Have you put enough time and research into choosing the proper mattress? You should! Nearly one-third of our lives is spent sleeping; we invest more time into sleep than any other activity. Because of this, it’s vital to choose the right mattress with the proper support, firmness and size so you can get the sleep you need to live a healthier and more productive life.

Mattress Support and Firmness

The right mattress shouldn’t be too hard or too soft. A soft mattress can potentially provide poor support, resulting in muscle stiffness, and back and neck pain. Look for valleys or bumps on your mattress as a tell-tale sign that’s it’s too soft – consider purchasing a new, more supportive mattress when you find these indicators.

Moreover, a mattress that is too hard can exert too much force on pressure points such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips, which can contort the spine and lead to further sleep disturbances. The perfect mattress should mold to your body while providing gentle support and firmness.

Size

When it comes to mattresses, bigger is better. Consider this, the average person moves around generally 30 times each night. Combine this movement with a partner and sleeping space can become cramped or uncomfortable. Therefore, you may want to consider purchasing a larger mattress so you and your partner can sleep comfortably. Plus, many mattresses are designed to reduce tossing and turning, such as the Tempur-Pedic® Tempur-Cloud Luxe, and to also deflect your partner’s movements so you get the sleep you deserve.
