Best Sleeping Positions for a Good Night’s Sleep

Best Sleeping Positions for a Good Night’s Sleep

Best-Sleeping-Positions

Sleep is an important part of our lives. And your sleeping position can play a big part in the quality of sleep that you have.

Different sleeping positions provide different benefits. For example, if you’re experiencing any kind of pain or certain health conditions, you might need to change your sleeping position to help manage this. And, whilst it might not be something you can change over night, changing your usual sleep position could make a difference.

Taking the time to gradually train yourself to sleep in a new position could be the secret to improving your sleep quality. If that seems too difficult then you can try modifying your usual sleeping position to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.

Fetal position

The fetal position involves sleeping on your side with legs curled in toward your body. It is the most popular sleeping position as it’s great for lower back pain or pregnancy, and it can also help reduce snoring.

When trying the fetal position, if it is new to you, make sure your posture is relatively relaxed, otherwise your position could limit deep breathing whilst you’re asleep. Putting a pillow between your knees can help. Also, if you have any issues with joint pain or stiffness, sleeping in a tight fetal position might leave you feeling sore in the morning.

Sleeping on your side

Sleeping on your side is similar to sleeping in the fetal position, but in this instance your legs aren’t pulled in toward your body. Sleeping on your side can help to reduce snoring, and it’s great for aiding digestion and may even reduce heartburn. And if you suffer from lower back pain then putting a pillow between your lower legs will help.

If you prefer sleeping on your side, choose a good pillow to avoid getting neck and back pain and sleep on whichever side feels most comfortable.

Lying on your stomach

Sleeping lying on your stomach may be less common. While it’s a good position for those who suffer from snoring or sleep apnea, the benefits don’t extend much further. Unfortunately, sleeping on your stomach can cause both neck and back pain as it can also add a lot of unnecessary strain to your muscles and joints, which is why you might wake up sore and tired.

If this is your preferred sleeping position then try sleeping with a thinner pillow or no pillow to reduce the stain on your neck.

Flat on your back

Sleeping on your back provides the most health benefits. It protects your spine, and it can also help relieve hip and knee pain.

Sleeping on your back uses gravity to keep your body in an even alignment over your spine. This can help reduce any unnecessary pressure on your back or joints. A pillow behind your knees may help support the natural curve of the back.

In addition, sleeping on your back protects the skin on your face from wrinkling.

However, if you suffer from snoring or sleep apnea then sleeping on your back won’t improve your quality of sleep It can also be difficult for anyone with back pain, which is why it’s important to make sure you’re properly supported.

Check your mattress

As everybody has different needs and sleeping styles, your mattress may be affecting your quality of sleep. Whether you prefer to feel firmly supported or nestled in luxurious softness, we can make your bed a dream destination.

Our Deluxe BodyMould mattress offers excellent comfort and support to leave you feeling fully rested and energised. It combines a supportive 5” base layer of luxury reflex foam and a 3” layer of our high density 50kg deluxe memory foam, giving the mattress a medium firm feel. This 3/5 ratio provides a blend of comfort and firmness which suits most body sizes and sleeping styles and is particularly suitable for people of average build.

Our Supreme BodyMould mattress is the pinnacle of luxury offering unrivalled comfort and support. This model has a three-layer construction. The base layer is 5” 50kg luxury reflex foam which provides superb spinal alignment. A central 2” layer highest grade 60kg supreme memory foam is topped with a 1” 50g layer of ultra soft memory foam for ultimate comfort.

Our market-leading Airflow mattress utilises our latest advances in cool foam technology. Moisture and heat are dissipated away from your body at night and open cells prevent humidity from building up. The increase in airflow is proven to be thirty times greater than other premium memory foam mattresses on the market.

The result is an ultra-comfortable, cooler sleep experience and the perfect option for you if you tend to get hot in the night. The exceptionally high-grade, high density memory foam gives the mattress a medium to soft feel, while the base layer will support every part of your body.

So, how do you work out which sleeping position is best for you? There’s no one-size-fits all approach, so you’ll need to experiment with a few positions to find one that’s both comfortable and leaves you feeling well-rested (and pain-free) when you wake up.

6 Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress Topper

There are many different benefits to using a memory foam mattress topper. These range from adding comfort to your existing mattress to being able to extend its’ lifespan. Here are 6 reasons why buying a memory foam mattress topper could improve your sleep.

1. A memory foam mattress topper increases the lifespan of your mattress

Mattress toppers act as a protective layer for your mattress, which means that it won’t get worn out as quickly. So you’ll be able to get more use out of your mattress and enjoy it for longer!

2. A mattress topper provides extra comfort

If your mattress isn’t as comfy as it used to be, a mattress topper is the best way to rejuvenate it. Like a thinner mattress that you put on top of your actual mattress, they can give your existing mattress a new lease of life!

Memory foam adapts to your shape and weight, gently cushioning you to relieve pressure points and soothe aches and pains and promotes healthier blood circulation as you sleep.

3. Your mattress topper will stay clean and fresh

Mattress toppers prevent dust and dirt from getting into your mattress which means that it can stay clean and fresh for longer. Our toppers are hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant and free from any harmful chemicals. So, you can be sure of a cleaner, healthier night’s sleep.

BodyMould toppers have a machine washable cover. This means they’re easy to keep clean. It’s also much less time consuming than cleaning your mattress!

4. A mattress topper can save you money

The unique memory foam properties will help to improve the quality of your sleep, without you having to replace the mattress – saving you money!

5. A mattress topper can change the feel of your mattress

If your mattress is a little too firm, a softer memory foam mattress topper can help giving you that extra layer to sink into after a long day.

The same is true if you need a little bit more support from your mattress. A firmer mattress topper can provide the extra support you’re looking for.

6. Add comfort anywhere

If you are renting, a memory foam mattress topper can provide peace of mind and added comfort when using a pre-used mattress. It can also improve the comfort of a sofa bed when you have guests to stay. And our toppers can be made to measure for camper vans, caravans and boats as they are easy to transport, carry, pack and store.
