What are the Best Mattresses?
How well is your body aligned during sleep? You might think that this is a ridiculous questions because aligned or not, you think that if you feel comfortable in that position, you will have a good sleep and feel refreshed in the morning. However if you start thinking about the seriousness of this question, you will realize that it is important to have an aligned body during sleep no matter how you sleep because it ensures that our bones are aligned and that our muscles, ligaments, and joints can work properly. When all these are in order, one’s vital organs are in the right position and can function at peak efficiency. Your favorite sleeping position might be causing your body to be misaligned and when this happens you will be vulnerable to various health issues in the long run.
Some people may be curious to know why we get comfortable if our sleeping position is improper with improper sleeping posture? To counter the misalignment the body adjusts itself because our bodies are very adaptive. This means, that if your body is not aligned properly, it will position itself in such a way as to counter any prevailing misalignment. This we can clearly see that when a person only has one leg, the body adapts itself so that after a time the person will be able to move comfortably with disability.
If you experience daytime sleepiness, headache, fatigue, or lack of focus after a night’s sleep, then that is the body’s way of telling you that when you slept the previous night, your body was poorly aligned.
Finding Ways To Keep Up With Beds
One cause of these issues is when your breathing at night is shallow and this is not due to anxiety of any sorts but primarily because you are sleeping in a misaligned body. There are clear and strong connections between body alignment, breathing, and sleep quality.
A Simple Plan: Furniture
Similar to this other type of shallow breathing to an anxious person that deprives the body of oxygen, structural imbalance in the body also affects oxygen intake. When your neck, middle back and lower back are not properly aligned which means that you spine is not in its natural position then your lungs will have a difficult time to get oxygen and so there is no smooth bodily functioning which makes the body relax.
So in our case, we can say that it is important that you maintain a spine-neutral position or straight-out posture. Your structural balance can be affected by the mattress that you sleep on. If the mattress is not appropriate, either too hard or too soft, it can curtail your breathing while sleeping or develop unhealthy structural postures which can be detrimental to good sleep.
When we speak of an appropriate mattress, we are not talking about the firmness of the mattress but its ability to support the right parts of your body correctly
