We’ve heard it a million times, “But my mattress is still so comfortable! I don’t need a new one.” It may be the case that your mattress still feels like heaven, but under all those foamy layers could be a bed that’s been betraying you for years!
Throughout most of human history, we went to bed shortly after the sun went down and woke up as it came up. There were of course some forms of light, such as candles, but it was not very bright so the typical person went to be early. Then along came light and threw a spanner in the works of our sleeping habits.
Do you remember when you purchased your current mattress? What is the time marker, before children / when you moved house / a change in relationship? Or, are you like many of us, your first mattress was a hand me down, with a dubious history and an undisclosed age? It is the one thing essential to life where age does matter.
