Healthy sleeping with a right mattress for you

By Laurie Blackford Subscribe to RSS | March 17th 2012 | Views:

Do you normally get up in the morning with stiffness or tiredness? You feel drained the whole day and are weary. These are the basic symptoms someone feels when they are deprived of sleep. The problems related to lack of sleep are not only physical but psychological too. When you are not properly rested, your mind is not alert and you cannot concentrate on the work in hand. Sleep deprivation can cause many health related issues. It can be harmful in many other ways also.

In most of the cases it has been seen that it happens due to an uncomfortable mattress. The word mattress is derived from an Arabic word “matrah” which literally means ‘to throw down’ or ‘a place where something is thrown’. Basically it is a product to sleep/lie on. It is a very important piece of furniture which is directly related to our health. Its core is to support a sleeper’s body.

Earlier they were filled with straws, feathers or even animal hair but now they are made with materials like latex, viscoelastic and even polyurethane foam. Its thickness ranges from 4-18 inches according to one’s preferences. There are basically three types of mattresses, firm which is for people who generally sleep on their stomach and sometimes on their back. A softer one is for those who are side sleepers and medium for majority of back sleepers.

They are covered with upholstery which provides cushioning and comfort. A mattress is a support layer and the mattresses cover is a comfort layer. A cover protects it against direct spill; it even shields us from molds and bacteria. A double cloth cover is suitable for allergy sufferers. The cover should be comfortable as only a bed sheet separates the cover from the sleeper.

There are certain parameters to check the quality of a mattress namely pressure distribution, skin micro climate, hygiene, edge support and long term stability. A quality mattress should last between 7-10 years. You know it is time to change it when it contributes to your body pain and stiffness. A visibly sagging and deformed one also needs to be replaced.

A clean bed is a part of our personal hygiene. A mattress can be vacuumed or washed with a mild surface cleaner. By having a cover on, it will be easier to remove and wash it.

We spend one-third of our life in bed. It should make us feel rejuvenated and relaxed and not exhausted.
