Better Sleep Month kicks off this May. Supported by the Better Sleep Council (BSC), Better Sleep Month aims to bring awareness to the importance of quality sleep while encouraging people to establish healthy sleep patterns. Sleep is just as important to our physical, mental, and emotional health as diet and exercise. Getting your best night’s rest starts with creating a sleep environment that promotes comfort and relaxation.
Keeping technology and work materials out of the bedroom, exercising early in the day or evening, and making sleep a priority are a few ways to work towards healthier sleeping habits.
Key to a good night’s rest is being in a sleep position that promotes comfort and circulation. Having the ability to move into the proper sleep position can help reduce the physical stresses on your body so you can relax and wake up feeling refreshed. An adjustable base allows you to adjust your position with simple controls.
If you’re looking to improve your sleep quality, consider these four benefits of an adjustable base:
Find neutral posture position: When our body is properly aligned our bones, rather than our muscles, support our weight. The neutral posture position is a measurable set of angles of 128 degrees between the torso and thigh and 133 degrees between the hamstring and calf. This position allows the spine to be in its most relieved, relaxed and stable alignment. This in turn improves circulation, reduces pressure on the spine, relieves tension and alleviates low back pain.
Personalized comfort: An adjustable base provides a personalized sleep system and the perfect position based on your preferences to ensure a comfortable, relaxing sleep experience.
Rejuvenating massage: Ease tension, increase circulation, reduce stress, and improve sleep with a relaxing vibration massage.
Reduce acid reflect and heartburn: Sleeping with your head elevated helps reduce acid reflux and heartburn by retaining stomach acids and keeping them from traveling up to the esophagus.
