Start Everyday with a Good Night’s Sleep…
A good night’s sleep, just like proper diet and exercise, is essential to your mental, emotional and physical health. Yet many people just do not get the recommended amount of sleep needed each night to perform their best during the day.
Instead they sacrifice sleep and wake up to the consequences, including difficulty concentrating, irritability, weakened immune system and even higher stress. The good news it that it does not have to be this way.
Better sleep can be as simple as sleeping on a better mattress!
The right mattress for a great night’s sleep is the one that meets your personal needs for comfort and support. But before you start shopping for a new mattress, you will need to know some bedding basics. With some general mattress information on the variety of choices available, it will be easier to choose the right bed for you- and get a great night’s sleep.
The most widely purchased type of bedding uses the support of tempered steel coils in a variety of configurations. Varying types and layers of upholstery provide insulation and cushioning between your body and the spring unit, resulting in a range of comfort choices.
Solid foam mattresses also offer a wide choice of sleeping sensations or “feels.” They can be made of a solid core or of several layers of different types of foam laminated together. Advanced technology in the new visco-elastic (“memory”) foams have added to the choice of comfort, support and performance.
Airbeds are now designed to look like the familiar mattress/foundation (boxspring) combination, with an air filled core providing the support instead of an innerspring or foam core. These designs offer a range of “feels” and typically are adjustable to suit individual sleeper’s needs.
Two people sleeping on a full sized (“double”) mattress only have as much personal sleeping space as a baby in a crib. Here are the standard mattress size dimensions:
California King 72″ x 84″
King 76″ x 80″
Queen 60″ x 80″
Full (Double) 53″ x 75″
Twin 38″ x 75″
Sleeping is literally the foundation of your life. It’s important to make an overall commitment to healthy, restorative sleep.
