TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Review And The Benefits Of A Good Night's Sleep

This is an AD for TEMPUR® 

We all know how much we feel refreshed after a good night's sleep. The kids (and the husband!) seem much more manageable, and we can cope better with the ups and downs of daily life. There is so much documented evidence of the health benefits of sleep that it's one of most people's goals - to get a good night's sleep.

Of course, that isn't always possible. It can be hard to fall off to sleep, you need the right environment to sleep comfortably and then if you wake up, sometimes your thoughts can keep you awake. Everything seems just that little more worrying at 3am. I know that since I have become older, I seem to wake up in the night and my thoughts start racing and I find it hard to get back to sleep.

The benefits of a good night's sleep

The benefits of a good night's sleep are well documented and the NHS website links lack of sleep over the long term to poor concentration and low mood and also more serious health conditions like obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Sleep and memory survey

One thing I didn't realise about the lack of sleep you can get, is the link between this and poor memory. Recently TEMPUR® decided to look into this further and conducted a sleep and memory survey in the UK.

TEMPUR® are a brand with an important scientific background. TEMPUR® was first created by NASA in the 1970s to cushion astronauts during lift-off as they journeyed into space. Over the past four decades, they have spent time and money into research and now produce mattresses, pillows, beds and accessories that evenly distributes weight and pressure as you sleep.

The aim of the survey conducted by TEMPUR® was to explore the link between the effects of a poor night's sleep on memory. For the survey, 5000
 respondents aged over 18 were questioned. These are some of the results.


  • Over half of those surveyed believe that the lack of/poor sleep makes their memory worse.
  • Women are most likely to be affected by poor memory after a poor night’s sleep (59%).
  • Those who rated their sleep as excellent or good reported an average of 7 hours of sleep per night.
  • Those who rated their sleep quality as poor reported an average of 5 and a half hour's sleep per night – this group were more likely to rate their memory as below average.
They also looked at mattresses and the effect on sleep, with 4 out of 5 people surveyed believed the right mattress is essential for a good night's sleep. The most well-known mattress in the survey was TEMPUR® with 80% of people saying that they had heard of the brand. As you can see anecdotally people do feel a lack of sleep affects their memory. 

TEMPUR® Comfort Cloud Pillow Review

To help me get a good night's sleep TEMPUR®
 recently sent me the TEMPUR® Comfort Pillow Cloud - a pillow made of thousands of micro cushions. 


The pillow is slightly different on both sides and feels soft to the touch and yet it is also very firm.





I was interested to see how it would support me when sleeping. 

When I tried the pillow out that night, I found it a little heavier than expected however not unduly so, but that also meant it stayed in place throughout the night. It seems to mould to your head as you lie on it, with the unique memory foam, and was incredibly supportive. You seem to sink into the pillow which I really liked, providing great support.


The pillow has a soft cushioning on both sides, and both sides are slightly different - it's up to you which side you sleep on. The cover is removable, washable and breathable too. 

Of course, there are other things that can affect your sleep like taking regular exercise to make you tired, staying away from technology and the blue light it emits that increases alertness an hour before you sleep and avoiding caffeine. However, having a comfortable sleep position and the feeling of being supported in your bed can all help sleep so I can see this TEMPUR® Comfort Cloud Pillow being beneficial to many. It really appeared to support my head and neck.




TEMPUR® are so confident you will like the TEMPUR® Comfort Cloud Pillow that they will let you try one for 30 days in your home. If you don't think the pillow gives you the head and neck support you need then you can have your money back. That's confidence for you! So you don't have anything to lose.

What other things can I do?

As well as using a supportive mattress and pillows there are other things you can do to get a good night's sleep. Turn off the phone and laptop at least an hour before you go to bed, take a relaxing warm bath, have a milky drink or chamomile tea and try and wind down.  I find listening to relaxing music and natural audio sounds like waves gently crashing or pattering rain helps me go to sleep. Check out relaxing music and nature sounds like this on YouTube, iTunes or Spotify.

Let me know, have you tried a TEMPUR® mattress or pillow? How does a lack of sleep affect you? Do you have any tricks to get a good night sleep?

    That looks like a really good pillow! I don't have difficulty sleeping, but my husband has it bad. I think some new pillows would help him get a more restful sleep. I love that they offer a money back guarantee. I will have to check out these Tempur pillows soon.

  9. I do struggle with my sleep routine. I seem to go through phases when I am able to get to sleep without too much trouble and then other times when I am laying there for ages.

    1. I know how you feel. Try listening to some relaxing music and making sure you have a walk at least once a day. I used to have a milky drink when I was younger and it still helps me now get off to sleep.

  24. 'Over half of those surveyed believe that the lack of/poor sleep makes their memory worse.' So true! It is only in recent years that I have come to understand the negative impact that insomnia has had on my cognitive abilities. Good mattress and pillows are absolutely essential!
