Nectar Premier Mattress Review 2022: It’s The Closest to Perfect I’ve Found

Nectar Premier Mattress Review 2022: It’s The Closest to Perfect I’ve Found

As a former child who slept through anything, including her mom running the vacuum, it feels like a betrayal that I grew up to be a fussy adult sleeper. Not only am I a light sleeper who wakes up whenever my partner gets out of bed, but I’m also quite the hot sleeper. And not in the, “You’re pretty when you sleep” way, just the straight-up damp way. I tried countless hacks, sleep products, and lifestyle changes to stop waking up sweaty (and getting stirred so frequently each night), but it turns out that all it took was the right mattress.I bought the original Nectar mattress when I moved to New York City in 2019. I liked how firm it was and that it supported my joints and muscles after tough workouts. It served me well until this year when I moved to a new apartment and the thought of moving the Nectar out of my former walk-up apartment was simply too daunting. I replaced it with the Nectar Premier mattress, hoping for the same comfort and support as the original with some temperature-regulating upgrades—and it far exceeded my expectations. Read on for my full Nectar Premier Mattress review.How I TestedI’ve been sleeping on the Nectar Premier mattress for four months, after receiving it and the Nectar Platform Bed in early August. I also have the Eight Sleep Pod Pro 2, a smart mattress cover that regulates temperature and offers health and sleep data. To make sure my review was not affected by the addition of the mattress cover, I removed it for the first three months of testing the Nectar Premier. To inform this review, I referenced SELF’s mattress buying guide, which is chock-full of recommendations by sleep experts. Ahead are all of my detailed thoughts about this mattress, which is, in a word, heavenly.Sleep QualityI’ve been sleeping quite well on the Nectar Premier. I do still wake up during the night, and I sometimes toss and turn, but that’s more a result of stress than the mattress itself. When I sleep with a partner, I wake up less often than in the past, thanks to the minimal motion transfer of this mattress, which is huge for me. (My partner’s mattress, alternatively, is like a moon bounce.) I wake up rested, but it is difficult for me to get out of bed and brave the day, mostly because it’s just so darn cozy.Temperature regulationOne of the first things I noticed when I unboxed this mattress and hauled it onto the platform bed? That it’s cool—cold, even—to the touch. This is key for my aforementioned sweaty sleeping. After snoozing on it, I found that even with a mattress protector and bed sheets, it still stays cool and dynamically responds to my temperature changes throughout the night. How Nectar achieves such magic is through the top two layers. The Breathable Cooling Cover, made with heat-absorbent polyethylene fibers, is what I felt during the initial set-up. The Gel-Infused Memory Foam layer uses what Nectar calls “ActiveCool HD” to keep the mattress the same cool temp all night long, even as my temperature changes.ComfortI’m a combination sleeper, I start by sleeping on my back and sometimes go side to side, and in the early morning I lay on my stomach. The Nectar Premier is quite comfortable for a combination sleeper—so much so that I press my alarm’s snooze button three times more than I did while sleeping on my last mattress (apologies to my employer). However, the original Nectar mattress is very firm, which I prefer. The Nectar Premier is softer, but not so soft that it’s bouncy which is ideal for side sleepers. This is the only moment I’ll dock a point from this mattress’s score: I wish it was the same firmness as the original. But firmness is based on preference, so this might not be a negative thing for you.SupportI find that this mattress gives the perfect amount of support for what I need. Though I’m young, I am a fitness instructor, which means I manage muscle soreness and occasional joint pain that mattresses either aggravate further or relieve. The Nectar Premier does the latter thanks to the three core layers: the three-inch Gel-Infused Memory Foam Layer with ActiveCool HD (contours to your body and reacts to changes in your body temperature), three-inch Dynamic Response Layer (responsive foam to promote spinal alignment), and seven-inch Stability Base Layer (foam gives structure to support upper layers). I wake up without back pain, regardless of my sleeping position.A Risk-Free Trial PeriodNectar offers a one-year home trial, plus a forever warranty. So if you don’t love the mattress after sleeping on it for a few months, you can get your money back no sweat (get it?).MaterialsThis is a memory foam mattress-in-a-box. You can opt to add springs for a Hybrid mattress (for an extra $200), which can offer more lift and support, durability, and edge support. Based on my needs and desires, I picked the original foam mattress, which is crafted with CetiPUR-US certified memory foam.The Bottom LineThe Nectar Premier mattress is an excellent, high-quality combination of support, comfort, and temperature regulation, and it’s the closest to perfect I’ve found. The bottom line is that when I went to my parent’s house for Thanksgiving, I left two days early so I could sleep on this mattress. And let’s be clear—they weren’t upset. They actually went and bought the mattress too.

