How a Good Mattress can Help you Sleep Better

Published on: January 9, 2019 | by: Rachel

If you’re wondering why you keep waking up tired, even though you stick to a rigorous sleep schedule, it’s worth thinking about what role your bed might be playing.

We spend a third of our life sleeping, so your mattress plays a crucial role in maintaining both your health and well-being.

A good night’s sleep is essential for the functioning of our body and sleep helps to recharge our batteries after a tiring day, even helping to boost our immune system.

 

According to numerous studies, a person should sleep between 7 and 8 hours per night. Of course, everyone is different, so some of us can feel rested after only 6 hours, while others need more than 8.

However, it’s a known fact that many people around the world aren’t getting enough rest for their mental and physical health.

They very often wake up more tired than when they went to bed.

Over time, this can lead to apathy, memory problems, an inability to do things and an inability to concentrate.

Looking for the perfect mattress

A good mattress can make all the difference when it comes to getting that perfect sleep, so it’s worth investing in a high-quality one.

If you’re not sure if your mattress needs replacing, look out for some clear signs. Any sagging, back pain, numbness in limbs? All signs that there may be a problem.

So once you’ve decided you need a new mattress, how do you choose the right one?

There are several criteria to consider.

First, it’s important to think about how you sleep. On your front, side or back? Or maybe all three?

If you sleep on your back or stomach, you’ll most likely need a firm mattress that can help your body maintain a correct position.

If you sleep on your side, then you should consider a softer mattress.

Essentially, your mattress should support your spine along with the rest of your body in a proper, healthy position.

In addition, the mattress should be easily adaptable to your body’s shape and weight.

And don’t forget, if you’re a sensitive person who often suffers from allergies, you can opt for a top-notch hypoallergenic mattress.

Material-wise, you can choose from spring mattresses (which are usually the firmest ones), foam mattresses, and latex mattresses.

So do some research, visit bed stores and try some out and you’ll be sleeping like a baby in no time!
