When I can't sleep, I blame red wine, lack of exercise, caffeine after noon or being stressed out. My mind never goes to my mattress. Still, it is an alluring fantasy to believe that with the right mattress it wouldn't matter how much wine I drank, how little I exercised or how stressed out I was -- I would still sleep like a baby, my spine would realign and I would awake every day refreshed, beautiful and rejuvenated. My mattress could be the acupuncture, spa treatment and Ambien of my sleep world.
Not likely, sleep experts say.
