The Many Benefits of Buying an Adjustable Bed
How well you sleep has both short-term effects (mood, focus, memory) and long-term effects (immune system, weight, risk of heart disease). You can’t afford even one restless night, so reassess your sleeping situation if it’s a recurring problem. You might find that the many benefits of buying an adjustable bed make it worth the switch.
Today’s adjustable frames are as healthy for you as hospital beds, but with a luxurious quality that makes them feel like an indulgence. They’re available in every size up to California King, and with a handy remote, you won’t ever have to fuss with propping up pillows again. A few more perks include:
Adjusting the head and foot of your bed can take pressure off your spine and your sciatic nerve. You can more closely mimic your body’s natural contours and sleep on your back without awkward gaps.
A lot of people who sleep on their backs have a problem with snoring (whether they admit it or not). But adjustable beds can alleviate many breathing issues just by raising your head, removing extra weight that gravity puts on your windpipe. Angling your sleep position increases airflow, which benefits people who suffer from sleep apnea and asthma.
If you’ve ever experienced acid reflux or heartburn while lying down, you’re not alone. It means that your stomach acids have reached your esophagus. If you raise your head between six and eight inches, the acid will settle back into your stomach.
Sleeping with your feet in a higher position can help with swelling and circulation in general. You can adjust the bed frame according to what your doctor recommends for optimal blood and oxygen flow.
If you feel more pain in the mornings, the problem can be with the way you’re sleeping. Try different settings to find the best way to remove pressure from your joints.
Give yourself more reasons to linger in bed by making it more multifunctional. You can watch television from bed without hurting your neck by treating it like a recliner. You can work, read, and even take meetings in bed if it comes to that. If you’ve been having ergonomic problems with your work-from-home setup, an adjustable bed is a viable alternative to try (especially if you’ve mastered virtual backgrounds on Zoom).
Getting in and out effortlessly is another one of the many benefits of buying an adjustable bed. If you have trouble getting around, it can give you more independence to be able to get up on your own. But see it—and test it—for yourself at one of Midwest Clearance Center’s six stores.
