Here at Zeo, we talk a lot about the importance of a comfortable sleep environment.
We’ve told you about the importance of having a dark bedroom.
We’ve told you about the importance of white noise.
It’s time to talk about Sheex.
No, that’s not a typo.
Sheex are specialized sheets that are designed to keep you comfortable while you sleep.
Utilizing Sleep Fit Technology™, Sheex boast many of the same attributes as athletic performance wear, such as breathability, moisture wicking capabilities, temperature control, and durability.
I’m no athlete so when I first heard about them, I was skeptical; I thought, “How in the world can high performance sheets help me sleep better?”
After all, I sleep just fine on my high-end, 300-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Then I started reading about how they wick away moisture and keep you cool.
Since I wake up sweating at least 3 or 4 times a week, I figured I’d give them a try.
After the first night, I was floored.
My ZQ jumped from a 52 - from the previous night - to a 66!
Granted, it may not seem that great, but my average is around 51.
The second night I used Sheex, I got a ZQ of 64.
The third night? A ZQ of 68.
On the fourth night, I came down with a case of strep throat, which I normally get once or twice a year. I had a constant fever of about 102.
After alternately sipping chicken broth and hot tea, I settled in between the Sheex and was out in no time.
I woke up several hours later, expecting to be soaked with sweat from the fever. I still had the fever but oddly enough, I was very comfortable.
I pretty much stayed in bed for two full days because, even though I was burning up, the Sheex kept me fairly comfortable.
A couple days later, I felt fine. That was the fastest I have ever recovered from strep throat.
Now, I’m not saying that it was just the Sheex that sped up my recovery, but they did keep me dry, cool, and comfortable while dealing with a nasty fever (not to mention that they’ve helped me improve my ZQ).
While on the topic of comfort, I would like to note that Sheex feel like a very heavy silk.
They are also softer and feel better than the most expensive fabrics I’ve ever felt, which is high praise coming from me; I have severe nerve damage in my feet - due to diabetes - so I can’t stand certain textures touching my feet.
To top it all off, the Sheex don’t have any crazy care instructions like I thought they would; I just have to wash them like any other sheets.
So am I a believer now?
I’m a cheerleader for these. I’ve never slept better.
