Is your bed comfortable? This may not be a question you ask yourself, but it’s something worth paying attention to. One way to know for sure is to see how you feel when you get up in the morning. Are you still tired? Do you feel any aches or pains that only seem to increase with time? If these have been issues for you, it may not just be you. It could be your bed.
If you’re trying to gauge your bed comfort, pay attention to these three factors:
- Memory foam: Memory foam mattresses became popular a few years ago because of how they conform to one’s shape while sleeping. They are also ideal for couples because they won’t disturb one another when they change positions at night. If you’ve been using an old-fashioned spring mattress, it may be time to consider this popular alternative.
- Adjustable controls: Adjustable beds may make you think of hospital beds, but the adjustable mattresses in homes are nothing like the ones used for medical purposes. These beds come in all sizes, from twin to king size adjustable beds. In fact, king and queen beds may be equipped with dual controls, so each partner can find his or her own optimal comfort level. Adjustable memory foam beds are also popular, so you can combine the comfort of memory foam with the functionality of an adjustable bed.
- State-of-the-art features: Adjustable controls and memory foam aren’t the only features that are must-haves for bed comfort. Adjustable beds, especially, also come with additional options, like heating and massage functions. If you choose a Craftmatic® brand adjustable bed, for instance, then you can see these two options. These features can provide temporary relief from conditions such as low back pain, minor aches and pains due to muscular fatigue or overexertion, edema or swelling of the legs, poor local blood circulation of the legs, symptoms of hiatus hernia, nighttime heartburn, and symptoms of gastric reflux. Additionally, the heating accessory itself may provide temporary relief from mild arthritis and joint pain, as well as muscle pain associated with stress and tension. This is in addition to the benefits of sleeping in an upright position, which may help reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
