Download the guide to sleeping well
You are generally awake before your alarm clock.

You find yourself turning in all directions, to find a comfortable position to prolong sleep in vain. The passing years seem a little too obvious. You are neither sick nor ageing rapidly: these pressures and pains come from your bed! It may be simply that the mattress is old, the bed base worn, or maybe the assembly is too firm or too flexible. Your bed deserves some scrutiny; is it still the one that you had at college? What about this mattress? Did it see you through the birth of your 3 children?

How to recognise failing bedding?
