A good night’s sleep is critical to your quality of life, with the potential to affect everything from work performance and personal relationships to chronic health problems and mental wellness. Unfortunately, far too many people are suffering the effects of low-quality sleep, trying to survive their daily routine despite feeling foggy, achy, and overtired. If this sounds familiar, changing your sleep health for the better can be achieved with just a few simple steps, the first of which is finding a high-quality mattress. Here’s everything you need to know about finding your perfect mattress match, including how often you should replace your mattress and what role spinal alignment plays in your sleep health:

Tips for Choosing a Mattress

Here are a few handy tips for choosing a mattress that’s right for you:

  • Visit a mattress showroom in person: You can test out the various mattresses. Avoid buying a mattress online, because you won’t be able to test it personally for comfort and support needs.
  • Consider both comfort and support:  Choose a material that will support your personal preferences.
  • Ask questions while browsing: Take advantage of all the information and expertise available at a quality mattress showroom like MATTRESS360.
  • Take the investment seriously: Your sleep health is a significant part of your quality of life.

How Long Does a Mattress Last?

The lifespan of a mattress is largely dependent on the quality of the mattress and its primary materials. A cheaply-made mattress will reach the end of its life far sooner than a premium mattress, many of which can last up to 10 years on average. If you’ve had your current mattress for a decade or longer – or its sagging and feeling uneven – it’s time to replace it.

Spinal Alignment: An Important Factor

When it comes to spinal alignment, sleeping in the right position on a supportive mattress is critical. A sagging or unsupportive mattress can fail to support a neutral (straight) spinal position, which is why regular replacement and choosing a good mattress is so important. Testing mattresses and trying a variety of positions is also essential to proper spinal alignment.
