If you’re seeking energy, alertness and a more positive attitude, you might want to look to consider your sleep habits. Between 50 million and 70 million U.S. adults have a sleep disorder, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and 30 percent sleep six or fewer hours a day, impacting their immune systems and increasing risks for chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.
The kind of bed you have certainly helps you get an adequate amount of zzz’s. And adjustable bases, one of the fastest growing better sleep trends today, should be on your radar.
An adjustable bed base lifts the top and bottom of the mattress between 40 and 70 degrees for an infinite number of positions. Hospitals even use a version of the bases.
Here are some things to consider about adjustable base beds:
Lifting your body to different positions will restore a sense of well-being to relieve pain and soreness, allowing tissue a chance to improve. After a long day, you can raise your torso to relax and watch TV or read your favorite author; or raise you legs or lower your feet into a lounge position.
Sleeping in an elevated position can alleviate breathing through the mouth, post nasal drip, snoring and sleep apnea, heart congestion and inflammation and shortness of breath. It can also help with soothing head stuffiness, relieving migraines, and treating spine and movement disorders.
The ability to raise your torso, legs and head to different positions at any time means you adjust to your specific needs and relieve pressure points to improve circulation as well as reduce pain and inflammation to get you the best rest available.
Review your needs to best suit the adjustable base to your sleeping habits.
You can have a king bed that is “unified’ or a split king that allows a couple to have joint settings or their own personal options and adjustments. You can also get a queen size unified or a “split” queen if you prefer a smaller size bed or need more floor space.
Many adjustable bases have a massage feature; USB ports to charge your phone or tablet; under-the-bed lighting to guide you in the middle of the night; and various memory settings — sleep, zero gravity, snoring, acid reflux — that can be programmed to fit your body’s needs.
Adjustable bases fit in any bed, so there’s no need to replace your headboard, footboard and rails.
Just remove your old foundation and slats and replace with the new adjustable base.
Costs have recently come down, making adjustable bases more affordable and more common for all age groups.
