I must admit I’m not really one for exercise and can make up any excuse not to move off the sofa! Recently though I had to be weighed and I nearly ran away crying. One of the reasons I have not exercised that much has been due to hip bursitis. Over the past 18 months I have had two steroid injections, seen a fair few physiotherapists and even resorted to acupuncture. The acupuncture was so uncomfortable and painful that I gave that up after a few sessions. I must have spent hundreds of dollars on getting nowhere.
Coming back from Tasmania and realising that I had been having such good nights sleep and also doing lots of walking, I had an epiphany while walking with my good friend Lisa. It was her suggestion actually, “a new mattress is what you need”.
So a couple of weeks ago I took my stubborn hubby, who insisted that there was nothing wrong with our mattress, to Bedshed. There was a 50% sale on, there usually is. After getting some expert advice from a 78yr old saleslady who made us lie down and try them all out, we finally made a purchase.
Since then I have been having the best nights sleep in such a long while and it’s actual bliss to sink into this dream of a mattress. No longer am I woken up every night feeling like I am on the seven seas in a storm when hubby gets into bed. Who knew? I’ve also been able to take up zumba again and go out for a couple of nights dancing.
