Patience Is A Virtue
Out with the old, in with the new. When it comes to mattress shopping, people expect near instant gratification. We value sleep greatly, as it can ultimately be the deciding factor of how well our day goes. Breaking in your mattress is an important process on the journey to great sleep.
That’s why it is very important to understand that breaking in your mattress is a vital part of your new purchase.
Why Do I Need To Break My Mattress In?
You hear it all the time that some people become sore and have new aches and pains after sleeping on their new mattress. This isn’t happening because of a poorly made or defunct mattress. Odds are, you had your previous mattress for many years.
After sleeping on it for so long, your body becomes fixated with the mattress, and the mattress becomes fixated with you.
This all has to do with muscle memory. Your body adjusts itself to the environment it’s around, and when there is a sudden change, it takes a little bit for your body to fully adjust. This is why most mattress companies recommend around 30 days for a break-in period.
However, even that long might not be enough for some people. Amore beds offers a 100-night sleep trial, so you can become fully acclimated with your new mattress. If you’re still not satisfied after 100 nights, you can return your mattress free of charge, and receive your money back.
Another contributor to an uncomfortable sleep experience could be your foundation. If you’re mattress box spring, foundation, or bed frame is old and worn out, it can cause your new mattress to feel just like your old one. Much like building a house, if the foundation is poor then everything on top will suffer the consequences. Make sure to check your foundation to see if it’ll fully support your new mattress.
Different Sleep Positions Can Feel Better
When getting a new mattress, your sleeping positions will likely change as well. Side sleepers tend to have the biggest battle with this. Some folks are able to sleep exactly on their side, while others are able to shift slightly to their partial side & stomach, or partial side & back. You really don’t want all your pressure bearing straight down onto your shoulder, so be mindful that it may make sense to adjust your sleeping position as needed. You should even try leaning against another pillow to help relieve some of that pressure building up in one spot. Just remember, what works on one mattress may not be the most comfortable position on another mattress.
So, don’t make any rash decisions after purchasing your mattress. Returning it for a different one will put you right back at square one. Your body takes time to accommodate change.
When you first start running or working out and feel sore the next day you don’t just give up. So, don’t give up on your mattress. Your body is simply adjusting to its new surroundings.
You spent a lot of effort and time into deciding which mattress to go with, so let the mattress have some time to get used to you, as well.
When purchasing a new mattress, be sure to research it thoroughly to know what you’re getting into. Breaking in your mattress is a timely process. When everything finally falls into place, you will love the way you sleep!
