Helpful Guides & Tips for Extra Firm Mattresses
What are the benefits of an extra firm mattress?
If you find yourself struggling to get a good night's sleep, waking up in the morning aching and in pain, or often hearing complaints about your snoring or heavy breathing, then upgrading your mattress to an extra firm orthopaedic mattress from MattressNextDay may well be the answer to your problems.
While 'extra firm' might not be the first words you associate with a comfortable sleep, these mattresses can provide a whole range of benefits over softer mattress styles. Extra firm mattresses provide a greater level of support for your sleeping position, a particularly important feature for larger body frames. Side sleeping has long been acknowledged by sleep experts as the healthiest sleeping position, as it allows for correct alignment of the spine by supporting the shoulders, spine, and pelvis while minimising the pressure applied to sensitive areas, such as the neck and lower back. Side sleeping also allows for better airway circulation while you sleep, which alleviates the effects of sleep apnea and reduces snoring. An extra firm mattress can greatly aid side sleeping by providing proper support, minimising the risk of rolling and ensuring you remain in a healthy, comfortable sleeping position all night.
Extra firm mattresses can also aid with body weight distribution. Ensuring that your weight is equally distributed is key to sleeping well and to avoiding long-term back and joint pain. A firm mattress will adequately support your body and prevent you from moving too much, maintaining that all-important weight distribution. All of these benefits can add up to a huge long-term impact on your health. During sleep, your body repairs and rejuvenates itself, restoring cells and activating important hormones. Without a good rest, you'll be missing out on these important benefits.
