Sleep Studies - Getting A Good Night's Sleep

Apr 10, 2008
You haven't really explored the various ideas that are out there regarding sleep patterns and the reasons for insomnia and other sleep diseases. However, you know that there is something desperately affecting your ability to get a good night's sleep in a negative fashion. Many sleep studies have shown that it has a lot to do with the support you get from your bed and mattress. In fact, a number of people have recently switched to platform beds because the simplicity of their construction provides the right amount of support and makes it easier to catch real zzz's.

Modern bedroom furniture is often not made to last dozens of years as furniture was in the past. Just a few decades ago, furniture wasn't commercialized, and the pieces were handcrafted to last a lifetime. Modern furniture is different, set up for people whose lifestyle and taste changes frequently and not made to last. What this boils down to is that, as parts of the bed like mattresses wear out or frames bend and break, it causes discomfort to the sleeper. Many people deal with this for a long time prior to replacing their furniture because it can be expensive to do so.

Of course, this is not the only problem to affect a good night's sleep. It can also be the type of bed in which you are sleeping. For example, some people cannot distance themselves enough from the outside world, and they feel exposed or easily distracted by noises. Using a four poster canopy bed as a shield against this can provide a disconnect for some that allows them to sleep better and without interruption. For others, however, the opposite is true. Being cut off by the bed can literally cause excess anxiety that leads to lack of sleep. Changing to something simple like platform beds may be the solution.

Some people just need their space. This can be true of a person who sleeps alone or one who has always slept alone and now finds him- or herself with a partner, sharing a sleeping space. The person may feel trapped or cramped in a bed that is not spacious enough for their sleep habits. Purchasing king master bedroom furniture can be a quick solution to this sleep problem, especially if you are used to having your own space and are sharing the bed for the first time. While counselors recommend maximum closeness for couples, sharing a full sized bed when you are used to a queen of your own may be an instant disaster!

Some people are simply restless in their sleep and wake up often due to hitting their heads on the headboard or other silly problems that are easily solved. Upholstered headboards are much less painful and intrusive if you tend to move around a lot at night and will keep you from causing real damage to yourself in the future while also providing a sounder night's sleep. Sleep studies are about more than the diseases themselves that affect sleep - they look closely at other outside factors that can really deprive people of their rest and offer simple solutions for simple problems.
