Think You Need a New Mattress? Your Body Will Let Your Know

Think You Need a New Mattress? Your Body Will Let Your Know

A mattress matters to your overall health and well-being, so why do so many people neglect a good night’s sleep? Consumer reports recommend a new mattress every 7 to 10 years. Shocked? Most people are. Many folks can’t remember when they bought their mattress! If you know it’s older than a decade, it’s time to start looking.

But your body may also be telling you it’s time to shop around. Here’s a few things to look for:

• You move all night
Constantly shifting position? If you can’t get comfy in bed, that’s a pretty sure sign you need a new mattress. Don’t let old springs push on sensitive pressure points. You need a quality mattress that evenly distributes weight.

• Allergies
If you find that your allergies seem worse at night or first thing in the morning, it may be time for a new mattress. Dust mites are a huge cause of most allergies. Those little mites love an old mattress. Memory foam and waterbeds are a good way to keep dust mites at bay.

• Your back hurts
This is one of the most common reasons for replacing an old mattress. Old mattresses will gradually lose the ability to provide proper support. As the layers lose their compression and shape, your body will no longer feel supported in the mattress. This typically manifests in forms of backaches and pains.

• Constant Headaches
This could be side effect from the allergies created by your older mattresses, and it can also be a sign of terrible shoulder and neck support. If you are waking with a headache more often than not, your old mattress could be to blame.

Any of this sound familiar? Then it may be time to replace that old mattress with a new more supportive one! Don’t let your sleep suffer for a problem that easy to fix. Be the best you with a comfy new mattress.
