Last night, you went to bed at 11 PM, and you followed all the steps for a successful night’s sleep. You followed a routine that included winding down before bed. Instead of watching the lasts episode of your favorite program, you read some of the magazines that had been piling up on the nightstand.
You avoided snacking after 7 PM, drank your last caffeinated beverage at 4 PM, and worked out on your lunch break. So, the question is, why do you still feel exhausted? While, you followed most of the successful rules for a getting a good night’s sleep, the problem may be your mattress.
If your mattress isn't providing you with enough support, or the springs are poking and pushing you, your quality of sleep is directly affected. So even though you did everything right, and spent 8-10 hours asleep, it was more quantity than quality.
Memory Foam Mattresses Improve Quality Sleep
- A memory foam mattress can feel like sleeping on a cloud as it relieves your pressure points
- The amount of time you spend tossing and turning can be reduced by 75% (spend that energy in the gym instead)
- As the mattress contours to your body’s shape, it has a relaxing effect on your brain and body
- Your memory foam mattress contains less allergens than a traditional mattress, and allergies often equal fatigue
Yes, buying a new mattress is an investment, but it’s an investment in your health, your well-being, and your future. Quality sleep makes you happier (bring grumpy isn't fun), more productive, increases memory retention, and also gives your body time to heal. When you think about how much time you spend sleeping (1/3 of your life) versus time spent on other activities, it makes sense to buy a quality mattress that contributes to your quality of life!
Remember those old credit card commercials? New flat screen TV $1500, new smartphone $300, dinner and a movie $100 (babysitters are expensive), a good night’s sleep…PRICELESS.
