New research from the University of Pittsburgh suggests that the “couch” can help you sleep better than most other places, especially if you’re experiencing symptoms of sleep apnea.
The study, published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, analyzed data from a sample of more than 5,000 adults over a three-year period.
The findings show that the most comfortable place to sleep when you need it the most is the “full-size” bedroom, with a bed for every two people in the family, the researchers said.
In fact, the study found that “couches were the most sleep-efficient location in the home.”
This means that even when you are experiencing fatigue, you can get a good night’s sleep in your bedroom, even if you don’t have a “full” bed, the team said.
The researchers also found that the more comfortable you are sleeping in your “full bed,” the more likely you are to sleep at night, they added.
So, if you want to be a better sleeper, it might be best to consider your home’s layout and the amount of comforts you have.
You might be surprised at how comfortable your bed can be if you know how to put it together, the report found.
