Did you know choosing the perfect mattress is the secret to a great sleep? Sleep accounts for 1/3 of our time in daily life and it requires the right equipment to deliver the best results. Of course, you can choose to sleep on a bad mattress but the comfortability of that would be very low. When choosing a mattress, two main factors are comfort and support. Comfort is a feeling that every individual experience differently. Some people like their bed firmer and some will like their bed softer. Support is a surface that pushes on the body, which allows the spine to relax. You would like a mattress that supports your body without your hips sinking and allows your muscles to relax.
