Tired of tossing and turning restless night after restless night? The trouble could be right underneath your nose.. or, your body, rather. Choosing a mattress that's perfect for your body could be the key to a more restful night's sleep. Check out these tips below to help your mattress-shopping adventures!
1. Make Sure It's Not Too Old
First things, first. Notice that your mattress has been hitting some uncomfortable pressure points that it didn't used to hit? This may be because it’s time for a new mattress! Hearing squeaks and creaks when you move? Same thing! Make sure to replace your mattress every 5-10 years, although it depends on the mattress. Listen to your body and to the sounds your mattress is making!
2. Make Sure It Matches Your Sleep Pattern
Are you a light sleeper who isn't the only one using the bed? You may want to invest in a softer mattress that cuts down on movement from another person (or pet). Craving firmness even though you're sharing a bed? Investing in an adjustable mattress with different firmness levels is the way to go.
3. Make Sure It's the Right Material
Mattresses are NOT one size fits all. They come in various materials and textures, such as memory foam, latex, coils, or a hybrid of multiple types
Latex mattresses offer temperature regulation because of their breathability, as well as a natural bounciness. A coil mattress offers top of the line support. Memory foam provides soft, form-fitting material to hug your body. And if you crave the firmness with the form-fitting material, there are hybrid models that combine coil action with a softer top!
4. Make Sure Budget Doesn’t Hold You Back
Not everybody can afford the adjustable mattress or the all-over memory foam. And that's okay! There are ways to transform your mattress If you’re looking to upgrade your mattress right away without completely buying a new one, consider a topper for your mattress. Toppers come in all types of materials… not JUST memory foam (although that’s an option). Latex toppers will add temperature control and breathability, while memory foam will add a layer of unparallelled softness. Ready to start dreaming peacefully?
