Better Sleep: Increase Support And Comfort

Sleeping is something that has always bothered us as human beings – if we don’t get enough we’re grumpy; if we get too much we’re drowsy. It is essential for us to get the right amount of sleep in per day and it is actually very easy to do so. Support and comfort play a very important role in the way we sleep and are largely dependent on the type of mattress or bed we buy and use. A new bed or a new mattress has to be perfect for your body, but many people are unsure of how to get the best comfort and support. The Sleep Shop is here to help you find the right mattress for your needs.

When you buy a mattress or buy a bed you need to keep a few things in mind. The most important is that this is going to be the object that supports your body for the next 8 hours. Imagine spending 8 hours on a rock – you would be stiff all over by the end of it! There are many ways in which you can further increase the support and comfort of your bed or mattress and here are a few tips that you might use.


This is an obvious element to the bed that needs to be adjusted accordingly. Many people sleep with poor pillows and they end up having to stack 2, 3, or sometimes 4 pillows on top of each other to get some form of support. This could have detrimental effects on the neck and spinal area. Rather invest in a proper pillow that won’t lose its shape after a week of sleeping on it. Memory foam pillows or feather pillows work great in this regard. Even though they may be a bit expensive in the beginning, you are making an investment in your health.


Another factor that can influence comfort is the clothing that you wear to bed. It has to be comfortable for you to get the best sleep out of a cycle. The best material would be cotton because it is soft and neutral, and it comes in a wide range of colors. Many people prefer to sleep naked, but if you do you need to make sure that you are totally comfortable with this and your body. During the summertime avoid things like silk or organza because it has a tendency to cling to you and you don’t want to wake up every 2 seconds having to adjust yourself.


Now we come to the mattress itself. Only you will know what you prefer but it is advisable for you to seek a specialist. Many people prefer memory foam mattresses because they can’t feel the vibrations of the other person’s movements, but then again other people feel like spring bedding gives extra support. Different mattresses have different benefits so it is up to you to decide which one is better for your body and will give you the most out of your sleeping routine. We are here to help you find that right solution at The Sleep Shop.
