Getting a good night’s sleep is vital to a productive workday and a healthier body. Could your mattress be causing issues for your waking life? If you think it might be time to replace your mattress, take a look at these three factors to consider.
Your Favorite Sleeping Position
Take into account whether you typically fall asleep on your back, side, or stomach. Also, consider if you often readjust your position throughout the night. If you are a side sleeper, you might find a plush or pillow top mattress better suited to cradling your spine than a firm mattress, which is typically preferred by back sleepers.
Your Preferred Temperature
Some like it hot … and some don’t. Your sheets, comforter, and room temperature can all play a role in how well you sleep. If you naturally heat up while you sleep, a bed with cooling technology may help you. Also consider cooling sheets, fans, and mattress protectors. It helps to keep the moisture and heat away while you sleep, allowing for a better night’s rest.
Your Current Pain Level
Many of us spend our days sitting at a desk, sitting in traffic, and sitting on the couch. All this sitting can lead to back and neck pain. If you’re experiencing this kind of pain, a better mattress can help. If you have pain in your lower back (which is very common for people who sit all day) a firmer mattress can help realign your spine while you sleep.
Enjoy a Restful Night!
We hope these three tips have helped you determine what you’re looking for in a perfect mattress. After all, getting a good night of sleep is the first step to having a great day!
