Next to sleep, the most neglected is the mattress. It is a myth that you can sleep just about anywhere.
To get sleep that’s deep and comfortable, you need a mattress that’s deep and comfortable too.
Your mattress should provide the ideal support and comfort your body needs. Mattress comfort is a personal preference, so when you’re shopping for one, lie down on it if necessary. It is the only way to figure out how it feels.
A refreshing night's sleep sets the stage for the day to come. Do you:
• have a worse night's sleep than you did a year ago?
• wake up with stiffness and body aches?
• find your mattress sags, has lumps or is worn out?
• have a 6-8 year old mattress? (the life of a mattress depends on its usage and material quality, generally manufacturers and chiropractors recommend replacing your mattress every 6 to 8 years)
If you answer YES to any of the above? Then probably its time for you to change your mattresses.
1. Are you healthy? Are you bruised or injured anywhere? Any stains or marks?
2. Are you out of shape? Are you bulging at the seams?
3. Are there depressions in the sleeping area?
4. Is your foundation uneven or sagging?
5. Are you embarrassed to be stripped off the sheets?
6. Do you make creaking or other suspicious noises?
7. Do you sag in the middle with the result that we sleepers sag in the middle too?
8. And lastly, are you ready for retirement?
Mattress prices range widely depending on size and materials used. When it comes to good healthy sleep and comfort, buying the mattress that has good quality material and assurance that’s within your budget should be your main concern. But if the perfect mattress is bit over ones budget, and if that extra budget can be managed without much trouble then one should go for it.
Look at cost of mattress as your investment for better health. After all a good health and comfort sleep is more important than few extra penny
- Ask the salesperson if they can show you illustrated or actual "cutaways" of the interior of the different mattress and foundation choices so you can see what's inside.
- Compare services such as delivery, financing and offers.
- Shop for the best value, not the lowest price.
- When comparing, remember that a "bargain" mattress and foundation are no bargain when it comes to getting a good night's sleep. Considering that you'll probably be using your bed more than any other product you own - including your car, TV, computer or cell phone - the mattress you sleep on is one of the best cost-per-day values on the market today. Buy the best you can afford.
