We all love our microwaves and televisions. Our fridges and stoves are pretty cool too but if there is one item in our home that is of vital importance it’s our mattress. Without a good night’s sleep none of those other appliances will matter: we’ll just be too grumpy to use them! There could be many reasons why you can’t drift off to sleep but one of the most common ailments is that you’re sleeping on the wrong mattress for your body type. This might come as a surprise to many. After all, you’ve been sleeping on that same mattress for years.
Actually, that’s the real problem. A mattress is only meant to last between 5 to 8 years before it really starts to sag and loose its original firmness. When that happens, your body has a way of rejecting the mattress which translates into tossing and turning throughout the night. Are you convinced you’re ready for a new mattress yet? If so, you’ll want to do a little research before heading to the mattress store.
The first thing you’ll want to think about is the name game. There are the big brand names you’re probably familiar with thanks to their advertising campaigns but what about all those “off brands” that are cheaper? Actually, a lot of those off brands are not only made by the same leading manufacturers but they’re often the same mattress just with a few minor adjustments. Check out the leading mattress makers’ websites and scroll down for all their “partners.” For instants Simmons makes Beautyrest but they also make TruEnergy, ComfortPedic, Natural Care and BeautySleep. Learn the names and you’ll be ahead of the game.
Once in the store, the real tests begin. Yes, you’ll be able lay down on the bed to check it’s firmness but this can be misleading especially when the weather turns cooler and you bundle up. Wouldn’t it be great if you could wear you pajamas when you go shopping for a mattress? Actually, you should have the opportunity for a “test drive” so to speak. It’s going to take several days if not a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to the new mattress. That’s why you should make sure the mattress you’re buying has a solid return policy. If you hit the 20 day mark and you’re still not happy with the mattress it could be that you picked the wrong one. Swap it out and try again!
