Christmas is over and the family have gone back home. You have made your New Year’s resolutions and you are doing all the right things to make sure you get a good night’s sleep:
- You’re eating all the right foods
- Limiting your alcohol and caffeine
- You’re exercising regularly each week
- You even thought about meditation
- You’re switching off your gadgets, turning off the TV an hour before bed
- Your bedroom is at the right temperature and the “persianas” are down
But your still not sleeping well and on occasions, you are even waking with back pain.
You blame your partner for bed hogging or snoring and this can lead to Sleep Divorce. Nearly one in six (15%) British couples who live together now sleep apart – with almost nine out of 10 (89%) of them doing so in separate rooms*. Sleep divorce is on the rise as well, with the number of couples sleeping apart (89% of them in separate rooms) having doubled over the last decade.
Of course one of the reasons that you may not be getting the sleep you deserve is because of a poor mattress. In fact getting the right type of mattress for your bed can even improve snoring.
If you or your partner snore, the mattress you choose might make a big difference in your sleep quality. A mattress that supports your spine may curb snoring by helping keep your throat and neck aligned.
In addition, a mattress made of hypoallergenic materials may help deter dust mites and prevent mould and mildew, which can all trigger snoring.
We have written before on how to choose the best mattress and we have a wide range of mattresses to choose from. Why don’t you pop in for a visit so we can help you choose the mattress you need and perhaps avoid Sleep Divorce.