Side sleepers, for example, stand to benefit from sleeping on a medium-firm mattress—it has the right amount of give to accommodate their knees, hips, and shoulders without sinking too much. Those who sleep on their stomachs or backs, on the other hand, will appreciate the support that comes with a firmer mattress. Additionally, you should look at a brand’s customer service and return policies to see whether you can enjoy a generous trial period, a warranty, or even free returns if you’re on the fence about your new bed.

Side sleepers, for example, stand to benefit from sleeping on a medium-firm mattress—it has the right amount of give to accommodate their knees, hips, and shoulders without sinking too much. Those who sleep on their stomachs or backs, on the other hand, will appreciate the support that comes with a firmer mattress. Additionally, you should look at a brand’s customer service and return policies to see whether you can enjoy a generous trial period, a warranty, or even free returns if you’re on the fence about your new bed.

Might I Suggest Faking a Holiday Nap?

Might I Suggest Faking a Holiday Nap?

There’s nothing like visiting your parents to help you assess the origins of your personality traits. From my mother, I received endless energy, obstinance, and curiosity—though I tragically did not receive superb hand-eye coordination. From my father, I received resourcefulness, endurance, and a love of dancing—and, also tragically, I did not receive his ability to nap. He naps every single day and wakes up refreshed and kind. Unfortunately, I inherited my mother’s relationship to napping, which is either a complete non-starter situation or conking out for three hours and waking as irritable as we are confused.Yet my mother and father do not know I can’t sleep at all in the middle of the day. In fact, they assume I’m quite the napper! That’s because every time I’ve visited for the holidays since I left for college, I regularly excuse myself for a daily afternoon lie-down. “Ugh, you’re so lucky you’re like Dad,” my sister will say. A neighbor who comes every Thanksgiving always makes the acorn-doesn’t-fall-far analogy.The acorn has lied though. I’m almost never napping. I don’t believe it started this way, though. Without being fully conscious of it—“not being fully conscious” being a major attraction of this premise—I’ve been practicing the fake nap for years.It started with a genuine aspiration to nap. Every time I returned home to my parents’ house—from college, first job, second job, zillionth job—for the holidays, I was very tired. I’d go into it thinking there would be a complete break from the sources of fatigue—no work! no social plans!—only to realize that there are, in fact, social plans galore. There are siblings and cousins and family friends and other people everywhere. And also can I help my parents clear out the basement? Of course I am a saint and very obliging, so I do really love to help. But home is not as peaceful and quiet as I always think it might be. My instinct for a break from all this hits me midday, so, I announce, “I’m going to take a quick nap.” The comfort of a childhood bed and washed-into-oblivion soft sheets call to me.And then, as soon as I enter the privacy of my chambers, I am re-energized by the peace of my own company. I’m not that sleepy at all anymore.I don’t enter into this ruse as a fib so much as a delusion: I really believe that I’m going to nap every time. I sometimes pretend to read. This is actually the biggest part of my attempts: I’ll grab a boring book from my parents or The Economist on purpose to lull me off. I forget that The Economist is actually very good and that Henry Miller writes hot sex books. There was also a line about napping in Tropic of Cancer (“a beautiful nap this afternoon that put velvet between my vertebrae”) that felt like an acknowledgment of my schemes and also very enviable.

Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress Review 2022: Adaptive Foam that Contours to Every Sleep Position

Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress Review 2022: Adaptive Foam that Contours to Every Sleep Position

