A Majority Of Americans Are Guilty Of The #1 Cause Of Poor Sleep!
The National Sleep Foundation reports that back and neck pain, jaw pain (TMJ disorders), and headaches are the most common medical problems that keep Americans up at night. And lack of quality sleep can cause lasting fatigue that worsens symptoms of existing medical conditions, often leading to a feedback loop that makes getting better a serious challenge.
That’s why more and more Americans, and more and more of their doctors, are investing in adjustable beds to help solve these problems. And while adjustable beds certainly aren’t a panacea, adjustable beds can help provide relief from a variety of medical problems. Plus, adjustable beds can help you get a better night’s sleep.
If you have trouble sleeping at night, then here are some fast facts you absolutely need to know:
1. Are You Your Worst Enemy?
Doctors say that lying or sitting in bed for more than 15 or 20 minutes with no intention of sleeping can make it far more difficult to fall asleep when you actually want to. In fact, doctors say there are only two activities you should do in your bed. First, obviously, sleep! And second, the kind of activities married couples sometimes enjoy, and we’re not talking about the crossword puzzle. Watching TV in bed, reading in bed, and similar activities can help make it harder to fall asleep.
2. Adjustable Beds Might Help You Get Better Sleep
The National Sleep Foundation says that adjustable beds help take pressure off parts of your body that make sleeping uncomfortable. Even a slight incline at the head or foot of a bed can stop you from curling or bending your legs, which can cause unwanted pain. And because you unconsciously toss and turn to change from uncomfortable sleeping positions, adjustable beds can not only help you fall asleep faster, but also help you get better sleep once you do.
3. Do You Have A Snoring Problem?
If you have a snoring problem, like, for instance, your husband sounds like a freight train at night, then sleeping in an upright position can help reduce certain kinds of snoring.
4. The Benefits Of Heat Massage Adjustable Beds Are Legion
In addition to the benefits of adjustable beds, adjustable bed mattresses that include heat and massage features can help ease the symptoms of arthritis, nighttime heartburn, joint pain, edema and swelling of the legs, and a number of other conditions that not only make it harder to fall asleep, but also make it harder to be awake without suffering from pain.
If any of these four items apply to you or your spouse, then it’s time to finally consider the many benefits of various types of adjustable beds.
