Memory foam has had quite a history since its development in the last 1960’s. There have been a few changes over the years, but few as transformative as the most recent advance in memory foam technology. In order to see how far memory foam has come though, it’s always interesting to take a step back and see where it all began.
Getting a good night’s sleep often requires keeping your cool. Literally. People who sleep in cooler rooms are able to enjoy better quality and quantity of sleep. A cool bedroom is considered the best temperature for sleeping.
If you haven’t experienced it for yourself, you’ve probably heard stories about memory foam mattresses that delivered this sinking feeling, like you were sleeping on quicksand rather than a mattress. It permeates dreams and leaves people restless throughout the night. It remains one of the most consistent complaints about memory foam to date. One memory foam mattress changes all of that.
One of the best loved features of PlushBeds’ natural latex mattresses is the coolness factor. And we’re not talking about the fact that it’s “hip” to buy one of our latex mattresses (though we certainly think it is), but about the fact that the mattresses sleep cool temperature wise — unlike other foam mattresses on the market today.
Comfort is a big question mark for many people who are interested in latex mattresses — largely if they haven’t tried one for themselves. Michael Breus, PhD and WebMD sleep expert says that latex is one of the best mattress materials because it is firm and supportive, but also comfortable. It’s very similar to memory foam, but offers more support, which is ideal for relieving back pain. These are just a few of the reasons why you might come to share Breus’ opinion about latex mattresses.
One of the most important things you need in order to properly function and have good physical and mental health, is an adequate amount of “good sleep” each night. And, as crazy as it might sound to some, sleeping with socks on can make a surprising difference in the quality and quantity of sleep you get at night. But, why can it make so much of a difference, and is it the right move for you to make?
Why Wear Socks While Sleeping?
According to Dr. Oz, turning down the thermostat in your home and sleeping with socks on is a great way to trick your body. What happens is your body believes it’s hot, which forces a reduction in your core temperature. The end result is that because your body believes it is cooler, you are better able to fall asleep and remain asleep.
According to WebMD, 63 percent of Americans are side sleepers. That means that a large percentage of the population needs to be looking for mattresses that have certain properties best suited for a good nights sleep. It makes perfect sense that side sleepers are interested in finding the best mattress for side sleepers.
What might come as a surprise however, is the fact that side sleepers need different things from mattresses than people who sleep on their backs. Sleep posture can have a significant impact on your overall health as well as the quality of the sleep you get. The right mattress ensures you get a full night’s sleep as well as a comfortable night’s sleep.
