As a working mother of two young kids I have learnt that there are few things in life as precious as sleep. However, many of those in my position will agree that a there are several factors that can affect a good night’s sleep, to name a few – the neighbor’s dogs that serve as live alarm systems for every passing vehicle, thin apartment walls coupled with neighbors who know nothing about the volume button on their TV remotes, or tossing and turning on a lumpy, creaky mattress. Of all the possible reasons to lose sleep, a bad mattress is not one of them.
The right mattress can really help you have a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling rested and ready to face the day. On the other hand, a bad mattress can not only cause above-mentioned tossing and turning, but can also cause back pain and possibly worsen a pre-existing back condition. So, if your mattress sags in the middle and generally feels uncomfortable it’s time to invest in a new one.
