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.
Before you go into a mattress store, it is also important to understand the four main types of mattresses to choose from:
- Spring – Many of us should be familiar with spring mattresses as they use innerspring coils to provide support. It allows easy movement during sleep.
- Memory foam – It molds your body’s shape during sleep and creates more heat than a spring mattress
- Air – It can be adjusted to customize support and comfort
- Water – It has the ability to control temperature and requires maintenance.
Other factors that are important are sizes, customer reviews, and your budget.
When you finally step into a mattress store, it is important to remember to test out mattresses when you are tired, dress in comfortable clothing like you would be going to bed, and bring your partner (if you have one).
If you own an old mattress, it is also a good idea to consider replacing one if you have used for 7-8 years. Our body changes over time and if you experience pain and stiffness regularly, it is highly recommended to get a new mattress.
A great mattress is literally the foundation on which great sleep is built. With some up-front effort and a willingness to invest, you can help ensure many restful nights.
