How a New Mattress May Improve Your Health
This may come as a surprise to you, but the most common of health ailments that you are suffering from could be reduced and in some cases alleviated by a new mattress. The body?s ability to relax while you are sleeping is a critical part of the sleeping process.
However, in many cases, the body is unable to relax, while you are sleeping because it is unable to rest in a natural position. How can you tell if you are having this problem? Ask yourself a few questions. Do you wake up still tired? Do you suffer from chronic muscle, joint, and back pains that seem to ease off as the day goes by? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then it may be time for a new mattress.
A good night?s sleep also strengthens your immune system. So, if you are not getting the proper amount of sleep that your body needs, then you may be more susceptible to the flu, colds, viruses, and infections. Loosing sleep also affects your morning. Lack of sleep can cause you to have headaches, and decreased ability to focus.
Although these are common concerns, studies have shown that a lack of sleep overtime could cause high blood pressure, increased risk of breast cancer, increase in weight gain, and an increase in inflammation.
Although stress is an underlying cause for lack of sleep for many people the solution is, as simple as, buying a new mattress. Old mattresses lose their ability to provide adequate support to the parts of the body that need it most, often due to dips, tears, and damaged coils or springs. The right new mattress will cause your body to keep a natural position while you are sleeping, allowing you to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer.
