Is eight hours’ sleep a night really invaluable? And if so, how much money would you be willing to spend on a full night’s sleep?
We spoke to the team at WantMattress to try and get a better picture of what your sleep is worth. It has shown that out of 11,000 people surveyed, only 1% could honestly say they wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day, which is shocking! With so many of us taking on more responsibility and having to deal with ever-growing ‘to-do’ lists, it should come as no surprise that many of us aren’t taking our sleep more seriously.
With that being said, more and more of us are turning to technology, treatments and even hotels offering luxurious sleep retreats to help us sleep better, which is great to know that we are considering our sleep to be just as important as anything else and it also means we won’t be walking around like zombies – but how much will it all set you back?
Treatments ranging from a ‘seven-day Sleep Regime’, a course of acupuncture and even a magnesium bath before bed can cost you anywhere between £10 and £1,300 – that’s a hefty price to pay for a trip to the land of nod, but if you’ve not slept properly in months, it might just be a welcome relief.
Having said that, could your mattress be the reason you’re paying the price for lack of sleep? Changing your mattress can sometimes be an afterthought and almost an ‘unnecessary’ expenditure, particularly when we live such busy lifestyles – who has time to wait in for a delivery, right?
Well, it’s been proven that we should change our mattresses regularly if we want to get a healthy night’s sleep as well as avoiding other health complications such as back pain. With our Free and Fast Delivery, it would be silly not to at least check whether your current mattress is due an upgrade – if nothing else, you might finally be able to catch up on all the lost sleep and who knows, it might save you a few pennies in the long run.
If you’re not sure how to check your mattress to see whether you’re overdue a change, have a look at our tips below:
- If you wake up in pain or you spend your day uncomfortable as a result of back or muscle pain then it would be a good idea to consider a new mattress, assess how long you’ve had your current mattress and work from there.
- Fidgeting during the night and waking up altogether might be a sign that you need to look at what you’re sleeping on; if you find yourself usually in a deep sleep and there are sudden changes in your pattern, your mattress might be the problem.
- Look at the physical aspect of your mattress, does it look old? Is it sagging in places or are there dents in it where there shouldn’t be? If so, you’re probably due an upgrade.
- Ask yourself, “Would I rather sleep somewhere else?” Is the sofa looking more and more comfortable each night? If the answer is yes, it’s time to invest in a new mattress.
