If you are waking up feeling anything less than well rested, then it is time for a new mattress.

Awakening to lower back pain and stiffness is no way to treat your body; your mattress should make you feel weightless, like you’re floating on air.

In your hunt for a new mattress, there are a few tips experts suggest. Go to the store and test the mattress. Really test it. Lie in your normal sleeping position and spend at least 10 minutes on the bed, you can even bring your own pillow! The better you replicate your sleeping habits in the store, the more likely you are to bring home the perfect mattress.
