How Your Mattress Is Affecting Your Health

For many people, good sleep can be elusive. There might be stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, or health issues at play, or physical problems such as not getting enough daily exercise or eating an unhealthy diet. For millions of Americans, a lack of adequate sleep means difficulty in getting through the day, being productive at work or school, and feeling like themselves. It’s also hard to be in a good mood when you feel exhausted or in pain, and this can affect just about every aspect of your life.

Your mattress is one of the keys to getting good sleep; it’s the foundation on which sound rest is built, meaning it’s important for your physical and mental health. The right mattress can help you feel relaxed, warmer or cooler, pain-free, or energized; it can help you get the rest you need after a long day, which will, in turn, allow you to be the best version of yourself you can be. 

Keep reading for some great tips on how to make the most of your mattress and feel better.

Upgrade

If your mattress is more than seven to 10 years old, it’s time to consider buying a new one. Do some research first; you’ll want to look at all the options and pay close attention to the material, the types of coils, and the firmness of them. If you’re a hot sleeper, for instance, a mattress with a cooling gel cover may be the best option. Bedding can be a big expense, so shop around to find the best price before making a decision.

Recycle Your Old Mattress

Throwing out a mattress means it ends up in a landfill, which contributes to your carbon footprint. The more eco-friendly thing to do is recycle it, or if it’s still in good shape, donate it. Keep in mind that many recycling centers won’t accept mattresses because they are too large and require breaking down, but if you break it down yourself, you can send the pieces their way. Read this guide for more information on how to recycle your bedding, which explains the individual pieces that make up a mattress and methods for disposing of them.

Reduce Pain

Mattresses are made with certain pressure points and firmness, and it’s important to choose the right type for your body’s needs. If you have chronic pain or a back injury, you need a mattress that will give you support in the correct areas. When shopping, keep in mind that you’ll need to think about the type of sleeper you are; do you tend to lie on your side, stomach, or back? Does your neck hurt when you get up in the morning? If so, you need a mattress with support at the top that will keep your spine aligned. Read on here for more tips on choosing the right mattress.

Care for Your Mattress Properly

Caring for your mattress the right way will keep it in good shape for years to come. This means fitting it with a waterproof cover, spreading weight evenly across it to help it keep its structure, and flipping it around so it will wear evenly. It’s also a good idea to make sure the kiddos know not to jump around; not only could this cause an accident, it’s bad for the springs in the mattress.

The right mattress and bedding can have a profound effect on the amount of sleep you get each night, which, in turn, can have a major effect on the way you feel and how you get through the day. With the correct mattress, you can rest well and prevent pain and exhaustion from setting in.
