You can't always control the environments that you interact in all day long—the office, schools, outdoors, stores, etc.—but if you can make your home more comforting, it can go a long way.

Find the Pillow of Your Dreams


We have customers at Mattress Mart who are very particular when it comes to selecting a mattress, and rightly so. But what about the pillows?

Choosing a Pillow to Help Neck Pain


One reason you may have trouble sleeping at night is neck pain. One reason you may have neck pain is you don't get enough sleep. You see the problem. If you don't break that cycle, the pain is only going to get worse. A new, properly build mattress can do wonders for your back, but there are two other issues that a new mattress can't deal with, pillows and you. The sleeping positions easiest on your neck are to lie on your side or on your back. Sleeping on your stomach arches your back and turns your neck to the side, putting stress on your muscles and disrupting their natural relaxation and healing that should happen when you're sleeping.

Take the Pressure Off When Buying a New Mattress

New Mattress

There are several signs you can look for, but the first thing to consider is how you feel right after you get up in the morning. "If you wake up in the morning and have some low back pain and can stretch and get rid of it in 15 or 30 minutes, that means you're on an inappropriate mattress for you," says Dr. Arya Nick Shaimie, an associate professor of orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center. Shaimie explained to WebMD that a mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position during your sleep so that your spine has a proper curvature, with head, shoulders, buttocks and even heels supported in proper alignment.

A New Years Resolution We Can ALL Keep!

New Year's Resolution

We all know what we need to do to be healthier: exercise more, eat better, etc. etc. But there could be one thing that we can do that will help us achieve all of our goals into and beyond February, and help you with those resolutions all year long.
