4 Signs You Need To Buy A New Mattress

Nobody deserves to wake up stiff and sore


It's safe to say that we all love our beds. If we had the luxury of time, we'd probably spend most of our days curling up and sleeping in. 

This is probably why it's easy for us to delay replacing big-ticket items such as our mattresses, however, our health should always come first. If your quality of sleep has declined, you're already getting morning allergies or you're mostly in pain—it's probably time to find a new place to lay your head. 

Check out these four signs that may be telling you that you need a new mattress.

You wake up with aches. 
If getting up in the morning feeling unrested is a part of your routine, your mattress may not be giving you adequate lumbar support anymore. It may still feel comfortable when you're laying down for a catnap but a full eight hours will have you complaining about pins and needles on your back. 

Your bed has lumps. 
When changing your sheets, do you see uneven shifts on the surface of your mattress? These lumps happen when the padding inside the mattress moves around because of age. It can also mean that the fill is no longer stitched properly which can eventually lead to bigger tears.

Your box spring keeps creaking. 
If you hear squeaking noises when you toss and turn around your bed, your box spring may be starting to develop sagging issues of its own. If it accidentally gives way, your entire mattress will no longer be able to give support. 

You find it more comfortable to rest somewhere else. 
Does sleeping on your couch make you feel better than ever? If your answer is yes, you may want to take a second look at your bed. If it's no longer the coziest spot at home, it's time to give it an upgrade.
