Sleep is essential to our health and well-being. Getting enough sleep helps us feel alert, productive, and energised throughout the day. On the other hand, not getting enough sleep can have negative consequences on our bodies and minds. The quality of your mattress can directly affect how much you get out of your sleep time. After all, you spend one-third of your life sleeping! A good mattress supports your body while keeping you cool and allowing for optimal relaxation.

But what exactly makes a good mattress? Does it need to be firm, soft, or something in between? What are some things you should keep in mind when shopping for a new mattress? Keep reading to find out!

Good Nights SleepWhat to look for in a good mattress

The mattress needs to be comfortable; this is the most important feature of a good mattress. Your mattress should be comfortable regardless of your weight and sleeping position.

Durability: Keeping in mind the fact that you will be using it for a long time, you should also be looking for a mattress that is durable and long-lasting to maintain sleep comfort.

Temperature regulation: You don’t want a mattress that traps in heat during the summer or keeps you freezing in the winter. A good mattress should be able to regulate its temperature to keep you at a comfortable and healthy sleeping temperature all year round.

Mattress types

Firm: If you like a sturdy feel when you lie down, then a firm mattress is for you. These types of mattresses will give you a little more support. People who like to use a mattress topper for extra comfort also tend to prefer a firm mattress for support.

Soft: A soft mattress will conform nicely to the shape of your body, providing optimal comfort and support. While not everyone will like a soft mattress, they are great for people who are light in weight or have back or joint issues.

Medium: This is a good option if you don’t like a firm or particularly soft mattress but want something in between.

At Amare Living, we have a range of mattresses including all firmness types so there is sure to be one that is just right for you.

Deciding on a mattress type

The best way to find a mattress that works for you is to keep these 3 things in mind:

  • Your sleeping positions
  • Your weight
  • Your health concerns

If there are certain aspects of your health that you are concerned about, then you may want to find a mattress that provides support for those areas.

Tips for a good night’s sleep no matter what mattress you sleep on

Consider these practices:

  • Put down your electronic devices and avoid blue light technology for at least an hour before bedtime.
  • Keep your bedroom cool by opening a window, using a fan or an air conditioning unit.
  • Stick to a schedule. Consistent sleep routine that helps you up at a similar time each day, and puts you in bed at a similar time each night, can help your brain and body to relax.

Wrapping up

A good mattress can make a world of difference in your sleep quality. When shopping for a new mattress, make sure to keep these things in mind to find the mattress that is the best fit for you. Not only will a good mattress improve the quality of your sleep, but it can also have a positive impact on the rest of your life! A good mattress can help reduce back pain, improve your sleep quality, improve your mood, and improve your cognitive function, among other things. So, what are you waiting for?
