There’s no better feeling than crawling into your comfy bed after a long, stressful day and getting a good night’s sleep. But what if the bed isn’t comfortable at all? What if it is your bed that causes you the stress and lack of energy the whole day? Having a poor mattress could be the reason why you’re tossing and turning all night. Most people think upgrading their mattress is a luxury when it’s vital to get better sleep quality and reap all its benefits.
If you’re still waiting for your mattress to wear out before you replace it, here are some of the things you’re missing out on with a high-quality mattress that may compel you to purchase a new one.
1. Say Goodbye to Allergies
Do you greet each day with a case of sneezing and stuffy nose? Not having a high-quality mattress can trigger your pre-existing allergies, or develop one, even if you’ve never had it before. Mattresses are a hospitable environment for dust mites, pests, and germs which can be the cause of a constant sneeze-fest along with an itchy throat and watery eyes. It’s particularly problematic for those with asthma or other respiratory problems. You can also have other reactions to the accumulation of dust, including skin rashes and acne. You can say goodbye to all that sneezing and replace it with snoozing when you switch to a high-quality mattress with a dense structure that doesn’t have room for these nasty dust mites!
2. Stress Reliever
The International Sleep Products Association’s Better Sleep Council conducted a survey to assess the relationship between stress and sleep. The results showed that 65% of participants are sleep deprived due to stress while 16% experience stress-related insomnia. The participants then went on to try new, better mattresses than their own for a month and came back with significantly lowered stress and insomnia levels. We can gather from this study that mattress quality affects sleep quality, which in turn reduces stress hormones and lowers blood pressure. Whether you suffer from mild stress or an anxiety disorder, it’s strongly advised to start considering buying a new mattress.
3. Spine Therapy
It is common for people who don’t lead an active lifestyle to suffer from poor posture caused by sitting or standing too long in uncomfortable positions. A suitable mattress can help improve your spine alignment by supporting all parts of your body with even weight distribution. Without it, your lower back will lack the needed support for the spine to be in its natural position. Choosing a high-quality mattress brand and type will go a long way in improving your posture. It’s important to do sufficient research before springing for a new mattress that will ‘have your back’. If you’re contemplating when buying mattresses, you’ll want to look for a product with durable memory foam stuffing. Most Keetsa mattresses of this kind last up to twelve years, which is longer than the standard of ten years you get with other generic mattresses. This is especially convenient if you want something that is both practical and long-lasting without completely emptying your wallet.
4. Snoring Antidote
Is your partner always complaining about your loud snoring keeping them up all night? Sleeping on a low-quality mattress can have your body sinking into it, which causes conflict with involuntary movements during sleep and leads to snoring. Snoring is caused by the partial restriction of your upper airway passage, which can be due to the lack of support to your neck and head while sleeping. Dust mites can also add to the problem, but a good mattress that provides sufficient support will allow better movement and improve your breathing, eliminating your snoring issue.
5. Pain Remedy
Waking up with stiff joints or a strained neck is all too familiar for those without a good mattress. However, it should not be a normal occurrence. Back, neck and joint pain can also cause the worst headaches and ruin a whole’s day productivity, or put you in a sour mood. There are specially-designed mattresses for those who tend to wake up with aches or have specific injuries. They apply just the right amount of pressure on weak spots which will have you waking up pain-free. Even without any current strain or injury, a good memory foam mattress, for example, will prevent any future stiffness and have you waking up more rejuvenated than ever.
Investing in a high-quality mattress that lasts a long time is an investment in your physical and mental well-being. Having a sound sleep every night will save you a ton of doctor’s appointments and physical therapy sessions. You’ll be looking forward to sinking into a comfy mattress that makes you forget all about the day’s troubles. It’ll also be your secret weapon that helps you conquer each day with energy and strength.
