Why a good mattress is your best investment

When you invest in a superior mattress, what you’re really investing in is your health.

An average person spends around 56 hours a week in bed or about a third of their life sleeping. Getting a good night’s rest is vital to your well-being and in rejuvenating mind and body.

Sleep helps our bodies recover in five key areas: growth, restoration, immunity, memory, and learning. But you must get uninterrupted sleep to make it count! Six hours of continuous sleep is still more rejuvenating than eight hours of poor, fragmented sleep. Here is where a functional, durable mattress matters.

It will last you years

Think about it, you spend about seven to nine hours a day in bed sleeping. Then add in a couple more hours for time spent reading, napping, watching tv, working on your laptop or relaxing. For something you use every day, you need a mattress that can provide you with consistent quality of comfort for at least eight to 10 years.

When picking out your mattress, it’s important to look for one that can maintain its structural integrity. Memory foam mattresses, especially those with lower density, tend to have a shorter lifespan compared to latex mattresses. Mattresses with the Simmons Pocketed Coil Technology are usually more durable because unlike ordinary open coils which are hourglass-shaped and interconnected, Simmons Original Pocketed Coils are barrel-shaped, wrapped in individual pocketed coils and are independent of each other. Each coil contributes to the overall strength of the mattress, allowing it to hold up longer and better than a regular coil mattress.

Get better and deeper sleep when it’s uninterrupted

Several factors affect your overall wellbeing. While diet and exercise are the obvious ones, quality of sleep plays a part, too. Lack of sleep or poor quality sleep can affect your immune system, cognitive abilities, metabolism, blood pressure, and is also related to obesity, heart disease and other ailments. Sleep deprivation can also make us irritable and moody. Haven’t we all felt it at some point in our lives? A solid mattress will ensure you get uninterrupted sleep, so opt for one that minimises motion transfer—especially if you share the bed with a partner who tosses and turns in his or her sleep!

This is where the Simmons Original Pocketed Coils can contribute significantly. The main difference between a regular coil and Simmons Original Pocketed Coils is that the latter responds individually and independently to weight and movement, greatly reducing motion transfer between two sleeping partners.

Keeps you cool in your sleep

Hot and humid, that’s Singapore’s tropical climate for you. Save for a few wet months, Singapore is generally hot all year round. If you’re not one who likes to crank up the A/C, go for a mattress with features that help regulate your body temperature while you sleep, so you won’t be waking up in the middle of the night feeling warm and uncomfortable.

When it comes to keeping cool in your sleep, look for mattresses that use weather-friendly materials that can help dissipate heat and provide consistent comfort.

A good mattress will have your back

Isn’t it a joy to come home to a haven after a hard day’s work? A good mattress can help further alleviate the stresses of the day with features targeted to reduce body discomforts and aches. This means you will wake feeling more energised and refreshed the next morning.

It’s important to look for a mattress that can support pressure points and keep your spine properly aligned in various positions as you sleep. Maintain good spine and body posture while you sleep with specialised mattresses designed to give proper support for the body. Mattresses that have Simmons Pocketed Coil have greater resilience and conformability for better back support. The compressed spring system effectively and readily responds to different weights and contours around the body, giving you individualised comfort and support.

Buy the best you can afford

A premium mattress usually comes with a bigger price tag, but price is not always everything. Remember to think about your needs and the features that the mattress offers, then get the best you can afford. A mattress is an investment, and a good one will last for years!
