Choosing wisely: A
essential to a good
night's sleep and it
is a good idea to
options before you
I remember when I was a student in
a flat, sleeping on a wire wove thing
that was shaped like a rusty
boomerang. I ended up with a
dodgy back and had to go to the
doctor for something that would see
me through university exams.
You definitely need a good
mattress, not just to allow you to
study, but for good health.
Choosing the best mattress can
seem quite an enterprise.
There are so many types and sizes,
and considering it is a major
purchase it's important to be
prepared before you shop.
A good night's sleep is important
for your health, wellbeing and ability
to work efficiently. I recently looked
at beds and mattresses in a major
Some of them looked like they
needed ladders to get in and out.
Once you are familiar with the
menu of mattress options available,
start the process at a store you know
This may be a major department
store, or a place that specialises in
sleepware. Consultants at the latter
are more likely to give you good
Once in the store, be sure to ''test
drive'' your new mattress.
Remove your shoes, if you're a
woman, it's best to go mattress-
shopping in pants and lie down on
several different models in various
positions, especially the one you
usually sleep in, for several minutes.
And remember, those few extra
minutes of focusing on the ''feel'' of
different mattress choices can save a
lot of time later.
Just like any other major
purchase, it is important to research
your options before you buy.
Discover what is available before
you shop so you have a clear
direction of what will suit your

Mattress types have benefited
from technology and options have
changed dramatically in the past 15
to 20 years.
Memory foam and latex
mattresses have become quite
common and don't cost an arm and
a leg (just one or the other).
Inner spring mattresses have
changed as well, as manufacturers
are incorporating new types of
foams into the top of mattresses. It
just goes to show that innovation is
paving the way to better sleep for all
Inner spring mattresses are the
tried and true type of mattress that
we have all slept on at some point.
Inner springs consist of hundreds of
wires of different gauges spun into
coils. Most coils are then topped
with some kind of foam or quilting
to give a softer feel.
These mattress sets should last 5
to 10 years with normal use. Most
people find spring mattresses
uncomfortable when compared to
water beds or foam mattresses.
Standard inner spring designs often

the bed after a few years of use.
Memory Foam was introduced to
the world by NASA. Memory Foam
has been designed to offer pressure
relief and is still used in medical
situations to relieve pressure sores
where a person is confined to a bed.
No two memory foams are alike
and they can vary greatly from one
manufacturer to another.
Be sure that you are comfortable
with a company before you
purchase this type of mattress from
Memory Foam is not a natural
product; it is a polyeurethane foam.
Find a sleep set you like and then
see what levels of comfort and
support you can get for the same
amount of money in another store.
