Millions of people have replaced their bed with a quality hammock, and
with good reason: no matter how soft, expensive or comfortable you think
your mattress is, it may be costing you a good night's sleep! You also
should think carefully about replacing your bed with a hammock if you
have back trouble since hammocks offer a different type of back support
than a traditional mattress.
Most beds create tension in your body by allowing your weight to collect
at pressure points. That's why you continuously have to readjust your
body weight throughout the course of the night. All that turning and
moving is time you could be spending sleeping. Hammocks offer equal
weight distribution. While you can sleep on any hammock, the best for a
bed replacement are hammocks that don't have spreader bars - the Mayan,
the Nicaraguan, and the Brazilian hammocks. Each type offers the highest
level of weight distribution and are simple to hang and take down,
allowing you to conserve space in your bedroom.
When you are looking at hammocks as a backup place to sleep, you will
want to try to look at some of the more sturdy hammocks. Some of the
hammocks, particularly the nylon type of hammocks may not offer a
sleeper enough back support to sleep comfortably. Whatever hammock
you choose, hammocks can make great places to chill out or relax.
