There is no denying – and there is even research to prove it – that having a restful night’s sleep will help your back to feel less sore during the day. A night of restorative sleep can have healing benefits and make you feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and less stressed.
If you are someone who struggles to get to sleep, try these simple, but proven tips:
- Take a warm (but not hot) bath which will help your body reach a temperature that's ideal for rest.
- Relaxation exercises, such as light yoga stretches (yoga is also great for helping with back pain) helps to relax the muscles. Do not exercise vigorously, as it will have the opposite effect.
- Avoid using smartphones, tablets or other electronic devices for an hour or so before you go to bed as the light from the screen may have a negative effect on sleep.
- Read a book - as little as 6 minutes of reading can help you to drift off.
Since you spend one-third of your life in bed, your mattress can also go a long way in preventing or alleviating back problems.
The best mattress for back pain is the one that offers cradling comfort while maintaining your spine’s neutral alignment- memory foam mattresses can offer both. These factors are the key to getting a night of restful sleep which in turn relieves overall body soreness, including back pain.
When buying a new mattress for yourself it's useful to look into its firmness, support, and materials. These factors are crucial determinants in choosing the memory foam mattress best suited to you.
Duvalay’s new Easysleep mattresses all consist of supreme quality memory foam to help with relieving back pain. Tried and tested (co-founder, Liz, swears by the latest memory foam innovation), the collection offers both comfort and support to those who suffer with on-going back problems. The premium option, the Easysleep Three, has been upgraded to feature FreshTec, Duvalay's exclusive next generation cooling foam. Not only does the latest innovation help to keep you cool while you sleep, the hybrid design also offers premium support, without forgoing comfort.
For those who suffer with back pain, travelling can be troublesome and pain can often be aggravated with uncomfortable beds and mattresses. But, Duvalay’s mission is to ensure you get a great night’s sleep ANYWHERE. Both their memory foam and FreshTec foam have been integrated into the Duvalay Sleeping Bag and mattress toppers, so you can take a luxury night’s sleep on your next staycation.
