In your life, have you ever had this experience:
Sleeping on a very hard bed, when I get up I feel that my whole body is hard...
Sleeping on a soft bed, you will feel sore and uncomfortable when you get up...
One third of a person's life is spent in bed. It can be seen that a mattress that suits you is important to your sleep and health.
The relationship between mattress and sleep
Mattress is too soft: it will cause the body's weight area to be too large and severely sink, and it cannot be effectively supported, which will cause the spine to deform and even disease.
The mattress is too hard: it will cause the weight of the body to have no corresponding force area to adapt, resulting in the small weight of the part hanging in the air, and it is easy to cause bone damage such as the spine.
Therefore, choosing a mattress with moderate hardness is the key to achieving natural deep sleep.
In addition, a good mattress should be able to meet the needs of silence, ventilation, and water permeability, so that users can bring a good sleep.
Mute function: can absorb the noise and vibration caused by sleep turning, so that sleep is not disturbed.
Breathable and water-permeable function: make the air circulate freely in the mattress, disperse the heat and sweat generated by the contact between the skin and the mattress during sleep, and keep the sleep comfortable and dry.
It can be seen that a good mattress has a particularly important impact on sleep quality.
How to choose a mattress that suits you
Since everyone has different requirements for height, weight, sleeping posture, and the hardness of the mattress, choosing a mattress that suits you is an extremely delicate knowledge.
Thin people: It is suitable to use a softer mattress. Due to its own less fat, a too hard mattress will produce a feeling of pressure on the body, causing poor blood circulation in the body, and it is easy to toss and turn and it is difficult to fall asleep.
Overweight people: suitable for harder mattresses, because their own weight is too large, too soft mattresses will make it difficult to turn over and struggle to get up.
In addition, the sleeping habits are different, and the choice of mattress is also particular.
People who like to sleep on the side: suitable for softer mattresses;
People who like to lie on their stomachs: suitable for harder mattresses;
People who like to lie on their backs: suitable for mattresses with moderate hardness.
Reminder: No mattress is suitable for all people. Everyone is different in height, body shape, sleeping posture, age, lifestyle, occupation, etc., and the requirements for mattresses are also different! Therefore, to choose a mattress that suits you, the best way is to go to a mattress store to experience it!
A good mattress standard that suits you
1. High degree of fit: When we lie on the mattress, the soft cushion on the surface of the mattress should fully conform to the soft tissues of the body, and there should be no gaps. It must be able to provide very comfortable and soft protection to the body, disperse body weight, and reduce body pressure. The mattress will not bring pressure to the body, resulting in poor blood circulation and making it difficult to fall asleep.
2. Good support: traditional wooden bed or too hard brown mattress, because of its inability to conform to the body curve and insufficient support, sleepers will have symptoms of backache and back pain. A spring mattress with moderate hardness will be divided into seven sections according to the natural curve of the human spine to correctly support each bone of the body, and fully support the head, neck, shoulders, back, waist, buttocks, Calf, keep the body bones in a natural vertical state, relieve stress and reduce waist strain.
Only when the spine maintains a natural curvature, the muscles can really relax, otherwise it will be replaced by the fatigue of the backache when getting up, which requires the softness of the mattress to be moderate.
3. Environmental protection and health: The inner filling of the mattress should be environmentally friendly, with antibacterial, anti-mite, and breathable functions, the mattress fabric should be wear-resistant, and have the function of preventing open flames and flame retardant.
4. Durable: For a good mattress, its spring must stand the test of time, and its quality and comfort will last for several years.
To have a healthy sleep, you can start with the choice of mattress. From today, abandon the unsuitable mattress, find the mattress that belongs to your body, and let yourself sleep well! Healthy sleep, healthy life!
Pillow is a kind of sleep tool, it is a kind of thing with a long history created to ensure a comfortable sleep. Experts pointed out: The use of pillows makes our sleep process more comfortable, but the function of pillows is more than that. Choosing a pillow appropriately can also help a lot in the treatment of insomnia.
1. Sit back and relax
Normal people sleep on a pillow that is too high, whether lying on their back or on their side, will change the physiological curvature of the cervical spine. Over time, the neck muscles will be strained and spasm, accelerate the deformation of the intervertebral joints, and promote the formation of bone spurs, leading to cervical spine instability. And other issues.
In addition, a high pillow will increase the angle of the neck and chest, obstructing airway ventilation, and easily lead to dry throat, sore throat and snoring.
2. Low pillows are not comfortable
Normal people sleeping on a low pillow for a long time will also change the physiological state of the cervical spine. Because the veins of the head have no valves, gravity will slow down the venous return in the brain, and the arterial blood supply will increase relatively, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms such as head swelling, irritability, and insomnia.
3. What height is appropriate?
1). Under normal circumstances, the appropriate height of the pillow is 10-15 cm, but the specific size depends on each person's physiological characteristics, especially the physiological curvature of the neck. Pillows can be slightly higher for people with shoulder-width and fat body, and lower for thinners.
2). Sleeping habits also have an impact on determining the height of the pillow. People who are accustomed to sleeping on their backs should have their pillow height compressed and equal to their fist height (the height of the fist and the upward height of the fist is the fist height standard); and those who are accustomed to sleeping on the side For people, the height of the pillow should be the same as the height of one side of the shoulder after compression. Of course, a pillow that can maintain the normal physiologic curvature of the neck is the most ideal regardless of whether it is sleeping on the back or on the side.
3). For the pillow itself, the part supporting the back of the neck (neck curve) should be slightly higher and have a certain degree of hardness, so as to set off and maintain the physiological curvature of the neck. The part that supports the back of the head should be 3--5 cm lower than the above-mentioned part, so that it can fully support the head and adapt to the height of the neck.
Generally speaking, people with high blood pressure, heart disease, and asthma sometimes need to sleep on a high pillow; people suffering from low blood pressure and anemia sometimes need to sleep on a low pillow.
