Sleep problems plague millions of Americans each year, and the truth is that many of these issues can be resolved by changing our sleeping environment. Few people realize how big of an impact our mattress quality and type have on our overall sleep patterns. That’s why we’re going to walk through five of the most common complaints we hear, and possible solutions.
While there are tons of medical devices and products claiming to help reduce snoring, one of the simplest ways to reduce snoring is to change your sleeping position. Sleeping on your side instead of on your back tends to alleviate snoring, and just about any memory foam mattress is good for giving your body plenty of support in this position.
Constant back pain is another common complaint, often stemming from poor-quality spring mattresses that have begun breaking down. With the help of a pillow top mattress or memory foam, it is possible to get better sleep support while taking away many of the pressure points that springs cause.
Research indicates that we sleep better when our bodies are kept a little bit cooler than normal. Modern gel-infused memory foam mattresses are perfect for those who struggle with overheating because they allow air to flow through the mattress. The gel transfers heat away from the body.
If you find yourself tossing and turning every night, unable to fall back asleep, it’s time for a mattress upgrade. It’s possible that your mattress may be too soft or too firm for you to get comfortable. The best thing to do is to lay on a variety of different mattresses to find the ideal firmness to give you support without being too hard.
If your partner is restless in bed, you may find that their movements are transferred through the mattress to your body. This tends to be worse in regular spring mattresses that don’t have any padding to dampen the movements. Moving to a larger bed and a memory foam mattress is usually sufficient enough to reduce sleep disruptions caused by your partner.
