Do you often wake feeling unrested and sore? If so, you may have wondered if your mattress is providing the support you need for restful sleep. Is your mattress too firm or too soft?
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to figure out how to make a firm mattress softer or your soft mattress firm, sometimes we are so focused on the mattress itself we forget there is a whole support system that drastically affects the quality of the mattress. It matters what foundation you use for your specific mattress. For instance foam mattresses should never be used with box springs; however, a box spring mattress can make other types of mattresses feel soft and springier. Making sure you are using the correct foundation for your mattress is key.
Another thing to keep in mind is that firmness is not the same as support. This is an important point to emphasize. Support refers to how well a mattress promotes spinal alignment. Firmness refers to the comfort feel of the mattress and how hard or soft it is. While there can be a relationship between the two, it is helpful to think about them separately. A mattress that offers pressure point relief and keeps the spine in proper positioning is supportive regardless of how hard or soft that mattress is. While firmness can be highly subjective, support is not.
For some, the perfect mattress just does not exist – and that's OK. If you've found yourself with a new mattress that is pretty good, but is just not quite as firm you'd like, there are several things you can do (inexpensively) to make your mattress more firm.
If you are using the correct foundation, but are still having trouble getting comfortable for sleep, consider adding a memory foam mattress topper.
The Gel Fusion memory foam topper is made with thoroughly tested memory foam that helps eliminate nervous tension caused from common head, neck, and shoulder pain, which frequently keeps you awake and unrested. This gel-infused luxury will help lull you into the needed sleep you are craving, as well as providing additional support.
Perhaps you would like a little aromatherapy with your topper. The Lavender Bliss memory foam topper has been lightly infused with natural lavender oil odorants to ensure a clean and fresh long-lasting aroma. Concerned about the potential of a heavy perfume smell? Don’t be. This fragrance is natural. Lavender has long been known for its natural sleep aid properties, and these calming scented benefits can help you find the restful night’s sleep you have been dreaming of. The combination of more support and lavender may be your ticket to all night comfort.
A memory foam topper is an economical solution for achieving better support from your current mattress. You could be getting the blissful sleep that you have been longing for from a simple addition to your bedroom.
