Relax More and Sleep Better With A Hammock

June 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 199

Hammocks are more than just some rope and fabric tied between two trees or held up by a stand. They are they symbol of relaxation, bliss and escape. Thoughts of hammocks usually generate scenes of deserted, tropical beaches or of swaying in the shady breeze of a warm summer day in the backyard. So it's no surprise that the popularity of hammocks has grown along with the availability of the differently designs as well as materials used.

Aside from the simple relaxation, there are health benefits associated with sleeping in hammocks. The most obvious benefits stem from generalization of hammocks and the scenes described above - reducing stress. A hammock's gently sway, combined with a warm day and the sensation of your body hanging freely work together to help lower stress, reduce anxiety and alleviate feelings of depression. While not a medical treatment for any disease or disorder, hammocks can evoke feelings of satisfaction and content.

Hammocks also provide a great alternative to a bed. Millions of people in Central America and South America sleep in hammocks without crossbars. These types of hammocks cradle a body and prevent the dreading flipping onto the ground while providing a comfortable way to sleep.

Health Benefits of Hammocks

Because hammocks conform to the shape of a body when it is lying down, they help relieve pressure points a body experiences when sleeping on a traditional mattress. This can allow a person, who may have trouble sleeping, to receive a better sleep. Hammocks are also a great way to alleviate muscle pain or stress.

Some doctors and therapists have begun using hammock chairs in different forms of therapy because the swaying and swinging motion a hammock chair creates can stimulate the cerebral cortex, which can increase a person's ability to focus.

Sleeping in a hammock also elevates the head, which allows for better breathing and circulation of blood. It can also reduce neck pain that is typical of sleeping on a traditional mattress.

Hammocks and hammock chairs can be used for meditation as they allow the body to relax while keeping the mind sharp. Meditation is the practice of concentration, clearing the mind yet being aware of one's surroundings, while sitting, kneeling or lying still. Those who meditate appear happier, more focused and more content than those who do not.

Hammocks can be used anywhere, indoors or outdoors, to provide a comfortable place to sit, lie down or sleep. They are great for small apartments or dorms where a large bed is obtrusive, and they are the perfect companion for the beach. Wherever you use a hammock, you'll be sure to receive the utmost comfort.
