A mattress is something we use every day. We spend at least one third of our lives in bed, and yet many people put off replacing their mattresses when they stop being comfortable. What’s worse than sleeping on a lumpy old mattress? This guide will help you decide if it’s time to finally upgrade.
1. You wake up with aches and pains
Are you waking up stiff and tired every morning? Old mattresses gradually lose the ability to provide proper support and therefore cause painful pressure points from springs and aged dips in the mattress. As the mattress layers lose their compression, your mid-section will sag into the mattress causing improper body alignment. This can create significant pain in the neck, shoulders and back. Morning neck and back pain that gets better throughout the day is a sign that you need a new mattress.
New individual support technology, used in the SleepOvation mattress, provides optimal body alignment and pain relief regardless of your sleep position. How? With 700 tiny foam mattresses atop individual springs, the construction relieves a pressure points throughout the body giving you a pain-free, great nights rest.
2. You don’t feel rested when you wake
If you get a proper night’s sleep you should wake up feeling refreshed and rested. If you’re waking up tired and feeling drowsy during the day it may be due to too much tossing and turning throughout the night. Your body is working overtime to find a comfortable sleeping position that does not exist.
3. You’re tossing and turning all night
Tossing or turning is a common sign you should replace your mattress. If you struggle with finding a comfortable position or feel your partner's every move, you probably spend more time stressing than sleeping.
4. Other places feel more comfortable
If you find yourself going into another bedroom to sleep or prefer the couch to your bed, this is a fairly good indication that you should consider a new mattress. Same goes if you find that you are sleeping better on a hotel mattress when you go away on vacation.
5. You’re sneezing more than snoozing
From sweat to dust and other allergens, mattresses provide a perfect opportunity for these pesky particles to get some rest, too. Anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites call your mattress home over the years, and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation considers it a leading cause of allergies. In-bed sneezes mean a new mattress, and trust us, sweet dreams await. Consider a new mattress like SleepOvation Mattress with a removable, washable cover.
6. Your mattress is over 8 years old
Be honest, do you even know when you purchased your current mattress? Long term relationships are good, but not with your mattress. 5-10 years is the recommended time to replace your mattress, 7-8 years being the optimal time.
