4 Ways to Make Your Old Mattress More Comfortable

By Brett E. / August 25, 2018

Arguably one of the biggest factors in getting a good night’s sleep is the quality of your mattress. Mattresses are difficult to buy because they take some time to break in, so you don’t know how good they are going to be until about 90 days after you start sleeping on it. So what do you do if you find that you’ve ended up with a dud? There are a number of ways to make your mattress more comfortable, so you can get a great sleep.

1. Add a Mattress Topper

Mattress TopperYou might never have considered using a mattress topper in your life, but these simple devices can make all the difference to the amount of sleep you get. No matter what size your mattress is, be it a twin, full size, queen size or king, you’ll find a range of options for mattress toppers. They vary a lot in price, with down toppers costing the most, but you’ll find that these toppers, such as the ones found on beddingnbeyond, make you feel like you’re sleeping in clouds. A lot of mattresses are sold with toppers attached, so next time you’re on the market for a mattress, make sure you take a topper into consideration so you can sleep in the most comfort.

2. Use a Body Pillow

If you are anything like me, your sleeping position is a sort of stretched outside-stomach maneuver. This can cause extreme pain or discomfort for your entire day if you find that you’ve pinched or put pressure on a nerve all night. Not to mention how much it can hurt your neck if you don’t have the right type of pillow. A body pillow is a welcome addition for those who need to sleep on their side. By placing the bottom of it between your legs, you are straightening your spine while you sleep. Your whole body will rest in a natural position so that when you wake up you don’t feel any aches and pains. Also, by sleeping on your side, you reduce snoring and drastically help any sleep apnea problems you might have.

3. Invest in a Memory foam Pillow

A great pillow that is suited to your sleep style means the difference between tossing and turning all night and a peaceful, relaxing sleep. But how do you know what kind of pillow is right for you? No matter how you sleep, a memory foam pillow can help you ease the tension in your neck and shoulders as you sleep. A good memory foam pillow can mold to your shape and cradle your head so that you’re not bent in unnatural positions all night.

4. Cool Down with a Gel Mattress Protector

If you live in a warm climate then you’re no stranger to trying to keep cool as you sleep. It often feels like there is no relief. But have you ever tried a mattress protector that contains a gel insert? They are amazing, as they help cushion the space between you and the mattress. Not only that, but it provides supreme comfort all night long.

Getting a great night’s sleep can be something we all struggle to achieve, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many things you can change in your sleeping arrangement in order to feel more comfortable and enable yourself to get a better sleep. By investing in one of these additions to your bedroom, you’ll give your old, uncomfortable mattress a whole new lease on life.
