Getting out of your warm, comfy bed in the morning when your dreadful alarm rings is already a challenging feat. But the curse of stiff, aching muscles makes it nearly impossible. If you find yourself waking up in pain every morning, you aren’t alone. Many people face the occasional body aches from time to time.
This can be due to a number of reasons, from awkward sleeping positions to a lack of physical activity. However, chronic aches can create a vicious cycle – more pain makes it harder to sleep properly, and low-quality sleep leads to greater pain.
To wake up feeling energised and pain-free, follow these 4 tips that will help to prevent and ease aching muscles.
A good mattress is a long-term investment for your health. As you spend approximately 40% of your life sleeping, a large portion of your time is spent between your sheets. Thus, a good mattress may be one of the most important purchases you’ll make in your lifetime. A good quality mattress is one that firmly supports your body weight and feels comfortable at the same time. The softness of your mattress depends on what you consider comfortable, but it should keep your head, shoulders, buttocks and heels aligned.
For a comfortable mattress that keeps your body supported, hit the hay with our DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ series! Using innovative Advanze Aire Flex™ technology, enjoy comprehensive support and airflow with our renowned DETENSE ArcticSilk® fabric that creates a cooling mattress for a relaxing night’s sleep.
Inflammation in your body can lead to chronic body aches. Unfortunately, inflammation has a long list of potential causes, including eating too much refined carbohydrates, sugar, processed meats and alcohol. As the exact cause of your inflammation may be difficult to identify, eating a generally healthy diet rich in fruits, veggies, and whole grains can help reduce inflammation.
Additionally, consuming more vitamin D can also help to relieve discomfort. Your muscles and bones require vitamin D for optimal function, but most people don’t get sufficient vitamin D through their diet. As such, you may want to speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin D supplement to ensure that you’re getting enough of it.
Sleeping on your stomach can contribute to neck and back pain in the morning, so it’s advisable to avoid doing so. On the other hand, sleeping on your back is considered one of the best sleeping positions, as it places your head and neck in neutral positions. However, it can cause discomfort on your lower back, so consider placing a pillow under your knees to maintain a neutral position for your spine. Alternatively, you can also sleep on your side, placing a pillow between your knees.
Lay down comfortably at the end of the day with our Superior Series Spinal Optima Mattress, made with High-Density Foam to allow excellent energy absorption and proper alignment of your head, shoulders and hips while you sleep. With a Latex Pillow Top included for extra comfort, you’re guaranteed to have the ultimate sleep experience and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning!
Stiff muscles in the morning may be caused by a lack of quality sleep, which shortens your body’s repair time for tissues and cells. One effective way to help you sleep better at night is with regular exercise, which exerts your body and relieves stress. Physical activity also lubricates your joints, which keeps pain and stiffness away.
Break the cycle of struggling to sleep and waking up with nagging aches all over your body. A good quality mattress is key to a comfortable, restful night’s sleep. Choose from our featured mattresses above to receive full support for a satisfying sleep experience. You can also pair our mattress with one of your picks of our storage bed frames to keep your bedroom tidy for a healthy sleep environment!
