Although we all like to relax on our mattress when we are tired, is our mattress still able to relax us as well as it used to or has it gotten old and uncomfortable? All too often we wake up with aches and pains and may blame an activity we did the previous day for our pain but often it is the mattress which is at fault. When was the last time we changed our mattress? When was the last time we were able to get a full night’s rest, sleeping the whole night without tossing and turning? Too many of us take our mattress for granted, not even considering that it may be the cause of many of our woes and instead turn to it for comfort. We spend one third of our lives on our mattress and yet we may it less attention than we would a car which we may only use a couple of hours a day. OK the car may help us to get to work but the mattress can affect the way we perform once we reach and so should be paid equal attention.
The real problem is that although most of do realize that our mattress is no longer as comfortable as it should be in order to afford us the good night’s sleep we deserve, we think that the cost of a new, comfortable mattress is too high and so we make do with what we have. One solution to this could be that instead of buying a new mattress, we only buy a mattress topper as a mattress topper can be so relaxing, perhaps just as relaxing as a new mattress. Most modern mattresses have two layers, a thick layer at the bottom and a thinner layer on top and that is why they are so expensive but if you were to just add another layer in the form of a mattress topper, the comfort can return to your old mattress and yet not cost as much as a new mattress would. The bottom thicker layer of the mattress is needed as that is what supports the weight of your body and the upper layer is there to provide the comfort. It is usually the comfort of the mattress which has been lost and not the support and so new upper layer is all that is needed. Obviously we all have different preferences as to what we consider a comfortable mattress and so there are many different types available but that variety is also available in mattress toppers and so we can still choose a topper that will afford us the most comfort. A mattress topper is all we often need to allow us to once again sleep soundly at night and wake up refreshed and feeling good, ready to face whatever problems that day may have in store for us. We may even find that the extra comfort means we can spend less time in bed and so have more time for social pursuits.
