The average human spends around 229,961 hours of their lifetime sleeping. This is nearly one third of their whole life which means having the right bed and mattress is very important.
If you are finding that you sometimes wake up with aches and pains, your mattress seems to sag or you have had your mattress for a long time, it might be time for you to think about flipping your mattress:
There are many reasons you might need to flip your mattress. The most common one is noticing a sagging in the mattress caused by you sleeping in the exact same position each night.
No matter what your body weight is, sleeping in the same position every night for a prolonged period of time can affect not only your posture but the comfortability of the mattress.
Another reason to flip your mattress is if the springs have lost their resilience. This means the springs can be felt quite easily when lay on the mattress and there is again a sag that can be seen.
With more high tech, modern mattresses like the Sealy Mattress, flipping is not always essential. The Sealy mattress is designed to provide maximum comfort and be long lasting which means they are less likely to sag or lose resilience in the springs.
However, for something older than a mattress, you should think about flipping your mattress once every 3-6 months to make sure that it lasts as long as possible.
To flip the mattress simply flip it so that it is upside down and the place you lay your head is now where your feet will be.
Once you have flipped your mattress a number of times, and you are still feeling a sag in it, it is time for you to get yourself a new mattress.
If you continue to sleep on a sagging mattress it can cause long lasting back, neck and joint injuries.
