We all love the feeling of having an amazingly comfortable mattress. I know that after having an especially tough work day, it’s really nice to know that I’m going to jump into a really comfortable bed that will put me to sleep and keep me asleep through the night. The positive effects of having a great, comfortable mattress are plentiful and undeniable. So is there anything wrong with having a really comfortable mattress?
There’s really only one thing I can think of. At first, you might think the mattress is so comfortable that you want to spend a lot of time in it and not just for sleeping. Maybe you want to start reading while sitting in your bed or maybe you want to watch tv from your bed because it’s so comfy. While I totally understand wanting to do this, spending so much time in bed can actually have a detrimental effect on your ability to get to sleep. Your body will start to make associations with the mattress and doing things while awake. The science is becoming more and more clear each year that it is better to save your bed for just sleep. Try to avoid spending extra time in your mattress. An ideal situation is that you spend all of your day away from your mattress and then only jump in when you’re ready to go to bed.
It’s kind of a funny effect of buying a great mattress. If it’s that comfortable, you will want to spend more and more time in it. But, if spending too much time in it can hurt your ability to sleep well, then you should just be aware of this and make sure to minimize the time you spend in your mattress outside of sleeping.
The goal of mattress buying is to get an amazingly comfortable bed that is also supportive. Hopefully the advice on my site helps you reach that goal. Just make sure to avoid spending too much time in the mattress when you’re not trying to sleep!
