March is National Bed Month.
Do you get a good nights sleep? Does your bed feel comfortable? Is your bed over 10 years old?
Your mattress can be hugely important to your quality of sleep and overall health. If you have a back or neck problem your mattress can influence it. Many people fail to seek professional advice when buying a new mattress with less than 40% spending more than 30 minutes buying their new mattress. When you consider the potential hours of sleep lost due to the wrong mattress this seems like no time at all!
The majority of us (16%) just look online when buying a new mattress rather than consulting a professional. In fact 1% check with their neighbour, 4% ask their friends and 9% seek advice from a qualified chiropractor.
Considering that we are all different shapes and sizes, it can be difficult to choose the right mattress so that we get suitable support and comfort levels. If your mattress is over 10 years old it may be worn out and sagging not giving you the support you need.
