Mattresses at discount prices – Coral Gables
Depending on frequency of type of use, the average mattress retains its support and comfort for maybe 5-10 years. The main factor in determining if you need to replace your old mattress is how you feel during sleeping and upon waking. Do you toss and turn throughout the night? Are you tired and achy when you awake, even though you’ve been in the bed for 7-8 hours or more? If so, it may be time to consider replacing that old mattress soon.
Approximately 70 million Americans are affected by sleep problems. About half of all adults experience occasional trouble sleeping and the extent of reported sleep problems is increasing annually.
Recent research has found that our children also are in need of sleep. The lack of sufficient sleep affects their functioning and cognitive ability and relates to higher levels of depression, anxiety and fatigue, as it does with adults.
Studies have proven that sleeping on a new mattress can produce immediate benefits. Significant improvements in sleep quality, comfort and efficiency, as well as significant reductions in back pain and stiffness, result from even the first night’s sleep on a new mattress.
With these statistics, it’s curious that people tend to by cars or major appliances more often than they replace their old, worn-out mattress. Even avid joggers replace their running shows after so many miles to avoid the risk of pain or injury.
Mattresses are not made to last forever. They will break down gradually over years of use. You likely won’t notice suddenly one night that the bed feels less supportive or comfortable than the night before. The process is more subtle. Your aches and pains will increase according to the age of your mattress. You may attribute that to aging, but you may be surprised how much better you’ll feel on a new mattress.
Of course, the type of new mattress affects your level of comfort, but regardless of the brand and type, studies have shown that reduction in pain and improvement in sleep were experienced by all, no matter their age, weight, height or body mass index. And as weeks and months go by, the benefits continue to increase.
For instance, a 2000 survey by the National Sleep Foundation found that 62% of American adults reported having at least one night with poor sleep per week. In 2005 the proportion rose to 75%. In the same survey, 26% reported getting a good night’s sleep only a few times per month or less.
Sleep deprivation accumulation
Standard recommendations are eight hours sleep per night for most adults, although some can function on less, but many require more. But most adults are getting less than seven hours sleep a night during the average work week.
Some of the reasons for getting less sleep is our fast-paced lifestyle, stress and over-committing. However, the quality of sleep is a factor as well. If you’re in bed eight hours, but it’s a restless sleep, your body is not regenerating like it should.
Because sleep is a basic physiological and restorative need, disturbed sleep affects daytime activity, social interactions, mood, quality of life and numerous other aspects of our life. Impairments in cognitive and motor performance due to lack of sleep have been compared to alcohol intoxication.
The cost of sleep deprivation related to lost productivity and accidental injury on the job is enormous. A recent study by the Institute of Medicine found that sleep–related fatigue contributes to an estimated direct and indirect cost of $150 billion annually in absenteeism, workplace accidents and lost productivity.
