Shopping for a mattress is a fairly difficult task already, but add a pandemic and it's nearly impossible. I'm here to tell you about the one I recommend to everyone in my life, whether or not the advice is solicited.
The Tempur-Pedic LUXEBreeze mattress has drastically improved the way I sleep, in turn improving the way I work, eat, exercise, and live during quarantine. Many of us are doing more in our beds than we've had to before, from working to eating, especially if housemates are in the picture and privacy is desired. With all of the complications of the year and personal stresses we've all been through, it's safe to say that we're not doing our bodies any favors by sleeping on sub-par mattresses (in my case, an ancient New York City hand-me-down — the origins of which are still unclear).

Wellness begins with quality rest, and getting enough of it. The LUXEBreeze mattress from Tempur-Pedic's TempurBreeze collection cools up to eight degrees, meaning it won't retain heat the way other memory foam mattresses do. While eight degrees may only seem like a few, the difference in comfort and breathability is astounding.
TempurBreeze mattresses are designed in the Tempur-Pedic's own thermal laboratory and developed with attention to the micro-climate between the mattress, covers, and us. According to TempurPedic, "research suggests a cooler sleep environment helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer with less tossing and turning." So, whether you "run hot" or not, this mattress is designed to improve your quality of sleep by simply influencing the temperature.
The LUXEBreeze has four top layers of patented cooling material, starting with the pressure-relieving Ventilated Tempur-APR Material. From there, the Tempur-CM+ material allows heat and humidity that usually gets trapped between your mattress and sheets to be cycled out of the mattress. The PureCool± Technology layer absorbs any additional heat to enable better airflow and is topped with the SmartClimate Dual Cover System, an easily removable and machine-washable zip cover that is cool-to-the-touch.
The Tempur-Pedic LUXEBReeze mattress is an investment in your wellbeing during a time when sleep is one of the few things we can count on day-to-day.
