It’s a new year and the idea of a fresh start has some people thinking about a new mattress. There is a lot of talk about wellness from nutrition to physical activity around this time of year, and it’s natural that our thought process would lead to a focus on better sleep habits.

In previous posts we talked about setting a sleep schedule and treating sleep like an Olympic sport. There are many benefits to restorative sleep, and co-founder of SpineAlign, Dr. Jason Loth, believes that spinal alignment is where is all begins.  Proper sleep posture can help you sleep deeper and longer, so you can get the sleep you need to have a day that is more energized and with better focus. 

While there are many benefits and reasons why now might be a good time to buy a new mattress and pillow, today we are focused on the first four.

 

Proper Spine Alignment

Proper posture for sleep is not only about being comfortable, it encourages healing and recovery. It’s easier to get a good night’s rest when you are mindful of your position. Your head, neck, and body need to have adequate support. That’s why proper sleep posture begins with sleeping on your side or back, never on your stomach. Making a few simple changes and trying to maintain that position will yield positive results. Even if it takes a few days or weeks to get used to it.

 

The SpineAlign Luxury Hybrid Mattress is a one-of-a-kind sleep system that was specifically engineered to put your body in its most natural, relaxed position to allow maximum recovery and energy regeneration. Using a SpineAlign pillow and/or Luxury Hybrid mattress will ensure that your spine is in proper alignment and helps you achieve sleep in its most natural state. This might help reduce back pain and promote deeper sleep so you wake up feeling refreshed.

 

Less Tension and Stress

Poor posture, injury, disease, and your bedding choices can all be factors that contribute to muscle tension and stress. The result is you waking up in the morning with a sore neck, headaches, and other physical ailments. Your cervical alignment is especially important as you rest each night in order to allow your body to relax, rejuvenate, and heal. We’ve all been stressed and not able to sleep at night and we know how it compounds our feelings of anxiety. When our bodies can relax and be pain free, we are closer to reducing our tension and stress. The right pillow and mattress can encourage this.

 

Better Quality Sleep

All of this leads to a better, quality sleep overall which means that your body goes through all of the REM cycles. Many pillows create unnecessary strain upon the back and neck, which can result in your body not being able to fall into a natural and restful position. If you are uncomfortable during the night or you have pain, you will not have a good quality sleep. Finding the perfect pillow isn’t only about reading reviews, it is about taking the time to adjust a pillow to fit your exact needs. That’s exactly what the SpineAlign pillow does. The fill is a conforming fill, and when combined with the shape and adjustability, it is made to specifically address body posture and overall body function.

 

Better Days Ahead

Sleep is one of the most important roles in your physical health. Sleep deficiency is linked to a range of health issues including diabetes, increased risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and high blood pressure. A good night’s rest will help you maintain your weight, improve concentration and productivity, maximize athletic performance, and can help keep depression at bay.
