It never fails; at some point in your life, you are likely to suffer from insomnia. It’s nothing unusual, but when the problem becomes chronic, life can become very challenging. Statistics show that if you go without sleep for as little as 24 hours, your reactions and cognitive ability are approximately the same as someone whose BAC (blood alcohol content) is 0.05 or higher, which is considered legally drunk in many parts of the world. Before you become completely sleep-deprived or go running off to the doctor, perhaps buying a mattress from the Bed’r Mattress store in Valdosta may help.

Consider These Signs Your Mattress Could Be the Culprit  

1. Allergies to Your Mattress

Over time your mattress will see a buildup of dead skin cells, dust, pollen, animal dander (if you have pets), and dust mites that feed on your dead skin cells. All of these can cause you to become “allergic” to your mattress, resulting in attacks of sneezing and, of course, poor sleep or no sleep at all.  Buying a mattress from our mattress store in Valdosta can help alleviate the problem and let everyone get better sleep.

2. I Like Mine Medium-Firm

Far too many people are under the impression they should order their next new mattress like they order a steak. “I know what I need; I’ve been sleeping on a medium-firm mattress all my life!” The only problem with this is that that same person has been complaining of insomnia for all their life. Be sure you “test drive” multiple mattresses at different firmness levels for at least 20 minutes before you make your decision. The wrong firmness can lead to endless nights of lousy sleep.

3. Tossing and Turning

If you keep tossing and turning all night long, it’s probably because your body is trying to find a position where you are comfortable enough to fall asleep and stay there. The number one cause of this problem is a mattress that is either worn out or is not the right one for you. At the Bed’r Mattress store in Valdosta, we encourage you to test drive our mattresses until you find the one that feels right to you. You may find that a memory foam mattress such as those made by Tempur-Pedic can help slow your restlessness down.

4. Sweating to the Oldies

If all you do is lay on your bed sweating all night long, you are what is known as a “hot” sleeper. Hot sleepers come in a range of styles: those who can’t sleep without at least one foot sticking out, those who sleep with no covers, and those who try to turn the bedroom into an icebox at night. No matter which one of these categories fits you the best, they all result in the same thing – not getting enough sleep. Modern memory foam and gel mattresses are designed for improved airflow and better cooling.
