Why you should buy a new mattress

In the UK, we have a bad-mattress epidemic, with people sleeping on decades-old mattresses. That's despite the National Sleep Foundation recommending we get a new one every 8 years at most. 

About 80 per cent of adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lifetimes globally and sleeping in the wrong position with the spine not aligned is one of the major cause of this.

However, some mattresses can cost you way over a £1,000, an amount a lot of people find hard to justify. That's why a sale like this Dreams one is a great time to consider this most vital but infrequent of purchases.
