Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

Are you a NEET OP? Many of the NEETs I've know sleep around 12 hours a day or more on average.

get a body pillow. best decision you will ever make. also be sure to think about the arrangement of your spine in your bed. don't elevate your head too much or it can cause neck pain.

getting physical exercise also helps improve the quality and volume of my sleep. no better way to fall asleep than being exhausted.

Invest in a good mattress. A high quality one will last for several years, and since you spend a huge chunk of your life literally using it, it might as well be high quality.

Also be wary of your room's temperature and excessive things like blankets. I sleep with a lot of plushies of my waifu so things can get somewhat hot, especially during the summer. Also make sure you have a comfortable pillow. Replace your pillows about once a year.

This is true, but I am absolute hell on mattresses for some reason. I spent about 1500 on one, which is expensive for me, and I made it all saggy and shit in like 6 months anyway. I don't know what to do beyond saving up for a few years to buy like a 6000 dollar matress, which I'll probably destroy in under a year anyway.

The quality of your sleep will improve if you do cardio exercises and eat a good amount of vegetables and drink a good amount of water. It's all connected to good health.

Yeah don't go for $6000. $1500 should be a fine range. If it starts to sag like that so early, try flipping it over and use that side for a few months.
>> No. 29481 [Edit]
I think the problem is that I bought one that doesn't flip over. I've tried sleeping on different ends on all different four corners, but nothing seems to have helped. Now where ever I try to sleep, I just roll into the sag, and it's only been a year or so. I'm highly disappointed and frustrated because this is the third mattress I bought in the last three years.

Where have you being buying your mattresses? I think you have been severely ripped off. I got a 10-inch-hight memory foam mattress for like €800 a couple of years ago and it's still perfect (and can be flipped over but I didn't have to so far. I've been gaining weight like crazy, to the point I'd consider myself morbidly obese now... and still no issues.

I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.

I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Buy goose down, some plain white bed or simple sheets, and a cheap sewing machine. If you can figure it out, this is the ultimate in comfy.

Consistent sleep schedule is important.

Try a buckwheat pillow. I recently got one and it really helped my neck pain and I think I sleep more deeply. The key is the ability to mould it to your desired position, and then as you shift throughout the night it's very easy to adjust the pillow to maintain support.

Modern mattresses are a scam. They use foams that are basically designed to break down in 2 years, so you're forced to keep buying them. Notice how it's basically impossible to buy the "traditional" basic innerspring mattresses of yore (which you can get 10-15 years out of by flipping over and rotating once in a while). And the memory foam ones will heat you up at night, since you're basically sleeping on insulation.

After doing a lot of research, the best option seems to be just going to costco or some other brick and mortar shop (NOT a mattress store, which have also interestingly all become conglomerated and owned by a single company) and buying the cheapest, firmest mattress with springs you can tolerate. The key is to get one that has springs and also the thinnest amount of foam possible. You can always add foam yourself, but you can never replace foam on a mattress that has it built in.

Do you sleep on your side or on your back? Sleeping on the floor would be torture for me since it means all the pressure is concentrated on my hips and shoulder.

You can also try a futon if you like sleeping on the floor. Also the Chinese supposedly have very hard beds. In terms of whether it's better for your back, it's generally true that if you sleep on your back then a firmer surface is better. So yeah sleeping on a carpet or padded floor is probably fine; but I think sleeping on bare hardwood with a non-plush padding is probably overkill?

And yeah you really don't need fancy foams or anything to sleep well, despite all the marketing from mattress companies. Just a relatively simple spring for support and light padding would do, but you can't buy such simple things anywhere (aside from crap from China that's probably stuffed with asbestos).

Spring mattresses are uncomfortable and loud in my experience. I associate them with old people and the convertible sofas you find in hotels.
