Did you know that we spend a third of our lives sleeping? For this reason, it is crucial to choose the ideal mattress for us. There is nothing worse than waking up with back pain and feeling like we had a bad night of sleep! For a healthy and energetic day, we all need a comfortable and restful rest.
Although nothing invalidates going through one of our Colunex stores and receiving personalized service, in this article we want to give you some tips on how to choose the perfect mattress for you!
1 – The correct support of the body depends on several factors.
Your weight, height, build and even your preferred sleeping position will influence the choice of your mattress.
Ideally, the mattress should be molded to the shape of your body, always offering the correct body support. For example, when lying on your side, your spine should be aligned.
- Very soft: sloppy body, unaligned column;
- Very hard: body not relaxed, existing tension and pressure points;
- Ideal firmness: mattress supports and follows the contours of the body, keeping the spine aligned.
2 – Comfort is very subjective.
Some people like the feeling of being involved and “buried” in bed; others prefer to stay “on top”. Generally, people who sleep on their backs prefer firmer mattresses than people who sleep on their sides.
Final tip: lie on your back and slide your hand down the hollow of your back.
A good way to check if the mattress you are lying on is too soft, too hard or ideal, is to lie on your back and slide your hand down the hollow of your back.
If it slides very easily, it means that there is considerable space between the mattress and your back. In this case, the mattress may be too hard for you, creating pressure on your hips and shoulders. If the hand is difficult to slide, the mattress is probably too soft. This means that the ideal is to be able to move your hand, albeit with a little resistance.
