We often get asked by customers whether a mattress really does play such an important part in their sleep. Our answer is always, “Yes, it does.” In fact, your mattress can affect not only your sleep, but your general health and wellbeing too, which is why it is so important that you ensure your mattress is providing you both quality and comfort.

Often, people aren’t sure whether it is time to upgrade their mattress or not. Well, if you notice springs sticking up or sagging within your mattress, if there is only one particular place on the mattress that is comfortable, if your mattress makes noises when you move, if you wake up feeling stiff or aching or if you generally find sleeping in another bed provides you with more comfort than your own, then yes, it is likely time for a new mattress.

Many people nowadays live such hectic lives trying to achieve a work-life balance that suits them and their family. This means their bodies require a lot of energy to keep up, however, if enough sleep isn’t being achieved each night then bodies will begin to tire, leaving the person tired, unenergized and often, snappy. A lack of sleep can cause big problems – trouble concentrating at work which can lead to errors, impact mental health as tiredness causes stress and at times depression, impacts social lives, impacts on the lives of others and is even linked to heart problems and obesity. Therefore, it really is important that each adult gets between the recommended 7-9 hours’ sleep per night.

However, it is also important that quantity is not confused with quality; just because a person is spending 8 hours in bed each night, this does not mean they are experiencing quality sleep. If their mattress and sleeping environment are not suited and comfortable, then their sleep will be broken and disturbed as they attempt to reach comfort, which often leads to feeling more tired the following day.

Choosing the correct mattress is often not an easy task. There are many things to take into consideration, such as firm or soft, memory foam or spring, hypoallergenic or temperature regulation, and if two people will be sleeping in the same bed, it is important to ensure the mattress provides the right level of comfort for each person.
