A very good question that I am going to answer for you today is … “what kind of mattress should I sleep on?”.
There is no one answer to this question as every body type is different and therefore requires a different mattress.
But I do have a few good pointers for you to follow.
If you cannot get 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep or you are waking up with pain and stiffness or both, then your current mattress is not giving you adequate support.
You should be able to sleep comfortably for 7 to 8 hours and wake up feeling well-rested and limber having moved very little throughout the night if you are on the right mattress.
And it does not matter if you are on a coil mattress, a spring mattress, an air-bed, a waterbed or a futon – this should always be the case.
Now of course, we can never discount a spinal problem or improper sleeping posture as these can often times result in restless sleeping patterns and morning pain and stiffness.
So my best advice to you would be to look into these things first before investing in a brand new mattress.
