When I first saw the Bed of Nails pillow and mat, I wasn’t so sure about it. I’m the girl that’s terrified of needles and anything remotely resembling them. When I posted the picture below on instagram of me hanging out on the Bed of Nails, a friend commented that it didn’t look very comfortable. BUT it totally is! You can barely feel the “nails” (which are really tiny plastic spikes) and somehow after 10 minutes on the mat you get off feeling more relaxed and ready to deal with a cranky toddler who hasn’t napped all day.
Bed of Nails works similiar to acupuncture (I’ll stick with the bed), in that it helps the body release endorphins. It’s a happy pill rolled into a mat. The website also says that it may help with stress, headaches, constipation, tiredness and insomnia. Where was this mat when I was a walking zombie during those newborn days?! The website says that it might even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Sign me up!
Now that I’m on a health kick, I’m trying to find more natural ways to de-stress and get my energy up. I think this will be a great supplement to my workouts and healthy eating. If nothing else, it’s just a great excuse to take a 10 minute mommy timeout when I feel overwhelmed. I feel much more patient and ready to chase after an almost 2 year old when I do.
