You thought you didn’t need a sleep trial when you bought your last mattress, didn’t you? How did that work out for you? If the answer is anything but amazing, then you didn’t do the right choice.
You can’t just walk into a mattress shop and decide what you need. Your body will do that for you. How you might ask? It’s very simple and here’s how it goes;
When we buy a new mattress, we’re changing 8 hours of our day in a second. That’s a big change, although some might say it isn’t! Depends how your sleep quality is really. We find it difficult to adapt to new shoes we wear for an hour or two in the gym, let alone changing an 8-hour period for every single day.
Our body needs time. It needs time to heal itself from not just sores but all the damage the previous mattress does to you. You may think it’s not, but those back strains and side pains speak for themselves. Let me put it this way, if you break your leg no medicine known to science is able to fix you up in the space of 24 hours. So, we need to give our body time, and a lot of it I might add.
Once our body reaches that stage of better quality, the next step is to get use to your new mattress. Your body will again do this for you as day by day you are familiarising yourself with your new mattress and which position your body finds it most comfortable in. That’s pretty much stage two for you.
On to the last stage. Your mornings will really determine whether you’ve made the right choice or not. How? If you don’t feel like you’ve had the best night’s sleep of your life, every night, then something’s wrong. You need to feel re-energised in the morning, not worrying about those pains you’ve been feeling during your sleep.
So, if you’ve not reached at least stage 3 by 2 to 3 weeks’ time, then start worrying. If you haven’t at least had one amazing night’s sleep, then there you go, that’s why you need a sleep trial. It’s happened to all of us where we regret spending our money on something. Don’t let that happen to you when you buy your mattress. Make sure you feel safe on your mattress, not just when you’re sleeping, but when you’re up every morning.
