So I’ve been hearing all this stuff about how having the proper firmness on your bed can solve all sorts of problems - from back and neck pain to being more rested and getting a better sleep yadda yadda yadda.
Yet I’ve never come across anything that tells you how to determine what the proper firmness is! Is there a way to determine how soft or firm my bed should be for maximum effect? I realize it’s different for each person, but since noone I know is a so called ‘sleep technician’, it all seems like a lot of guesswork.
Currently I have a firm mattress with a memory foam pad on it, and a feather bed on the top. While it’s extra comfy when lying down on it, I wonder if it’s maybe too soft for sleeping on. Is there any sort of way to determine how I should adjust it, short of making a change, trying it out for month or two and then reevaluating? That could take a year or more!
