We’ve all had a bad traffic encounter or a hard conversation at work that made us wonder, “How do these awful people go to bed at night knowing how they treat others.” It turns out, they probably sleep just fine. The National Sleep Foundation says that chronic pain plays a big part in how we sleep and if you’ve been spending all your time bending over backwards for others, the Sleep Foundation might just be talking about you.
So if being a good person won’t put us on the path to a restful night sleep, what will? Some say adjustable bed mattresses are the key. For example, a sleep system bed with an adjustable mattress gives a slight incline at the head or foot of your bed that can stop you from positioning your body in a way that causes undue pressure and pain. At night, our bodies are tossing and turning to relieve pressure, not to address a guilty conscience.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, adjustable beds can help take pressure off places where the body is experiencing tension while sleeping. Ever have incredible ease falling asleep in a recline or rocking chair? A sleep system bed could be perfect for you. These kinds of beds position you in a similar way to a recliner to get the best and least tense sleep.
This is not to say that you should be a bad person, go get an adjustable bed and call it day. Being a good person is still very important. However, it doesn’t seem to be the key to a restful night’s sleep.
