08 Jan Changing Your Bed To Transform Your Life
Did you know that an average person spends an entire one-third of his or her life, asleep? This means that changing the quality of your sleep would transform one-third of your life. It might even impact your whole life!
When we are awake, we have the opportunity to change positions or stretch our muscles whenever we feel uncomfortable or tired. However, when asleep, we are subjected to our mattresses. Mattresses are an essential item for sleeping because it aids in regulating our posture when we are sleeping. Therefore, the quality of your mattress largely affects the quality of your life.
Here’s how you can transform your life by making changes in your bedroom:
Check if Your Mattress is Old
Mattresses are a part of the home products that have a long lifespan. However, they are not meant to last for a lifetime. A good-quality queen size mattress in Singapore should last you about eight years. However, sometimes we compromise quality for price or don’t take care of our mattresses. Therefore, mattresses can age faster than the manufacturer’s expectations.
Sleeping on an old mattress that either cannot support your body weight or align your back correctly, can cause back pain. An old mattress full of dust mites can also cause more problems like allergic reactions.
Check if your mattress is in tip-top condition. If you suffer from recurrent back pain or morning itchy eyes and blocked nose, your old mattress might be the problem. Some advice? Change it!
Check if Your Mattress Suits Your Sleeping Style
Do you have a relatively new mattress, yet still experience sleepless nights that are unexplainable?
The chances are high that your mattress does not suit your sleeping style; be it on your back, tummy or on the side.
Tummy sleepers need a firmer mattress than side sleepers or back sleepers as it prevents their lower backs from arching. Side sleepers should avoid extra firm mattresses as your body unconsciously rotates to an awkward position to support itself.
Determine the kind of sleeper you are. Consult your physician about possible mattress changes that’ll transform your life and give you the good night’s sleep you deserve.
Check if Your Mattress is Best for Your back Condition
Eight out of ten adult Singaporeans experience back pain. Most of these cases are caused by lifestyle complications and bad body positioning when we work or sleep.
Could your mattress be causing or exacerbating back pain? A good mattress should support the natural curvature of the spine and the joints sufficiently, to avoid joint pain and muscle soreness.
Sleep experts in Singapore agree that medium-firm mattresses can help relieve back pain and muscle soreness. A medium-firm memory foam mattress is best for you, especially if you are having chronic back pain.
Lastly, Does Your Mattress Cause Allergies?
Do you wake up with itchy eyes, blocked nasal passages, and incessant sneezing? Your mattress could be what’s causing your morning sicknesses.
Transform your life by investing in a hypoallergenic mattress and bedding products that’ll keep away dust mites. Mattresses made from organic materials such as latex mattresses in Singapore can transform your night and in turn, change your life.
