How to Pick a Mattress

Sleep is so vital for your health. If you have high cholesterol, sleep becomes even more critical. Many sleep problems have been linked to elevated triglycerides and low HDL levels. Both too little and too much sleep have been linked to many health problems. There are many ways to improve your sleep — things like reading in bed, bedtime rituals and no screens late at night. However, the importance of a mattress that is right for you is rarely discussed.

It can be hard to know when your mattress is to blame for bad sleep, but your body can give you signs beyond a poor night’s sleep. “If you wake up in the morning and have some low back pain and can stretch and get rid of it in 15 or 30 minutes, that means you’re on an inappropriate mattress for you,” said Michael Breus an expert on sleep at WebMD. The right mattress for you should make you feel almost like you’re floating in the air because of the lack of pressure on any part of your body.

As the years pass, our bodies and health needs change. A mattress that felt great when we bought it can be all wrong for us a few years later. Although modern mattresses are built to last, you should think about getting a new one every seven to eight years — especially if you don’t feel as good as you used to. Additionally, mattresses can gather dust mites and fungus over the years that can disturb your breathing patterns.

So, how do you pick the right mattress? First, it’s important to consider the cost. Mattresses can be incredibly expensive, even when they’re not great. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a mattress — even though it’s easy to do so — because of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, you can often save a lot of money if you hit a sale. We prefer Cyber Monday because it’s far less hassle and it gets delivered instead of needing to think about transport.

The biggest advice we can give is to shop around. Nowadays, there are so many options: innerspring, memory foam, latex, air mattress, waterbed, pillowtop and more. People will say that one is perfect that might not be for you. As with everything in life, you need to find the one that is right for you. Of course, reviews can help you narrow it down. If a mattress is widely reviled online, there’s little point in trying it. Go to a store near you and try your options for yourself. Also, look for deals with a 90-day money-back guarantee. We offer a money-back guarantee on BergaOne because it doesn’t work for everyone’s physiology. A mattress won’t work for everyone either, so make sure there is a guarantee that you can try it for an extended period before being tied to it. After all, trying one out for fifteen minutes in a store is not the same as sleeping on it nightly.

Your sleep position can also be a significant factor when picking a mattress. People who sleep on their sides usually benefit from a softer mattress; people who sleep flat do better with something firmer. Your weight can also be a factor; people who weigh more than 200 pounds will sleep better on a firmer mattress while people below that may be better off with something soft.

We hope that you’re already enjoying a good night’s sleep. If not, we hope these steps will help you pick a new mattress that is right for you.
