1. Adjustable Beds: The Future of Sleep

    Adjustable Beds: The Future of Sleep

    One of the main reasons that life, as it was 150 years ago, looks so different to us today is the enormous amount of technological advancements that have come along and changed how we live our lives. Instant communication with friends half a world away, traveling across a continent in a matter of hours, and getting anything imaginable shipped right to our door would’ve been inconceivable a century and a half ago.

    Yet, for all these improvements that have made our lives easier over the years, there’s one essential part of our daily lives that hasn’t made any big technological leaps: the bed. Maybe it’s because we’ve been sleeping since the dawn of time and so we assume we have it down pat, but our beds have been essentially the same for hundreds of years: flat, with maybe some spongy material for comfort. A revolution for bed tech is on the horizon, however, and it’s being sparked by one innovative game-changer: the adjustable bed frame.

    Sleep and Your Speedy Recovery

    If you’ve ever broken a bone or had a serious surgery, you know that a doctor’s prescription will often include intensive bed rest. While this sounds like the easiest advice in the world to take, the reality is usually the opposite.

    As it turns out, being confined to your bed (or couch) for a long period of time can start to feel like its own sort of fluffy prison, and the last thing you end up feeling is rested. Spending all day lying down can turn into too much of a good thing, leaving you itching for activity and the outdoors. Add to this the discomfort resulting from your wound, and you’ve got the perfect formula for restlessness and a bad night’s sleep.

    However, it’s important not to get discouraged and just give up on getting the sleep that you need, as getting the right amount of sleep is extremely important for your recovery. When you get a full night’s sleep, on

    Getting Better Sleep During Chronic Pain

    If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from chronic pain, you know that a good night’s sleep is hard to come by. In fact, you might not even remember the last time you experienced a halfway-decent night’s sleep.

    As is the case with most things that disrupt our sleep, the sleep loss resulting from chronic pain often begins a vicious cycle which only makes the source of the pain worse, causing even more sleep loss. If there’s one good thing that comes from recognizing this cycle, it’s that it shows us just how necessary good sleep is for good health.

    When we don’t get at least seven hours of consistent and uninterrupted sleep (as is often the case for those enduring chronic pain), we miss out on some of sleep’s most helpful benefit

    The Complete Adjustable Bed Buying Guide

    In recent years, sales of adjustable power bed bases have grown exponentially. Yet, when it’s time for a sleep upgrade, many people still think only about mattresses. They remain unaware of the big difference in sleep quality that a power bed can provide, mistakenly equating them with hospital beds. With all the technology now infused into adjustable beds, nothing could be further from the truth.

    An adjustable power base gives you the ability to control and tweak the position you sleep in, which can lead to longer and more restful sleep. It can also reduce snoring and alleviate pain. And then there’s the lifestyle perks. Like finally being able to read in bed comfortably with support under your knees.  Or drifting off to a massage every night. Or programming the head of the bed to rise automatically in the morning to help you wake up. And more.

    All in all, an adjustable
