The need to sleep is a common feature of all living things including humans but as humans, the quality of that sleep is different from person to person. However, very few of us are aware of the actual importance of a good night’s sleep on our well-being. Physical health, mental health, overall quality of life, and even things like our general safety are all linked to the quality of the sleep we get, and that is linked to the quality of the mattress we sleep on. From adjustability and durability to types, to preferences, to budget and even weight, here are some of the guides one must consider in selecting a mattress for the Yuletide season.
Here’s a quick guide to selecting a new mattress for the Yuletide.
Determine Your Budget
Investing in a good mattress is a worthwhile investment considering the amount of time we spend on our sleep surface and how a mattress helps to reinvigorate our bodies. However, before embarking on the journey to pick a mattress for the Yelutide, it’s important to first consider how much you’re willing to spend on a new mattress. Note, while focusing on your budget, it is important to have a fairly reasonable budget so as to get a quality mattress that will not compromise your comfort and health. For this reason, investing in a mattress that will provide you with a good night’s sleep is always worth it.
Choose a Mattress Size
One question you need to ask yourself is, “What kind of mattress do I need?” If you live in a particularly small space it may be best to opt for a smaller size, such as a twin or full mattress. Although, if you have room to stretch, a queen or king-size mattress may be more suitable for your needs.
Evaluate Mattress Thickness
Contrary to mattress myth, the thickness of a mattress does not define its level of comfort but it does influence how the mattress manufacturers designed it. Mattress thickness plays a large role in the cost, too. Thicker mattresses require more material, they’re automatically more expensive than thinner alternatives. The thickness of each mattress will affect comfort because if the mattress is too thin it can impact your health. Whether or not a mattress is good overall depends on the quality of the material, the different sleeping positions, and the preferences of the individual.
Consider Body Support
Whether you’re small or tall, your mattress should support your whole body. To that end, let’s talk about spine alignment and pressure relief. These are key factors to consider when looking for a mattress that provides support. Spinal alignment is probably the most important aspect when it comes to body support in a mattress. Bad sleeping posture may lead to misalignment, which can cause soreness in the neck, back, and shoulders. When your body aligns properly during sleeping hours, you give your muscular-skeletal system a better chance to rest—whether it’s from hours hunched over a computer screen or spending seasons in the garden. Also, your body will be best supported by a mattress that evenly distributes your body weight so the heavier parts of your body, like your hips and shoulders, don’t sink in too deeply. If they do, your mattress could be causing strain on your pressure points.
Select Your Desired Mattress Firmness
The firmness of a mattress refers to the initial feeling you experience when lying on it. When determining how to pick the right mattress, you must consider your preferred firmness level. There is a common misconception that the firmness of a mattress affects its support, but really, firmness is subjective and does not equate to support. This is because firmness is determined by how far a sleeper sinks into their mattress, while support is measured by how well the mattress maintains a sleeper’s alignment.
Assess Your Sleeping Position
Your preferred sleeping position can play a part in choosing the right mattress. Sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t offer the right support for your usual position can contribute to pain and poor sleep. We might have all been there—tossing and turning without a moment’s shut-eye. But did you know that we still toss and turn even during deep sleep? In fact, people change positions at least 20 times per night. Most sleepers often start off on their sides and transition to their backs throughout the night—or vice versa. As such, it’s important to find a mattress that can provide adequate support for different sleeping patterns and positions.
Review Different Mattress Types
There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to how to choose a mattress type. Really, it greatly depends on your personal comfort preferences.
