How to Get a Good Night’s sleep
A good night’s sleep is vitally important. It leaves one feeling chipper, healthy, happy and efficient in the morning. Over time a good night’s sleep can also promote good health. It’s easy to forget, but as we sleep our bodies are vulnerable to a variety of stresses from our beds and from our bodies themselves. You may think that getting a better sleep doesn’t matter when it comes to chronic pain but according to the National Sleep Foundation 15% of Americans say that they experience chronic pain due to sleeping. This makes the use of an ergonomic bed and the below tips vitally important.
First, you should find the best sleep mattress for you. Having an ergonomic bed is the first step to a good night sleep.
Second, you should consider an adjustable bed mattress. The best test for seeing if you should purchase an adjustable bed is whether or not you often fall asleep on your living room lounge chair. If so, and if you find this “bed” more comfortable than your own mattress, you should consider purchasing an adjustable ergonomic bed that replicates the feeling of falling asleep on your favorite Lazy Boy.
Third, consider making your ergonomic bed even more comfortable. Many beds come with heating and massage options or memory foam. Some people may say that these additions to your bed are a waste of money, but they could be vitally important to your health. Most people when they buy a car splurge on leather seats and ABS breaks, in other words they add on options in order to make the experience of driving more comfortable. Individuals should do the same when they purchase an ergonomic bed.
Fourth, make sure that after you have bought your ergonomic bed, that you are sleeping on it the right way. A good way to make sure that you are doing this is to put pillows at the head or foot of your bed in order to create a slight incline. This prevents you from curling up and bending your legs, which causes unwanted pain. There’s no point in having an ergonomic bed if you’re sleeping on it the wrong way.
Lastly, good exercise and low stress are incredibly important for getting a good night sleep.
