If you care about the health and well-being of your body, it’s worth investing in a good mattress. If you’ve ever felt like your mattress is just not right, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s one of the most common complaints among Americans. According to a poll by mattress brand Casper, 44% of us are unhappy with our current bed. And while we might be happy to make do with this subpar sleep surface for years, there are several good reasons why you should invest in a better mattress sooner rather than later—starting with how it affects your overall well-being.
It affects how you feel
If you’re looking to buy a new mattress, it’s important to keep in mind that comfort is very subjective. What one person finds comfortable may be the opposite of what another person needs. Some people prefer firm mattresses, while others want soft. Some people like their mattresses too soft, while others prefer them too hard. Still, others prefer memory foam or latex mattresses over traditional spring ones.
On top of all this, each sleeping position has its own unique needs when it comes to mattress firmness and thickness: side sleepers need more support than back sleepers; stomach sleepers don’t need much support at all due to their natural body contours (but they do benefit from thicker layers of padding).
When considering your options, think about how your current mattress feels and what type of sleeping position(s) you tend toward most often—and then choose something that suits those preferences best!
It affects how well you sleep
A good mattress can help you sleep better by providing the right level of support, which means it can help prevent or treat many common aches and pains. By supporting your spine, a good mattress can alleviate back pain caused by scoliosis or other types of spinal deformity. Similarly, it can minimize neck pain when resting on an improperly angled pillow or while sleeping in an awkward position; as well as shoulder pain from sleeping on one side all night long; hip pain from laying with legs together and knees bent inward for too long; and more!
It’s important to note that not all mattresses are created equal: some may offer too much cushioning, causing your body to sink into them rather than rest evenly on the surface like it should. Others might be too firm for those who prefer extra support—or even just uncomfortable if there aren’t enough layers between you and the bottom layer!
A good mattress can last decades
When purchasing a mattress, the quality of its materials is key. The better the material, the longer your mattress will last. The average mattress life span is 10 years, but some can last for decades!
When you get a good night’s sleep, it’s because your body has been completely supported. You should feel relaxed and refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
A mattress can be comfortable for some people but not for others. This is why it’s important to find one that suits your needs and preferences best. There may be some trial-and-error involved, but once you find one that works for you, there will be no turning back!
It can also be sustainable
mattresses are a large part of the average household’s carbon footprint. According to National Geographic, on average, each mattress contains about six pounds of chemicals and other materials that can be recycled or composted through an eco-friendly service provider like EcoWasteSolutions.
In addition to being made from materials that can be recycled or composted, many mattresses are also now made with sustainable materials such as organic cotton and wool, bamboo fibers, latex foam (which is harvested sustainably) and more. In fact, one manufacturer even uses old soda bottles!
If you’re ready to make your sleep more sustainable, the mattress is the place to start. A good mattress can reduce stress and help you get better quality rest. We recommend trying out a few different options before making a decision on what type of mattress will work best for you.
