It’s a well-known fact that you spend about a third of every day in bed. Yet, if that time is used for restless tossing and turning, one thing is clear: your overall health will suffer.
Studies by The National Institutes of Health (NIH) show that people who sleep well enjoy multiple health benefits.
They manage stress better and have more energy. They also minimize their risks of catching colds and even more serious diseases such as hypertension and diabetes.
Your mattress plays a big part.
Chiropractors encourage people to buy a mattress that adapts to the spine’s natural curve while distributing pressure uniformly along the body. Adjustable beds can be a good choice for those who share a bed, or if you need to sleep with your head raised for any breathing concerns.
A good mattress also regulates body temperature accurately. Why is this important? When sleeping on a mattress that is in poor condition, the body’s temperature will rise, which generates sweat. Your heart rate and blood pressure will correspondingly surge, and consequently, your breathing will become irregular, which often disturbs sleep.
Since each person is different, there isn’t one kind of mattress that will fit every person’s concerns. It is important to consult with a sleep professional when deciding upon a mattress. They can assess your sleeping position to best recommend a mattress that is customized exactly to you.
