  • How to Shop with Your Partner for a Mattress

    He Wants This and You Want That: How to (Peacefully) Shop for a New Mattress

    Mattress shopping can be difficult enough, but what happens when you and your sleeping partner can’t agree on softness or support? When the two of you want two different things, it’s important to find a middle ground to ensure you make the right investment – we want to help.

    If you and your partner aren’t sleeping well, it’s more than likely starting to affect your relationship. Our Jacksonville, FL, sleeping experts see it all of the time. A lack of sleep can lead to being grouchier, more irritable, and even more depressed. Don’t let your mattress put a strain on your relationship, find the right one that suits both of your needs.

    Here are some important things to consider as a couple when purchasing a mattress in Jacksonville, FL:

    • Space & Size
    • Support
    • Comfort
    • Price

    Space & Size: No matter how in love you are with your significant other, you need space and room to sleep right. For instance, full-size mattresses are too narrow for too people thus reducing the duration and frequency of deep sleep.

    Support vs. Comfort Although you may not agree on the support you need vs. the comfort you want, it’s important to compromise. Our stores are very open so you and your partner can each lay on one side and see for yourself if it’s something you will enjoy and will improve your sleeping. Can’t compromise on this one? We have a solution for that as well. Try a memory foam mattress – the memory foam moves with you so if your partner turns and shifts a lot through the night, it won’t effect your sleep.

    Price Money is a number one reason why couples split up. Don’t let it happen to you and your partner over a mattress purchase. Choose a mattress that’s within your discussed budget and that you can agree on. Also, when choosing a mattress from Mattress 1, be sure to ask about our specials and discounts that we always have available.

    Our sleep experts enjoy working with couples to find the right mattress to meet both of your needs and budget. We will sit down with you to review both sets of needs then choose the right mattress to match it. Visit one of our locations across Northeast Florida today.

  • Comfort vs. Support

    Comfort vs. Support – Can You Get Both

    Our Jacksonville, FL, Sleep Experts Say YES!

    It’s a battle as old as time – can your mattress be both comfortable and supportive? Thanks to innovations and creative designs, there are new models from name brands that allow you to have it all and a good night sleep – who could want more?

    When you’re shopping for a mattress, you know there are two things to consider: comfort and support. And anyone who has slept on a lumpy mattress can tell you, these two terms are not interchangeable in terms of mattresses.

    What is the difference between support and comfort? Support refers to the ability of your mattress’s inner restructure to resist the downward pressure applied to it by the weight of your body. Material layers on the top of the innerspring offer comfort. It’s acquired through the use of firming pads and high-density foam.

    There are a lot of misconceptions about comfort and support. For instance, a firm mattress isn’t always ideal – even if you’re suffering from back or neck pain. In fact, most manufactures use the same exact innerspring in their firm, plush, and pillow-top mattresses.

    Different levels of comfort There are three different levels of comfort: firm, medium and soft.

    Firm mattresses offer a great level of support for the body by design. The mattress has an almost flat surface with very little padding.

    Medium mattresses have the same level of support as a firm mattress but are designed with a few extra layers of cushioning material sewn into the surface of the mat.

    Finally, soft mattresses offer the most in comfort. The soft mattresses include the same level of support as the firm and medium mattresses, but also include layers of soft fibers and foam sewn inside the surface.

    The level of comfort and support that you need to make the most of your eight hours of sleep is dependent on your physical needs. The best way to get started in choosing the right mattress that has comfort and support you need is to speak to a Jacksonville, FL, sleep expert at Mattress 1 One.

  • Remedies to Sleep Better

    Can’t sleep through the night? Try these remedies

    The busier we get, the less we sleep. Whether it’s stress, poor lifestyle habits, or being overworked, we often find ourselves tossing and turning more than we ever sleep. It’s time to change that. Here are some tricks and remedies to sleep better at night.

    Turn it off. Your television, your computer, your smart phone, they all emit a blue light that dramatically decreases your melatonin levels. If you fall asleep with television on or like to read emails before going to sleep, you won’t sleep as well or as long as you would if those devices were away from your bed. Make your nighttime ritual technology free to help build your natural melatonin levels – a hormone that is intimately involved in regulating the sleeping and waking cycles.

    Keep it on a schedule. If you’re one of those people that likes to go to bed “whenever you feel like it,” you’ll find it’s more difficult to fall asleep and to stay asleep. Strive to go to sleep at the same time, every night. Additionally, try to keep those weekend mornings you decide to sleep in to a minimum. Your body’s schedule is important to sleep better.

    Keep your naps short. After 30 minutes, it’s no longer a “nap.” For your body, you’re asleep. It’s important to keep naps between 20-30 minutes. It needs to be just enough time to recharge your batteries, but that’s it!

    Enhance your sleeping environment The best way for you to sleep better is to create the right environment to do so. Darken the room, turn off all lights, turn off the television and shift the lights of any bright alarm clocks. The dark room will help increase the production of melatonin levels.

    Invest in your sleep When all else fails, it might be the best time to invest in a better mattress. If you are staying on a sleep cycle, avoiding caffeine, and follow all of the necessary steps to sleep better but you’re still unable to get a solid 7-8 hours, visit us today. We’ll help you find a better mattress that offers your body the support and comfort it’s missing.
