Dairy, meat, juice, vitamins and…mattresses?? What do these have in common? They all have expiry dates. While the thought of drinking milk a year past its expiry date can (literally) turn your stomach, for some reason many of us are sleeping on mattresses significantly past their “best before.” Mattress expiry dates can range anywhere from 5 to 10 years past the original purchase date, but the average is about 8 years.
*Gasp* I don’t remember what my mattress’ expiration date was!
Don’t fret, your body knows even if your memory doesn’t.
Ask yourself the following questions when considering if it’s time to spring (see what I did there?) for a new mattress.
DoI wake up still feeling tired?
DoI sleep significantly better in other beds (i.e. hotels, visiting friends, etc.)?
DoI wake up with allergies?
DoI wake up with body aches and pains?
DoI wake up many times during the night trying to find a comfortable position?
If you answered yes to just a couple of these, it might be time to consider a new mattress – might I suggest checking out our incredible line of Italian-made Magniflex Mattresses?
Strangely enough, shopping for a new mattress isn’t something that crosses one’s mind as often as, say the 60 inch TV with crazy high resolution, but we actually spend a third of our lives sleeping (I hope we’re not spending quite as much watching TV).
A mattress, and a fresh one at that, will improve your health, happiness and overall well-being like nothing else. Pretty impressive for an incognito item that no one really sees.
