Nap, Snore, Snooze, or Dead to the world – What is your sleeping position? Well, whether you spend your hours lying on the bed wishing for sleep to come, or you immediately doze off into a sound sleep – the way you sleep matters a lot for your overall well-being.
Everyone has a preferred position to sleep to reach that comfort zone at night. However, not everyone realizes that their sleeping pattern might be wrong and can cause long-term damage to the spine, mind or increase back pains or joint pains.
It’s time to take your sleeping pattern seriously and take the necessary measures to promote restful, restorative slumber. The first step towards it is to choose a specific mattress that compliments your sleep position. Here is how to choose the right mattress:
- Side Sleepers
The majority of the people sleep on their left or right side. This is the optimal sleeping position. The primary consideration for side sleepers is a firmer mattress that provides proper level support to their pressure points. A medium-firm memory foam mattress with adequate cushioning of the body contours or even a hybrid mattress with multiple layers is an excellent choice.
- Back Sleepers
It’s an age-old saying, have back pain? Sleep on your back to keep it straight! Even while sleeping, go on a Saavdhaan mode! Back sleeping pattern is beneficial for your spinal alignment as it doesn’t force the body into any dramatic bending or flexing, thus, reducing future back problems. Back sleeping requires keeping the spine intact, which will be supported on a latex or orthopedic mattress. The perfect cushioning and the springy action for that extra support.
- Stomach Sleepers
Sleeping on your tummy puts pressure on your chest and lungs – hence, this is not an ideal position to sleep. You would require a memory foam mattress that does not push you into the bed but molds and contours to your body shape without being too firm and causing discomfort. This would not put on any pressure on your stomach, back, or other body parts.
- Combination Sleepers –
People who change positions throughout the night and usually sleep on their side or back are combination sleepers. A medium-firm mattress or a hybrid combination with a layer of memory foam, latex, or gel would offer just the right blend of comfort and support. This is also best for people who have allergies or who overheat at night.
It turns out that having a good night’s rest, just shutting your eyes, is not enough. You need a good sleep routine and a proper mattress to support that to wake up ready to take on the day. So, now for the next few days, pay extra close attention to how you sleep. This will help you find the best-suited mattress.
