3 Signs You Need A New Mattress

This year has been crazy, and if you're anything like us, you've probably done your fair share of sleeping in. Earlier in the year, everyone's stress levels were so high, and our bed was our safe space.

But if you've been struggling to get to sleep or you notice that your mattress isn't quite as comfortable as it used to be, it may be time to get a new one. If we deserve anything after the last few months, it's the utmost comfort.

Well, our editors have found the most comfortable, smart mattress out there: the Pod Pro by Eight Sleep.

Here are the 3 signs that your mattress needs to be replaced:

1. A sore back

People have been suffering from back pain a lot this year. Working from home means that movement is much more restricted. It's hard to get your WFH ergonomics the same as it would be in the office. The Pod Pro by Eight Sleep is the perfect solution. The Pod Pro's foam layers offer lower back support to improve spinal alignment for side sleepers and reduce their pressure points. And if you sleep on your back, the robust support layers maintain an even surface for the perfect support.

2. You have trouble staying asleep

Falling asleep can be hard enough, but actually staying asleep can be a whole other ball game. Getting enough REM sleep is essential for your overall health. While staying asleep all night can sometimes feel like nothing more than a farfetched dream, the first step to getting a restful night's sleep is understanding your habits.

Eight Sleep's innovative sleep tracking app gives you great insights to what might be inhibiting your sleep. It tracks your nightly sleep performance by giving you a Sleep Fitness Score. It evaluates things like time slept, HRV, and sleep consistently to help you monitor your sleep and its impact on your overall health and wellness.

While an app isn't going to magically fix your sleeping woes, the daily insights provided by the Eight Sleep app can help you make adjustments to your routine that'll help you get the rest you deserve.

3. You're too hot at night

Mattresses retain heat, so it's common to feel too hot in bed. Temperature is a huge part of getting a good night's sleep. This can be a source of conflict if you're sharing a bed with someone and you can never agree on when the AC should be on or off.

The Pod Pro by Eight Sleep is the perfect solution as it lets you control the temperature of the mattress. Not only that, you can control the temperature of each side separately from your phone, so you and your partner can each choose your own perfect temperature to fall asleep to. Plus, you end up saving money since it's cheaper than running your A/C or Heater all night and doesn't run up your energy usage.

The Pod Pro isn't just a mattress. You can track your sleep habits, integrate it with your Alexa, and even your smart coffee maker! Plus, you can replace your annoying jangling alarm with the thermo alarm feature that adjusts the surface temperature of the mattress to wake you up naturally.

The stats speak for themselves. After just 1 month on the Pod Pro customers see a 17% increase in periods of deep sleep, and fall asleep up to 32% faster.

The Pod by Eight Sleep is revolutionary, so if you're thinking about getting a new mattress, we'd highly recommend checking it out. It'll give you the best sleep of your life.
