We have all been there: climbing out of bed in the morning with a stiff neck, a sore back, and the distinct feeling that the previous night did nothing in the way of rest.
Many of us have been experiencing poor sleep for so long that it simply feels like second nature, being tired is a way of life for far too many people.
There are plenty of factors that affect sleep quality. Everything from leaving a light on to facing added stress at work can prevent sleep from having actual restorative effects, even if you fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow.
While there is no disputing that many things contribute to sleep quality, perhaps the biggest factor is sleep environment. This means sleeping somewhere that is a comfortable temperature with quality bedding and, of course, a good mattress.
If you often find yourself waking up and feeling like you have not slept at all, it may be time to invest in a new mattress. So once you have decided to update your mattress, what should you do with the old one?
