Everyone loves to sleep. We know this. At the end of a long day, there’s nothing quite like curling up with your soft sheets and cushiony comforter… unless you have a crappy mattress.
This was my predicament several months ago. Mike was struggling with our old mattress and complained about his back hurting every day, so we sold the mattress we were sleeping on and switched to using a high-quality air mattress with an extra layer of cushion on it. This actually worked for about 5 months. It was firm and offered support for Mike’s back, and we were paying for a wedding so it wasn’t like we could afford a new mattress anyways.
The wedding came and went and Mike decided he could no longer handle sleeping on the air mattress. So we decided to invest in a brand new Serta iSeries Plush. And believe you me, it has made a world of difference!
Even though the mattress was more for Mike than me, we have both started sleeping better and back pain has subsided. Of course, you can read about the effects of a good mattress everywhere, but we refused to buy one simply because we were so broke. When we finally got the opportunity to buy a high-quality mattress and bed from my employer, we jumped on it. I received the benefit of buying everything AT COST, so I couldn’t pass it up. I saved about 60% on both items.
According to WebMD, the wrong mattress can support the wrong pressure points on your body (or not support the right ones). It’s not a matter of just how soft or firm a mattress is.
I’m not here to tell you what kind of mattress you should buy. I’m here to tell you that the right mattress can change your life. It can stop the pain you feel every morning. It can relieve daily stress. It could help with your allergies. The effects are surreal.
So do yourself a favor today and splurge on a great mattress for yourself.
