Ever wonder why sleep at a classy hotel has always been good and better than anywhere else? Well, the reason could be that the hotel was extra careful when purchasing their bedding, especially the mattresses and pillows. But it shouldn’t be that way, should it? However, the fact is that many people still do not know the effects a pillow and mattress can have on their fatigued and achy bodies every time they go to sleep.
This article and the Sleep Advisor seeks to clear the air about the myth surrounding pillows and mattresses and expose why the right ones can give you good sleep.
Do pillows and mattresses matter?
There is an ancient myth that what matters in getting a good sleep is the sleeper and their state of health. This myth also draws its argument from the fact that our ancestors slept on hard surfaces and that at some point, pillows were inexistent, yet they still enjoyed their sleep.
Well, that might be true, but what the holders of this myth need to understand is that times have changed and that the people of long ago had no option but to sleep on sacks, patios, or on the floor. Additionally, the innovation of new mattresses and pillows is only as a result of the perfection of the sleep.
Physical and mental benefits
If you want to wake up every morning feeling fresh, and humming to new tunes in your mind, the only trick is to change your pillow and mattress for the right ones. Physically, the right ones will relieve you of fatigue, pains, and aches, keep you away from common illnesses such as asthma, and improve your weight.
Mentally, the right pillow and mattress will most importantly sooth you to a deep slumber. This means that even if you have problems going to sleep, the right pillow and mattress are an ideal solution. And a good night sleep translates to other mental benefits, including; reduced stress levels, improved mood, sound judgment, and a sharp concentration.
So, which is the right Pillow and Mattress for that Good Night Sleep?
First, the best mattress should be spongy, yet firm, such that it will revert to its normal shape when you come out of bed. As for pillows, these mainly depend on the sleeping style. It is imperative that you first identify your style, that is whether you sleep on the side, on the stomach, or on your back. For the most common style- sleeping on the side, the right pillow should have a high density, and wide enough to support both the head and the neck.
In a nutshell, if you want to have a good sleep, if you have problems sleeping, and if you are always tired at night and want to wake up with renewed energy, you should start by ensuring that your pillows and mattress are the right ones.…
