Choosing the Right Mattress for You

Sleeping is not only a luxury—it is a necessity for everyone. How many experts and known studies have found that enough sleep can lead to a more productive day, a healthier body and mind, and a better mood throughout the day, just to say the least. However, when our mattress isn’t giving us much convenience and comfort, expect to have a bad sleeping habit—or worst, to experience back pain and ache on other parts of the body.

So, if you are one of those who can’t sleep properly and comfortably, maybe it’s time to consider buying a new mattress. There are different types of mattresses and you should know more about them before making a much needed purchase.

The article of Zoe Galloway titled Mattress buying guide: How to Choose A Mattress posted at detailed about different types of mattress including pocket spring mattress, “(on Pocket spring mattress) this type of mattress is more luxurious, as it’s made from individual, small springs housed in their own pocket of fabric. This means each spring moves independently, providing more support than open spring mattresses. You can buy soft, medium or firm versions, depending on your preference, and they are more breathable than memory foam or latex mattresses (so ideal if you’re always getting too hot during the night). These are heavy to turn though and can be filled with natural materials such as lamb’s wool which may agitate allergies. This is a good option if you’re looking for a bed for two people, as the separate springs will cater for your different needs and weights, while they will also minimise the risk of you rolling towards your partner in the middle of the night.” She also explained the advantage of using memory foam bed mattress in the same article, “these more modern mattresses are made from memory foam, which is a mouldable material that also responds to temperature and weight, and has hypo-allergenic properties. This means it will mould to the shape of your body, absorb your weight and relieve pressure on your joints. Not everyone likes the sinking motion of this type of mattress, and it can get rather warm, but it’s ideal for those who need support or suffer from a bad back, as it will maintain posture and align your spine horizontally when sleeping on your side.”

Another option is to find the best orthopaedic mattress,

“As the name suggests, an orthopedic mattress is made in a special way to support the muscles, bones, and joints. Therefore, an orthopedic mattress benefits people who suffer from arthritis, osteoporosis or any other condition which makes them undergo pain in the muscles or joints. These orthopedic mattresses are made with either springs or special foam. They are firm enough to not bend under normal pressure and this is why they are great for relief from neck, back, and joint pain…Orthopedic mattresses are also designed to distribute the body weight of the sleeper evenly throughout the mattress. So people who previously woke up with aches all over their bodies when using their old beds now woke up feeling fresh and pain-free,” shared the article
