Before you go into mattress shop and start laying on 6-7 beds, there are a few things you should consider.
Always go for the biggest size you can fit in your room. The first thing that stop you from having a good night sleep is to have a bed that’s too small for you.
There are hundred of choices in the market. Always do your research and have a budget in mind. Obviously you can’t expect a $99 mattress to last 10 years with 8 hours use per day but at the same time, you don’t want to go crazy spending your life-savings on a 4-5k mattress.
That is why most people will go for something in between. Do your research before you go into a store so you will have a general idea how much a good quality mattress usually cost.
There is no mattress that is perfect for every single one of us. Each person will require different firmness and different support. It is essential to try before you buy and knowing that’s the firmness that will make yourself and your partner comfortable.
Spending about 30 seconds to a minute on a bed without changing position is the best way to test out if the firmness is right for you.
The right firmness should allow you to lay on the bed in any position without moving for a minute or two and you should not be feeling sore anywhere after trying the bed.
How to pick the right mattress for myself?
Getting a good night’s sleep depends on a lot of different factors — comfort, stress level, room temperature – but to get it right, you’ve got to start with the basics and your mattress is the first building block to a restful slumber.
Researchers in Spain studied people with long-term back pain and found that on a 10-point hard-to-soft scale people who slept on a medium-to-firm mattress (5.6 on the scale) had less back pain than those who slept on a softer mattress.
How do I know the mattress I sleep on is the right one?
“If you wake up in the morning and have some low back pain and can stretch and get rid of it in 15 or 30 minutes, that means you’re on an inappropriate mattress for you,”
The right mattress, on the other hand, is one on which you feel no pressure, almost like you’re floating in air.
