Bed Smart 101
There is more to comfort than just your mattress. Your entire bed set can help improve the way you improve your sleep and your overall health. With over 50 million adults in the US reporting to have some sort of sleep disorder, it’s time to help address each person unique sleep needs.
Adjustable bases are one of the best ways to help you get a great night’s sleep. There are many personal and health benefits that come from using one. Here are some of the top benefits of using an adjustable base:
Reduce Back Pain
You don’t get the support that you need when you are lying flat. By using an adjustable base, it can help reduce the pressure on your spine. Positioning your head at a 45-degree slant with base can help with lower back pain, and also get rid of the need for using multiple pillows to prop your head up. Many adjustable base models come with a zero-gravity position preset that allows you to go to the recommended position that takes the pressure off your spine completely.
Reduce Indigestion Problems
You never want to lay flat after a big meal, so why lay flat when you go to sleep. Laying flat can cause stomach acids to come into your esophagus and cause heartburn. People with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can benefit from an adjustable base because it allows them to elevate their upper body to prevent reflux and aid in digestion.
Your heart needs to maintain regular circulation to help it do its job properly. When laying down flat, it can cause the heart to work harder than it needs to and can exacerbate heart problems. Elevating your legs can help improve your body’s blood circulation. Plus, it can also lessen swelling legs and feet. Fluid retention can cause the body to swell. By elevating your legs can help reduce this issue.
Every person has a different comfort need. Adjustable bases allow you to pick multiple angles and positions that fit what your sleep needs. Some models also include massage capabilities, USB hubs, and under-bed lighting. You can customize your in-bed experience to exactly what you need.
So Long Snoring
When you sleep, your throat muscles relax and sometimes you cannot get the proper air flow through – leading to snoring. According to the Sleep Association, 48 percent of people have reported to have issues with snoring. Adjustable bases have the ability to position your body at an incline to allow more airflow to your lungs. It can also help those who suffer from sleep apnea.
Enjoy Entertainment in Comfort
Your bed doesn’t have to be just for sleeping. An adjustable base allows you find the perfect position for watching tv, reading, and also eating a snack (if that’s your jam). You can even get a split mattress (ex. Split King) that will allow you and your sleep partner to pick your prime position for enjoying your favorite in bed activities.
