Sleeping comfortably requires having a good mattress. If you have an old one that has either lost its form or is no longer providing you the proper support you need, you may end up with back aches, muscle strains or some other sleep disorder.
Replace your mattress with a better one that has the following characteristics:
1. The mattress should offer anatomically correct support. A good mattress should not give you any back pains because the spine is properly aligned and supported as you sleep. Firmer mattress are believed to provide better support as it helps keep your back even. However, what’s more important is that firm or soft, the mattress would be able to cradle your back comfortably, so that you can lie down better.
2. The mattress must be support your usual sleeping position. Some mattresses work better for a side sleeper, while others work for a back sleeper. The best way to determine this is to test the mattress out first before purchasing, so that you can well examine the kind of support it provides for the kind of sleep position you’re most often in.
3. The bed base should be firm and sturdy, and if possible, adjustable. This is especially useful for couples with different requirements from a bed. An adjustable mattress is more practical and convenient to own.
