Why does a mattress help you to sleep better?

- It’s part of the perfect sleep parcel
Are you prone to restless sleep? Once you’ve ruled out medical conditions such as sleep apnea and insomnia, you may feel at loss for answers. But it could be your mattress! When you lay on one side of your body for long periods of time, you reduce the blood flow to capillaries under your skin, stripping it of oxygen and nutrients. This is why we roll over! Mattresses that reduce pressure points can help to reduce this and give you a less restless nights’ sleep.
It’s worth noting that it might not be the type of mattress that’s causing you issues, but the mattress itself. A tired mattress can start to give you sleep and back issues – find out the signs to look out for in this handy
Lower back pain? A stiff neck that you can’t shake? It could be down to your mattress. If you’re sleeping on an ill-fitting mattress your spine may not be completely aligned. This can cause you to spend %49 less time in your REM sleep stage, which is critical for learning, memory, and overall health and well-being.
Sadly, there’s no one size fits all when it comes to mattresses – you’ve got to find what works for you. If you opt for a mattress that’s too soft, you’ll sink into it, meaning that your body isn’t correctly aligned. Too hard of a mattress and you’ll put too much pressure on the back of your head, your sacrum and your shoulders. Both of these options can be a cause of back problems.
