Time to Adjust to New Mattress
It may be time
No matter how much you love your current mattress the truth is some day it will need to be replaced as it does age and loose its support. Over time it loses the support it once had after many nights of sleeping on it. So it may be time to bite the bullet and buy a new mattress.
It may be exciting and also nerve racking at the same time when buying a new mattress. Since there are so many options today available to consumers. One of the difficulties that many people run into is trying to get comfortable with a new mattress. It may seem like it does not conform to your body but the truth is your body may just need to become comfortable and use to the mattress. If you are experiencing this you can try these things to see if you just need to break it in.
Allow proper time to adjust to the new mattress
Remember it may take some time for your body to become use to the new mattress materials. Your body may be conformed to your old mattress and how that feels so it may be a while to your body becomes adjusted to the new supportive mattress. Allow for up to eight weeks for your body to adjust to the new mattress. People are allergic to certain type of materials so you may want to check the materials of the mattress.
One thing to keep in mind is the mattress maybe thick or tough because of it being new. These days, mattresses are created to be thicker by the manufacturer then those built in the past. The bed may also be available at different heights than your older mattress. It may be further from the floor or lower to the floor. Keep in mind headboards and footboards can be adjusted to change to make the size of the bed to match the size of it. Another issue that comes up is your current bed sheets may not fit the new mattress so it may be best as a rule of thumb to purchase new sheets that accommodate your new bed. Deep pocket sheets can fit your new mattress which will make it more comfortable and easier to adjust too.
So remember to keep in mind that it will take some time to adjust to your new mattress and that it may not feel right at first. Give it time to conform to your body and allow your body to adjust to the new mattress before deciding if it is right for you or not. If you decide too early that it may not be the right fit, you may be missing out on the quality sleep your body deserves in the end. Good luck with your new mattress and happy sleeping!
