How are you enjoying your new mattress thus far? Investing in a great mattress is an excellent step to improving your health, as you’ll be able to reap of the benefits of higher sleep quality. You spend one third of your life sleeping and deserve the best support during that time.
When you purchase a new mattress, it may not immediately feel as wonderful as it did in the store. Your body needs the opportunity to develop the same muscle memory for your new mattress as it had for the old one. The short, time honored tradition of breaking in your mattress will help you achieve optimal sleeping pleasure, making the process completely worth it.
Keep in mind that if you purchased a memory foam mattress, it typically has a strong smell for the first three days to three weeks before it airs out. Rest assured the breaking in and airing out process will be very short when compared to the lifetime of your great bed.
Try these quick tips for breaking in your mattress for a smoother transition:
1. Roll or walk on it — the extra movement helps the mattress to breathe.
2. Spend lots of time in bed to help the mattress adjust your body weight, try practicing relaxing activities such as reading or meditating to stay close to good sleep hygiene.
3. Don’t put sheets on until you have to — this will help the mattress air out, helping to eliminate the potential new mattress smell.
4. Rotate your mattress every couple months to keep it even.
