“Cooler than the flipside of my pillow…”

Alright, you guys love the ChiliPad. And there’s more Chili-Awesomeness to share…

Have you ever heard the phrase “you’re cooler than the flip side of my pillow”? Well, Chili Technology has torn that phrase apart recently with our pillows.

Now, BOTH sides are cool like the flip side because it’s a pillow with cooling gel cells. Also, our dreamy Cloud pillows are made with special coconut memory foam that’s designed with an open-cell structure that doesn’t hold as much heat.

If you’re a hot-headed individual, this pillow is for you!

“Can’t sleep without it!”

Despite being just a few months away from my 20th birthday, I still have a “blankie.” More specifically, it’s a quilt made by a great aunt, or something like that. It’s soft and it’s getting all these little rips in it, but I still love it. I sleep like a baby with it.

A picture of my quilt and I in Hawaii!

I take it with me whenever I won’t be sleeping in my own bed. I dragged it all the way from my home in NC to the Philippines, on the exact other side of the world, for a 7 week excursion. It spent a month in Hawaii with me a couple weeks ago… A week in Vegas… A cruise to the Bahamas… It’s gone to Myrtle Beach with me multiple times. Tennessee. Virginia. The San Francisco Airport. And, of course, it’s been with me all freshman year at High Point University. Needless to say, it’s well traveled. It doesn’t matter how “foreign” the bed is, I sleep just the same with my quilt.

A lot of people feel this way about the ChiliPad. They can always depend on a good night’s sleep when it’s working its magic. But don’t let me relay the news, here’s what they say:

I never want this to break down. I would not know how to sleep without it. My poodle says he loves it too. His side is so cool.. – Julie R.

This is the best thing I ever bought. It is used every night and is priceless. I didn’t know how much better I sleep till I forgot to turn it on one night and woke up in the middle of the night burning. – Kyle L.

My half of the bed is in the shop. I miss my chilipad!!!!! – Mary W.

I woke up middle of the night sweating and realized I forgot to turn it on! I wondered if it was making that much of a difference and apparently it was! – Linda S.

Some die-hard owners/fans/evangelists of the ChiliPad even travel with it. That’s how much they depend on a ChiliPad for that perfect night’s sleep.

Science is Backing “Beauty Sleep”

Beauty sleep is officially a concept in the science world! Researchers in Sweden conducted a survey where volunteers were photographed after 8 hours of sleep, then again after being awake for 31 hours.

The results:

“Sleep deprived people are perceived as less attractive.”

To back this up, get a mental image of yourself at its hottest. Did you look sleepy? Of course you didn’t! Sleep is obviously necessary for function, and it’s also necessary for aesthetic purposes.

Now ask yourself: do you get enough sleep at night? If your dark circles, red eyes, and yawning mouth answer “no,” then maybe it’s about time you try a ChiliPad. Sleeping at your ideal temperature will help you get a deep, restorative sleep that will have you waking up the next morning feeling good with a mega-watt smile like your favorite Disney character.

…Or this Bull Dog.

In conjunction with the last blog…

In conjunction with the last blog, where I took catnaps on cold floors when I didn’t feel the best, this blog is about what happens when I get chills.

Who takes hot showers when they feel cold? This girl does. And I know a few of you do too. It doesn’t matter if it’s the third shower of your day, the purpose isn’t to get clean, it’s to get warm.

And the feeling is delicious.

Even if you’re not the type who showers for warmth, who has experienced this: That cold winter morning when you just rolled out of bed and tripped your sleepy, cold self into the shower. And once you feel that steamy water trickle down your back, you’re content to just stand there all morning.

The ChiliPad is the exact same thing! Except that wonderful warm water isn’t showering down upon you, it’s flowing right under you through silicone tubes.

It doesn’t matter if you keep it cool or like it hot, the ChiliPad hits the spot 😉

Catnaps on Cold Floors

I love tiled floors. Yes, they’re beautiful. Yes, they’re also easy to clean. But I like them because they make a great place to snooze when you’re feeling sick. The cold feeling that chills your feet in the wintertime is unfortunate, but when you’re under the weather, it’s great to cuddle with!

So here’s “Doctor” Melia’s remedy for when you don’t feel the best.

  • Stomachache? Take a Tums and lay on your stomach on the floor.
  • Headache? Take a Tylenol and make sure your temple is touching the floor.
  • Feeling dizzy? You should be on the floor anyway. Gravity is not your friend right now.
  • Fever? This one’s obvious.

Lying out on my bathroom floor is also a great option after some time outside on a summer day. And Lord knows it’s been hot here in NC lately…

This is the same idea behind the ChiliPad. It does heat, but what most people like is the cooling feature. It can be just as lovely as catnaps on cold floors, but a million times more comfortable. It cools using circulating water, not electricity (or ceramic!). Aside from using it to sleep at night, it works wonders for when you don’t feel good.

Happy napping,

Melia

How to be “Sushied”

I have this thing I like to do with blankets. Since I’m Asian, I call it being “sushied.” It’s pretty straightforward to accomplish. I’ve included expert drawings for your understanding.

1) Layer a few blankets on the floor.

2) Lay on the edge and grab the side.

3) Roll over like a dog a few times.

The end product is this:

Sushied

You can see the resemblance right?

Or if you like Mexican food better, you can call it being “burritoed.”

I like it because it feels like a big, tight hug from cozy blankets. If you find yourself doing this at night to keep warm, you could try other options. Like sleeping near a turned-on, open-door oven. Or moving to Death Valley.

Or getting a ChiliPad 🙂 Because it heats and cools to your heart’s desire.

Happy Sushi-ing,

Melia
