Everyone knows how seriously I take my sleep. Dealing with Chronic Migraines and auto-immune diseases means sleep is a crucial part of my day to day maintenance for optimal health. Enter Alea Sleep into my every day routine.
If you’ve been following my instagram you will have seen my various stories, and posts where I’ve been talking about my experience this past month with my Serenity Queen Mattress that I received from Alea Sleep.
I have been needing a new mattress for quite a while now, and when my boyfriend and I decided to move in together it made sense to get a new mattress so we start fresh. After researching a lot I came to the decision to get our new mattress from Alea Sleep. Let me tell you just a few reasons why:
- They are Canadian! From the design, creation, and production it is all done in Toronto, ON — supporting local is something I am extremely involved in. If I can support locally I absolutely chose to do so, every single time. Not only that, but it means much quicker shipping. I kid you not, 3 business days and it was at my front door.
- Organic (hello!!) mattress. Need I say more? You all know me by now, and I am the Organic Nerd that tries to find every way to keep my life as pure, organic based, and eco-friendly as I possibly can. Seeing as how we spend so many hours sleeping, having an Organic mattress to sleep on is that much better for your body. Not as many chemicals or toxins to fight off while your body is resting. They are actually 100% Certified GOTS Organic!
- They actually donate mattresses to local community events, as well as those who are in need. 1 out of every 10 mattresses is donated to a cause that is close to Alea Sleep. Not many small businesses are able to give back so this shows so much community involvement from a smaller company.
- 101 sleep night trial to test it out. If you aren’t satisfied after 101 nights, simply return it for your full money back.
Just a few of the reasons why I am so in love with this company and the mattress. I have to say I have always been an incredibly light sleeper. This mattress is really good because of the memory foam, so I don’t feel my significant other moving out of the bed, which in turn is really allowing me to have some really deep sleeps. This is a huge chance from before when literally the wind blowing would wake me up.
The setup was very simple and easy as you can see in the video. They are 10.5′ thick, the box is heavy enough that two of us had to lift it, but it was so simple. It took no more than 10 minutes to be fully ready to use. We tried a few nights with no box spring, but for us the box spring offered more support which is what we were needing in the end. Alea does sell a box spring and a matching frame also if you are needing the full set up!
Overall I (but really I mean we!) are beyond happy with this bed. It fits all our needs and is definitely improving our sleep noticeably. I am optimistic it will continue to provide us with the back support we need all the while staying extremely comfortable!
