Things to Consider When Buying a Mattress

Oftentimes when we talk about the health of an individual, we tend to undermine the importance of sleep in determining the overall health. For an individual to be healthy, they have to not only be physically fit but also mentally and “sleep” fit. Sleep plays a vital role in keeping an individual in good health and helping them to lead a happy and energetic life. According to sleep researchers, young adults (age 18-25 years) and adults (age 26-64 years) should receive 7 to 9 hours of sleep but not less than 6 hours or more than 10 hours (for adults) or 11 hours (for young adults). Older adults (65 years and older) should receive 7 to 8 hours of sleep but not less than 5 hours or more than 9 hours. Considering how essential sleep is to the human body and mind, the choice of the mattress plays an important role. The quality of the sleeping surface determines the quality of sleep. Therefore, the best mattress means the best sleep.

There are many things to consider when buying a mattress. The most important thing to consider is your own comfort. As mattresses can be your support system, providing comfort to your whole body, you need to mainly focus on factors like the type of materials used in the mattress, size, and firmness. It should neither be too soft nor too hard. The perfect firmness offers a perfect balance and support, keeping the natural spinal alignment and body posture in place, thus significantly enhancing the quality of sleep. Every person’s body is different and thus, they require a mattress that is comfortable to their body.

What type of mattress do you need?

There are two common types of mattresses: innerspring and foam. Innerspring Mattresses are primarily made of spring coils that form the core of their support structure and are generally fortified with a border wire which helps retain its shape. These are very popular mattresses. The number of coils that may be present in the innerspring mattress largely depends on the size of the mattress and mostly varies from 300-800. More the coil, more the comfort. If you prefer a firmer base, you need to go with a foam mattress. They are capable of absorbing shocks and vibrations to a great extent and also respond to body temperature and warmth, ambient temperatures, softening with heat and more easily adjusting to body contours.
