Is it time to buy a new mattress?
If you’re not sure, ask yourself these 5 simple questions.
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, it might be time to look into buying a new mattress.
How well you sleep can determine what kind of day, week or even month you’ll have. This makes buying the right mattress one of the most important decisions you can make for your overall health. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you on your mattress buying journey.
It’s easy to look at a mattress online and decide it’s the one for you because it’s a recognized name or a flashy brand. Keep in mind that influencers are making a great living telling you what to buy. But when it really comes down to it, you’re the one who will be sleeping on it for hours, every single night.
Do your research online and jot down the features that catch your eye, then you may wish to pay a visit to your local mattress store to physically test the mattresses on your list. While you’re in-store, talk to a professional and ask as many questions as you need to so that you feel comfortable that you’re moving in the right direction. Whether you end up purchasing at a brick and mortar or you purchasing online, you will know you’ve made the best-informed decision for you.
Most importantly, don’t be shy about your line of questioning. It’s important you choose the mattress that’s best for you.
How you sleep plays a big role in determining which mattress is best for you.
Side Sleeper: Soft to medium firm levels to help keep your spine aligned.
Stomach Sleeper: A firm mattress so your pressure points don’t sink too far.
Back Sleeper: Medium firmness to assist with proper alignment.
Combination Sleeper: Medium firmness to best support your changing positions.
Body type is also a factor when determining the right amount of firmness.
If you sleep warm, a cooling mattress may be your best friend. Keep in mind that not all cooling materials are made equal and talking with a mattress professional will give you more clarity on this growing trend.
