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 affecting 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 affect everything in your life, including your overall health and stress levels. So, how can a mattress help you get a good night’s sleep? A mattress that is made with you in mind is a good way to help get that sleep that we know is very valuable.

When shopping for a mattress the first thing to do is to test it. Go into any of our EZ Living Furniture stores found by clicking here.  Be sure to put aside an hour to make sure the mattress you choose is right for you. Mattresses should be replaced every eight to ten years so it is important to choose wisely.

Mattress Comfort Rating

Start by deciding between firm, medium and soft depending on your build and personal preference. It is really important to solid spinal support, however, remember that you want a mattress that you find comfortable and that is suited to your needs. 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.

Caring for your Mattress

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 lifespan of a mattress significantly.

A good mattress protector will absorb this and can be washed regularly. To see our list of mattress protectors available in our online store click here.

Climb into crisp clean sheets and be prepared for a great night’s sleep.
