The Right Time to Find a New Mattress

The Right Time to Find a New Mattress

It's time for a new mattress. You might not realize it, but most people have been sleeping on the same mattress for 10 years or more. That's right: it's been that long since you were last able to wake up feeling refreshed and energized after a good night's rest in your own bed. And while that may seem crazy to you now, it makes sense once you understand how mattresses work and why quality matters — especially when it comes to choosing one that works best for your body type, sleeping habits, and overall health needs.

How to find the perfect mattress for your body and needs.

When you're shopping for a new mattress, it's important to make sure that the bed is right for your body and needs. First, test the firmness of any mattress by lying down on it. If the mattress feels too firm or too soft, move on--you won't be able to get comfortable if you choose one of these beds!

If you find a bed that seems just right, then congratulations: You've found yourself an awesome new place to sleep! But don't stop there; now it's time to check whether this particular brand has comfort options available as well.

How old is your mattress?

How old is your mattress? If it's more than 10 years old, it may be time to replace it. As with other things we own, mattresses can wear out over time. If you're not sure how long a mattress should last, there are some telltale signs that can help determine whether it's time for a new one:

  • You wake up sore every morning. A comfortable night's sleep is essential for good health and well-being; if your current mattress causes pain when you get up in the morning or leaves you feeling stiff after sleeping on it all night, then it might be time for an upgrade!
  • Your partner snores loudly through their nose. Allergies and sinus infections are common causes of snoring; if they're keeping you awake at night while they sleep soundly beside you without issue, consider getting them a separate bed so that both of your restful nights are restored!
  • You feel like you sleep better in hotels.
  • You can feel lumps in the mattress and notice sagging or tears in the fabric.
  • You’re sneezing and sniffling more at night. (Mattresses trap a lot of allergens over long periods of time)


So, what are you going to do? We hope this article has helped you understand how to find the right mattress for your body and needs. If you're still on the fence about getting a new one, give it a shot! You have nothing to lose but an old mattress that isn't working for your body anymore.
