Becoming a parent, a mom at that is quite challenging, yet has the best rewards that life can give. For a mother like me, I have to balance my time with my husband, the household, my business and most importantly, my child. It actually brings out the worst and the best of me. But I believe, I am an empowered woman – of strength, patience, perseverance and passion.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, Uratex held a special sparty for mommy bloggers like me at the Ronac Lifestyle Center, Magallanes. The event aims not only to raise awareness on how to achieve better sleep but to also give us a well-deserved break from our hectic schedules.
But before anything else, we got to tour the Uratex Premium Gallery and went to a mini-workshop wherein we learned more about the essence of good sleep.
And that’s me, trying out the Soft Escape Pillow, which is my pillow pick among the selection of pillows that Uratex have.
We got a chance to try the Xsensor Machine, an image – pressuring device that helps sleepers detect which mattress would best feet our needs. It is based on two points: 1) Pressure Relief (to minimize tossing and turning) and 2) Support Area (to indicate mattress comfortability).
I tried three types of beds – Viscoluxe, Ultima and Balance. I am a side sleeper, and the best mattress for me that the Xsensor Machine chose was the Ultima. But even without it, among the 3 mattresses that I tried, I still choose Ultima for I love anything soft. Here’s what my body looked like with the Xsensor Machine, those red marks shows that I am not comfortable with Viscoluxe and Balance and the all blue meant that I am very much comfortable with Ultima.

While relaxing on a Uratex Premium Mattress and enjoying the comforts of my beautiful 5-minute room, I watched a short informational video by Dr. Keith Aguilera, ENT/Sleep Specialist from the Philippine Society of Sleep Medicine on tips for a healthy sleep.
