Wake Up to These Facts About Sleep

We all know what It’s like to have a poor night’s sleep, and to struggle to make it through the next day without nodding off at your desk. Yet If you do not get a good night of sleep, your health could actually be negatively affected over the long time. One of the best ways to get a good night sleep is to make sure that you have proper bed comfort. A king adjustable bed can surely assure comfortable sleeping.

With a king adjustable bed, you have much more control over your sleeping position. You can set yourself at a slight incline. An incline will prevent your body from curling or bending, which can cause unwanted discomfort. In fact, during sleep, people unconsciously toss and turn all night in an attempt at avoiding all of the pain caused by a flat mattress. Another benefit to tilting the bed is that you can raise your legs up for sleep, which may provide temporary relief from edema. And, if you like to read in bed before sleep, you can even raise the back enough to support you, much like a chair would.

Why is comfortable sleep, such that can be gained from using a king adjustable bed so important? Comfortable sleep equals rested sleep. When your body is fully at rest, that is when it can completely recharge and repair itself.

Lack of sleep has been known to cause many health complications, including memory loss, heart disease, a weakened immune system, and high blood pressure. Poor sleep can also cause increased stress and appetite, as well as fluctuations in weight.

Additionally, a lack of sleep is actually the cause of 20 percent of car accidents. Being awake for 18 hours is like having a blood alcohol level of .05 percent, while being awake for a full 24 hours is equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. It only takes a .04 percent to be charged with a DUI in some states. Drowsy driving is responsible for 100,000 auto accidents, 71,00 injuries, and 1,550 deaths each year.

Humans can actually survive longer without food or water than they can without sleep. If you fall asleep within five minutes of lying down, that is a good sign that you may be sleep deprived. The optimal time should be about 10 minutes to fall asleep. This can all be helped when you find yourself a comfortable mattress. Between that and a few healthy life changes, you can be well on your way to getting better sleep.
