An adjustable bed offers a whole variety of benefits when compared to an old-fashioned flat bed (even a flat bed with a memory foam mattress).
Have you ever really considered how much time you spend in your bedroom and in your bed? There's more to most of our beds than just sleeping.
With an adjustable-position bed, you can sit up to:
Drink your morning coffee
Spend some time waking up and planning your day
Plus no more stacking up pillows!
One cheap alternative to an electric adjustable bed is the mattress genie. You can raise your bed to many different positions, and it's a great way to see if you'd like an adjustable bed without spending thousands of dollars.
Other benefits are to raise your upper body to:
Open your air passages (improve your breathing and overall health)
Prevent acid reflux (sleep through the night without antacids)
Relieve pressure on shoulders and upper back (so you can wake up refreshed)
Relieve back pain
Sit up and get out of bed (it's easier to get up when your in the sitting position)
Help prevent snoring (you'll rest better and so will your sleep partner)
You can also raise your legs to:
Help prevent cramping (you won't be up at night trying to walk them off)
Aid in circulating blood from your legs to your upper body and brain (for clearer thinking)
Relieve stress on your lower back (you won't believe the difference this makes!)
How many times have you wanted to watch TV, read a book or just kick back on your bed but the pillows you stacked up just kept falling off or shifting and making your bed uncomfortable?
When everything was stacked just right, it felt great and the increased level of comfort and support made you want to spend more time there.
Now, imagine not having to worry about pillows anymore because you're in your adjustable bed and you can raise your upper body to the "just right" position and get that comfort you were seeking with the stack of pillows.
Many times when you're reading, you'll have to raise your legs slightly to put the book in a better position on your lap. Also, sometimes you'll need to reposition so the light won't glare on the page. You can do all of this with just the touch of a button on your remote control. Can it get any easier than that?
There are many other benefits to be gained, and thanks to memory foam, you can get a good night's sleep on an adjustable bed with a mattress that is able to adjust its shape right along with your adjustable base.
