In peoples search for an overall healthy life they too often skip over one of the most essential elements: sleep wellness. We spend about 1/3 of our life sleeping, yet how much thought have you put into what you’re sleeping on and what you can do to improve the quality of your sleep?
The fact is the mattress you sleep on can have a dramatic impact on the quality of life you enjoy, but do you know what to look for when choosing a mattress? There are four pillars of healthy sleep that you need to consider:
- Alignment – a good mattress will provide the back support needed to keep your spine in proper alignment.
- Comfort – to achieve deep, healing sleep you need a bed that is comfortable so you don’t toss and turn at night.
- Safe, Non-Toxic Materials – Research suggests that off-gassing of toxic fumes can negatively affect your overall health.
- Durable Materials – Many mattresses lose their support and comfort overtime, causing back pain and more tossing and turning at night.
Below is an infographic that will walk you through these fundamentals and provide additional information you need to be aware of before you make a decision on which mattress to purchase for you and your family.
