Is Your Bed Stopping You From Getting A Good Nights Sleep?

Do you wake up in the morning with a sore neck, back ache or perhaps you’re just aching all over?
.
Well your bed might actually be the cause of you not getting a good night’s sleep.
.

How so? Well if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions your bed is probably to blame.
.
1. Do you have any saggy or lumpy bits in your mattress?
.
2. Is your mattress over 7 years old?
.
3. Have you ever visited a friend’s place or stayed at a hotel and had a better night’s sleep in their bed?
.
Well it might be time for you to buy a new mattress.
.
You see your bed should not only be comfortable (no lumpy bits), but it must also give you plenty of support as well. Studies have shown that people sleep much better if their bed is under 7 years old as it is much stronger and therefore can provide you with much better support.
.
The size of your bed is also important. If you’re a couple then you should be sleeping in a Queen Size bed at the very least. A double bed is way too small for two people because you end up bumping and kicking each other during the night and neither of you end up getting a restful night’s sleep!
.
So have a good look at your mattress … if it’s old and starting to show it’s age, it might be time for an upgrade.
.
P.S – Oh and don’t forget your pillow! A good pillow will ‘cradle’ your neck and support your head to keep it in alignment with your spine. If it doesn’t then it might be time to send it to ‘pillow heaven!’

  1. No, My bed is quite new, 6ft wide across, no lumpy bits (only me!) New anti allergic pillow and I don't sleep well any where!!!
    Back to the drawing board then….LOL XXX

  2. These are important tips. I remember the first time that I purchased my first good mattress. I rolled around mattresses for an hour in Sealy one day until I found the perfect one. 10 years later I still love my bed. Happy Thanksgiving [in America] and get some rest.

  3. My bed is fairly new and it still keeps me up at night. Rather, I think it's our overworked pillows that are the culprits.

    My best, Lynn

  4. Great advice!!! We changed to a Select Comfort mattress (air) about 14 years ago…and I have slept so much better ever since…I no longer toss and turn!!! Terrific post!! ~Janine XO
