Why Beds Matter When You Sleep

At the end of the day, the only comforting thought that helps you get from work to your home is your nice, soft bed and the hours you’d spend on it in deep slumber. We used to hate being told to sleep when we were younger because our then free spirited nature only wanted to explore the outdoors. Unfortunately, adult responsibilities are too much for us once we grew up that we long for the comfort of our beds and being able to sleep and wake up whenever we want to.

You actually spend a third of your life asleep. It is why finding the right bed is crucial for your comfort and so that you sleep better at night too. You don’t want to spend most of your time tossing and turning because you don’t feel comfortable in your own bed. It defeats the purpose of sleeping in the first place. Roughly 92% of the population agree that a good mattress is crucial for a good night’s sleep. You don’t want to end up feeling more tired upon waking up than you did before going to sleep.

“Waking up on the wrong side of the bed” could mean several things, one of that being you’re sleeping on a mattress that isn’t right for you.

Sometimes it could be the pillows. They could be too hard, too soft or too lumpy. Or for some people, it could be the thread count of your pillow cases and sheets. Or you could simply be suffering from a sleep disorder.

Whether you are  sleeping in your own bed or a hotel room, you’re always looking for a good night’s sleep.

Sleeping is as important as eating. It is essential for your overall health and wellbeing.

A night’s sleep is divided into five stages, which are defined by types of brain waves that reflect lighter or deeper sleep. Rapid eye movement or REM happens toward morning. This is when dreaming occurs.

The main factor in choosing a bed is whether you feel right when lying down on it. Stay away from brands where you end up with all sorts of aches and pains upon arising.

Today’s adjustable beds let people sharing a bed set their own sleep positions. A wife can adjust her husband’s position if his snoring is keeping her awake, adds Jay Thompson, president of the Leggett & Platt Adjustable Bed Group in Carthage, Missouri. His company makes adjustable bed bases.

Many customers — particularly millennials — choose adjustable beds because they want to use the features while they are awake, he says. Raising the top of the mattress makes it more comfortable to work, read or watch TV.

“It’s the idea that I just want to be able to adjust my position for comfort. I don’t want to have to prop a half a dozen pillows when I want to chill out in my bed and watch TV or work,” Thompson says. “It’s a lifestyle buy.”

Address snoring as well as other minor discomforts like joint and back pain by purchasing a bed that you can adjust so you sleep better at night. It’s all about comfort now when you go to sleep such as purchasing a mattress without that much cushioning to allow the neutral positioning of the spine.

Moreover, make sure you limit technology use to outside the bedroom because they are the main cause of sleep deprivation these days. The blue light they emit is also detrimental to your health. Make sure you reserve the bed for just sleeping and sex. Those are the only two activities you can do in bed, so as not to mess up your sleeping pattern and affect your overall sleep quality. When you do that, you won’t have a hard time falling asleep in a bed that screams comfort all along.
