Sleep is a public health issue and it matters because this is when the body does its best to repair itself. It also helps with boosting the immunity functions and the development of growth hormones that makes it possible for the body to withstand sickness and diseases. The lack of sleep or the insufficient amount of sleep one gets when they are overworked, or stressed and very busy doing other things have known to take its toll. But consequently, having the wrong type of mattress can also hamper comfort that affects the quality of sleep.
The body needs a supportive mattress and will send signals when the mattress you’re sleeping on isn’t up to task. So, if you find yourself tossing and turning in bed, or waking up with a few body pains, then it could indicate problems with it. Sometimes, your body may need a firmer mattress, not a softer mattress (or vice versa) to be able to rest better. Hence, choosing a good mattress is still dependent on what your body needs and not what the mattress can deliver.
Before buying a new mattress then, always make it a point to test the item first and see how your body responds to it. Most mattress stores these days allow for consumers to take at least a ten minutes test, by lying down on a mattress to see if the features are at par with what they require.
