Always Exhausted? 4 Reasons Your Mattress Might Be to Blame

Are you tired of waking up tired? Longing for the days when you use to jump out of bed with a grin, ready to face the day? Sometimes coffee and a grim determination to work through your fatigue just aren’t enough—you need to address deeper issues. Looking at where you sleep may give you new answers to an old problem. Here are four reasons your mattress could be causing you to wake up feeling beat.

Bad contact points

Stiffness in your joints and muscles can be a clear sign that your mattress isn’t supporting your body in the right way. When a mattress is too soft, it can cause your hips to drop too low at night (which contributes to back pain). When a mattress is too hard, it creates stiff contact points and prevents your body from fully relaxing. Molecule mattresses are designed to be, like Goldilocks said, just right. They provide your body with a balance of comfort and support, so that you can recover fully at night, and wake energized.

Lost recovery time

An uncomfortable mattress can prevent you from getting enough slow wave sleep This is a huge problem because that sort of deep sleep is when your body recovers most. As the brain shuts down to sleep and process information, the ensuing freed-up blood begins to heal your muscles and tendons, preparing them for the next day. A proper mattress (especially one that is scientifically designed for recovery, like Molecule’s are) will maximize this time. This is crucial because if sleep is interrupted, the whole healing cycle loses its effectiveness.

Nighttime overheating

An interrupted sleep schedule can leave you feeling exhausted in the morning, and one of the main causes of this is temperature. When you become too hot or too cold, your body is forced to adjust, which brings you out of that restorative slow wave sleep. This is often the fault of your bedding. Because most old-fashioned mattresses lack the ability to adapt to your body’s shifting nighttime temperatures, Molecule has designed their new mattresses with technology that effectively stabilizes your temperature during the night, preventing you from waking up due to temperature issues.

General discomfort

Tossing and turning trying to get to sleep? Your mattress might simply be getting too old to do its job right. A good mattress should last about 10 years, but a subpar mattress should be replaced as soon as possible. If you’re not comfortable, it’s time to think about upgrading, full stop. With a new Molecule mattress, you treat your body to ultimate support and comfort every time you lay down to rest, and you’ll feel the difference in the morning, when you wake up energized and ready to seize the day.
