I spent around a third of my life in bed, and getting enough sleep is more important than I had realised. My mattress was 20yrs old. I felt tired all the time, tried CPAP Sleep Apnea machines, nose strips, diets, weight loss, tests for over/under active thyroids, herbs, and even more hours in bed. A good night’s rest still eluded me. When my wife convinced me to buy a new Hudson Pocket Sprung Mattress, I instantly noticed that instead of waking up 10-15 times a night and changing sleeping position I woke up maybe once and didn't need to change position. My lower back used to be in bits when I woke up and even forced me out of bed after about 7hrs due to the discomfort. Now I wake every morning wondering why my back is fine and I feel fully rested. I usually felt that work took every ounce of energy from me leaving nothing for my personal life, now work is a sinch as I feel so alert and even have energy left when I get home to enjoy sports/social occassions/family. My stress levels have dramatically reduced, and even when surrounded by sick people I don't get sick.
If your mattress isn’t up to scratch, it can prevent from getting that all-important good night’s sleep, and can even cause you aches and pains due to a lack of support. Mattresses that aren’t suited to your sleep style end up not supporting your spine, knocking you out of alignment, and potentially causing long term problems. I will never again scoff at the adds on the TV, You can find the perfect mattress easily, and you might even save some money in the process. Invest in your wellbeing, you won't regret it and it won't cost you an arm or a leg to get it!
