National Bed Month: How to get the best sleep possible with sleepPRO™
If you’ve ever woken up with a stiff neck or an aching back, chances are you’ve put it down to your sleeping position. But can our sleeping position really influence the way we sleep overall? To find out, we sat down with our resident sleep expert, Stephanie Romiszewski, to get the science behind a good night’s rest.
“We are all unique, so there isn’t just one position that everyone should sleep in” says Stephanie. That means we should all be sleeping in positions that feel comfortable for us as individuals, whether that’s on our front, side or back.
Great advice – but is there anything out there that can give us extra comfort throughout the night?
If you’re stiff from sitting down all day, and haven’t stretched properly or moved enough, this will still affect you during the night because of how still we are when we’re asleep. This means that it can feel worse in the morning, so it’s important to remember to move during the day. Here are some easy ways to incorporate more movement into your daily routine:
If you travel by bus, try getting off a couple of stops early and walking the rest of the way
Go for a walk on your lunch break
If you work at a desk, give yourself a short break every hour for a few minutes. Go for a walk to the kitchen or around the office
Go for a jog or attend a gym class
Try a variety of stretches before going to bed and when you wake up to help relieve any discomfort
What is sleepPRO™?
“Bensons for Beds new sleepPRO™ technology works with your unique sleeping position to ensure you get the right support for you. sleepPRO can “help you find the right mattress firmness for you, so you know you’re not getting sore or aching because of the mattress you’re sleeping on”.
sleepPRO™ is available in all UK stores, and has been designed to help a nation of poor sleepers by allowing Bensons staff to build unique sleep profiles for each customer. This unique system allows people to lay on a personalised mattress which has been built based on a 1-5 scale system (1 being the softest, up to the extra firm orthopedic grade 5).
The beauty of sleepPRO™ is in its exclusively-developed comfort-tracking technology, which uses a pressure sensing surface to record the type of support you need as you move through your favourite sleeping positions.
You own unique sleep profile
Following this process, your unique sleep profile is created. This determines your recommended comfort rating so we can help you choose a mattress that suits you from our extensive range.
