Experts say you should replace your mattress every seven years. After seven years it will have lost its original support and comfort. So why are so many people still sleeping on an old, worn-out mattress? A lot of people couldn’t even tell you how old their mattress is. If you aren’t sleeping well, waking up tired, or feeling sore, then it is time to consider getting a new mattress. At Restwell Mattress, we know that a quality mattress is the key in achieving and maintaining a healthy body and mind. Consider the following life changing benefits of purchasing a new mattress.
The proper supportive mattress will reduce tossing and turning and give you a more restful night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep has been shown to keep your immune system strong. A stronger immune system helps you stay healthy and fight off illness. Sleep also provides an opportunity for the body to repair and rejuvenate itself. Most of the major restorative functions in the body like muscle growth and tissue repair occur while you sleep. If you have asthma or suffer from allergies, you will definitely want to make sure to replace your mattress as recommended. Older mattresses can be a breeding ground for dust mites, mold, and other allergens. Dust mite allergies can cause sneezing, runny noses, itchiness, watery eyes, coughing, and sinus pressure. Long term sleep deprivation can lead to more serious chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
If you are waking up feeling stiff and sore, it could be your mattress. As a mattress ages it becomes lumpy, saggy, and less supportive, making it harder to find a comfortable sleeping position. Old and worn-out mattresses cannot provide the necessary support your body needs for a restful sleep. It can lead to pain in the back, spine, shoulders, and neck. These pains can make it harder to fall asleep, and a vicious circle begins. Chiropractors agree that sleeping on an old mattress is a recipe for chronic neck and back pain.
Lack of sleep also affects your psychological well-being. A bad night of tossing and turning leaves you feeling cranky, sluggish, and stressed out. It interferes with your ability to concentrate and think clearly. Studies show that excessive sleepiness can hurt work and school performance, impeding your memory and ability to learn. It may also make it difficult to keep your emotions in check and wreak havoc on relationships. Long-term lack of quality sleep can cause depression and anxiety.
The bottom line is that sleep, or lack of sleep, pretty much affects every area of your life. A quality mattress, replaced on a regular basis, will help ensure you are getting the rest you need to stay happy and healthy.