My husband, Cameron, and I bought our old mattress back in 2018 when we were moving into our current apartment. We were getting married in roughly six months, so we chose a budget-friendly full-size mattress. Four years later and we were pretty tired of it, so when I got the chance to review the Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress, I jumped at the opportunity. In my advancing years (just a bit dramatic), I’ve been experiencing both achier and sweatier nights, so I was excited to try a high-quality mattress that could better carry me through my thirties. How I TestedWe started testing the Mint mattress around late August. I couldn’t wait to see if Tuft & Needle’s cooling model could handle my SSRI sweats in the nightmarish summer heat wave. After sleeping on the Mint for just over two wonderful months, and keeping SELF’s mattress review criteria in mind, it’s exceeded my expectations. Read on for my full Tuft & Needle Mint mattress review.Initial SetupSince I’m able to work from home most days, I’m always the one receiving packages large and small. When the massive mattress box arrived, I was relieved that they brought it up to our sixth-floor apartment, giving me one less thing to worry about (don’t worry, we have an elevator). Getting the box into our home was a challenge on its own, let alone unpacking the mattress tube and pushing it across the apartment. This involved a lot of creative motions and all of my body weight. They offer a $150 in-home setup and old mattress removal, which I did not take advantage of but would definitely be helpful for anyone, regardless of age or health. Moving the mattress and getting it on the bed frame would have been extremely difficult without an extra set of hands. Once the heavy lifting was done the directions were minimal and easy to follow. I was pleasantly surprised that, once opened, it only had to air out for a few minutes before it was ready to use. In the directions, they say it needs about two weeks to fully settle into its final form, and I had no issues with comfort or smell during that time. Sleep QualityI wouldn’t call myself the most restful sleeper: I wake up a lot throughout the night, and I’m not fully sure what it feels like to wake up refreshed. My sleep hasn’t magically fixed itself with the Mint mattress, but I have definitely noticed a huge improvement. I can feel my muscles relaxing when I lie down and find myself falling asleep just a little faster. My husband especially appreciates the lack of motion transfer since he’s a light sleeper and I tend to move around a lot. SupportCameron and I both love a firm mattress, so we were a little hesitant when it came to the soft topper. But our worries did not last long once we fell onto the bed immediately after letting it unfurl. The dense yet springy base supports the topper perfectly, letting you sink in just enough. It never really occurred to me that a mattress could be both soft and supportive. The reinforced edges were also something we underestimated. I often curl up at the edge of the bed right next to my nightstand, which was risky in our old bed, in which I easily slumped right off the side. I didn’t realize how much I missed being able to sit on the edge of the bed until making the switch.ComfortI have yet to pin down exactly what kind of sleeper I am (I’m kind of like a rotisserie chicken more than anything else.) I’d say I spend the most time sleeping on my side and switching to sleeping on my stomach a close second. Whatever form my body decides to take, I can feel myself relaxing into the mattress rather than fighting it. Tuft & Needle Mint is recommended best for back and side sleepers, but even on my stomach, I don’t get the searing lower back pain that I used to wake up with on my old mattress. It goes to show how much your mattress can affect your overall health.TemperatureSleep temperature has been something I never really thought about until I started taking antidepressants, which have been immensely helpful overall but have messed with my internal temperature a bit. During the summer I found myself waking up damp and irritable more often than not. The textured topper on the Mint breathes so much better than the flat foam of our old mattress, which means I’m not waking up repeatedly through the night to kick off my blanket.MaterialsThe website lists a lot of different materials that definitely sound fancy, but it really came down to the top layer for me. The Mint’s top layer boasts breathability and pressure relief thanks to its graphite, ceramic, and cooling gel material. My motions don’t transfer, and my pressure points feel relieved. One thing that stood out was the washable cover. Since the start of the pandemic, I’ve become more acutely aware of sleep hygiene, so the fact that I’ll be able to zip off the top of the mattress and throw it in the wash is truly magical. I’d say the only downside about the cover is the medium-gray color. It looks really sleek on its own, but if your light-colored sheets are on the thin side, they will look a little off. Risk-Free Sleep TrialPer Tuft & Needle’s return page, the mattress brand offers a 100-night sleep trial that starts on the date of delivery and allows you to return any products that aren’t a good fit for a full refund. You can rest assured you won’t be stuck with something you don’t love. If the product is unused and still in its original packaging, the brand sends a pre-paid shipping label or helps facilitate a free pickup, otherwise the mattress is donated.

Why the Daylight Saving Time Change Might Make You Feel Crappy All Week

Why the Daylight Saving Time Change Might Make You Feel Crappy All Week

If this week already feels like a major struggle, you can probably blame the time change. Even though most of us seem to hate it, we still have to deal with daylight saving time—but hopefully only for a bit longer. The Senate recently voted to do away with the biannual time shifts, but the bill, the Sunshine Protection Act, has a few more legislative hoops to jump through before it could possibly (fingers crossed) go into effect in 2023.The clocks fell back an hour on November 6, so we technically got an “extra” hour of sleep yesterday. Though the promise of more shut-eye is always welcome, that’s not what’s actually happening for many people. In fact, according to a 2013 paper published in Sleep Medicine Reviews, “the cumulative effect of five consecutive days of earlier rise times following the autumn change suggests a net loss of sleep across the week.” (More on this in a bit.)That means your body and mind may feel the not-so-great effects of the time change this entire week. Scientists have likened the health consequences of seasonal time shifts to jet lag. When you fly to a region with a different time zone, for example, you may feel exhausted, moody, and generally out of it for a few days until your body syncs up with the new time zone. The same idea applies to changing the clocks—in either direction.Falling back an hour may not feel quite as brutal as springing forward (when we all lose an hour of sleep), but the autumn time change abruptly messes with your circadian rhythm, or the internal clock that regulates your sleep-wake cycle.In general, your body functions at its best when you stick to a consistent schedule, and any change to your circadian rhythm can throw things off and cause somewhat of a ripple effect. “Whether you’re springing forward or backward an hour, that change ends up being significant,” Kyle Baird, DO, associate medical director at the University of Colorado Department of Psychiatry, tells SELF.Studies suggest that when your circadian rhythm is disrupted, your mental health may take a bit of a hit, and you’re also more likely to have memory problems, attention issues, and slower reaction times. Again, transitioning in and out of daylight saving time can also impact your sleep, and there’s no shortage of evidence showing that when your sleep suffers, you’re more likely to feel moody.It’s widely believed that falling back equals more time to rest, but most people don’t actually sleep more or better, per the Sleep Medicine Reviews paper. When the clocks fall back in autumn, you’re more likely to have trouble falling asleep at bedtime and may wake up randomly throughout the night. Many people also tend to wake up earlier, and it can take an average of four to five days to adjust to the time change. People who are short sleepers—meaning they typically get less than 7.5 hours of sleep a night—and “morning people” experience more issues catching up to the new clock than night owls, the researchers concluded. But even people who typically sleep more than 8.5 hours a night may sleep less than they usually do when the clocks fall back an hour.

