Medical science is shedding more and more light on the truth of how vital nighttime sleep is to our overall health. With links to diabetes, depression, epilepsy, and even cancer, insomnia is no laughing matter. Although, for some people, the idea of investing in a quality mattress comes across as extravagant luxury, the truth is that achieving a restful night’s sleep can pay back immeasurable health dividends that more than recoup the cost of the mattress.
It’s rather ironic; there’s almost no place we spend as much time as on our mattresses, yet we feel guilty even entertaining the thought of springing for a quality mattress. Quoting a UK survey, Good Housekeeping’s Lauren Smith reports, “An estimated tens of thousands of people in the country sleep on a mattress that’s more than 40 years old. That means they bought their bed back in 1975 — yep, the era of disco dancing and bell bottom-wearing.”
Although there’s a lot to be said for the thrifty mindset that says, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without,” neglecting the condition of your mattress for decades on end isn’t as financially savvy as you might think. Grumpy mornings spent enduring the ones you love simply because a poor night’s sleep makes them unbearable, back problems that make simple tasks unthinkable, and insomnia issues that introduce serious health risks can all be avoided by investing in a mattress that will perform well for many years to come.Mattress News
