Sleep Better with a New Mattress If You Have Sleep Problems – We Have Solutions
How To Solve Your Sleep Problems
A National Sleep Foundation poll found that 74% of American adults experience a sleeping problem a few nights a week or more, 39% get less than seven hours of sleep each weeknight, and more than one in three (37%) are so sleepy during the day that it interferes with daily activities.
Several large studies have linked sleep deficits with poor work performance, relationship problems, and mood problems like anger and depression. Heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity have all been linked with chronic sleep loss.
And if the last time you replaced your mattress was seven years ago or longer, it's gained more than twice the original weight with dust, sweat, and millions of unhealthy dust mites that can contribute to allergies and asthma.

How to Treat Insomnia
If you aren't able to fall asleep or stay asleep at night or if you're waking up earlier than usual and feel daytime fatigue, it could be insomnia. If left unresolved, chronic insomnia can wreak major damage on an individual’s life.
There are a few things that you can do to treat insomnia. First, make sure that you are getting enough exercise. Additionally, you should try to avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed, as they can interfere with your ability to fall asleep.
Apart from revitalizing your sleep hygiene, there is another very important thing you can do to assist your sleep health: upgrade your mattress. We’re often asked, ‘does a good mattress improve sleep?’ The answer is almost always, yes. Improving the quality of your mattress will help improve the quality of your sleep. So, what is the right mattress for sleep problems? There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best mattress for insomnia will vary depending on the individual. However, some mattresses are known for being more conducive to a good night's sleep than others.
How to Treat Sleep Apnea
Have you been told you make snoring, snorting, and gasping sounds when you sleep? Or are you restless, experience morning headaches, and are excessively sleepy or fatigued during the day? If so, sleep apnea may be the culprit. Like many sleep-related conditions, sleep apnea is affected by many things and can be a life-threatening condition. Before turning to sleep apnea medication, you might find it useful to examine your mattress. A proper sleeping surface should be a top priority because sleep quantity and sleep quality are affected by sleep apnea.
To help alleviate sleep apnea symptoms, studies have shown that the best sleeping position for sleep apnea is sleeping on your side. To sleep on your side without harming your alignment, you’ll need the best mattress for side sleep. For side sleepers, you’ll want a mattress that contours to the shape of your body and provides important pressure relief. Finding a mattress that can be adjusted to fit your exact needs could have a positive effect on achieving deep restorative sleep by allowing you to stay asleep in one spot longer.
What is the Best Sleep Aid?
Today, more people are relying on over-the-counter sleep aids and prescription sleeping pills than ever before, when the real culprit denying them a good night's sleep is their mattress. In fact, relying on medication to keep you asleep while using the wrong sleeping surface could actually make you less rested. Recent research finds that if your body is properly fitted with the correct support and comfort level, your need for medication could be reduced or in some cases eliminated – saving you thousands each year!
Many of today’s sleep solutions, like OTC sleep aids, are natural, low-risk solutions. However, often times, they only scratch at the surface of your sleep problem. So, what is the most effective natural sleep aid? Many people may find that a good mattress helps them sleep better and eliminates the need for a sleep aid. Disruptions in sleep are often a sign that it may be time to replace your old mattress.
How to Sleep with Neck Pain and Headaches
A common complaint from our customers is head and neck pain. There are many potential causes of neck pain while sleeping, but some of the most common include improper sleeping posture, using a pillow that is too high or too low, sleeping on your stomach, and having a poor mattress. If you are experiencing neck pain while sleeping, it is important to evaluate your sleep habits and make adjustments as needed in order to reduce your pain and find a more comfortable sleeping position.
There are many things you can do to help prevent or alleviate neck pain and headaches while you sleep. First, you should invest in the right pillow. Not all pillows are created equal. For aches and discomfort, you’ll need the best pillow for neck pain. You should look for a pillow that has been designed to maintain the natural curve of your neck. Using the BedFIT diagnostic process, we can help determine the right pillow for relieving neck pain.
While there is no one best sleeping position for neck pain, we recommend that you avoid sleeping on your stomach. Sleeping on your stomach can strain your neck and increase pain levels. You could also try sleeping on your side (using a pillow between your knees can provide additional support).
