Proper rest is very important for health. Without a healthy and sound sleep, you will not be able to recover, and will definitely feel apathetic and lethargic.
Sleep is a basic need of the body, along with food, water, air, and physiological needs. Humanity began to closely monitor food, purify water and air, drink vitamins but nobody pays attention to sleep. What is more, people prefer to work extra hours at night ignoring the rules of healthy sleep. Nevertheless, importance of a quality sleep in our lives cannot be underestimated. Most adults sleep 6-8 hours per day, and that makes one third of their life. Therefore, most people use a mattress more often than other things.
Our ancient ancestors slept on trees and in caves – so they were saved from ferocious predators. In the process of evolution, there was a kind of home, and soon beast skins were used as blankets and carpets to feel warm. Since ancient times bed linen has undergone great changes. First pillows and mattresses were stuffed with leaves, straw, hay, then feather and quilted pillows came. With the development of synthetic materials, foam usage was widely spread in manufacturing, later batting and other types of chemical fibers appeared. Orthopedic mattresses and pillows can be called a crown of bedding industry creation.
All buyers planning a purchase of a new mattress have the same goal: to buy a good mattress. Although, as a rule, only few really realize what was meant by the word “good” The spring or springless mattress? Soft or hard? Tall or thin? Cheap or expensive?
However, there are several general recommendations that can be useful for you.
- First, you need to determine the rigidity of an orthopedic mattress. So soft mattress is ideal for those who are accustomed to sleep on the side. Mattress of medium hardness is suitable for those who are accustomed to sleep on the back, and are recommended for people with problems in the thoracic vertebra. A hard mattress will suit those who sleep on the stomach, and are recommended for children and adolescents. Hard mattresses are not good for people older than 45 years. It is also important to know if two people having big difference in weight will use the mattress, in this case it is necessary to focus on heavier weight.
- A good mattress can be used for 8-10 years with daily night sleep. Most people do not change a good mattress a longer time. The quality of a mattress is determined by the quality of materials. However, the weight of the person who sleeps on the bed affects its service life. For example mattress will be faster destroyed if children jump on it.
- Reasonable cost is also an important thing. Lots of buyers dream to buy a good mattress at a good price. In the world of modern technologies, the low cost of mattress doesn’t mean low quality of a product. Moreover, many people increasingly prefer to buy cheap mattresses for a shorter period of use.
Remember that proper selection of a mattress is an important investment in a healthy and sweet sleep.
