We've been searching for the best night's sleep as long as there have been beds and there are a lot of choices on the market.  Most of the time, we equate a higher price mattress as being better but perhaps the best night's sleep of your life may be on one of the cheapest mattresses on the market.  That's the advice of a top sleep expert who give s us two pieces of advice for a restful slumber. 1-stay up as late as you can and 2-don't waste money on expensive mattresses.  Here’s the drill.  Mattresses are meant to be replaced every 8 to 10 years.  Regardless of how much you spend, you bed needs replacement within 10 years.  Being there is no industry standard of comfortless, you may find a $400 mattress more comfortable to you than a $4,000 one. They also say don't wait, if you think you mattress needs replacement, do it even if it's just a couple years old, which is another reason for going with the cheaper versions. When testing out a mattress, lay in your natural sleeping position, however if you normally sleep on your right side, switch to your left for the test (if your less dominant side is comfy, your dominant side will definitely feel at home).  Lay without a pillow. If the mattress is right for you, your head, neck and spine should form a straight line. As for the sheets, stay away from cotton ones. Your bedding needs to be breathable so you can stay cool under the covers and for that reason, man-made materials are simply better, but if you insist on cotton, use a 300 tread count Egyptian version.  It's soft enough and breathable enough to keep you cool.  As for bedtime, no other way to get a proper night's sleep than staying away as long as possible.  It may take some adjusting with your alarm but you should train your body to sleep once on your bed.  Tossing and turning in bed causes you not to relax and therefore be more apt to be a Grumpy Gus in the morning.
