Getting the right amount of sleep on a night can be affected by many things. One of the things that can help you to get enough sleep would be to avoid sleeping in on a morning and to make sure to you go to bed about the same time each night. Make sure your room is dark, quiet and cool when you’re going to sleep on a night. Also reserve your bed just for sleeping, as this is all your body will think of it for. You will also want to limit your caffeine intake, especially after lunch time as this will stop you from sleeping as easily. You will want to find a bed which is supportive rather than firm, often a medium firm bed with cushioning is best. Most mattresses need to be turned regularly to avoid wear and tear, if this is too difficult for you, then you may want to get a mattress which won’t need turning as often and will last longer.
We spend almost a third of our lives sleeping, therefore it makes sense to spend time and money a mattress you know that’s best for you. Many people think you need to get a firm orthopaedic mattress but if it’s too firm this can result in hyperlordosis. Hyperlordosis is when the spine in your lower back has excessive curvature. You want to look for a mattress which is soft enough to sink into but firm enough to support you. Also, sleeping on your side tends to avoid long-term back problems. When it comes to pillows, if you sleep on your side then you will want a firmer pillow, if you sleep on your front you will want a very flat pillow and if you sleep on your back you will want a softer one; to keep your neck in line with your spine. Then with your mattress it’s all about surface area and pressure, because the more of your body that is in contact with the mattress, mean that there’s less pressure on your hips and shoulders. A good mattress will be able to provide comfort and support, which will help to relieve back pain. A great local bed and mattress provider in Wigan would be The Bedroom Place.
