2012 is such a fantastic summer of sport! From the UEFA European Finals to the Olympics there is certainly sure to be something to suit everyone. But with so much going on, and hopefully with the fantastic summer weather too, there will probably be some matches and events you'll miss seeing live and have to watch recorded. There is much debate about the best way to watch recorded TV but in my mind you can't beat a comfy bed, some great snacks and drinks, and maybe some good company!
Of course if you have an uncomfortable bed then watching TV in bed is not such a pleasurable experience! There are a few ways in which you can make your bed a more comfortable place to be. The first, and probably cheapest thing you can do is to make sure you have good pillows. Some people prefer soft pillows, such as feather pillows, but personally I love a memory foam pillow (but not a really hard one) as it really supports me when I sleep. I do like a squidgy pillow behind me when I'm sitting up in bed though.
Once you've got decent pillows then you can think about some patriotic bedlinen for watching the football or other sports. Maybe you could go for a red, white and blue theme, or perhaps even a Union Jack duvet cover or throw! And when you have made sure you are warm enough, maybe even think about a new bed or a new mattress.
If you are looking for a new mattress, the huge amount of options available can be a little overwhelming. However, companies such as Zleeps are there to help. With great customer service staff who know a lot about sleep and mattresses, they can help you choose the perfect mattress for sleeping and watching TV from. Memory foam mattresses are their speciality although they also have a pocket sprung memory foam range which are sprung mattresses with a memory foam layer. They have a range of mattresses available, to suit all budgets and you may be surprised how cheap memory foam mattresses now are.
If you don't want to shell out for a new mattress, then you could also consider one of Zleeps' range of memory foam mattress toppers. These are a layer of memory foam designed to go on top of your existing mattress. If you have a firm or slightly lumpy mattress then these will make it feel like a totally different mattress. If you order from Zleeps you will have not only excellent customer service, but also free UK delivery, a 10 year guarantee, and with some mattress orders, free memory foam pillows.
Whatever you do to make your bed a comfortable place to watch the UEFA European Finals from, don't forget to stay away from TVs and the internet until you watch your recorded matches as however comfortable your bed is, hearing the result before you see the match could just spoil the whole experience!
