Are you waking up with stiffness or not sleeping as well as you used to? The problem may be a failing mattress. According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, we spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. This is why we need to feel supported and comfortable while in bed. The association advises replacing your mattress every 8 to twelve years for this. If it’s that time of the decade for you, here are some things to keep in mind.
When shopping, go from mattress to mattress to get an initial feeling, says Tricia Devoe, owner of Sears Hometown Parry Sound. Then go back to the ones you like and try them out longer. You’re looking for support and comfort.
The coils provide the support. A continuous coil mattress is a beginner model where you will feel transfer of motion, meaning if your partner moves, you feel it. To cut down on this, Devoe suggests a pocket coil mattress. Since the coils aren’t interconnected, you won’t feel as much shifting. The best type of mattress is one with firm support and a lot of coils.
Latex and foam models don’t have coils but are still good options. They are flexible and easy to move around. A foam mattress is also great for allergy sufferers, especially if it’s mildew and dust-resistant.
The comfort level is based on the number of layers on the mattress top. These range from no extra layers to ones that add several inches of height. Want to feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud? Try a euro pillow top. Remember that a mattress top can be soft and still support you.
