When it comes to good health and well-being, sleep is just as important as diet and exercise. Adequate sleep plays a vital role in protecting our physical health, mental health, and quality of life.
Research has shown sleep helps to improve learning, decision making, and our creative mindset, heal and repair our heart and blood vessels reducing the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke, and maintain a healthy balance of hormones.
Start improving your health in the bedroom by getting a restful night of sleep. Depending on your sleep style and pain needs, here are a number of positions that will help you have lasting comfort.
Sleeping On Your Back
This is the healthiest position for most. It is also one of the best for those suffering from acid reflux, back pain or recovering from spine surgery. This position allows your spine, head, and neck to rest in a neutral posture. If you are experiencing lower back pain, an adjustable base or Bed Wedge System will help you maintain the natural curve of your lower back while providing support in bed when sleeping, reading or relaxing. Ensure proper alignment from head to toe with a medium support pillow that maintains the natural curvature of your head, neck, and upper spine. The TEMPUR-Neck pillow will provide proper support throughout the night.
Sleeping On Your Side
Ideal for those with sleep apnea or who suffer from habitual snoring, this position prevents the tissue and muscles in the throat from collapsing. Sleeping on your side also elongates your spine to help ease and prevent back pain. Add additional spinal support by placing a pillow, such as the ContourSleep Knee Spacer, between your knees. This ergonomic sleep position allows tense muscles to relax and circulation to improve through the night. A high pillow with firm support that cradles the head, neck, and shoulders will provide the most comfort and relief in this position. The ContourSide Pillow by Relax The Back was created specifically for side sleepers. For those who are pregnant, try the DreamWeaver Body Pillow to help improve blood flow while providing your entire body with ergonomic support.
Sleeping In Various Positions
If you do not have one preferred sleep position, be sure to have a mattress and pillow that provides proper ergonomic support. The TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Back Pillow provides a personalized sleep experience that is perfect for those who shift from sleeping on your side to your back throughout the night. If you are a hot sleeper, add cooling gel products such as Technogel Sleeping Pillows, the TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze, or the PureRelax Zoned Gel Topper by Relax The Back to your sleep environment. These products keep you cool and comfortable all night long.
