Our beds are a much bigger and indispensable part of our daily lives, but how often to we really observe our beds (besides of course when we’re falling into them)? Not often enough, really.
What does it matter, you might be wondering. Well, firstly consider that all of us need restful and sufficient sleep to work, i.e. perform our daily tasks, fulfill responsibilities like chores, work, parenting etc.. Secondly – inadequate sleep decreases productivity; increases irritability and may eventually cause several health issues (such as diabetes; weight control problems; animal in attic removal: high blood pressure and so forth ). Thirdly – our beds (old or improper mattresses) could be the leading cause that we do not get enough’good’ sleep.
Here are a few things you need to Understand about ageing mattresses that have probably seen their last good days:
They’re store houses and breeding grounds for allergens
Older mattresses are usually discoloured, dusting and often a bit smelly (frequently we have just gotten use to the specific scent). These changes are caused by some slightly disturbing things. These and other compounds are broken down, which releases foul fumes from inside our mattresses.
These factors all contribute to poor sleep quality due to inhalation of those microscopic allergens which set off allergic reactions – like coughing or wheezing; coughing or stuffy sinuses etc..
Your body’s mattress demands change, but mattresses don’t
Mattresses eventually lose their ability to properly encourage y body, the more you sleep on it. Also – age, body weight changes and pregnancy have an effect on this – as your body may require a unique mattress that will be gentle enough in your own body, whilst still being firm. Inadequate mattresses, that don’t support our own bodies sufficiently can lead to sleep distress, loss of sleep and waking up with aches and pains daily. It is therefore important to make certain that your mattress is the correct mattress for your body’s needs – in terms of the aforementioned, as well as your physique and preferred sleeping position.
Beds and sleep aren’t just about mattresses
A frequently overlooked information about getting a great night’s sleep is what is on our beds. Pillows. All of us have a favorite pillow and it’s tough to imagine that it could be leading to restless nights and groggy mornings. The truth is – if your pillow is not supporting your head and neck by adapting a straighter posture – it’s not doing you much good when trying to sleep. Buying quality pillows that suit your sleeping position – be it on your back, side or stomach – is an investment in your sleeping and basically in everything that’s affected by it. There’s many different pillows which are specially designed to lend support and comfort during the night – to help ensure your sleep is not laid to waste.