The 38 Best Black Friday Mattress Deals in 2022: Shop Early Sales and Bedding Promotions

We can’t think of a higher-priority investment than sleep, which is why we’re already watching for the best early Black Friday mattress deals of the 2022 holiday shopping season.

Side sleepers, for example, stand to benefit from sleeping on a medium-firm mattress—it has the right amount of give to accommodate their knees, hips, and shoulders without sinking too much. Those who sleep on their stomachs or backs, on the other hand, will appreciate the support that comes with a firmer mattress. Additionally, you should look at a brand’s customer service and return policies to see whether you can enjoy a generous trial period, a warranty, or even free returns if you’re on the fence about your new bed.

My Scary Narcolepsy Symptoms Finally Led Me to a Diagnosis

My Scary Narcolepsy Symptoms Finally Led Me to a Diagnosis

Eventually, I just…kind of stopped sleeping. Most days, I felt like a zombie with little control over my emotions. I hoped that a higher dose of anxiety medication would make everything better. It didn’t.And then the sleep attacks started: That sudden, all-consuming exhaustion I felt at the Emmy-planning meeting became a regular occurrence. It started happening two to three times per week, forcing me to take a nap wherever I could—once in a dark mailroom and sometimes on the concrete floor between rows of seats in the Academy theater. So when I got yet another message from my doctor that everything was fine, I was apoplectic.I concede that I didn’t live the “healthiest” lifestyle. I worked too much. I didn’t get enough exercise. Perhaps I ate too much cheese. But I couldn’t for the life of me believe that my habits caused… tiny child ghosts. That night, fueled by Ben & Jerry’s and red wine, I spiraled down a Google rabbit hole. I ugly-cried my way to the ends of the internet as I desperately searched for symptoms of a sleep disorder, mainly zeroing in on sleep apnea, since that was really the only one I’d heard of.Two days later, I returned to my doctor, prepared to lay out an Annalise Keating-level defense that something else was happening to my body. She stopped me—mid-opening remarks—and told me we were beyond our collective knowledge on sleep. Finally, with her concession, I was referred to a sleep specialist.Three months later, with the appropriate testing, I was diagnosed with narcolepsy. Something I had never considered. The only familiarity I had with the disorder was from Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, in which the main character’s “date” falls asleep in her bowl of soup. The sleep specialist explained that narcolepsy doesn’t always look like the silly depictions we see on TV or in the movies. It often looks like my symptoms: excessive daytime sleepiness, fragmented sleep, hallucinations.The diagnosis was a relief—and marked a new journey. With narcolepsy you don’t get better; you get better at having narcolepsy. Four years later, I’m feeling pretty good. With some trial and error, my sleep specialist and I have found the right medication that curbs most of my symptoms—I take a daytime stimulant as well as a nighttime medication that helps me get deep sleep and stay asleep. (A silver lining of my diagnosis: It turns out that my anxiety issues stemmed from untreated narcolepsy, and have dissipated since I found the right treatment plan).I still get tired, but a daily 20-minute nap helps me feel more refreshed in the afternoon. Stress makes sleep attacks more likely, so I try to meditate every day. I’ve also gotten good at listening to my body: If fatigue starts to creep in, I won’t drive; if I’m struggling in the afternoons, I’ll try to schedule important meetings before lunch. I also noticed that sweets and simple carbohydrates make me sleepier during the day, so I typically save those for the evening. I still have bad days, but I have tools to get through them when they happen.
