The average American adult spends more than 3,000 hours in bed every year, but what experts want to know is whether they are really getting any rest. Standard mattresses do have a relatively short lifespan, and sleeping on a bed that is more than about seven years old can make back and neck problems more noticeable.
Millions of people are investing in visits to physical therapy, chiropractors, and doctors, but part of the solution might be to invest in a newer, adjustable mattress. Speaking with a professional mattress retailer about therapeutic sleep options could be a terrific first step toward improving sleep quality and duration.
Sleeping on a regular mattress, according to sleep experts, is like ingesting a steady diet of junk food. We may not notice the damage that we do to ourselves every day, but over the course of several years we must realize that we could be eating and sleeping much better.
An adjustable memory foam bed should provide adults with sleep disorders or physical pain with higher comfort levels and a higher percentage of hours spent in deep sleep. Optional heating cycles can provide a therapeutic component to sleep; mattress owners can experiment with different settings to heating and massage components until they find the combination that works best for them.
People who snore may also find that an adjustable memory foam bed can help them to snore less frequently and wake up fewer times each night; a supportive bed may allow for more undisturbed sleep for people with other kinds of chronic sleep problems besides snoring as well. In general, feeling tired during the day may be a strong indication that upgrading to an adjustable memory foam bed may be advisable.
We spend so much time in bed working, resting, watching television, and relaxing that we may not realize that we are using a mattress that is decades old. Investing in an adjustable bed may be the first step, along with improved diet and exercise, toward getting a full, satisfying night’s sleep. Our bodies need to rest fully every night, and experts suggest that taking stock of how well we are sleeping could be vital for our productivity and overall well-being.
Adjustable beds equipped with optional heat and massage, for example, may provide temporary relief of low back pain, minor aches and pains due to muscular fatigue or overexertion, edema or swelling of the legs, poor local blood circulation of the legs, symptoms of hiatus hernia, symptoms of gastric reflux, nighttime heartburn. The optional heating accessory provides temporary relief from mild arthritis and joint pain, as well as muscle pain associated with stress and tension. Sleeping in an upright position may reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
