If you are like the majority of those in America, you are not getting enough sleep most nights. The list of health problems that go along with getting insufficient sleep are legion. Suffice it to say, sleep is to the body what gas is to a car, you can only get as far as the quantity and quality of the gas.
If you have trouble sleeping once you get to bed, then consider what is happening right beneath you – your mattress. Chiropractors say that about every seven years your physiology changes enough such that what was comfortable to you 7 years ago is no longer sufficient. Women have children, bone density is lost, injuries occur, weight is gained, muscle-mass is lost. All these factors and more will influence the support needed and what will make you comfortable at night. When you toss and turn, your body may be telling you that something is wrong – you may be cutting off circulation on too firm a mattress or your back may be out of alignment due to insufficient lumbar support, etc.
Also, even if you have the perfect mattress – don’t forget the pillow. Consider how you sleep – back, stomach, side or a combo of each. Keep in mind that you want your neck in alignment with your spine so get a pillow that elevates your head too much or too little. The pillow isn’t just to cushion your head, it is to keep things lined up correctly to help you breathe, swallow, relax. A $5 pillow will likely not cut it! Consider latex formed pillows as they can keep their shape longer and be used in multiple positions.
