We don’t always get the sleep we need. There are several reasons for this. Improper diet, along with eating too close to bed time, can throw off our bodies and prevent sleep. Lack of exercise is another factor for sleeplessness. When we exercise regularly, our bodies naturally wind down when it’s time for bed. Stress is another big one. We’ve all had those nights where there’s just too much to think about and our minds refuse to shut down.
All of these things can amended with lifestyle changes. With better eating habits, regular exercise, and stress management techniques, getting a good night’s rest is certainly made easier. But with an uncomfortable bed, sleeping through the night still isn’t a guarantee. Traditional mattresses are flat, despite our backs being S-shaped. This results in tossing and turning throughout the night, making sleep more difficult.
Fortunately, there are adjustable beds that conform to your body’s shape and allow you to change how hard, soft, and elevated the bed is. The National Sleep Foundation has found that switching to an adjustable bed may make sleep more comfortable by removing pressure from certain areas of the body. These beds are also good for relaxing before bed, as they can adjust to support your back like a chair or couch.
There are several types and sizes of adjustable beds available. Like traditional beds, there are twin adjustable beds, full, queen, and king. Craftmatic® Adjustable Beds also offer dual queen and king beds, which allow each side of the bed its own adjustable mattress. This way, you and your partner can sleep comfortably in a position suited for each of you. The sizes of adjustable beds varies within each category as well. Some are longer and wider to suit the needs of the individual.
