A high-quality mattress is important to make sure that you are comfortable enough to relax. It also ensures that your spine gets proper support to avoid aches and pains.
The mattress should be firm enough to support your spine, but also soft enough to conform to the shape of your body
Ideal sleeping environment
Make your bedroom a place of comfort and relaxation. Though this might seem obvious, it is often overlooked, contributing to difficulties getting to sleep and sleeping through the night.
1. On Your Back
By far the healthiest option for most people, sleeping on your back allows your head, neck, and spine to rest in a neutral position, ensuring that there’s no extra pressure on those areas, so you're less likely to experience pain.
2. On Your Side
This position helps to decrease acid reflux, and since your spine is elongated it wards off back and neck pain. You're less likely to snore in this posture because it keeps airways open. For that reason, it’s also the best choice for those with sleep apnea.
3. Fetal Position
This position (where you're on your side and your torso is hunched and your knees are bent)—especially on your left side—is great if you're pregnant. That's because it improves circulation in your body and in the fetus, and it prevents your uterus from pressing against your liver, which is on your right side. This pose is also good for snorers.
