Sleep is such a vital part of how we stay healthy.  There are so many distractions and stressors in life that can limit our sleep ability and quality.  One thing to keep in mind is how your bed impacts your sleep.  It is recommended that you change your mattresses every 7 – 10 years.  Another way to see if your mattress is ready to be replaced is to see if it can stand up against a wall.  If your bed sags or bends, then it might be time for a new mattress.

Buying a brand new bed is a great opportunity to secure a healthy night’s sleep. With the proper bed and mattress, you can receive quality sleep and you can remove any body aches that could occur from poor quality mattresses. Understand what best suits your sleep style, as well as, your body. After 40 years old, your body is less resilient to certain firm mattress styles.  Additionally, if your body has restrictions due to injury and surgeries,  understand which mattresses or beds are best for your specific conditions might start by asking your physician for recommended suggestions.  In addition to reviewing the best mattresses,  make sure your room temperature is at the perfect temperature.  A room that is too hot can cause problems or a restless sleep.  Rooms that are too cold can cause your body to work harder to keep it warm, possibly creating a less restful sleep also.

When looking for a mattress remember these things:  What is your sleep pattern like? Does your sleep patterns effect your partner’s sleep pattern? Do you have injuries or medical conditions that need to be addressed? Does the bedding group have samples beds that you can test?

One last thing to keep in mind. Make a purchase of some great sheets for your bed.  Great sheets that are cleaned regularly can add to a healthy night’s sleep.
