Hammock: A Good Idea?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I don't know why I'm writing this at 1AM, but, anyway.. Probably because I'm not tired.

 

Anywhoo..

 

I'm naturally a slide-sleeper. I can also sleep on my back, but that's only when I'm totally exhausted.

 

I know I move around a lot in bed. My Dad knows this. Haha. Probably because theres too many pressure points. Also, I tend to nap a few hours in the afternoon, too. Could this sleep issue at night make me drowsy during the day?

 

I've been looking online at alternatives, and I came across this: https://www.amazon.com/Vivere-Double-Hammock-Space-Saving-Tropical/dp/B004YJCP7O/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=indoor+hammock+bed&qid=1619590042&sr=8-1

 

It has 21,000 reviews, and 87% of them are 5-stars. Like, can't argue with that, right?

 

Will that hammock help me? I've watched many video reviews on that product and video reviews on "the right ways to use a hammock". Out of all the people here, one of you guys gotta be using a hammock..

Well according to Fakespot 80% of the reviews are legit, so I would say go for it! What do you have to lose? :)

Just to be in the same boat. You want to buy this to avoid/decrease back problems?

One of the reasons, yeah. I read that it's easier to fall asleep, and on your back, too. I'm normally a side sleeper.

I've tried this 10min video of several back excercises. Even though some might feel dumb, when you got pain, a little twist can do the trick.
It's a in spanish though, but alas the video is pretty straight forward.
 



Can't comment about your initial question. Hope this can help part of your root cause

That's impossible... I'm not a skinny freak. Not heavy either, but I ain't doing that..

Think of it as Yoga. The goal of Yoga isn't the full stretch, the goal is the actual stretch itself. Even if it's a couple of inches, that's the begining of moving the muscle.

I'm 110kilos, about 240lbs

Update:

 

I've been sleeping on this thing for 3 weeks now. I have not one night wanted to sleep on my bed. My back has thanked me. I sleep longer and sounder.

 

There's no worry about falling off, as this thing cacoons you. Like you in your mother's arms. Sort of that feel. You have a barrier on your left, right, and bottom.

I read several videos on YT, about how to sleep in it, correctly. Like they say, don't lay straight on it. Sleep at a 30* angle.

Getting in/out of it? Simple. Just like how you get in/out a normal bed.. Just have to make a little jump when getting out.

 

If anyone is looking at getting one, get this:

Availability is kinda low for some designs, but choose what works best for you!

You sleep on that thing in your house? When I saw the title of this topic, I thought you were talking outside between trees! :D

 

Regardless, glad it did what you wanted it to do and if it really helped your back out, I might have to think about getting one also. I haven't slept in my bed in several years after hurting back. I sleep on a reclining chair, which although doesn't hurt my back, doesn't help it either. If I try to sleep in a bed, I want to lay on side which REALLY messes up my back fast.

Yeah, in my room. One end going into my closet. But I'll shortly move that.

 

Yeah, it really does save your back. It's like sleeping on air, not a bulky mattress. Plus there's no pressure points to keep you up at night.

 

I used to twist and turn and twist in turn all night in bed. In this hammock, I stay in one place. I still move a little, yes, but the hammock kinda restrains me.

 

It should work for you. If it doesn't change you life, you can always send it back. :)

 

Also, the stand is sturdy af... ;)

The hammock is about 9' long, so you will have 0 issues.

 

I had my eye on this for around a year. I just finally got it, because:

 

1. It was in stock finally

2. It was on sale for $100

 

Looked it up just now. It's on sale for $80 (orig $120). Go and get it, boys!

$125 USD for Canada in Tropical color only. Sold other colors available but at least extra 40 on top and long delivery

 

I might have to wait longer.  As Tropical color does not exactly turn me on

I originally wanted the Island Breeze, but it wasn't available. So I just got that one.

 

Found this funny. "$125 USD for Canada" USD doesn't equal Canadian dollar. ;)

Cotton is breathable. One person left it out in the rain, and it was dry by next morning. But, do what you think is right ;)
