When planning our day, week, year, or even life in general, we always list goals we would like to accomplish and tasks that will help us accomplish those goals. But we more often than not forget the most important “to-do” task on our lists – sleep. Without proper sleep, we will never accomplish our true potential.
Say you’ve moved to a new city for better job opportunities, you have a list of things you need to do to move into your new place such as rent furniture. Here, don’t forget to factor in a new mattress. To sleep well, having a comfortable physical space is a must. This includes the mattress. Sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress can lead to physical issues as well such as back and neck pains.
Here are 4 tips to choose the right mattress on rent for you:
Know what type of a sleeper you are
What is your most preferred sleeping position? Do you spend a lot of time sleeping on your side, your back, or your stomach? For example, if you like sleeping on your back or your stomach, a best firm mattress might make you feel more comfortable. And if you prefer sleeping on your side, a softer mattress may be a good option. Knowing what type of a sleeper you are will help you decide what type of mattress you should get.
Decide what material you’d like the mattress to be
Shopping for a mattress is just like shopping for clothes, you have to feel the material. You may not be wearing it, but you’ll be lying on it, every night. The most popular types are spring, coir, and foam mattresses. Each of these types serve a different purpose. Spring mattresses are firm, bouncy and affordable. Coir mattresses are made of coconut coir and absorb moisture so they’re cool, dry, and environment friendly. Foam mattresses provide extra support because they take the shape of your body when you sleep and perfect for side sleepers.
Consider your weight
The support, feel, sinkage, etc. that you’ll get from the mattress will all depend on your body weight. For instance, if you’re overweight, you will have more pressure points on your back, hence it is advisable to go for a firm mattress. If you’re underweight, on the other hand, you could choose a plush mattress.
Do thorough research
Once you have decided what type of mattress might be the best for you, start window shopping and weighing your options. Especially since you’re renting a mattress, check the material, the warranty, and the condition of mattresses available. Ask how old the mattress already is before renting it.
Budget is also an important consideration while choosing a mattress, however, renting is already a cheaper option than buying, hence, try not to compromise on quality. If you sleep better, you’ll be able to work better, and accomplish your goals!
