Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for wellbeing, and a good mattress can be the key to success. A bad mattress doesn’t just affect sleep, but it can also have a negative impact on your mental health, and also your breathing. Here we discuss some of the most obvious signs of a bad mattress, meaning it might be time to invest in a new one.
Body pain in the mornings
A good mattress shouldn’t sag in the middle, despite this being the place where we put most of our weight. If your mattress has sagged, you might wake up with a sore or stiff back or muscles. It’s easy to assume that you’ve slept in a strange position and this is the cause of the aches, however, you don’t want to ignore this for too long. There’s a higher chance of getting badly injured if you experience this for nights on end. You could even use a measuring tape to see if there is any visible sagging in the middle of your mattress.
Waking up tired
Although there are many factors that might affect the quality of our sleep, a bad mattress is one of them. If you’re not comfortable in bed, you might have tossed and turned all night in an attempt to find a comfy position, in which case, it’s pretty obvious why you feel tired the next morning. In some cases, however, you might wake up feeling fatigued despite thinking you had slept through the night. A bad mattress may be causing conditions such as sleep apnea, or other breathing problems, which are sometimes harder to recognise.
Waking up feeling congested
You may have hay fever, but that doesn’t mean your blocked nose isn’t being caused by a bad mattress. The longer you’ve had your mattress, the more dust mites will accumulate. We know, it’s not a nice thought, but most of us sleep without even realising they are there. However, waking up feeling as though you have allergies might be a tell-tale sign of some intruders.
