We spend around one third of our lives in our beds - sleeping. This then doesn't include the array of other activities we do in bed - reading; watching TV; laying awake; scrolling through social media, to name a few.

Our beds are a much bigger and indispensable part of our daily lives, but how often to we really take note of our beds (besides of course when we're falling into them)? Not often enough, actually. There are a number of important questions we should be asking ourselves when it comes to our beds - more particularly out mattresses.

What does it matter, you may be wondering. Well, firstly consider that we all need restful and sufficient sleep to function, i.e. perform our daily tasks, fulfill responsibilities like work, chores, parenting etc. Secondly - inadequate sleep decreases productivity; increases irritability and can eventually cause several health problems (such as diabetes; weight management problems; high blood pressure and so on). Thirdly - our beds (old or unsuitable mattresses) could be the leading cause that we don't get enough 'good' sleep.

Here are a few things you need to realize about ageing mattresses that have probably seen their last good days:

They are store houses and breeding grounds for allergens

Older mattresses tend to be discolored, dusting and often a bit smelly (often we've just gotten use to the particular scent). These changes are caused by some slightly disturbing things. The discoloration and dustiness is typically due to flakes of dead skin, microscopic dirt from our bodies, sweat, as well as mites. Mites lay millions of eggs, live and excrete between the fibers of our beds, throughout the time we own them. These and other compounds are broken down, which releases foul fumes from inside our mattresses.

These factors all contribute to poor sleep quality due to inhalation of these microscopic allergens which set off allergic reactions - including coughing or wheezing; sneezing or stuffy sinuses etc.

Your body's mattress requirements change, but mattresses don't

Mattresses eventually lose their ability to properly support y body, the longer you sleep on it. Additionally - age, body weight changes and pregnancy have an effect on this - as your body may require a unique mattress that will be gentle enough on your body, whilst still being firm. Inadequate mattresses, that don't support our bodies sufficiently can lead to sleep discomfort, loss of sleep and waking up with aches and pains every morning. It is therefore important to ensure that your mattress is the right mattress for your body's needs - in terms of the aforementioned, as well as your body type and preferred sleeping position.

Beds and sleep aren't just about mattresses

An often overlooked details about getting a great night's sleep is what's on our beds. Pillows. We all have a favorite pillow and it's difficult to imagine that it could be contributing to restless nights and groggy mornings. The truth is - if your pillow isn't supporting your head and neck by accommodating a straighter posture - it's not doing you much good when trying to sleep. Buying quality pillows that suit your sleeping position - be it on your back, side or stomach - is an investment in your sleep and essentially in everything that is affected by it. There is a variety of pillows that are specially designed to lend support and comfort during the night - to help ensure your sleep isn't laid to waste.
