Sleeping in a hammock offers a truly wonderful experience, with a lot of benefits you hadn?t thought of. Hammocks are incredibly comfortable, whether you want to just lounge away the day or sleep all night. But don?t take our word for it, scientific studies show that hammocks are great for relaxing in the backyard on a lazy afternoon but also for sleeping the night away. Surprisingly, these study results found that those people sleeping in a hammock entered a deeper sleep state more consistently and faster than those that slept on a traditional bed. Deeper sleep states are essential to achieve optimal health since the body has time to restore and regenerate.
Sleep studies also tell us that we suffer when we lose sleep. Our body?s immune systems, metabolism, and general state of health are compromised. For maximum restorative benefits, we need to sleep deeply. Sadly, millions in the world are sleep deprived. That says that too many of us live our lives exhausted, out of sorts, and in poor health.
With good night?s rest, a person can wake up ready to go — feeling revived and energized. Unfortunately, too many people turn to the aid of alternative sleep aids, like sleeping pills or aromatherapy to sleep well. Most don?t realize that they could achieve this same affect by using something as simple as a hammock.
Sleeping on a hammock can improve anyone sleep ? whether you suffer from daily stress or a more serious sleep disorder such as sleep apnea. Medical studies show that sleep is the best solution for many mental problems, such as depression, anger, and anxiety. Consider the relaxing effects of a back massage or time spent relaxing in a Jacuzzi.
You can gain that same level of relaxation merely by sleeping in a hammock. Traditional beds cause the body to be pressed onto the mattress at certain pressure points, without much give. When sleeping in a hammock, the weight is evenly distributed which creates an environment for the body much like floating. As a result, no extra pressure is placed on the body.
These days many people are giving up their beds in favor of sleeping in hammocks. Many who are sleep deprived have found that this simple substitution gives them renewed energy in their mind, bodies, and spirits. Statistics suggest that more than 10 million people are using hammocks for their night?s sleep.
Therefore, if you have difficulty sleeping and are eager to enjoy a good night?s sleep, think about trying a hammock. While there are many choices, we would recommend the Nicaraguan, the Brazilian, or the Mayan. Each of these hammocks is designed to provide perfect weight distribution and they fit into any size bedroom.
