Most of the time, you spend your days lying around in bed. You twist, turn, or simply lay wide awake. You don’t know that your bed and your mattress matter in order for you to have a good rest and sleep.
The mattress has an effect on what we call the capillaries. The capillaries are the way through which blood flows in your body, delivering nutrients and oxygen to your cells and vital organs. For instance, when you lie flat in bed for a certain period of time, your brain signals you to turn to your side because the area needs to breathe so that the flow of blood will not be interfered. Turning sides or rolling over helps restore the blood flow in the area, and this disrupts your sleep. This explains why a good mattress is important – to avoid pressure on the position of the sleep in order not to disturb your sleep.
There is an ideal mattress for every person. When choosing a mattress, it doesn’t matter if you pay higher or whether one brand is more popular than the other. What is important is that it matches what you need.
There are different kinds of mattresses that can help you achieve a restful sleep:
- If you are a very sensitive person and have allergies, you need to get a hypoallergenic mattress or one that protects against the growth of dust mites.
- If you are experiencing neck and back pains, what you need is a not-so-soft and not-so-hard mattress. If you choose to buy a soft mattress, you will sink to the bottom. If you choose the hard mattress, you will put too much pressure on your sacral area (butt area), shoulders, and the back of your head.
- If you experience COPD or heart burn, you need to have adjustable beds that can be adjusted anytime of the day.
When choosing a proper mattress for you, you need to try it before buying it. Lay on the mattress for 20 minutes to find out if it is the right one for you.
