6 Important Tips For Buying A New Mattress Online

6 Important Tips For Buying A New Mattress Online

Buying a mattress online can be sort of confusing, and this is because of the fear of not getting a high-quality and standard mattress, which you can enjoy over a long period of time without complaints.

Here are some helpful tips on how you can judge and select the best mattress online before dipping your hand into your wallet to buy one.

1. Is the Mattress Brand Known and Trusted?

The first step you should consider taking is finding out if the brand of the mattress is trusted; one that guarantees you of a comfortable and enjoyable usage of the mattress over a long period of time.

You should consider going for a trusted brand that guarantees its prospective customers an outstanding experience in using their products instead of an unknown brand name.

2. Check the Density of the Mattress

High-density foams are more durable and they always last longer. From consumer surveys, it has been known that memory foam mattresses have the highest owner’s satisfaction in the industry since the 1990s.

Many companies use less of memory foam, and this is because it is the most expensive part of the foam. These companies rather go for the usage of latex, conventional foam or fluffy covers, conversely claiming it is better, just to reduce the cost of production.

3. Check for the Maintainability of the Mattress

You should always consider a mattress that has a removable and washable cover. The mattress can get very dirty and should have the feature of being cleanable and washable.

Zippers seem to be the most expensive cover component and this is why most companies do not include them in mattresses, thereby creating a problem in cleaning up of mattresses cover, unlike the mattress cover that has a zipper, making it washable.

4. Are you being offered free firmness adjustment as part of the sleep trial?

If your mattress seems too soft or too hard, some online companies will offer you a free tapper, this saves you the extra cost of buying that tapper from a store.

This makes buying mattresses online a much better option than buying in a store. Nevertheless, most new online brands offer you only one option of firmness, which may force you into using a mattress that is not perfect for you.

5. Check the thermal comfort of the mattress

Look beyond the cooling gimmicks some online companies may market; confirm if it will be too hot to sleep on it. Two good ways of reducing heat build-up in mattresses are airflow and moisture wicking.

Instead of using real airflow and moisture wicking technology, most companies go for alternative chemical additives, which are not proven to be able to reduce the heat build-up in those mattresses during its usage at night.

These companies use low-cost alternative materials such as low-density lofty covers (pillow tops); there is no doubt that this can help sleep cooler, but it can separate you from the memory foam, thereby causing body indentations.

6. Is the Return Policy Free and Works on your Terms?

Before you purchase, be sure to check the return policy to see if it works in your terms. Several companies offer favorable return policies, like the Novosbed comfort+ option return policy invented in 2009, that ensures you get all your money back if you return your mattress due to unsatisfactory conditions, just after the company’s 120 nights’ trial.

Although most companies have followed this route since then, some still charge a restocking fee or do not even refund or cover your shipping expense, conversely doing this just to discourage you from returning the mattress, thereby making you settle for what seems imperfect to you. However, some companies may ask you to find and organize donation, and provide the evidence in order to get a refund.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Who You Are

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out.

When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

So how to be who you are and always be yourself?

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself? Because you will:

1. Live in Alignment With Your Values and Beliefs

Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking.

When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.

2. Establish Your Own Identity

When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are.

There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.

3. Build Courage

It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy.

It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.

4. Establish Boundaries

When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know.

But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you.

Create and establish your boundaries.

5. Find Focus and Direction

When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations, do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so.

When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
