It’s OK to Share Your Nectar Mattress With Your Pets
The history of sleep is full of different bedroom arrangements — and we aren’t just talking about foam for bed mattresses technology. In ancient egypt (and in some cases later) intergenerational sleep was commonplace. It wasn’t too surprising to have grandma or grandpa share the bedroom with you while you all caught some Z’s. The private sleep chamber only became popular during the Victorian era, when social norms said that we should all sleep in our own bed (make mine a Nectar with plenty of foam for bed mattresses). This attitude also affected how we viewed pets sleeping in the bedroom with us. If you ask my parents common wisdom has always been to keep pets away from your sleep space. Now new studies show it might not be the blunder we’ve been brought up to believe. So grab your pooch or cat, park them on your Nectar foam for bed mattresses, and read up on some good news!
More Common Than you Think
Half of all pet owners allow their pet to sleep in the same bed as them. Many scientists have focused on the negative aspects of this in the past. They list poor health, impaired functioning, the development of problematic behavior, and even sexual dysfunction as possible outcomes. But a new study by Bradley Smith of Central Queensland University in Australia shows that this is an overly simplistic view of cohabitation.
Benefits Outweigh the Cat Cost
Having a loved one or animal in bed can have psychological and physiological benefits. A dog or cat can be a reassuring presence, lulling you into sleep quickly and keeping you there for the duration of the night. The added warmth of another body in bed can also work wonders if you’re feeling sleep deprived. So there you have it. If you want to treat your pet to the best mattress available, then a Nectar is the obvious choice. Nectar’s top layer of quilted memory foam stimulates airflow beneath the body, while the Tencel fabric wicks away heat. That’s great news for pooches and people alike!
