UPGRADE YOUR MATTRESS
If you’ve had your mattress for seven to 10 years, or if it’s sagging in spots, it’s time to change it. To find one of your preferred firmness, lie on each mattress on your back and sides, for at least 10 minutes.
For you and Hubby, choose a firmness that’s in-between what you both like, recommends Richard Thio, a sales representative from Serta. If you are a light sleeper and Hubby tends to toss and turn, try the mattress together to make sure it accommodates his movement without you feeling it on your side of the bed. Try: The Serta Pedic Collection (from Serta Sleep Center) of three mattresses with varying firmness – Prestige, Posture and Pedic. Chiropractors have evaluated them and found that they give the support needed for a good night’s sleep. These mattresses weigh at least 80kg and have pocket springs that support your body while absorbing motion so you can sleep well – even if Hubby is a restless sleeper.
The springs are encased in Koolcomfort, a visco-elastic foam that moulds to your body to minimise excessive pressure on any part, so you don’t wake up achy and tired.
