A good night's sleep depends on several factors, such as one’s stress level, room temperature, and even health status. Most importantly, however, are the basics, such as the mattress on which you sleep. Needless to say, a quality mattress is the first step to a deep, rejuvenating night's sleep.

It is important to find a mattress that supports your body in a neutral position, with the spine in a gently curved position and the heels, buttocks, shoulders, and head in correct alignment. If the mattress is too firm, undue pressure will be applied to those body areas. On the other hand, if the mattress is excessively soft, the body will not get the support it needs. Both of these scenarios could lead to muscle aches and stiffness the morning.



Before stepping out and searching for one of the best organic mattresses in Sacramento, consider asking a doctor or physical therapist for advice. This is especially useful if you have trouble sleeping or suffer a musculoskeletal problem. While it is true that doctors and therapists do not specialize in sleep research, they are likely to know your particular needs and concerns and can counsel you accordingly. This way, you can pick out a mattress that will promote and enhance your well-being.

How can you tell if you need a new mattress? One quick evaluation can tell you. If you are sore and have lower back pain in the morning, but are able to make the aches go away within 30 minutes with some stretching, you need a new mattress. A quality mattress will hardly have a "feel" to it; it should almost seem as if you are floating on air.

When you are looking into purchasing a new mattress, try to visit a leading organic mattress store that focuses primarily on their client’s unique needs and preferences. The customer service representatives are more likely to have answers to any questions you may have concerning organic mattresses. Take note to "test drive” the mattress by lying on it for at least 15 minutes in the store to see if you really like it—and you might want to get new pillows as well.
