When Bobby Berk, the design expert from Netflix’s hit “Queer Eye,” shares his advice about where to shop home decor, fans are all ears—especially now with so many revamping their homes. Berk just revealed the one bedroom item that he feels is worth splurging on, and it’s all about where you lay your head at night.

When it comes to physical and mental health benefits, Berk told CNBC Make It that a solid, comfy mattress is worth investing in. Berk’s first big purchase at the start of his career was a quality mattress—a welcome change from his old air mattress that often had holes in it. Berk said that at the time, getting a new, comfortable mattress “was the most luxurious thing in the world” to him.

It’s true that links between quality sleep and your mental health and physical health are numerous, with researchers from Harvard Medical School noting that sleep deprivation can increase risk of anxiety, depression, and attention issues. Getting enough deep sleep each night can help boost your immune system, which means you’ll be better equipped to fight off illness during your waking hours—which is especially important these days.

If you’ve already got a mattress you love, Berk recommended treating yourself to luxe bedding, pillows, and sheets—“anything to do with the bed” is worth spending a little extra on. If you end your day in a good mood, Berk said that’s how you’ll start the next day, too.