Finally, you should find the best mattress for neck pain. If you’ve changed your pillow and are still experiencing issues it may be time to see if a new mattress can help. Mattress Land’s BedFIT diagnostic test can help determine the right mattress for you based on your specific neck pain issues.
How to Sleep with Lower Back Pain
Sleeping with lower back pain can be a challenge. There are a few things you can do to make it a bit more comfortable. One of the best sleeping positions for back pain is on your back with your knees bent. This takes the pressure off your spine. You can also place a pillow between your knees. If you find that side sleeping is more comfortable, place a pillow between your legs. This will help keep your spine in alignment. Whichever position you sleep in, be sure to use a good quality mattress and pillow to support your back.
If you're struggling with lower back pain, a new mattress may be just what you need. A good quality mattress will support your spine and help alleviate pain. If you're not sure which mattress is right for you, take advantage of Mattress Land's BedFIT technology. This proprietary technology can help you find the perfect mattress for your needs. Finding the right firmness and mattress type to help back pain can be tricky. BedFIT takes the guesswork out choosing a mattress so you can get relief sooner.
What Helps Restless Leg Syndrome?
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that causes a strong urge to move your legs. This happens mostly when you're sitting or lying down. The symptoms are often worse at night. Moving your legs usually relieves the urge and discomfort.
A mattress that doesn't fit your unique sleep profile can increase restless legs syndrome (RLS) which is the irresistible urge to move your legs after getting into bed, during the night, after awakening, or even when wide awake during the day.
A good mattress can help restless leg syndrome by providing the support your body needs to reduce discomfort. It's important to find a mattress that is comfortable and that doesn't cause pain in other parts of your body. You may also want to try a mattress pad or pillow top mattress for extra cushioning.
If you have restless leg syndrome, you may also want to try an adjustable bed. This can help you find a position that is comfortable and that relieves your symptoms.
How to Treat Fibromyalgia
Many people throughout America struggle with this condition that produces long-term, body-wide pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia and sleep are closely interlinked. Some people with fibromyalgia have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. The pain and fatigue that are common symptoms of fibromyalgia can make it difficult to get the rest you need. Additionally, hot flashes and night sweats can cause discomfort and interrupted sleep. There is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, but there are treatments that can help lessen your symptoms.
For those with fibromyalgia, a proper sleeping surface is critically important. Today's sleep technology offers far more comfort than ever before by offering "low tension" or "low skin pressure" sleeping surfaces that allow staying in one spot longer for deeper, more restorative sleep.
The best mattress for fibromyalgia is a firm mattress that provides good support. This full-body support can help relieve some of the pressure points that cause pain in people with fibromyalgia. Additionally, a mattress that is not too hot or too cold can help regulate body temperature and improve sleep quality.
How to Stop Tossing and Turning at Night
Everyone tosses and turns at night, on average 40-60 times each night! Tossing and turning at night is usually caused by excessive skin and body pressure and a lack of support that cuts off circulation and causes movement in an attempt to maintain proper support. The result is a detrimental interruption to the sleep cycle that prevents achieving the deep REM stages of sleep that is the most restorative.
Some tossing and turning while sleeping is inevitable. But how much depends on the correct fit of your mattress. With our exclusive BedFIT™ diagnostic process we can fit you to a sleep system with the proper support and pressure relief to finally reduce your nightly tossing and turning.
How to Sleep with Acid Reflux
Have you ever had the sensation that you were choking on acid reflux while sleeping? Acid reflux while sleeping is a common problem that many Americans experience. Too many ignore this potentially serious condition that can be reduced by three simple things: a sensible diet, regular exercise, and finding the best sleeping position for acid reflux.
Studies have shown that acid reflux symptoms can be relieved by sleeping at an elevated position. Doctors recommend elevating the top of a bed 3-6 inches to prevent acid from flowing upward into the esophagus at night while you sleep. Until now, this solution wasn't practical for those with a partner who prefers sleeping flat. Fortunately, advancements in sleep technology today have made split foundations with individual adjustments more affordable than ever before. Now everyone can find the perfect position for reading, relaxing and deep, healthy sleep.
