If you weren’t already aware, March is National Bed Month raising awareness of how important a good night’s sleep is for you and your body. As well as the necessity of a quality mattress to get the best night’s sleep possible.
Everyone faces that dilemma at some point in their life, tossing and turning to try and find a comfortable position to sleep, wrestling with your partner for the quilt, before finally nodding off at around 2am with your alarm set for 7am. One of the biggest reported issues of sleep deprivation is partner disturbance, and a simple trick like having a wider mattress can change the way you sleep. We all know there’s no better feeling than waking up after a good night’s sleep, but what is the best way to achieve this?
The answer is far easier than you realise. There is no secret formula, no secret sleeping position, it’s a simple process that can revolutionise your life.
Care for your spine
Chronic back pains can be one of the biggest, well, pains that can be caused by a bad mattress, this is where your mattress choice makes all the difference.
Pocket Sprung mattresses adapt to your body shape whilst you sleep, relieving the pressure on your back and joints. Having adequate spinal support is one of the most important aspects of a comfortable night’s sleep. When your back is in a compromising position, your muscles will tighten, causing stress and pain. Pocket Sprung mattresses help to reduce this stress, giving you a comfortable night’s sleep.
If you are unable to buy a new mattress, you can mimic the support using pillows. You can place pillows between your knees to reduce the pressure on your spine. If you sleep on your back, you can place a pillow under your knees to keep your back straight and supported.
Does a memory foam mattress have the same effect?
Memory foam mattresses are becoming an increasingly popular solution for bed lovers. They use the heat from your body to mould your body shape into the mattress, improving your posture for a great night’s sleep.
If you sleep with a fidgeter or a restless sleeper, your mattress will prevent their movements from affecting you, giving you a peaceful and relaxing night’s sleep.
If you suffer from allergies, you’ll also be glad to know your sleep won’t be affected by a sudden bout of sneezing. Our pocket sprung mattresses are unlikely to irritate your skin or flare up your allergy whilst you sleep. It’s also best to change your bed linen regularly, this is a simple trick to avoid allergy reactions.
At Bed Guru, we have a full range of memory foam mattresses, with free delivery across England and Wales, and worldwide delivery available.
Could a mattress topper be your saving grace?
Mattress toppers can provide great support, without the need to buy a new mattress. They have been specially designed to provide extra comfort and increased support for your spine.
Sleeping on a mattress that’s too firm is another common cause of back pain. A mattress topper can help to reduce the pressure, allowing your spine to fall into a natural position. A topper provides the additional cushioning to your hip and shoulder area, providing you with a far more comfortable, and all-around better night’s sleep.
Not only does your mattress topper have numerous benefits for you, but it also has certain benefits for your mattress. A mattress topper will extend the life of your mattress, preventing it from gathering dead skin cells which can shorten the life of your mattress.
