Five Sleep-Related Myths

According to a new survey by the Better Sleep Council, roughly half of Americans think it's illegal to cut the tag off their mattress . . . like the mattress cops will come arrest them.  That includes 53% of men, and 45% of women.

Those warnings are really just for the SELLER though.  Once you buy a mattress, you can do whatever you want with it.  

Here are four more sleep-related myths that a lot of people still believe . . .

1.  66% of us think you're supposed to replace your mattress every 10 years.  They CAN last that long, or longer.  But in general, it's every SEVEN years, not 10.

2.  43% of us think it's fine to just catch up on sleep over the weekend.  It's better to get a good night's sleep EVERY night.  Being tired all week can be tough on your body, and sleeping in on the weekend doesn't really make up for it.

3.  61% of us think that if you have a bad back, a FIRM mattress is always best.  In general, that one's true.  But not always.  Some people do better with a softer mattress, so it varies.

4.  Half of us think some people don't DREAM.  52% of men and 46% of women think that's true.  But EVERYONE has dreams.  Some people just don't remember them.
