Tossing and Turning it Over in Your Head {Guest Post}

There is nothing worse when you are falling asleep on the sofa so decide to go to bed hoping to get a good night’s sleep, then once you get there you find that you cannot get comfortable no matter what you do. You place the pillows in various different positions, you turn onto your side, back onto your back and onto your front, but it is not helping.

The longer that this continues, the more frustrated you become, the more uncomfortable you become, so you decide to get up. But this is not always helpful especially if you have to work the next day. You need a good night’s sleep to help you to function, to think clearly and to feel at your best.

There are a few different solutions to aid you when it comes to getting comfortable at night:
  • You could invest in a new bed.
  • You could invest in a new, firm mattress
  • You could invest in a new mattress topper, on condition that your current mattress is in good condition and not sagging in the middle or have any springs pressing through the mattress material. 

You just cannot compromise on comfort; it will not impact well on your daily life if you do. Memory foam mattresses and mattress toppers are just what you need to aid your bid for comfort and a snug night’s sleep.

You would be surprised to find that there are a lot of consumers who really like memory foam and swear by it but would not have any idea what it is actually made out of or how it works. It is in fact made of polyurethane material with a few added chemicals. The visco –elasticity is what makes it return to its shape after you have been lying on it.

Memory foam is heat sensitive so that it conforms to your body shape and naturally distributes your body weight evenly relieving pressure on your joints, shoulders and back. However, some people will be misled into thinking that because the mattress reacts to your natural body heat that it actually becomes too warm at night. This is not so.

Your bed is not complete without a decent pillow, but with the fact that there are so many pillows on the market to choose from it can again be difficult to decide on the right pillow. You need to think about purchasing a pillow which is going to offer you the correct support for your head and neck, not going to encourage you to lie in such a position that your shoulders will be sore and you need a pillow which will not ruin your posture over time.

There are many memory foam pillows on the market for consumers to choose from including:-
  • Contoured memory foam pillows, 
  • Standard shaped memory foam Pillows,
  • Travel memory foam pillows which mean you can use your memory foam while traveling. 

When you are purchasing a memory foam product of any kind, do beware of companies which are not as true as they could be. This is not to say that they are trading falsely but they do tend to sell products which are not as pure as they should be.
