Should I Be Replacing My Mattress?

Hello World!  Replacing our mattresses is something that is definitely on my to do list in the next two years.  Below is some wonderful information for those of us who might be in the market.  

When a shirt gets a stain that can't be removed, we toss it out. When a car is totaled in an accident, we replace it. When a TV gets fried during a storm, we get a new one. For many of the replaceable goods in our lives, it's easy to tell when we've reached a point where it's time to move on. Usually, this is made obvious by an immediate change that we are often present for – e.g.: spilling the wine, getting rear-ended, seeing smoke coming out of the TV vents.

It's harder to tell something needs to be replaced when its deterioration happens so slowly that we get used to each stage in its decline, until we realize we've been living with something we should have replaced long ago. A mattress is the quintessential example of this, and as something that affects your energy and well-being, it's important to make sure you don't let your mattress get to the point where suddenly it's negatively impacting your quality of life, because that means it has been going on for a while.



A general rule of thumb is to start taking an objective look at the quality of your mattress after seven years. Some may last longer, and others less than that, but in general, this is often the beginning of the end of a mattress.


Take stock of how even the feel is of your mattress from time to time. Apply firm pressure to the edges and corners where your body weight rarely rests, and compare it to where you sleep. As a mattress wears, the middle will soften and offer diminished support. And of course, if you're waking up sore, achy, or stiff - and didn’t used to - take a look at your bed to see if it's the source of your issues.
