Being an adult can be tough but how you sleep shouldn’t.

When we all become adults, our range of responsibilities increases exponentially. We get jobs that turn into careers, smaller homes that get behind for a bigger purchase of a permanent home, and relationships turn to marriage. All of this, as well as tacking on the financial responsibility you get for your cost of living as an adult, as well as the financial responsibilities for your family.

There is a common saying that goes “adulting is hard work”. It’s a very true statement but keep in mind that anything worthwhile always takes hard work. We go through our adult lives being pulled in so many directions, that it is hard to know when and where it can stop. This is a huge reason why adults like us tend to covet the sleep we try to get every night. Getting a solid night’s sleep before taking on another day is one of the truest blisses we have in our lives.

Insomnia

A solid night’s sleep fuels us for the day, it prevents health risks and further mental health issues. It also affects the mood we have throughout the whole day. Without a proper night’s sleep, we tend to loath the world around us. Per the American Sleep Association ASA annual report, it states:

1. 50-70 million American adults suffer from sleep disorders
2. 48% of respondents snore
3. 25 million American adults suffer from obstructive sleep apnea
4. Insomnia is the most common specific sleep disorder. About 30% of adults report short-term problems, while chronic insomnia accounts for 10%.

Insomnia

Insomnia of course is one of the worst things you can experience without a chance to get a solid night’s sleep. You spend the night tossing and turning until your body finally gives up on the fight with your brain, letting you finally drift off to sleep. It is one of many reasons why our sleep each night can be disturbed, but the biggest one is of course snoring. Snoring can affect a couple’s sleep quality, and mental health between you and your spouse, as well as cause complications in your relationship. One of the biggest arguments for this is the fact that the person snoring is completely oblivious to the fact they are sawing logs loudly as if they were working at a Canadian lumber yard.

Your spouse may want to prevent the embarrassment from calling your attention to this or even cause you to feel bad due to ruining their chance at a nice night of much-needed rest. Of course, over time this will cause resentment towards you. It is good to be aware of this right away. If you notice your spouse is continuously tired, ask them if you are the cause of it. Being aware of it sooner rather than later will be a great way to prevent you and your spouse from growing apart. You can even use this as a bonding moment to conquer this habit together.

The biggest thing that will help or even possibly do more harm than good is what you sleep on. Many people have a normal way to sleep such as on a mattress. Sometimes having something on the mattress additionally like memory foam, memory sleep pillows, or even quilted foam for the mattress itself. While these can help, they aren’t the best solution for your adult life. One of the best things you can do for your sleep during your adult life or really during any time is using an adjustable bed base. An adjustable bed base does many things for your health while you sleep. Some of those things include:

• Helping you lighten the effects of back pain
• Alleviating your sleep apnea, asthma, and snoring
• Lowering your chances of acid reflux and heartburn
• Easing your insomnia
• Improving your digestion
• Enhancing your body’s circulation
• Helping you lighten the effects of leg swelling
• Enhancing your lifestyle and furthering your independence physically

Considering those are just a small amount of the things that your body will get from an adjustable bed base, it seems very worth it. Sure, getting an adjustable bed base might be more expensive than the average bed frame or regular mattress, but what you are doing is not only investing in sleeping better but investing in your future health. Little things that affect your health can worsen over time or even cause serious health issues. Preventing those things from happening early will end up paying for the adjustable bed base tenfold.

If you think about it regarding cost and numbers, an adjustable bed base will cost so much less than many visits to the doctor’s office throughout the rest of your life. There is a balance to having an adjustable bed base when you think of it in these terms. You are chipping away at health problems you have, as well you are spending less money having to continuously get help at a doctor’s office. As we all know, going to the doctor’s even once can be a pain, let alone having to go many times.

Another thing to take into consideration with an adjustable bed base and snoring is that it could work wonders to prevent it. When snoring in deep sleep, an adjustable bed base may slowly rise to a certain angle to relieve snoring by breathing smoothly. Also, the head rise and fall speed are less than 1/3 of the normal speed, which will not affect the sleep of the couple in bed together. Having that being taken care of you while you sleep is a wonderful way to prevent snoring without the hassle of going to the doctor and getting evaluated.

The best thing to take away from this is to listen to your body (whether you are younger or older) and make sure you do what is best for you. Sometimes it is hard to know exactly what your body might be saying but taking some measures beforehand will end up setting you up for exactly what you need. Let your new adjustable bed base do that for you now and for years to come.
