Mothers are the real superheroes. Instead of capes, they wear aprons. Instead of a powerful glove adorned with magical stones, they wore rubber cleaning gloves.
Our mothers took care of us, fed us, cleaned up after us, and they always made sure we sleep comfortably and safely when they themselves lost precious sleep time. Now that they’re aging, it’s up to us to make sure they get the restful and comfortable sleep they deserve at their stage of life.
If you’re still unsure about what to get your mom this Mother’s Day, trust when we say a good mattress is a perfect gift for her. Here are three reasons why you should get your mom a mattress this year:
1. A GOOD MATTRESS CAN REDUCE CHRONIC BACK, NECK, AND HIP PAIN
Ever heard your mother complain about back, neck, and hip pain? It’s not just the age factor, the mattress she sleeps on plays a role in it too. Not all mattress can provide the spinal support that the middle-aged and seniors require.
A good mattress can help align the spine and minimise pain and aches by distributing weight evenly. The more evenly weight is distributed across the mattress, the fewer pressure points there will be, which ultimately makes sleeping easier and more comfortable.
2. A GOOD MATTRESS HELP PROMOTE DEEP SLEEP
Have you ever noticed that your mother tends to sleep less at night and takes more naps during the day? Before you blame it on the age factor, know that the whole ‘the older you get, the less sleep you need’ talk is a complete myth.
The fact is, as we age, our sleeping patterns change according to our daily activities and state of health. However, that doesn’t change the amount of sleep we need (7 to 9 hours every night). Older adults tend to sleep less deeply during the night, resulting in frequent awake times or less sleeping time altogether.
This can be caused by various reasons such as discomfort, but movements on the bed can be a major factor too. Get your mom a mattress that reduces motion transfer to help her sleep deeper without any interruptions. Sonno mattress’s Zero Disturbance Technology can help with this.
3. A GOOD MATTRESS CAN HELP REGULATE BODY TEMPERATURE
No one likes to sleep hot, especially the older adults who are often sensitive to their sleeping environments. The problem is not always in the speed of the fan or air conditioner, as you might think.
If your mom complains about sleeping hot, take a closer look at her mattress. A pure foam mattress can retain body heat, causing its sleeper to feel warm at night and uncomfortable at night. To give your mom the best sleeping experience, choose a mattress that is made from materials that are breathable and cooling - such as latex.
The problem is, full latex mattresses tend to be too firm - not too mentioned pricey. A full latex mattress can reach a 5-digit figure, and while our mothers deserve the best, not everyone can afford to spend that amount of money.
Choose a mattress that offers a latex layer instead, such as Sonno mattress. It offers a layer of natural latex for maximum breathability and bounce, followed by a memory foam layer for healthy spinal support and airflow.
THE GIFT OF GOOD SLEEP
Our mothers have been by our sides through every step of our childhood, guiding us with love and tender care. Now that we’re grown-ups, let’s do our part to give her every comfort we can. Flowers, cakes, and scarves are all very well, but nothing says ‘I love you, mom’ like a Sonno mattress.
We know everyone has their own sleeping preference, that’s why we offer a 100-night trial period for you to take it home and let your mom try it in the comforts of her home. If she doesn’t like it, we’ll come and pick it up at absolutely no charge, and issue you a full refund!
