With so many types of mattresses such as foam, latex and spring, it is no wonder shoppers like you are overwhelmed with choices. This can be a major problem if you have no idea what these difference are all about. Here is a quick rundown of the three types of mattress.Spring8 out of 10 mattress bought by shoppers are spring mattress. There are both advantage and disadvantages to whichever you buy. But most likely, you have slept on a spring mattress before. You will find that it is firmer and provides strong support to your spine when you sleep on them compared to other types. The number of coils will determine the quality. If you prefer the feel of a spring mattress, look out for a gauge coil of at least 315 as that is the so-called minimum desirable support experts have recommended. How good the experience or comfort will depends on the coil distribution. You may not be able to see the inside distribution of the coils, so do find out from the salesperson. Go ahead and lie on the bed to check whether the coil is evenly distributed to be able to support the weight from your thighs, hips and spine. Memory FoamThe good thing about this type of mattress is that it is able to align to your body shape and support your spine with the right amount of resistance. There are different ranges – some softer and others firmer. You can identify each type through a classification known as indentation load deflection (ILD). Most experts will recommend ILD of 10-16 for most people. However, do note that memory mattress may lack the bounce and spring of what you would normally experience. The higher costs may also be another factor to consider. Nonetheless, it can offer good support for those experiencing body aches and pains as it has a high mattress resiliency.Latex FoamLatex is another word for rubber. Just like memory mattresses, it is able to bendable, offering better alignment support compared to spring types. If you like a bouncy feel and yet prefer the firmness of memory mattress, then the latex foam will be a good choice for you.

Ok. Let’s talk a little bit about saving some money. Here’s an important piece of advice. You should always take a notebook with you when you go shopping for a bed. And you should always make notes on every bed you like.

They don’t have to be detailed notes. But you need to remember what you liked and what the price was. So just keep notes of the make, model, price, and where you saw every bed you’re considering. And don’t write it all down in the car after you leave the store. Take the notebook into the store with you and write in it while you’re there. Sometimes you’ll forget what you saw by the time you leave the store.

It sounds as if I’m expecting you to visit a bunch of different stores in order to buy a bed. Oh yes, I am. And you’ll see just why that’s important shortly.

One last thing here before you learn everything you need to know to save money on a folding mattress. What you’re about to read in the next paragraph is HUGE. Don’t think of it as advice. Think of it as a rule. And don’t break it.

It’s critical that you’re not confrontational with any of the salesmen you deal with. You need to make sure you don’t develop an adversarial relationship with them. To put it more simply, you want them to feel that you’re open to everything they say. Convince them that you want to work with them, not against them.

Don’t ever let them know that you’re working them while they’re working you. Once they think that you’re playing them, you’ll have a much harder time getting a good deal. So make them believe you’re working together. This should be easy, because you are. You’re trying to find a price that will make both of you happy. So play nice.

Not being able to fall asleep can be extremely annoying. You lay in bed and all you can think about is when exactly you’re going to fall asleep. That, and/or you just can’t stop thinking in general! For some reason, our minds first choice of activity when about to rest always seems to be words. For those that don’t like to read, this is rather ironic.A great way to get past “talking to yourself“, is to think in pictures instead of words. You can imagine yourself flying, on a beach, anything. This has proven to help people fall asleep faster.As mentioned in the previous post, there are certain things you should avoid before falling asleep.In summary they are:Do not eat a few hours before sleeping. This creates energy in your body. This rings true especially with sugar and/or carb rich foods.Do not exercise a few hours before sleeping. This gets your blood pumping faster and creates energy.Do not drink much water within a few hours of sleeping. The last thing you want is to have to go to the bathroom just as your about to fall asleep, or wake up right after.Make sure the lighting is not to bright, and the room is not too cold.Another great way on how to fall asleep faster is to take a hot bath right before you are about to go to bed. Our bodies are hardwired into being awake during the day, and sleep during the night. So, taking a bath simulates a drop in body temperature, which sounds the alarm that it’s time to fall asleep. Yes, your body temperature will rise while bathing but that’s the point (it drops after the fact). This was recommended to me by a sleep specialist and works great.

Are you spending sleepless nights? Then there are chances that you are suffering from a sleep disorder. There are various types of sleep disorders. Snoring, insomnia, parasomnia, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, sleep apnea, circadian rhythm disorders, narcolepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, jet lag, and seasonal affective disorder are some of them.Insomnia is a condition in which an individual is unable to sleep properly or faces persistent difficulty in falling or staying asleep. This disorder is the most common type with almost seven out of ten people complaining of it. Other ways of defining insomnia are difficulty in initiating and maintaining sleep, non-restorative sleep that is associated with impairment of day time functioning, or marked distress for more than a month. Insomnia can be categorized as transient insomnia, acute insomnia, and chronic insomnia.A person snores when there is an obstruction to air movement during respiration while sleeping. The irregular air flow is caused by blockage of the airways due to various reasons. Sleep apnea, on the other hand, is considered to be a more serious condition comparatively.

It is a disorder in which the person experiences abnormal pauses in breathing or very low breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea can be of three types, namely central, obstructive, or complex.Parasomnias consist of a series of sleep disorders that involve abnormal behavior, perceptions, unnatural movements, and dreams that occur while sleeping, or between stages of sleep. Sleep paralysis is observed when a person is not fully awake and is unable to move temporarily. Sometimes, unpleasant feelings in the legs like aches, burning or tingling sensations, or a feeling of bugs crawling on the legs may restrict one’s movements. This can occur at rest or during nighttime. This neurological disorder is termed as restless legs syndrome, which also alters the sleeping patterns.Narcolepsy is characterized by cataplexy (loss of muscle tone), sleep paralysis, excessive daytime sleeping, and hypnagogic (sleep inducing) hallucinations. Circadian rhythm disorders result when the internal biological clock is disturbed or is out of sync with the external time period; for example, working in shifts or jet lag. This may lead to insomnia or hypersomnia (excessive sleepiness).In some individuals, depression and excessive sleepiness is observed during the winter season due to lack of bright light, which affects the biological clock. This recurrent mood disorder may be due to a seasonal affective disorder. Chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by prolonged and unexplained fatigue that neither improves by rest nor worsens by any form of activity.
