Resting well means enjoying more energy during the day and, in general, achieving a higher quality of life. To guarantee you a good night's sleep, the first thing to do is to choose the best mattress where to spend them.

Each person has different psycho-physical needs, so it is not easy to establish rules that are valid for all that allow us to orientate the choice of the perfect mattress. We must therefore know their habits and needs, and then proceed with the search for their ideal mattress.

For example, a first difference can be found between people who often move during sleep and those who tend to remain practically always in the same position. For the first category is recommended latex mattress, a material that allows greater freedom of movement, while the memory tends to adapt to the shape of the body, welcoming it almost in a niche and ensuring a comfort such that you will not often feel the need to change position.

So we have just mentioned the two main categories of mattresses, those in latex and memory foam, which have been beating the competition for a few years (spring mattresses, cocoons, wool, etc.) especially for the guarantees they can offer from a hygienic point of view.

Latex allows you to keep away all mites, allergy carriers, as it is a material that does not absorb dust. Latex mattresses are particularly suitable for those suffering from lumbar or cervical disorders, because they can accompany and support well the various parts of the body, which are therefore not overloaded during the night.

Memory foam is a material initially invented and produced by NASA, which has then found industrial applications. As already mentioned, the memory adapts perfectly to the shape of the body thanks to the heat of the same that shapes it. Precisely because of this capacity it is recommended to be adopted by orthopedists.

The new generation mattresses have been designed "in zones", to give more or less support to the various parts of the body that are painful or problematic. Therefore, inform yourself, when you are making this type of purchase, about the amount of areas in the mattress, usually ranging from 3 to 7.

Especially in the case of a memory mattress, which owes its effectiveness to body heat, it is important to verify that the lining, the part most directly in contact with the human body, is of natural material and allows good transpiration. Synthetic materials could cause excessive perspiration during the night, which could then be "absorbed" by the mattress, especially if it does not rest on slats or on a shelf that does not allow air circulation.

Hard or soft? The extremes are never good, even if you simply talk about mattresses! A mattress is too soft if you are so "welcomed" that you have difficulty rolling on your side. It is too hard, however, when lying down on the back (belly up) remains a considerable space between the surface of the mattress and the back. In these cases the body will be forced to adapt to the mattress, when the opposite should happen: it is the mattress that must be ergonomic!

Price is another factor to consider, but it is important to know that low-cost materials correspond to low-quality materials, which do not guarantee your health or the life of the product.
