We spend approximately 1/3 of our lives sleeping. Do you have the sleeping haven you need to get a restful nights’ sleep? Daily we are bombarded with ads about the benefits of a new mattress when it comes to getting a good nights’ sleep, however there are more parts to creating that comfortable sleeping haven then a new mattress.
When was the last time you replaced the basic bed linens covering your mattress? That’s right, how long have you been sleeping in those sheets, on that mattress pad? How about those pillows? Do they even look like pillows? And I haven’t even started on the rest of the bedding you may have on top of your bed.
Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up. Granted if your mattress looks to be concave in the middle; that is you roll towards the middle every time you lay down on it, then it’s time to get a new mattress. However, if your mattress is in fairly good condition, then maybe this is not the time for that kind of investment, but rather time to purchase some new basic bed linens to put on top.
