The Life-Changing Benefits of an Ergonomic Bed
This guest blog post was curated for Bucky by Jackie Edwards.
92% of people consider a comfortable mattress to be essential for a good night’s sleep, yet many fail to find the right bed for them. In the same way you might consider tailoring your clothes to fit your body, you can also do the same with your bed. Ergonomics involves designing products to fit human biology. Since sleep is such an important component of health, creating a bed to optimize sleep should be a top priority for everyone. It will improve energy levels, concentration and physical and mental wellbeing. Here is how an ergonomic bed could change your life.
It Could Relieve Pain and Heal Injuries
Rest is the time for strengthening different parts of the body, whether it’s consolidating memories in the brain, increasing muscle mass or recovering from injury. The role of ergonomics historically has been to put as little strain on the body as possible, so that you can get a full night of rest. This will allow you to exercise more throughout the day and keep you fit.
If you are living with chronic back pain, then a soft mattress could make things worse. You need something with proper support so that your injured back isn’t under strain during the night. Ergonomic beds provide the perfect level of support to most effectively manage aches in the body.
It is the Key to a Productive Work Life
If you like to work hard, then you need to find the best bed possible and optimize your sleep. Highly productive people often don’t like to sleep because they want more hours in the day to work. However, without adequate sleep, you won’t be able to focus and your work rate will be slow.
By investing in an ergonomic bed, you are investing in your productivity. A comfortable bed will allow you to quickly drift into a deep sleep, meaning that you spend less time tossing and turning and ultimately require fewer hours to feel fully refreshed. In the morning, you will be ready to get stuck into work
A Third Of Your Life is Spent in Bed
If you are achieving the recommended eight hours of sleep a night, and factor in all the other times spent in bed, then over a third of your life will occur on a mattress. Therefore, it makes little sense to own anything other than the absolute best. In the same way you put plenty of effort into finding the perfect house, selecting a mattress should take time. It should be built around your body specifications to provide the ultimate support and comfort. By choosing an ergonomic bed, you are improving the quality of 33% of your life.
Investing in sleep means investing in every aspect of your health, wellbeing, and productivity. However, you need the right tools for the job. The mattress is the foundation of all rest, but many people are using one which interrupts sound sleep. An ergonomic bed will be structured for your body, meaning that you can get the most out of this crucial part of the day.
