What Is The Best Mattress For Me?

Should I sleep on a firm mattress, a soft mattress, a coil mattress, a spring mattress, one that pops out of a box or a memory foam mattress?

Hi guys.

Dr Brad here and I get asked these questions all the time. And if you are wondering the same thing, I am going to try and help you out with this today.

The answer to this question is honestly; “I do not know?” I have no idea what type of mattress would be best for you.

But this is what I do know… the best mattress for you would meet these 3 criteria;

1-you get 8 to 10 hours of sound, deep sleep.

2-you do not toss and turn; you sleep in the same position pretty much the entire time.

3- you feel well rested and refreshed when you get up; you are not sore, achy or stiff and it doesn’t take you 10 minutes to get to walking upright.

So, the trick is how do you find such a mattress?

My best recommendation would be this; when you are ready to purchase a new mattress, purchase from a mattress store that will offer you a trial period.

Some will offer you a 120 night trial period for you to try it out. That way you will know if the one you purchased works for you, or if you need to change the design or go firmer or go softer etc.

Now what about if you do not sleep alone?

Often times your partner will have different mattress requirements than you will. In this circumstance you can get a split mattress where one side is designed specifically for your partner and the other side is designed specifically for you.

There is always a cost factor to consider but sleep is important for many things so it’s a wise investment.

And a good and proper mattress will always have more longevity.

Next time we will talk about sleeping posture and pillows.
