5 Signs It’s Time For A New Mattress

Is it time for a mattress upgrade?

Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in your home. It’s where you rest and recharge after a long day. A mattress that’s both comfortable and supportive improves your sleep and contributes to better overall health.


If you’re not getting the sleep you need, it’s time to consider a new mattress. Not sure you’re ready to go mattress shopping? If you answer yes to any of these questions, it’s time:

  • Aches & pains – Do you wake up with a sore back or achy joints?
  • Tired all the time – Are you waking up still tired after a full night’s sleep?
  • Wear & tear – Does your mattress look beat up? Does it sag? Is it lumpy?
  • Foreign sleep – Do you find yourself getting a better night’s sleep in a bed that is not your own (like a hotel for example)?
  • It’s old – When’s the last time you bought a new mattress? Based on amount of use and quality of the mattress, it’s recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years.

Also, don’t forget, your body changes over time. As you age, your need for comfort and support will increase. That’s why it’s a good idea to compare the mattress and foundation you are sleeping on now to newer models every few years. Read more at BetterSleep.org
