Are you sleeping well? If you’re like most people, you may have trouble drifting off to sleep at night, and you may not be waking fully refreshed in the morning. Twin and luxury adjustable beds alike, however, come with adjustable mattresses that will allow you to choose any angle you need to get comfortable.
Why try an adjustable mattress on an electric bed? Here are the top four reasons you may want to try one if you haven’t already:
#4: You could fall asleep faster.
Research shows that the average person who spends 15 to 20 minutes awake in bed will have more trouble falling asleep later on. By allowing your body to get comfortable, you can fall asleep faster, so you won’t struggle to find the right sleeping position well into the evening. The faster you fall asleep, the less likely you may be to lose valuable shut-eye during the night.
#3: It may help you sleep how you were meant to.
During the night, most people have a tendency to curl up or toss and turn. This, however, can place the spine, legs, and neck in harm’s way and lead to painful backaches later on. In order to sleep without putting yourself at risk, the National Sleep Foundation says that an adjustable mattress can take pressure off of certain areas of the body. For instance, lying on your side rather than your back can put too much pressure on your spine. If you lay how you were meant to — on your back — then you can help ease any pain by adjusting your legs or torso to an appropriate height.
#2: Your back (and much of your body) might thank you for it.
Believe it or not, when you sleep better, you may also experience less pain in your day-to-day life. Some styles of adjustable beds have plenty of extras that will help keep you comfortable, especially if you happen to suffer from chronic pain. Craftmatic® Adjustable Beds equipped with optional heat and massage, for instance, may provide temporary relief from conditions like low back pain, minor aches and pains due to muscular fatigue or overexertion, edema or swelling of the legs, poor blood circulation of the legs, symptoms of hiatus hernia, nighttime heartburn, and symptoms of gastric reflux. That optional heating accessory may also provide temporary relief from mild arthritis and joint pain, as well as muscle pain associated with stress and tension, and by sleeping in an upright position, you might even reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
#1: They’re not just made for one.
Many people may think of adjustable beds as like hospital beds. That is, that they’re only twin beds made for one person. However, today there are a number of beds that allow you to sleep next to a partner comfortably. King size adjustable beds, for instance, will actually adjust on either side, so you can choose your own settings and your partner can select different ones.
