6 Benefits to Expect from Your New Bed
The recommendation to replace your mattress every seven to 10 years is an important one. As your mattress gets worn down with age, it can pose a number of consequences to your physical and mental well-being. Upon the purchase and delivery of your new mattress from the Go2sleep Gallery™, you can anticipate these six benefits to your quality of sleep and overall health.
Decreased Aches and Pains
One of the most common consequences of sleeping on the wrong mattress is developing aches and pains in certain areas of the body, which typically include the back, shoulders and neck. By purchasing a mattress that’s not too firm or soft, you can achieve the ideal level of support your body needs to keep the spine properly aligned and natural curves of the body supported.
After a long day at work or chasing the kids around, you look forward to putting your stress to bed – literally. However, that can be tough to do on an old and uncomfortable mattress. Plus, when you spend your nights tossing and turning, the stress of your sleepless nights can carry well into your days. A new mattress that matches your individual specifications will not only help you relax at the end of the day, but it will also alleviate the stress associated with having to buy a new mattress.
Enhanced Mental Health
Aside from reducing your levels of stress, your overall mental health will improve from getting better sleep on a new mattress. That’s because poor sleep is proven to make certain mental health conditions more severe, including depression, anxiety and mood swings. In addition, sleeping soundly on your new mattress can even improve your memory and elevate your mood the next day.
Improved Allergy Symptoms
For those who suffer from allergies, a new mattress can give you a fresh start in the bedroom, as an old mattress can make symptoms worse. That’s because they have a tendency to store dust and allergens, as well as serve as a breeding ground for dust mites. In fact, dust mites thrive on the dead skin cells that build up within mattresses, and regardless of which allergies you may have, they can cause the following symptoms:
- Watery eyes
- Sinus pressure
- Excessive sneezing
- Runny nose
Boosted Immune System
Few factors have a more severe effect on your immune system than poor sleep quality, which is more than likely attributed to sleeping on an old mattress. During sleep, the body creates new antibodies and cells to fight illnesses and infections, but if you’re having trouble sleeping, your immune system won’t be able to perform these necessary functions. Therefore, a new mattress will make you less susceptible to falling victim to certain illnesses.
If you’re watching your figure, there’s good news – a new mattress can actually help you lose weight. Sleep deprivation causes the decreased production of leptin, the hormone that tells your brain when you’ve eaten enough. It also causes higher levels of ghrelin, a biochemical that stimulates your appetite and keeps you feeling hungry. In fact, one of the risk factors of obesity is a lack of sleep, so a new mattress, along with physical activity and a healthy diet, can help keep you in shape and within an ideal body weight range.
