OLD MATTRESSES ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH
- Author: G9 Marketing lúc
Have you ever woken up tired, with back and shoulder pain, feeling like you did not get enough sleep? Do you think your stress caused the lack of sleep? That might be one of the reasons. However, there is another reason that you'd rarely think of: the mattress you sleep on.
Why don't you get enough of sleep?
There are several reasons why you have a restless sleep and wake up tired the next morning.
- Being too full or eating too much carbohydrates and sugar before going to bed.
- Drinking too much water before bedtime, causing you to wake up in the middle of the night to "visit the toilet" many times.
- Working out too hard before bedtime.
- Drinking caffeine (coffee, tea, stimulants,...) before bed.
- Inappropriate room temperature (too warm or too cold).
- Using TV or cellphone.
- If you are not doing any of the above and still cannot sleep well, the next reason could be your bed, your mattress and your pillows.
Old mattresses & their effect on sleep
1. Mattresses don't last forever.
A mattress has a lifespan of approximately 8 or 10 years with the right care and under normal use. Some mattress types need to be rotated after being used for a period of time. Either way, you should still replace a new mattress after the above time.
2. Mattresses become deformed
Good mattresses are designed to stay in shape no matter how long you use them or how much you weigh. If your mattress is saggy in the middle or in the areas you normally lie down, take it as a sign to replace it with a new mattress. If not, your spine will eventually suffer. For products under the warranty period, please contact the seller for a warranty. For products out of warranty, please dispose of them and purchase a new mattress.
3. Old mattresses are unhygienic
Every night, your body secretes about a quarter of a liter of water through sweat. As you know, the mattress "sucks" all that sweat. Wetness causes mold. Some bedsheet types are waterproof, but not everyone is able to afford this.
4. Dust mites affect respiration.
Dead cells from the body are released every night and accumulate on the mattress, providing a favorable habitat for dust mites. They can cause health problems like allergies, asthma, or eczema.
How to choose a new mattress?
There are plenty of mattress types with different prices on the martket. In order to choose the right mattress that will be with you for years, you should spend some time to experience it. Don't rush to choose just because of the brand, the price or the salesperson's recommendations.
A good mattress is comfortable not only when you lay down on it for trial, but also when you sleep through the night and it supports your spine. There are some brands that have a 30-day free trial program, take advantage of this and try it before you commit to the purchase.
There are 2 notes when choosing the right mattress for you:
1. Heat absorption:
One of the problems with memory foam is heat absorption. Most mattresses use this material for comfort. Their job is to absorb body temperature during sleep and disperse it. If your mattress fails to do its job, you will feel warm throughout the night.
Choose a mattress made of a material that is designed to absorb heat. Nowadays, with advanced technologies, many brands have introduced mattress products that both absorb heat, keep the body cool while sleeping, and support the spine.
An appropriate mattress will give you a good night's sleep so you don't wake up tired. A mattress not only gives you comfort but also supports your spine. Depending on the type of the mattress and the brand, a mattress can have different firmness levels: medium-soft, medium-firm, firm.
You should be consulted carefully before choosing a mattress with the appropriate firmness level. And don't forget to try it for free to choose the right one.
