Mattress Selection is Key in Getting a Good Nights Sleep

Probably one of the most important parts of getting a good nights sleep is finding the mattress that's right for you. I can personally vouch for this because I've been down the sleepless nights road, as well as the quest for a mattress that was the right fit for me.

When you sleep on a mattress that isn't made for your body type and sleep style it can eventually lead to sleepless and even sometimes painful nights. And that's not something any of us want to endure night after night. And in turn that's why finding the right mattress is so important.

Even though acquiring a new mattress isn't cheap you should think of it as an investment, because you'll be investing in your overall health and well-being as whole. No matter how strange it seems to say a brand-new mattress vs. a used one can change your life. Your body deserves the quality and support of a mattress that's the perfect fit for YOU, not something that's been previously used and no longer in tip top shape.

How does one go about choosing the right mattress when there are so many on the market you ask? Start with answering the questions outlined below.

What is your dominant sleeping position?

Your most preferred sleeping position plays a part in choosing the right mattress. Sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t offer the right amount of overall support for your usual position can contribute to pain and poor sleep. It's been noted that side sleepers tend to prefer a softer mattress whereas back sleepers need something a little firmer for full support.

What is your overall body type?

You need to take in account both your body weight and size. As an example for comparison if you have a smaller frame and don't weigh as much as say your partner that has a larger build you're more likely to think a medium/firm mattress is actually firmer than they do based on your size. They might need that added support of a firm mattress to find the same level of comfort that you may find in a softer mattress. Also you'll need to take in account how tall you are since twin/full beds aren't as long as twin XL/queen beds are. Let's be honest, no one is going to be comfortable with their feet hanging off the end of the bed.

What type of mattress do you want?

There are four basic types of mattresses you'll want to investigate in your selection journey. They are memory foam, innerspring, hybrid, and latex. Each one has it's own benefits and they all have different firmness's and price ranges so be sure to check them all out to find out which is best for your needs.

Finally, what benefits does the manufacturer offer?

Make sure you check to see if the mattress manufacturer you're looking at offers a trial period so you can make sure it's actually a good fit once you get it set up in your home. That's when you'll be able to find out if the mattress you picked is the right choice or not. Also check out if they they offer free shipping? Returns? A warranty? All things that are good to know up front when making your final decision. If you find a really great deal on a mattress but it ends up not working out once you've tried it out and it costs too much to ship it back you don't want to find yourself backed into a corner.

In Conclusion

There are multiple types of mattresses to choose from that are made to satisfy everyone's necessities and needs. Once you start working on the above questions you'll want to check out some online mattress reviews so you can easily find the best mattress made for your specific needs. Trust me the investment is one that you'll be thanking yourself for making years down the road.
