Your bed is where you begin your day at, and it also happens to be the last place where you resort to after a tiring day. How well you can sleep defines your next day as well as your physical, emotional and mental health. It has been proven times and again that our sleep and overall well-being are interconnected.
Needless to say, this means that how your day will end, how good you’ll be able to sleep, how awesome your next day would be, and how healthy you will depend a lot on the bed you sleep on.
So without further delay, let’s take a look at some of the important points to consider while buying a bed.
If the store tag says “do not lie on the bed”, just walk out and move to the next store that allows you to lie on the bed. After all, that’s the purpose of bed. If you can’t lie on it, how would you know that it will be a good fit for you and your spine? Take particular note of your weight and built, and in the case of a chronic spinal issue, do mention this to the store attendant.
No, we are not talking about the beds that you at the orthopaedic centres. These beds are specially designed keeping patients with spinal issues in mind. Yes, they may cost a little bit more than your regular beds, but hey, it’s your health we are talking about. And nobody goes out to buy beds every month. For the uninitiated, the first step would be considering spring or slat beds.
Buying a good bed and compromising on the mattress is like buying amazing running shoes and then walking or running barefoot. The purpose of the whole purchase is defeated if you don’t invest in a mattress that provides the required support.
