Common Sleep Problems & How To Overcome Them
Sleep problems. Something we all will have experienced at some point.
Just like food and water, sleep is essential for our health and well-being. Poor sleep is linked to a wide range of issues including diabetes, depression, obesity and heart attacks. Despite this, four in ten people report they aren’t getting enough sleep, while one in five sleep poorly most nights.
Given its importance to our overall health and well being, we look at some common sleep problems and how an adjustable bed could help to overcome them.
Common Sleep Problems
Insomnia refers to the difficulties people face falling to sleep and staying asleep. It also includes waking up earlier than normal and not being able to fall back to sleep.
While insomnia can be related to psychological factors such as stress and anxiety, did you know that another culprit could be your bed?
Being uncomfortable in bed can cause problems with falling and staying asleep. An adjustable bed provides a variety of different positional options for you to choose from to help you sleep longer and more comfortably.
Snoring is a common sleeping problem that is reported to affect over 30 million people in the UK on a nightly basis.
Whether you are the culprit yourself or the partner of a snorer, you will know the frustration this can be bring when you are trying to fall asleep.
By sleeping on an adjustable bed, with your upper body elevated, air is able to flow more freely and reduces the vibrations that lead to snoring.
Sleep apnea occurs when you stop breathing for a short time whilst sleeping.
Sleep apnea is a worrying condition that can lead to the sufferer waking up intermittently throughout the night due to a lack of oxygen.
Elevating your upper body encourages relaxation of the obstructed airways and allows improved breathing as the diaphragm is lower.
Aches & Pains
If you suffer from aches and pains, you’ll know the negative effect it can have on your sleeping patterns. Whether you suffer from back ache, arthritis or other joint pains, an adjustable bed can really help.
At the touch of a button you can adjust your bed into a variety of comfortable positions to help you sleep better at night.
