Some people need very soft cushioning to prevent extensive pressure on primary pressure points in the body, while others need a firmer mattress for support and alignment. Lower back pain and tension carried in the shoulders are often reported symptoms that come from a poor choice in mattress. And beyond these more visible consequences, other problems develop without the sleeper even noticing – a bad mattress causes less restful sleep, resulting in less energy and motivation the following day. Lethargy from poor sleep can be difficult to attribute to a particular cause, and often go undiscovered until the person changes mattresses. To avoid such issues consider natural latex mattresses that offer the properly customized support level. That way, sleep becomes what it should be – restful and revitalizing.
