A good night's sleep

Getting a “good night’s sleep” is one of the things many of us say before your first day at a new job, on the evening of an important exam or if you’re feeling a little under the weather.

But in reality it’s pretty important to get a good night’s sleep all of the time because it leaves you feeling fit and thinking sharply. If you’re struggling to catch some well-earned rest, cast your eyes over some of the tips below and see if they make a difference. Finding your perfect sleep conditions can often be a trial and error process, so don’t be put off if the first tip doesn’t work straight away!

Buying a new mattress

Of course, a few quirky tips can only get you so far, but the real solution may be something far simpler. Mattresses do not last forever so, even if it looks passable, it still might not be giving you enough support.

A mattress’s life span can be affected by a number of variants including a change of lifestyle or the amount of time you assign to taking care of it. If you think you are not sleeping as well as you did last year, it could be time to switch your mattress.

A mattress should last for around 7-8 years, so buying a new one is a decision not to be taken lightly. With this in mind, make sure when you are testing the mattress that you do it properly! We’re not just talking a quick sit down, we want you to wear something comfortable, kick off your shoes and have a proper lie down. This is the only way you will properly gauge the tension and firmness of the mattress before you buy it.

If you and your partner prefer different tensions, then why not order one of our bespoke mattresses which can be ordered in different tensions on either side, from 3 being the softest to 9 being the firmest. Don’t forget to book an appointment in-store with one of our sleep experts across the country, to ensure you are looking at the best mattress for you.
