How Your Bed Affects Your Sleep

On average, we spend around a third of our lives asleep, and we require a fair amount comfort and support to make this possible. A mattress that is old or cheap will not provide you with the necessary support required to prevent any aches and pains, nor will it provide the comfort required to improve the overall quality of your sleep, so it may be time for you to invest in a bed that will give you a great night’s sleep every single night.

According to the Sleep Census, 46% of people wake up in the night due to an uncomfortable bed. This means that nearly half of all people in the 5 countries that were surveyed are not getting a good night’s sleep due to something as fundamental as their bed. People with good quality sleep see many benefits, such as improved mental performance, sped-up weight loss and reduced stress levels. They are also able to fight off illness better and will have improved relationships with friends, family and co-workers.

The sturdiness of your mattress is often discussed when talking about the quality of sleep, however this is completely down to personal preference as comfort is subjective between people. We’d recommend that you go and test a few out and find your perfect match!

Mattresses feel the best when they are supported by a good quality bed frame. The frame will provide further support and prevent any sagging of the mattress, allowing it to perform as well as it possibly can.

Further to having an improved mattress and bed frame, there are some ways to help your brain switch off: when trying to sleep, you should ensure that your room is as dark as possible, and you should also have switched off all electronic devices about an hour before bed. It is also recommended that you do not work from your bed as this can cause the brain to associate the two things and not allow your brain to switch off at night.
