A Sleep Number Bed Impacts Health
When most people think about maintaining wellness, proper bedding is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Diet and exercise are usually what most people consider the important contributors to good health even though sleep – or the lack of it – plays a more significant role.
Experts say we spend about one-third of our entire lives in bed. Especially with the way ever growing numbers of people now use their bedrooms as entertainment centers, it’s easy to see how impactful that environment can be – either positive or negative.
Good health starts in the bedroom and air mattresses by quality brands like Sleep Number and Simply Rest can help build a solid sleep foundation by providing proper support and individualized firmness levels for a fully customized sleep experience. When you get the right amount of sleep – experts recommend six to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep – you will be happier, more productive and generally healthier.
Without proper sleep intervals, the body quickly begins to slide into disarray. Insomnia is a leading cause of irritability, forgetfulness, poor motivation and a host of other conditions that range from mildly annoying to medically serious. In extreme cases, people have been known to suffer organ failure and even death when deprived of sleep over an extended period of time.
While that scenario is unlikely to play out for the vast majority of the population, the lesser symptoms are felt by millions every single night when they get into bed and can’t get to sleep or stay asleep because their internal spring mattress is poking and prodding at their backs, sides, legs and any other body part that comes in contact. The pressure points created by innerspring mattresses are a significant contributor to poor circulation, general physical discomfort and ultimately insomnia.
Sleep Number Bed Advantages
The dual air chamber design of Select Comfort air beds and Simply Rest mattresses eliminates the need for springs as a support apparatus. With an easy to use remote control, firmness levels on each side of the bed can be individually adjusted to meet personal sleep needs – the most customizable experience available on the bedding market.
Unfortunately for most people, the positive or negative impacts of sleep on health and wellness aren’t realized until negative symptoms have already materialized. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to address your sleep time needs with a high quality air mattress by Sleep Number or Simply Rest.
