How important is a good night’s sleep?


Are you having trouble sleeping?
The importance of a good mattress is something that could well be effecting how you get to sleep. We spend a quarter of our lives in bed, so it is well worth taking the time to get it right.

Lack of sleep  can effect everything in your life, including your overall health  and stress levels.
So, how can a mattress help you get a good night’s sleep?
When shopping for a mattress the first thing to do is to test it. Go into any of our EZ Living Furniture stores, and put aside an hour. Mattresses should be replaced every eight to ten years so it is important to choose wisely.

Start by deciding between firm, medium and soft depending on your build and personal preference. It is really important to get good spinal support.
Remember to lie down. Make yourself comfortable and be prepared to test out a mattress for at least 10 minutes. Try different sleeping positions on a number of different mattresses to be sure that you are comfortable with your decision.
Once you get your mattress home it is important to care for it well. A mattress needs rotating at least 4 times a year, and once weekly in the first 4 weeks to allow for even settlement of fillings and even weight distribution throughout the years. This will extend the life of the mattress and of course contribute to great sleep.
Another essential for both a good night sleep and extending the life of your mattress is a mattress protector. Not a pleasant fact, but we sweat up to one pint of moisture each and every night and without a good mattress protector this moisture will soak into the fillings of the mattress and deplete the quality and support, and reduce the life span of a mattress significantly. A good mattress protector will absorb this and can be washed regularly.
Climb into crisp clean sheets and be prepared for a great night’s sleep.
All EZ Living Furniture stores have dedicated sleep specialists on hand to help you with your purchase.

  1. Absolutely love EZ Living but in particular the Sligo Store. We ended up purchasing kitchen/bedroom furniture for our house recently and I have to say Nicola in Sligo went over and above the call of duty to ensure we got what we wanted (even on her days off might I add!!!) I couldn’t recommend this store enough. Having spent the last 5 months shopping for practically everything, we have covered most of Ireland and I have not come across anything that would match EZ Living in Sligo. Full credit to wonderful staff in Sligo, in particular Nicola, lovely lady and so helpful.

  2. Oh, I didn’t know that we should replace our mattress every 8-10 years. My mattress is about 12 years old, so I guess it’s time to buy a new one. I prefer one with medium firmness. And I guess I need a mattress protector too.

  3. Congratulations for post!
    Totally agree. Fon instance, if you often wake up with a sore back or an aching neck, you may need to invest in a new mattress or a try a different pillow. Make sure your bed is comfortable.
