Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best things you can do for your body and your mind. In order to get a full night’s rest with plenty of REM sleep, you need to be comfortable, and that’s why it’s so important to pick the right mattress.
Testing a Mattress
Buying a mattress is something you never want to do online or at a store where they don’t have the mattresses out on display to try. Comfort is key when choosing a mattress, so you want to be able to test it out before you buy it. Put on some comfortable clothing and visit a store that has a variety of beds on display. Lay down on the beds to see if you prefer a firmer or softer bed. If you sleep with someone else, make sure that they are with you to test out the beds as well. You want to make sure you choose a mattress that will allow you both to sleep well.
Mattresses are constructed using different materials, including coils of many types, latex and foams including memory foam. Each has a different feel to it, so be sure to test them all.
The size of the mattress will also have a big impact on how comfortable you are when you sleep. A smaller mattress will force you to sleep closer to your partner, making you hot to sleep. A larger mattress will give you the space to move around until you are comfortable and avoid disrupting each other during the night!
