesh WiFi systems are designed to be easy to set up and maintain, so you can avoid the frustration of dealing with dead zones and dropped connections. 

Another piece of good news is that according to the New York Times, most people who want mesh WiFi can buy a useful system for around $200. But ultimately, the decision to invest in a Mesh WiFi system will depend on your specific needs and budget, but for many households, the benefits can make it a worthwhile investment.

Mesh WiFi is a newer technology that can greatly improve the internet experience in your home. While it may require a higher initial investment than traditional routers, the long-term benefits can make it a worthwhile investment. With the increasing demand for reliable and fast internet, Mesh WiFi is likely to become even more popular in the coming years.
