Are Water Beds Good For You?

What is Water Bed?

Water beds have improved considerably since their introduction to the popular bed scene in the 1960s. The first popular beds had a large water chamber contained in a heavy wooden frame. Getting into the bed or moving around on the bed caused water movement or a wave effect. This wave effect was very relaxing but could be irritating when trying to sleep. However, the many benefits of sleeping on water beds have inspired bed designers to produce water beds that eliminate the effect of waves and the difficulty of climbing on the heavy wooden frame.

Doctors seeking relief for bedridden patients recorded the first beds of water in the early 1800s. Letting people “float” on water relieving pressure points and helped relieve pressure sores. People always find the same kind of benefits from sleeping on water beds. Certainly, comfort, relaxation, and the release of pain are the main reasons why waterbeds remain popular today.

Water-filled beds are now manufactured with several water chambers instead of the single water chamber of the first beds. Sometimes the air chambers are combined with water chambers. The effect of waves is eliminated while retaining the original benefits of sleeping on the water. The water mattress molds around the body, thus evacuating the spine. Thus, the muscles relax, the blood circulation is increased, and the blood pressure is lowered. Water beds also require heating, which can be set to the desired temperature. The overall heat that envelops the body also induces relaxation.

People get back pain relief because the spine gets support where it needs it, and because of the heat — no need for a heating pad to relieve muscle tension enough to fall asleep. People with arthritis find that improving blood circulation relieves joint pain from heat and increased blood circulation. For the same reason, people confined to bed for medical reasons do not develop bedsores. In addition, for people with insomnia, the way the water-filled beds conform to the body produces the relaxation necessary for sleep.

A water mattress can reduce these triggers. The vinyl mattress can be wiped periodically to eliminate dust mites and their droppings. Bedding can also be washed. Even the mattress covers can be removed and washed.

The water beds are elegant and easy to access. They are very similar to the box spring mattress placed on contemporary beds. Indeed, the frame rails are made of dense foam rather than wood.

What is sleep?

You probably spend about a third of your life in the state of unconsciousness known as sleep. But what exactly happens while you are sleeping “ZZZ”?

Probably more than you expected, many people do not want to “sleep their life.” You can certainly understand this, but if you don’t get BEAUTY SLEEP, you will lose quality time when you are awake. So when it comes to your sleep, don’t be stingy!

Sleep patterns or wake-wake cycles

Natural pattern of waking that occurs during a 24-hour day is part of your circadian. Your circadian rhythm is regulated by a clock in your brain that makes you sleepy at night and ready to wake up in the morning. Your environment, including your exposure to the sun, helps synchronize your biological clock. Your biological clock regulates your body temperature and many of your hormones.

Most clocks operate on a cycle of approximately 24 hours, but individual clocks vary. When your natural circadian rhythm is disturbed – for example, spending too much time in bed, crossing time zones, or experiencing a few nights of insomnia – sleep can become difficult.

Every day, the body experiences a natural tendency to drowsiness: at night (usually between midnight and 7 a.m.) and again in the middle of the afternoon (usually between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.). If people are awake during these periods, they have a higher risk of falling asleep involuntarily, especially if they have not slept enough.

Conclusion

For most people, a night or two of poor sleep, or even a sleepless night, actually isn’t that bad. As long as you return to a normal sleep schedule in a few days, a good night’s sleep after a few poor ones is usually enough to catch up on your beauty sleep.
