Should You Invest in a Mattress Topper?

A few weeks ago I was having severe back pain when I woke up.  I couldn’t understand where it was coming from.  I honestly thought it may have been due to my lack of exercise.  It actually forced me to get back into yoga.  I thought this form of exercise would help but every time I would wake up in the morning, I would have the same back pain and it felt as though it was getting worse.

One night, I decided to try sleeping on the other side of the bed and see if it was either me or the bed.  I woke up the next morning and there was immediate relief.  So that only left one other reason, the bed.  I rested my hand on both sides of the bed and felt a slight difference in the height of the bed.  There was a small dent due to me laying in the same spot for so long but the thing is, I haven’t had the bed for a year.

When I woke up the next morning, I heard God telling me that I needed to get a mattress topper.  I took a trip to Walmart and chose a mattress topper that was only $16.32! (see picture below)

Also check out my video of my mattress topper review on my stories on my Instagram page (@_janellew). Let me tell you, that was the best $16.32 I’ve ever spent for the quality of comfort I needed.  It provided an evenness on both sides of my mattress as I laid down.  I was so happy, I made bed angels lol.  There was immediate comfort and softness.  I’ve had the mattress topper for a couple of weeks and it still does wonders for my body as I’m able to sleep with ease.

My question to you is, Do you usually add a mattress topper to your bed when you first purchase it or do you just sleep on the bed itself?  I’ve realized that some people do this.  Even though they have a nice, expensive mattress, to make sure they have maximum comfort, they add an extra layer of padding.

I’ve learned my lesson and from now on, whether I have an expensive mattress or not, I will definitely add an extra layer so I don’t have to wait until I’m in pain to invest in one.
