The Importance of a Good Mattress

Ahhh…sleep. It’s a beautiful thing… except when it’s not. In our fast-paced world, a good night’s sleep can be elusive. It seems our bodies and minds are losing the art of slowing down in preparation for a restful slumber. Add medical issues like sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and everyday aches and pains and you can understand why this is a chronic modern day problem.

    While a new mattress may not be a miracle cure, it is a very important piece to the sleep puzzle. We’ve all heard that we spend a third of our lives in bed. Consider this perspective as well: there is no single place where we spend as much time. It may seem like we spend more time in our cars, sofas, desks, or recliners, but we don’t. Knowing this fact can change our priorities when we make an investment in a mattress. There are many places to save money, but our mattresses are not where we should compromise. Experts recommend buying the highest quality mattress set you can afford.
    This is not just a lifestyle choice, but a health choice. Waking up refreshed from restorative sleep affects all aspects of life. Improving the quality of sleep will add energy to the day, stabilize mood, and in turn allow us to better handle everyday stress, and who doesn’t want that?
    Martin’s Home Furniture has an exceptional selection of mattresses ranging from Sealy, Stearnes & Foster for traditional innerspring mattresses, to Tempurpedic for foam mattresses. Each brand also has their version of hybrid mattresses which incorporate innersprings on the bottom two-thirds with memory foam on the top one-third. “The Sealy Hybrid is by far our top-selling mattress,” says owner Brad Martin. “It was recently rated #1 Best Hybrid by a leading consumer publication.”
    The fastest growing trend in mattresses is the power base. The ability to adjust your sleep position for maximum comfort is a game changer in the industry. A great way to test the results on breathing alone is to lie flat, take a deep breath in, then elevate the head and legs creating a zero-gravity position. Take in another deep breath and you will notice a marked difference in ease of breathing. A split king adjustable bed is a great solution for couples with very different sleep preferences. Each person can get the mattress they prefer in the firmness that best fits their comfort level, while being able to separately adjust their side of the bed.
    If your sleep is less than optimal, it’s always wise to consult a doctor for any underlying health issues and then consider shopping for a good-quality mattress. At Martin’s, we will give you time and space to try our mattresses. Our knowledgeable staff will do their best to help you find the perfect fit for a better night’s sleep.
