Firm mattresses are not only hardwearing options that can last for many years without requiring replacement but can also offer exceptional support to a wide variety of sleepers. Cleverly crafted using pocketed spring units containing 1000 individual springs firm mattresses are packed with luxury filling and often reinforced at the sides for longevity.
In the following passages, we’ll explore how mattresses like the extra-firm Brick mattress can be advantageous for a number of different reasons and offer some suggestions on how to adapt to a firmer sleeping surface.
Health benefits of a firm mattress
While after sleeping on something softer, a firm mattress may seem too hard at first, those who persevere can find many benefits for their health. When sleeping on a flat and firm surface, our bones tend to absorb the majority of the pressure, putting less strain on our circulatory systems such as veins and arteries but also our muscles.
Firmer mattresses are also able to stop our lower backs from collapsing while we are prone, which can allow us to improve our oxygen intake during the night. Overall, less sagging is experienced with firmer mattresses which means our body weight is more evenly distributed, ensuring no single part of our body ever takes the full brunt of the pressure.
Consider your sleeping position
A firmer mattress has been proven to be a useful solution for people who sleep on their back overnight. This is because unlike their softer counterparts, firm mattresses provide an even surface that is overall more stable which can deliver a more comfortable night’s sleep for those who sleep facing up.
Acclimatising your body to a firmer mattress
Those who find a firm mattress a tad too hard or need time to adjust to the new surface can employ an Airflow mattress topper temporarily for additional cushioning. It’s worth remembering that if you experience health issues such as long-term back problems, it’s always a wise idea to consult a medical professional for advice before selecting a new mattress for your bed.
