Did you know that the average person spends 26 years of their life sleeping? This equates to about 9,490 days or 227,760 hours total. With so much of our life spent in bed, it’s necessary to find a mattress we love that’s comfortable and guaranteed to last over the years. 

If your mattress itself isn’t all too comfortable, not at hope is lost. Here are some steps you can take to enhance the overall comfortability and feel of your mattress.  

Mattress Topper 

A good night’s sleep is almost as dependent on your mattress topper as it is your mattress itself. So, when dealing with a less-than-ideal mattress, consider adding a memory foam topper to improve its comfortability. Memory foam will help ease any chronic pain from sleeping on a bad mattress by shaping directly to your body to provide a soft, yet firm feel. 

Mattress Pad 

Investing in a mattress pad is also a great way to improve your mattress and make it more comfortable. While similar to a topper, a mattress pad is thinner in nature to provide a soft, plush feel to your actual bed. There are many types of mattress pads, including down, foam, and cotton, and they offer varying levels of softness and support as well as overall protection for your mattress.


Adding a memory foam pillow to your bed is another easy way to improve the quality of your sleep. Just like their mattress topper counterpart, memory foam pillows help ease tension by conforming to your head and neck to provide just the right amount of support. 

If you are a hot sleeper, try adding a pillow with cooling features, which may reduce the need to constantly flip your pillow at night. Cooling pillows like the MLILY PowerCool Pillow are great for keeping you cool all night long. Plus, their ergonomic design is crafted to adapt to your head’s micro pressure points for a deeper, more regenerative night’s sleep. 

Quality Bedding 

High-quality bedding can be just as important as a good mattress when it comes to comfort. Investing in quality bedding, including sheets and pillowcases, is one easy thing you can do today to instantly upgrade your mattress. You’ll want to look for sheets and pillowcases that are breathable, soft, and durable.

Mattress Protector 

In addition to protecting against dust mites, fluids, urine, perspiration, and allergens, mattress protectors also offer comfort. By adding a mattress pad to your bed, you can rest easy knowing that you and your mattress are protected.

Despite all these steps, if you still find yourself lying in bed for hours trying to get comfortable, you may need to consider getting a new mattress.
