Signs you need a new mattress

We’ve all been prone to a bad night’s sleep. But what happens when every night becomes a bad night’s sleep? We find ourselves tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable and only becoming frustrated at our inability to drift off. then may start to introduce new lifestyle habits, such as limiting time on electronics before bed, or cutting out caffeine.

But what happens if these habits aren’t working?

It might be that the problem lies in, well, what you’re lying in! Sleeping on a mattress that is past its best can cause a multitude of problems, from a lack of energy, to aches and pains, and even feeling low emotionally. At first it may not be obvious, in that you’ve become used to the mattress you currently own. But with so many lifestyle factors already impacting on our sleep, improving your sleeping arrangements could be the first step in achieving more peaceful nights, energetic days and a general boost in your mood. Indeed, your mattress can have a dramatic effect on your life – so it’s worth making sure that yours is suitable for you.

To help you decide on whether you think your mattress demands a change, Sleepeezee has listed 10 questions to ask yourself about your current mattress. If you are answering ‘yes’ to more than one, it is probably time for you to investigate getting a new mattress.

  5. Are you waking up more often in the night?
  6. Are you waking up with aches and pains?
  7. Are you finding your concentration and focus has got worse?
