Considering that we spend a third of our lives lying on our mattress, it's important to know when it's time to change our bed.
When to change your bed
Waking in pain, stiff or sore
First of all, if you wake with pain, stiffness or soreness, it is probably time to get things changed around in the bedroom. These are obvious symptoms, but you can also judge whether your mattress is no good by the amount of quality sleep you get, and whether you feel comfortable all the way through the night.
Sleeping better away from home
If you ever sleep out, or maybe spend a night in a hotel room where you get more or better sleep than you would do at home, this is also a sign that your sleep quality could be being impacted by external factors, such as your mattress. Physically checking the quality of the bed, by testing the efficiency of the springs or checking for wear and tear can give you a good indication over whether this may be the case.
Choosing your new mattress
Once you have diagnosed the problem, searching for a treatment can be just as arduous. This is because choosing a mattress is not as simple as walking into a store and selecting the first item you see. It is also not as simple as getting the price that suits your wallet and you should bear in mind that this is a purchase that will last for several years. Mattress technology has improved significantly in the past few years, and it is now one of the most tailor-made consumer products available on the market. Manufacturers understand that sleeping is a very personal thing to do, and everybody has a different sleeping style or posture.In this way, choosing a mattress is all about you. If you know that you sleep in constant postures throughout the night, materials such as the memory foam mattress offer the most support and also superior amounts of comfort. For those that are more restless, mattresses such as the Miracoil mattress performs similarly to the memory foam, but allows for a little more movement.
