When was the last time you had a good night’s sleep? Do you struggle to sleep through the night, and then wake up tired in the morning? The amount of sleep Americans get is similar to sleep amounts from recent decades, but that amount is much lower than the amount of rest people got in 1942. On average, in the 1940s Americans slept 7.9 hours a night. Today, only 59%F of Americans get seven or more hours of sleep at night. The remaining 40% get less than seven hours of rest a night. While sleep figures are largely unchanged according to Gallup polls taken in the 1990s and 2000s, there is no denying that Americans are losing as much as seven hours of sleep a week from our counterparts 60 years ago.
Study after study shows that getting the proper amount of rest is important for both physical and mental health. While it is easy to attribute the lack of sleep in the last few decades to the increased access to television and technology, Americans must find a way to sleep clear through the night once they do go to bed. Late night and 24 hour television programming, combined with obsessions with laptops, cell phones, and tablets and the ability to spend time on the internet, make it imperative that Americans rest soundly when they are in bed.
For many, getting a good night’s rest is often impossible if you or your partner have medical problems which cause sleeping difficulties. As reported by the National Sleep Foundation, the leading medical issues that prevent sleep are back and neck pain, TMJ, and headaches.
Missing out on sleep can lead to health problems that include obesity, high blood pressure and heart problems. Instead of spending another sleepless night, maybe it is time that you consider purchasing an adjustable mattress and a sleep system bed.
In a regular night of sleep, people who rest well unconsciously keep changing positions to avoid the pain and tension caused by sleeping in uncomfortable ways. If you are unable to easily move during the night, a luxury adjustable bed might allow you to use controls to help you get comfortable and continue resting. An adjustable bed, for example, can allow the top half of your body to be supported like a couch or chair, while still allowing you to remain in bed. King size adjustable beds often come with two adjustable mattress and two separate control systems that allow one partner to adjust the bed position without disturbing the other person.
If you are continually waking up tired or exhausted, it might be time for you to make a necessary investment in an adjustable mattress.
