Most people try to avoid spending money when it isn’t necessary. Furniture shopping is already expensive. If there are more inexpensive furniture alternatives, they will typically be the most popular. However, there are a few heavy-use items that are worth splurging for to ensure top quality. For example, your bed. You sleep in your bed every night. For many, they are joined by their significant other or their beloved pet. People look forward to sleep the moment they open their eyes in the morning. The invention of the snooze button was both revolutionary and detrimental to the sleep habits of average human beings. Getting a good night’s rest is one of the best things you can do for your health. If you’re sleeping on a low-quality mattress, you may be depriving yourself of high-quality rest.
One of the first things to examine once you have realized that it’s time for a new mattress is the current size of your bed. Is it adequate? Do you find yourself curled up on a sliver of the bed while your dog enjoys a peaceful slumber sprawled out in the middle of your full-size mattress? If you answered yes, it might be time to upgrade to a queen size mattress. If you are an adult and you’re sleeping in a twin-size bed, the chances are high that it’s time for an upsize.
Unless you’re a single sleeper whose sleeping style is on your back, arms folded, give yourself the added comfort of allowing some tossing and turning! A size up from the twin-size mattress is the full-size mattress. The most popular mattress size is the queen-size mattress, which is typically used in a master bedroom. This bed is a popular mattress choice for couples. However, if you and your significant other have incompatible sleeping styles, or share the bed with a couple of cats, consider a king! If they’re fat cats, maybe try a California king.
A bed that is too soft or too firm could result in a poor night’s sleep, even if you have plenty of space to snuggle up with your favorite pillow. We’ve all heard the story of Goldilocks; even that bear family customized their bed textures to fit their bodies. Today, there are several different mattress styles on the market to choose from. A couple of examples of these mattress styles include memory foam and innerspring. Depending on your personal preference, either one may be a good option for you. Suppose you struggle with chronic pain and need pressure relief. In that case, hybrid mattresses may be able to provide you with a combination of soft comfortability and support under pressure points.
Why is sleep so important?
The way you feel when you’re awake is a direct result of the way you slept. Hence the saying “got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.” A good night’s sleep supports healthy brain function and supports your emotional well-being. Sleep deprivation goes much deeper than just irritability. Lack of sleep can result in lower stress tolerance and strain in your personal relationships. Overall, rest is what powers your brain. If you’re tossing and turning all night due to an uncomfortable mattress, you could be more likely to make mistakes at work the next day. You may even feel more emotional or overwhelmed when something doesn’t go your way.
More severe impacts of poor sleep include unsafe driving and an increased risk of chronic health problems. Rest starts with your bed. Your mattress is the foundation on which you’ll build your house of sleep. If you’re waking up with aches and pains, consider how much better you would feel after a long night of comfortable sleep.
