Did you know that a good night's sleep affects your health? Well it does! A good night’s sleep helps guard against certain illnesses and promote emotional health.The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute says that proper sleep enables your brain to learn and form memories. The American Heart Association states that good sleep is important for heart health, and the Cleveland Clinic reports that sleep deprivation can impact your weight. This means that a good mattress can make all the difference when it comes to your sleep.
There are certain things to consider before choosing your new cozy mattress. First off, one size does not fit all, literally. In order to find your best mattress, consider your sleep style, the type of mattress, your body height and weight in addition to the size of the mattress. Some people like older individuals or people with special needs have other considerations when it comes to choosing a mattress. Mattresses range in size from twin at 38" x 80" to the king at 76" x 80" and California king at 72" x 84" if you are extra tall. Extra long mattresses are also available in twin and full sizes. A full-size mattress is 54" x 75", while a queen size is 60" x 80".
How do you choose the right firmness? While it is possible to find a soft mattress, it is for sure not recommended for any sleep style or body type because it does not have enough hip or spine support. A medium soft mattress is recommended for people who sleep on their side, and a medium firm mattress is recommended for most sleep styles and body types. A medium-firm mattress is also recommended for people who suffer from back pain. A firm mattress is generally recommended for people who are overweight, and it can also be best for the elderly and the disabled.
How do you pick the right type? Traditional innerspring mattresses composed of steel coils are the most common type of mattress. Innerspring mattresses are good for most sleep styles, especially stomach sleepers. They are highly recommended for people who are overweight, the elderly and the disabled. An innerspring mattress is typically cooler than other mattress types.
