We all know that a good night’s sleep is critical to our wellbeing. And a recent survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that over 90% of those interviewed knew that the quality of your sleep depends on your mattress. In day-to-day life, however, many don’t seem to realize that by sleeping nightly on a mattress that has outlived its usefulness, they’re endangering their health.

Here are a few of the ways your mattress could be adversely affecting your health.

Stress level

Stress is caused by many things, and for some of us it’s a bad mattress. The back pain you suffer from sleeping on an old mattress and the irritability linked to poor sleep increase the level of cortisol, the “stress hormone,? in your body.


Old mattresses are filled with dust mites and bed bugs that eat the dead skin we shed, and the presence of these creatures can trigger both skin and respiratory problems. Washing your sheets and pillow cases regularly helps, but the best remedy is a new mattress.

Back Pain

A recent study conducted at Oklahoma State University found that people who replaced their mattress every five years suffered significantly less back pain than those who did not.


If your mattress is old and worn out, it may not be supporting your body properly. The lack of proper support can lead to tension in your airways which, in turn, can lead to snoring. And snoring has the potential to be fatal.

Weight gain

If an old mattress is keeping your from sleeping and you’re getting up for the proverbial “midnight snack,? that’s the worst time to be snacking, and that could be something contributing to your weight problem.

Weakened immune system

Sleeping on an old mattress keeps you from getting high quality sleep, and that lack of sleep can weaken your immune system making you more susceptible to colds and other illnesses.

Memory impairment

During deep sleep, called REM, your brain forms memories, and if you can’t enter the REM stage of sleep, memories will not be formed the right way, and that leads to memory impairment.
