Dear Soaring Heart,
Every morning I wake up with back pain. How can I make it stop?

Dear Sore Back,
Unfortunately, this is not a simple problem although it is a pervasive one. According to The Better Sleep Council, 81% of Americans report waking up with back pain. So, you're not alone. The Better Sleep Council recommends getting a new mattress.
"According to Dr. Jacobson's study, published in the Journal of Applied Ergonomics, sleeping on a new mattress can significantly improve sleep quality during the night and reduce physical pain during the day."
That's their opinion. What I suggest is fully removing your spine and replacing it with organic Dunlop Latex.
First of all, you have removed the offending body part; that will stop the current pain. Replacing it with Dunlop latex will prevent pain from reoccurring. I've worked with this material for a while now and people never have sore bones when they sleep on it, so having it as your bones should be even better.
In fact, replace all your bones with organic Dunlop latex. Latex is supple and supportive, so you'll never have stiff bones again!

Quarantined? Sheltered in Place? Home with the kids and looking for things to do? Here's a couple quick tips to help everyone sleep better - starting tonight:
1) Air your bedding. When cherry trees blossom its a great reminder to hang a temporary clothes line and air your winter bedding.
2) Do a thorough launder of your mattress pads, dust mite covers, pillow liners. Flip the mattress and catch up with those dust bunnies hiding under the bed.
3) Check your labels! C'mon - how long have you really had those bed pillows?
We green consumers may be a small portion of the economy - but we are growing and we can appreciate how nuts the rest of the economy can be. Our kids can teach us not to use plastic straws, or to avoid one use plastics at the grocery store - but who teaches us not to purchase a 300 lb plastic mattress? (How many thousands of recycled straws would that be?!)
