We’ve all been there before. You’re relaxed, ready for sleep. Everything is perfect. You’re cozied up and just about to close your eyes, excited to slip off into dreamland.
And then it begins. Your partner starts snoring. It rattles the bed, feels like it might just shake the whole house down. You jab them with your elbow, roll them to one side, shove a pair of socks in their mouth. Nothing helps. Your sleep is ruined.
Ok, so maybe that’s a little extreme. But snoring can be very disruptive when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, whether it’s your partner or you doing the snoring. And a lack of quality sleep can have negative consequences in many different areas of your life.
There have been many solutions offered for snoring, from machinery to surgery. But they often come with some drawbacks. Machinery is bulky and expensive, surgery is invasive. There are sleep aids on the market that are largely ineffective.
But there is one solution that more people are turning to to help reduce the amount of snoring in their lives. Adjustable beds! Yep, it’s that simple.
Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. This can occur for a number of reasons. Weight, physiology, muscle tone in the throat, alcohol consumption… these are all factors that can lead to snoring. And sleeping on a flat, horizontal plane further increases the likelihood for snoring.
Adjustable bed allow a person to elevate the upper half of the body. This helps relieve the effects gravity has on the air passage and can dramatically reduce the likelihood of snoring. Sure, you can try and prop your body up with extra pillows, but this can be uncomfortable, causing neck and back pain, and it never lasts long once you fall asleep and adjust your position.
We answer a lot of questions about adjustable beds, and in the past people have been hesitant to get one for their home. We are happy this is changing because we think there are many benefits to having one, especially if a person is a chronic snorer.
Suffering from snoring, or any sleep condition, for that matter, can affect a person’s physical, mental and emotional health. That’s why we are so passionate about beds and mattresses. And we believe that adjustable beds can help people finally start getting the sleep they want and need.
We have found that once a person discovers the benefits of adjustable beds, they have a hard time going back. If you or your partner have a hard time sleeping because one of you snores the night away, maybe it’s time you consider finding a real solution.
At M&N Mattress, we have a wide range of sleep solutions, including adjustable beds. And we are always happy to answer any questions a person has. We don’t pressure anyone into anything, but we are passionate about helping people get a good night’s rest.
