The Advantages of Sleeping on a Memory Foam Mattress

Last updated 6 years ago

You may have heard of the many advantages to sleeping on a memory foam mattress. Memory foam has been in use for over 50 years and holds many benefits, so keep reading to see what makes this type of mattress so desirable in achieving a better night’s sleep.

What Is Memory Foam? Originally created in the 1960s by NASA, memory foam is designed to be soft, comfortable, and energy-absorbent, meaning it can diminish motion transfer from tossing and turning, sitting, or shifting on the bed. When you lie on a memory foam mattress, the material molds around your body, supporting it evenly until you get up again. When the mattress is not in use, it reforms to its original shape. When choosing a memory foam mattress, it’s important to try out as many as you can, because memory foam mattresses are manufactured with different densities and depths, from soft to firm and everything in between, to appeal to a wide range of sleepers.

What Are the Advantages of Memory Foam? Because it molds to and supports your body, a memory foam mattress can help minimize pain caused by pressure on your joints and pressure points, resulting in more comfortable sleep all night long. The mattress also supports your spine for healthy sleeping posture and less pain during the day. Additionally, if you and your partner have different sleep schedules or one of you tends to move or toss a lot, a memory foam mattress will keep that motion from transferring to the other partner and disrupting his or her sleep.
