Getting a good night’s sleep is important to all of us. Without the right amount of sleep, we are subject to aches and pains, lethargy, trouble concentrating, decreased immunity and many other ill effects that could be erased if we just slept better! The problem is that, as we get older, we can no longer tolerate lumpy or uncomfortable mattresses. Instead of waking up uncomfortable, we might wake up in a great deal of pain. A high-quality mattress can help with many of these issues, specifically a memory foam mattress. If you have heard of memory foam mattresses before, but don’t know much about them, here are three of their advantages and why you should get one on your next visit to the furniture store.
- Full, consistent support. When you have a spring mattress of any kind, pillow-topped or otherwise, you aren’t getting the support that you might need to avoid aches and pains the next day. A memory foam mattress warms up with your body heat, causing the foam to soften and conform to your own shape with equal support everywhere.
- Better nights for partners. If you or your partner are light sleepers, then you know that the smallest movement can transfer over to their side and wake them up. Not only does this leave one partner feeling perpetually exhausted, but it leaves both partners crabby the next day!
- Longer lifespan. Memory foam mattresses don’t age quite the same way that a traditional mattress does. Instead of slowly losing its shape over time, it will actually return to its original shape each time.
These are a few reasons why, on your next visit to the local furniture store, you should consider upgrading your mattress. However, not all furniture stores offer mattresses and pillows, so you might need to visit a specialty mattress store if you are interested in getting a memory foam mattress.
