Health Beds – The Right Mattress for Your Sleep Position
Choosing the right health beds mattress can ensure that all of your mornings are good mornings.
A good night’s sleep is essential to your health, and a good mattress is essential to a good night’s sleep. If you’re waking every morning feeling as if you’ve barely slept a wink, it could well be the fault of your bed. If you’ve already decided that your bed needs to go in favor of a new, healthy bed that will promote a good night’s sleep, here are some suggestions to help you choose the right mattress and bed for your needs.
- If you sleep on your back, look at mattresses that support the small of your back and your head. If a mattress allows your bottom to sink into the mattress and leaves a gap at your lower back, your spine will be pulled out of line and you’ll wake in the morning with an aching back.
- If you sleep on your side, consider memory foam mattresses with inner support. When you sleep on your side, you’re putting weight on joints that aren’t meant to support it – your hips, your knees and your shoulders. Without support, you could be putting additional strain on those important joints. Without adequate padding, you’re also putting bruising pressure on skin and flesh in addition to straining the joints themselves. Memory foam mattresses are designed to give where there’s more pressure and support where there’s less, leading to a more comfortable night’s sleep.
- If you sleep on your stomach, check out mattresses that offer extra firm support. When you sleep on your stomach, your body weight pulls your spine downward, putting strain on your entire skeletal system trying to compensate for it. As with any other style of sleeping, the key is to find a mattress that keeps your spine properly aligned, and you’ll find that firm support does that much better than a soft, cushy mattress.
