Why Your Bad Mood Could Be Down to Your Mattress
There’s nothing better for your well being than getting enough quality sleep every single night. Granted, making sure that you have a well-balanced, nutritiously rich diet and exercise regularly is essential for your health. But your sleep should never be overlooked.
In fact, missing out on quality sleep not only affects you physically, it can seriously affect your mental health too. It’s important to prioritise your sleep, but this isn’t always easy, especially when you don’t have a precisely tailored, high quality and supportive mattress.
With this in mind, we wanted to go through the reasons why your current mattress could be negatively affecting your mood, and why it might be time to consider investing in a new one…
Time has worn it down
Unfortunately, a mattress can eventually succumb to wear and tear over time. Most high quality mattresses can last for 7 years or more with the right care and maintenance, however a cheaper mattress likely won’t last nearly as long. As time passes it will start to sag, which will spell disaster for your sleep.
The lack of support will leave you with aches and pains in your back and neck. Not only will your sleep pattern be disrupted, you’ll constantly wake up feeling sore, stiff and fatigued. If your mattress is around 7 years old then it’s time to start looking for something more suitable.
It’s cheap on more than just price
It’s always nice to find yourself a cheap and cheerful deal, but if you choose a cheaply made mattress, you’ll just end up with a great deal of discomfort. Remember, you use your mattress more than any other household item, so it’s essential that you get the quality product you deserve for your money.
This doesn’t mean you have to break the bank, because you should only spend as much as you can comfortably afford. However, investing as much as you can will likely save you from endless sleepless nights on a mattress that’s poorly made, and that just isn’t right for you.
You never got to trial it properly
The problem with many mattress retailers is that they don’t give you a chance to try out your new mattress in your own home. Lying on it for an hour or so in a showroom, won’t ever give you a good idea of how it’s going to measure up when you actually sleep on it.
You need time to truly test out a mattress when you’re unsure. This will usually take around 30 nights. After this your body should get used to the feel of it, and you’ll be able to see if it’s really right for you. At John Ryan, we offer our straightforward 60 Day Love it or Return It Guarantee for this very reason. As we’re dedicated to making sure you are completely satisfied and happy with your new mattress.
It’s leaving you hot and bothered
The materials used in the construction of your mattress all play a key role on how your body temperature is kept regulated overnight. If you happen to be a hot sleeper, and constantly get hot and bothered when you sleep, then it’s time for a change.
Perhaps you have a memory foam mattress, or one that’s made up of synthetic man made fibres, either way these are warmest mattress materials available. They will hold onto your body heat for far longer, trapping it in during the night. Instead, opting for Natural Fibre mattresses that contain high wicking and breathable materials, designed to help combat heat, will allow you to sleep soundly without the night sweats.
