Follow these tips to improve your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.

A mattress should be replaced every eight years.

If you keep it longer than that, the materials may begin to disintegrate, making the mattress less comfortable to sleep on. Consider upgrading sooner if you wake up in pain every day, sleep poorly, or are generally unhappy.

Replace the box spring around the same time.

The compression of the springs (due to having a mattress and human bodies on top of it all the time) will begin to affect the structure of the spring box over time.

Avoid sagging.

While people are questioning whether a firm mattress is necessary for someone suffering from back discomfort, most experts agree that a saggy mattress is not the way to go. Perform the same “spine alignment observation” as described above to evaluate if a mattress has too much sag.

Make comfort your ultimate goal.

Finding the perfect mattress FOR YOU is the goal of mattress shopping. Some people prefer a firm mattress, while others, like Goldilocks, prefer something in between.

Look for a mattress that is a good fit for your body.

Chiropractors recommend buying a mattress that is built to adhere to the natural curve of the spine and transmit pressure equally across the body. This can be difficult because the surface curvature of the mattress does not always correspond to how your spine will curve while sleeping on it.

Allow peace a chance.

Even if you fell in love with your new mattress in the store, you might not be able to sleep better on it the first night you get it home. It can take a few days to get used to a new sleeping surface.
