Why It's Bad To Sleep On An Old Mattress
Here are a few basic points that most people know: you need sleep to function; you need good sleep to function well; and little to no sleep leads to less productivity at work, irritability, and a host of health issues (high blood pressure, weight gain, diabetes, etc.).
A major cause for you not sleeping well is your mattress. You sleep on it for years, but do you ever think about your mattress? How old is it? How long have you had it? Does it smell, but you’ve just gotten used to it?
OLD MATTRESSES BREED MORE THAN CONTEMPT
Older mattresses are filled with allergens that can keep you awake by triggering allergic reactions, such as sneezing, wheezing, coughing, etc. Over time, your mattress becomes filled with skin flakes, a main food source for dust mites. Dust mites can spawn millions of other mites during the time you own your bed. While you sleep, you can breathe in microscopic bits of dust mite excrement, as well as noxious fumes from chemicals that are starting to break down in an older mattress.
YOUR BODY CHANGED, BUT NOT YOUR MATTRESS
As your mattresses ages it may no longer be able to correctly support your body properly, and that can cause you to lose sleep. As time passes your body changes. Pregnancy, weight loss or gain can all significantly change the type of support you need to get a great night's sleep. Elite mattress stores offer a diagnostic system that matches you with the mattress best suited for your body type and sleeping position. You just lie down, answer a few questions, and over 1,000 scientific calculations will help pick your ideal mattress. On top of that bed shops like the Bed King often have great bed specials - so you can find the mattress that is right for your body, as well as your pocket!
GREAT SLEEP IS IN THE DETAILS
Perhaps you have a new mattress, but you’re still having problems sleeping. The problem may be your pillow. A pillow that properly supports your head and aligns your neck while sleeping is an essential part of getting a good night's sleep. While the $10 two-pack of pillows available at the local megastore might seem like a good deal, those pillows aren’t fitted to your needs and they collapse much sooner, causing you to replace them frequently.
Mattress Warehouse has a full range of pillows that are suited for how you sleep, whether it be on your side, your stomach, or on your back. A good, supportive pillow will help you sleep better throughout the night.
During the Mattress Warehouse Presidents’ Day Sale, you can save up to 60% off mattresses from top brands including Serta and Sealy, plus luxury pillows from Sealy start at just $50.
