Winter - a perfect time for a new mattress
As the nights draw in, we spend more and more of our time indoors. That, in our house at least, leads to more time spent in our bedroom. With the children hogging the television and the lack of sunlight just making us feel tired a lot earlier in the day, we escape to our bedroom for some peace and quiet.
Although we don't follow our own advice - a bed should just be for sleeping! - we're probably like most couples who, especially at this time of year use our bed to sit and watch television or read before dropping off.
Our bedroom becomes a special place of calm and comfort, and that's why our mattress is even more important. We spend a lot more time in bed at this time of year and it's important that the time isn't wasted by tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable.
A mattress is a big purchase but it's an important one and something that you should get right. Don't consider it a luxury or a frivolous buy. Just think about how important a good night's sleep is.
We all feel better after a good sleep. We wake up feeling better, happier, ready to take on the day. Consider the opposite, when you've had a bad night's sleep. For me, I get snappy, irritable and more often than not, I don't get much work done the following day because I just do not have the energy or motivation. My work suffers, my family suffer. So do not consider a new mattress a luxury, consider it a necessity.
I am particularly interested in our new range of mattresses by Breasley mattress range. The Medi-Matt mattresses are just being added to our store this week and so far, the feedback has been excellent. Made from medically-treated foam and come with a removable, washable cover.
I'll let you know which one we decide to go for.
