For many Americans, getting a good night’s sleep is not something that comes easy. Research from the National Sleep Foundation actually reports that roughly 66% of people in the United States have indicated having issues getting renewing sleep. Not only can a lack of sleep lead to increased irritability and stress levels, but improper sleeping habits can take a toll on your physical health as well.
The American Chiropractic Association figures report that sleeping puts an estimated 50 pounds of weight on the spine. In addition, the typical kind of flat mattress used by the average American does not fully support the natural S-curve of the back. This can lead to increased neck, back, shoulder, and overall pain in muscles in the body.
If you find yourself struggling to fall asleep due to aches and pains, you may want to look into purchasing an adjustable bed. There are many types of adjustable beds from a twin to a queen bed. An adjustable bed may be the missing piece of the puzzle you need to get a good night’s sleep.
How Purchasing an Adjustable Bed May Help You Sleep Better:
- The major benefit of adjustable beds is the fact that you can alter the mattress to practically any shape you want it and can move it to support specific areas of your body. Many adjustable beds can come with memory foam, increasing your overall bed comfort and support of problem areas on your body.
- The National Sleep Foundation has conducted research that says that an adjustable bed may be able to reduce pressure on achy areas of the body. When you are able to feel physically at ease, it becomes much easier to fall asleep and to wake up.
- Many people who are interested in purchasing an adjustable bed — whether it be a twin, king or queen bed — are all typically concerned about the cost. However, buying an adjustable bed doesn’t have to empty your back account. Many stores offer discounts and promotions at certain times of the year, and many also offer payment plans if you can’t pay in full. Investing in adjustable bed is an investment in your health.
Finding the right adjustable bed for you is more than just finding a place to lie down at night. It’s about finding something supportive that will allow you to become healthier with deeper, more restful sleep and allow you to tackle your days with energy and focus.
