Reasons why you need to change your mattress
Over the course of your life you spend about a third of your time in bed. Your sleep is so important to your overall mood, relationships with your friends and colleagues and most of all your health. A lack of sleep can lead to health problems, depression and reduced performance at work.
If you have an older mattress did you know it could be home to tens of thousands of dust mites? These can live inside your mattress, feeding off of dead skin and fluids that are naturally released when you sleep.
Some older mattresses have been found to be twice their original weight and the cause - dust mites and dust mite waste. With a newer mattress, check that your mattress is dust mite resistant, it can help your mattress last longer and also provide health benefits.
It gets worn out
Tossing, turning, bouncing or whatever else you get up to on your mattress does eventually wear it out. Springs can lose their springiness and foams can lose their shape and sag.
Lack of support
With springs and foams losing their shape, you may find that over time a mattress doesn’t support your body in the way you used to. People’s body shapes are different and mattresses lose support across various areas over time.
Are you waking up in pain?
When you wake in the morning do you feel pain in your joints? Are you stiff? This is a tell tale sign that your mattress isn’t giving you the comfort and support that you need. Mattresses range in comfort, from soft to firm, identify your needs and shop around for the best mattress for your needs.
Are you waking up a lot in the night?
Do you wake up a lot in the night? Are you constantly turning over? Do you wake with pins and needles in your arms? This could be down to your mattress. A good mattress will help you get a wonderful night’s sleep, free from waking up with aches and pains.
Have you moved into someone else’s mattress?
It may sound disgusting, but are you sleeping on somebody else’s old mattress? Is your mattress from a rental property that has been used before? Have you moved in with a partner and are sleeping on their mattress? If so you could be sharing a bed with just more than your partner, from dust mites to bacteria and fluids.
Body shape changes over time
As you grow older your body shape changes and your bed needs to support your new shape. An increase in muscle, putting on weight and post pregnancy are often the biggest changes to a persons body shape. If you have an older mattress your sleep might be affected by how much it can support you. Does your mattress feel as good to sleep on as it did when you first purchased it?
