Do you often wake up tired after an average sleep? Or is your body sore and stiff like a board most mornings?

When your mattress stops providing the needed support, youll toss and turn more often, leading to unsweet dreams.
2. Its crying to be replaced

3. It holds on even when youre gone
Next time you get out of bed, take a look to see if there is a lasting impression on the mattress. Lasting impressions are the result of deep sagging, meaning the support you need is no longer there.

Also, your body has changed within that time. If youve gained or lost weight, started having health issues or have a new spouse, time for a new beautiful mattress.
6. Partner not sleeping
If youre sleeping fine but your partner is tossing and turning all night new occurrence theres a good chance your mattress isnt providing the adequate support to your partner. Plus, an uncomfortable partner can disrupt your nightly routine too. And make for grumpy mornings.
