What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about getting proper sleep? A good pillow, some nice sheets, or a comfy mattress. Those are good answers and will definitely help, but what about the quality of the actual bed base that holds your mattress? Perhaps, it could use some thought.
Let’s take a deep dive into the benefits of adding not just any bed base but an adjustable bed base to your bed, and why it could improve your sleep like nothing you’ve ever tried before.
Quality sleep is an essential part of healthy living. You need plenty of rest to function throughout your day, and it helps you recover from the previous day. What happens when you don’t get enough sleep? Studies show that lack of sleep is linked to many chronic health problems, like high blood pressure, obesity and depression.
Time to take control over your sleep, and an adjustable bed base can help you do just that.
Here are a few study-backed reasons why an adjustable base can significantly improve your sleep.
Trying to sleep through back, neck, hip, or leg pain is next to impossible. You’re up all night adjusting and re-adjusting pillows to get them in the right positions to help alleviate pain. With an adjustable bed base, you can easily raise your legs, head, upper body, or lower body to help relieve unwanted pain.
If you specifically want to alleviate upper back or neck pain, you can take the pressure off by raising the adjustable bed base’s backrest to an elevated position.
Dealing with lower-back pain or pain in your legs? Then the zero-gravity position is what you’re looking for. This position raises your back and legs to help evenly distribute your weight.
Do you or your partner have a problem snoring throughout the night? For couples, this can make sleeping in the same bed a miserable experience. In some cases, it can even lead to sleeping in separate rooms to catch some much-needed sleep.
To help reduce the nighttime foghorn, the adjustable bed base can be slightly elevated at whatever angle works best. Science shows that sleeping with your head slightly elevated stops the buildup of mucus and better opens your airways.
Most people do this with pillows, but an adjustable bed base can simply raise your head a few inches and remain that way, without moving out of position, keeping you comfier and breathing easier.
Our bodies are incredible creations. They do so much for us every day of our lives. And, like most living things, they can get worn out from time to time. When this happens, even simple tasks like getting in and out of bed can seem utterly daunting but, with an adjustable bed base, you can support and even speed up recovery, so you’re back on your feet and doing what you love.
Whether you’re dealing with everyday mobility issues, recovering from surgery, or getting better from a cold, an adjustable bed base can alleviate congestion by elevating your body or ease the pain of standing up from a vertical position.
An adjustable bed base can raise your upper body and your legs to an almost seated position, making it easier to swing your legs off your mattress and into a full upright seated position. Need to elevate a broken leg or foot? An adjustable base can do that too.
Are you someone who lies awake, tossing and turning, praying for sleep each night? Dealing with insomnia is an exhausting ordeal and could have many underlying issues contributing to it.
While an adjustable bed base might not be the cure-all you’re looking for, it can certainly help improve breathing and reduce pain and anxiety, along with some of the other main causes of insomnia, with its variety of sleep positions to choose from.
When set in certain positions, an adjustable bed base can substantially improve blood circulation and oxygen levels throughout your body, which is vital since your blood pressure already drops when you’re asleep.
Better circulation also helps prevent swelling in your legs and feet, which you’ll be better equipped to handle with the option to elevate your legs while you sleep.
