You want your bed to be the most comfy and cosy place to be in your home. You spend a lot of time in it, so it is worth having it be lovely. If you lose sleep due to your bed being uncomfortable, then it can have consequences. They will be negative consequences that can impact your life.
If is important to note that when it comes to sleep, it is not just the amount of sleep that you get, but the quality of it. As any mum of little ones will know, broken up sleep is just not the same!
So if your bed isn’t in tip top shape in the comfort department, there are several things that you can do. It is all a lot easier than you might think too. Making your bed super comfy will improve your sleep first and foremost. It can also improve things like posture too, putting less strain on your muscles. Yay to lots of sleep and no aches!
Get a New Mattress
One of the first things you should do is to get a new mattress. You should replace your mattress, at least, every six years so think about how long you have had your current one. Six years flies by faster than you think! If you have quite a low-quality mattress at the moment, though, it could need replacing sooner than six years.
When you are choosing a mattress, you need to be selective about the softness of it. The majority of people are better off with a more firm mattress, rather than a super soft one. A mattress that is very soft can affect your posture and could be the starting cause of back problems. Try a few out and see what feels best for you and your partner. You could try out a luxury double mattresses by John Ryan by design. You want a good quality one that will last a while.
Get New Bedding
I don’t think I’ve met anyone that does not love that just got in bed feeling when there are fresh sheets on the bed. New sheets feel so crisp and smooth, it is lovely. Our old sheets can get quite worn out over time and lose their smooth and comfortable feeling. The best fabric to go for is Egyptian cotton as it is luxurious but soft. It is affordable too. If you are feeling extra fancy, you could go for silk bedding. You should aim to replace your bed sheets every few months for greatest comfort.
Plump Your Pillows
You could replace your pillows but it might not be necessary. One thing to get in the habit of doing is plumping your pillows, at least, every other day. It makes your pillow soft for when you get into bed. It can also preserve the life of the pillow, making it last longer. You could get a few smaller cushions to have by your pillow too. Nothing better than getting into bed to read, with lots of soft cushions to prop you up or rest your head on.
