How do you feel in the morning? Experts say the way you start your day is a result of how you spend your night? Do you have a mattress that is old and frumpy? If so it might be time to buy a new mattress.
But how do you know when it is time to upgrade your sleeping pad? Here are things to look for when buying a new mattress. Before you go to the mattress store you want to ask yourself these key questions.
How well do you currently sleep?
Do you go to bed with back pain, neck pain and deep aches? When you wake up in the morning do you feel the same way as the night before? Do you have aches and pains all over your body? If this is the case then you most likely need a new mattress. When we sleep we are suppose to rest and restore our body. If you mattress is a good mattress you will wake up feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. However, if you are waking up in more pain, then this is a good indicator that your mattress needs a replacement.
Where is Your Bed?
In general there is no standard for how long you will have your mattress. The type of fabric, the material, the location, environment etc. will all play into how long you can keep your mattress. In general around 6-8 years is a good indicator of when it might be a good time to look at purchasing a new one.
Look at your mattress if there are holes, wear and tear etc. This is also an indicator that you might want to upgrade. Other things to consider are where the bed is located. Is it a guest bed for the guesthouse or guest room? Is it at your beach house, or in the basement for the children who have sleepovers? The more use the bed gets the more it will wear down. Think about the location and how often it is used when choosing to purchase a new mattress.
Sometimes aches and pains are not the only thing keeping you up and night. The number one reason couples sleep in other rooms is not because of an uncountable bed but because of snoring. If you snore it may be a deeper health issue that you might not be aware of. Some snoring cases have been linked to a dental oral health issue. If you snore or have a hard time sleeping at night you may want to visit your dentist they can help. Doctor Andrew Thompson, a Dentist in Banks, OR can help with poor sleep patterns.
