You may not realize it, but the way you sleep could be affecting the way you live. The angle you rest your head at to the placement of your arms can both play a major part in not only your sleep life, but also your overall health. Over time, if you continue to lay in bed with bad posture, you could potentially get neck pain, sleep apnea, headaches, stomach issues, and so much more.
If you’re looking to prevent these health problems from happening in your future, there are a couple ways to avoid them altogether. There are numerous and proactive ways that you can make sure your sleep is healthy for years to come such as changing your mattress to a Tempur-Pedic or even just adjusting your sleep positions. Take these tips into consideration to help your sleep posture be the best it can be.
1. Sleep on Your Back
Only about eight percent of people sleep on their back, but this is hands down the best way to snooze. When you lay on your back, your head, neck, and spine all align, distributing the pressure appropriately throughout your body. While you should never wake up feeling achy, the only big con of sleeping on your back is snoring. Lying down in such a way can allow for your tongue to block your airway making snoring and even sleep apnea more severe.
Fortunately, there is a solution and it involves a Tempur-Pedic mattress. With the help of an adjustable Tempur-Pedic Bed, you’ll have the ability to position your body upright so you can comfortably lay on your back without being in any danger of your airways getting blocked.
2. Avoid Laying on Your Tummy
One sleep position you should completely avoid as if it were the plague is sleeping on your stomach. Even if it is your favorite way to sleep, it’s time to move on and find a better way. Our bodies are not meant to lay on our stomachs for long periods of time. We’re just not shaped that way, so our body distributes weight awkwardly when it’s essentially upside down, making your stomach, your spine, neck, and back all start to feel strained and stiff.
3. Get a New Mattress
If you don’t think it will be easy to change your sleeping habits, getting a Tempur-Pedic mattress is a great solution. Tempur-Pedic beds are made with Tempur foam, which adapts to your body and conforms to your shape, no matter what position you’re sleeping in. Your body will be able to sink in and be supported in all the right places, giving you personalized comfort.
Whether you have bad sleeping posture or just a bad mattress, picking out a Tempur-Pedic bed to fit your needs will help resolve a good amount of your sleep-related problems.
