5 Signs it’s Time for a New Mattress

Is it time for a mattress upgrade?

Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in your home. It’s where you rest and recharge after a long day. A mattress that’s both comfortable and supportive improves your sleep and contributes to better overall health.

If you’re not getting the sleep you need, it’s time to consider a new mattress. Not sure you’re ready to go mattress shopping? If you answer yes to any of these questions, it’s time:08_-_03B99703

  • Aches & pains  Do you wake up with a sore back or achy joints?
  • Tired all the time  Are you waking up still tired after a full night’s sleep?
  • Wear & tear  Does your mattress look beat up? Does it sag? Is it lumpy?
  • Foreign sleep – Do you find yourself getting a better night’s sleep in a bed that is not your own (like a hotel for example)?
  • It’s old – When’s the last time you bought a new mattress? Based on amount of use and quality of the mattress, it’s recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years.

Every time your life changes, so should your mattress. When you leave for college, it’s time to upgrade from your childhood bed. When you get married, your bed will need to be big enough for two. If you have kids, it may need to be even bigger.

Also, don’t forget, your body changes over time. As you age, your need for comfort and support will increase. That’s why it’s a good idea to compare the mattress and foundation you are sleeping on now to newer models every few years.

A Good Mattress Can Save Your Child’s Life.

Mattress City wants you to know that young drivers who don’t get enough sleep are at a significant risk of having a car accident. This is according to a study published in the May 21st edition of the journal pediatrics. Sleeping less on weekends can put young drivers at greater risk of having a car crash at night, as well as having an increased risk of run-off-road crashes. Sleepiness is associated with lapses in attention, slowed reaction times, impairments in judgment, difficulty regulating emotions (including aggression) and risky behavior. These effects are magnified by alcohol consumption. The study examined the association between sleep and motor vehicle crashes in more than 20,000 newly licensed drivers ages 17 to 24 and found that 86% of young-driver deaths happen between 8pm and 6am.


Eating and Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Q:  How soon should I stop eating in order to get a good night’s sleep of at least 7 hours?

A:  This is a great question. It all depends upon the size of the meal, and when you eat it. The dinner meal should be one of the smaller meals of the day, as your body really needs time to digest, and the smaller amount it digests the better. So if you can keep dinner to under 750 calories, that will help. Next, different types of food are digested at different rates. Keeping your dinner to lighter fare will also help with this process. Finally, consider giving yourself about 3-4 hours before lights out as the latest time for dinner. This will allow your stomach to digest its contents easily and not interfere with your ability to fall asleep.

One of their daughters, Emily is general manager and sees to it that each customer has the ultimate experience when selecting a new mattress set. The Patey’s saw how impersonal it was for the average customer today who is shopping for a mattress and the lack of knowledge that many salespeople have especially when it comes to making such an important decision with the typical mattress and furniture stores serving Western Washington. That’s how Mattress City came to be.“We are so excited for the grand opening of our new Lynnwood store.” said Stewart Patey, Owner “Currently located in Everett, Marysville and Woodinville, opening the Lynnwood store enables us to serve even more of our neighbors. Our vision in serving our customers is unique and being family owned and operated we can offer very affordable solutions for any customer need.”

Mattress City is the only mattress store that gives customers cash back on old mattress sets, up to $300, regardless of its condition when purchasing a new set at the everyday low price! Mattress City then donates the old mattress sets to various charities throughout the community. Mattress City also offers same day delivery to local customers. Combine all of that with carrying the TOP name brands with the best warranties and superior customer service, Mattress City has fulfilled the Patey’s vision of serving the community while running an exceptional business in a family friendly environment.
