Discomfort resulting from too little sleep or tossing and turning at night can be preventable. There are plenty of ways U.S. men and women can sleep better at night, promote good health, and increase sleep comfort. Here are just a few.
When Is The Best Time To Exercise For A Good Night’s Sleep?
Is there a right time to exercise to beat the symptoms of insomnia and/or generally sleep better at night? The answer is no. The notion that exercising at certain times of day (i.e. night) can keep you awake at night is false. There was a poll, which studied the sleep habits of 1,000 participants, found that an overwhelming majority of people who exercised at any time of day reported sleeping better than those who didn’t exercise at all!
Quality Sleep: What You Eat Matters!
Eating right may not only affect your heart and overall health — it can also affect how much (or how little) sleep you get at night, too. Foods rich in vitamins and nutrients, including halibut, salmon, and tuna, yogurt, whole grains, bananas, and more promote quality, restful sleep.
Is It Time To Replace Your Mattress?
Exercising regularly and eating well, however, will help you sleep better at night — but even exercise can’t fix a grossly uncomfortable mattress. Old, flat mattresses may not support Americans’ backs and limbs properly. Adjustable beds, on the other hand, literally offer users thousands of different, comfortable positions for sleeping and reclining. For instance, Craftmatic® Adjustable Beds equipped with optional heat and massage may provide temporary relief from:
• 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
• Symptoms of Gastric Reflux
• The optional heating accessory provides temporary relief from Mild Arthritis and Joint Pain, as well as Muscle Pain Associated with Stress and Tension
• Sleeping in an upright position may Reduce or Ease Light and Occasional Snoring
Getting a good night’s sleep — and beating chronic pain associated with trouble sleeping and/or insomnia — is possible. Make sure to get regular exercise and eat well, and consider replacing old, tattered mattresses with an adjustable bed.
