You wouldn’t hike a mountain without the right knowledge and gear.
And yet, despite spending a third of our lives sleeping, many of us haven’t adequately prepared in the bedroom — when it comes to mattresses, that is.
Your old mattress may be causing you stress! A recent study found that when 59 men and women slept on a new bed for one month, they experienced a decrease in worrying, headaches, and more as a result of more quality sleep and less pain on the body.
As your mattress ages, so do the supports that hold the mattress in position. "Sinking" is the cause of your body weight wearing out the surface of the mattress and the bed frame beneath it. This may factor into an awkward sleeping position that will cause snoring and keep you awake at night.

There is no actual answer to which one is better. So, make sure you try out a few mattresses before making your purchase because your the quality of your sleep depends on your comfort level.
