02 Jul Is Your Mattress Trying To Tell You Something?
Every night when you lay down to sleep it should be like a symphony of cozy comfort. If you are not hearing the harmony of your mattress and your body together, it might be that you are sleeping on the wrong mattress. But how can you tell? Here are a few of the things that your mattress might be trying to tell you.
“I’m Breaking Down”
It is a bad sign when you can feel the insides of your mattress poking at you while you try to sleep. The coils and innersprings of traditional mattresses are designed to support your body, but when they start to wear down it becomes harder and harder for them to provide the support you need. As they loosen and lose their ability to support you, they often start to poke through the mattress material, and that’s when you know it’s time to get to 2 Brothers Mattress for a new one.
“I Have Seen Better Decades”
It is true that buying a new mattress is a significant purchase, which is probably why so many people use hand-me-down mattresses. If your current mattress was passed down from your parents, or even their parents before them, chances are it has seen better years—or even better decades. The average mattress will last about a decade (or less, depending on body weight, sleep style, other wear and tear, etc.), and should be upgraded as it wears out. However, if you do dispose of a mattress, make sure to find a local place where you can recycle it so it will not end up in a landfill.
“I Could Use a Good Cleaning”
Your mattress goes through a lot. Even if you just use it for sleeping, it will collect dust, allergens, sweat, and plenty of other things over the course of its useful life. If you use your bed for work, watching television, eating snacks, and drinking coffee, you might find that it collects even more stains over time. If you are embarrassed to look at your mattress without sheets on it because it is covered in spots and stains, it’s probably a good idea to get to 2 Brothers Mattress in Utah to buy a new one.
“Remember What a Great Time We Had in College?”
Our bodies change as we age, which is why it’s important to get a new bed every few years. If you are still sleeping on the same bed that you had in college, your body has changed and it’s probably not offering the right level of support. Back then you were probably more resilient and could bounce out of bed in the morning, but as you continue to age you might find those mornings are getting a little more painful without the proper bed support.
“I’m a Little Low in the Middle”
Like a favorite pair of shoes or that worn out recliner that you love, a saggy bed can seem like kind of a sentimental thing—you have been through so much with it. Unfortunately you are the one who suffers from this emotional attachment to an uncomfortable and unsupportive bed. Instead of suffering, get rid of your attachment to the bed and realize it’s time to move on.
Listen to what your bed is telling you—chances are if it’s an older bed, it is telling you that the best choice is to go and get a new one.
