If you have never slept in a hammock, you are missing an incredible experience and loads of benefits. You will find hammocks to be incredibly comfortable, whether to lounge away the day or sleep all night. New scientific studies show that hammocks are not just great for relaxing in the backyard on a lazy afternoon but also for sleeping. The results from these studies showed that for people sleeping in a hammock opposed to a traditional bed, they hit deep sleep state more consistently and quicker. With this level of sleep, optimal health is achieved since the body has time to restore and regenerate.
Studies have found that people deprived of sleep experience a decrease in their immune system, metabolic functions, and overall health. The body needs this deep sleep to rest and function properly. Unfortunately, millions of people around the world are unable to get a good nightís rest. Not only is their physical health affected, but their mental health as well -- they venture through life tired and grumpy.
With good nightís 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 donít realize that they could achieve this same affect by using something as simple as a hammock.
Using a hammock to sleep in enhances our nightís rest no matter what kind of stress or even sleep apnea we may suffer from. In fact medical research has shown that sleep improves such conditions as depression, rage, and anxiety. As a comparison, think back to how great you felt when you had a massage or spent time in a Jacuzzi.
When you sleep in a hammock, you will gain that same level of relaxation. When sleeping on a traditional bed, the bodyís pressure points are pressed into the mattress, and unfortunately, without much give. However, with a hammock, the weight distribution creates an environment for the body much like floating. With this, no pressure is being placed on the body.
Today, many people all over the world sleep on a hammock and enjoy the benefits from this experience, simply by moving the traditional bed out and replacing it with a soft, cozy hammock. An easy change to a hammock can be a huge change for people suffering from sleeping problems Ė they may experience a physical, mental, and emotional change. Itís estimated that more than 10 million people sleep in hammocks each night.
Therefore, if you have difficulty sleeping and are eager to enjoy a good nightís 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.
