Do you use a hammock for sleep?

Too bad summer is ending. Could have set one up in the backyard for (according to this link) deeper and more restful sleep.

@MasterB - the only adaption period for me was the first night but that was more psychological then physical - I was expecting it to be uncomfortable. I do sleep on a carpeted floor with a couple folded blankets under me. By the 2nd night it was all good.

I used to sleep outside on a Pawleys Island rope hammock (with a quilt throw underneath) when it was hot and I didn't have AC. It was heavenly! (It was a quiet neighborhood.)

I love the idea of setting one up inside - I bet if I hooked one up in my husband's man-cave, he'd be all over it.

I do not use a hammock but on a side note I started sleeping on the floor a few months ago, best sleep I have probably in my entire life, doubt I will go back to a mattress. I wake fully rested, before my alarm clock, no pain, stiffness, limbs falling asleep, etc plus I believe my posture has improved.

yes rocking is a great way to reset sleep. I often use sessions of rocking with clients with insomnia (I am a massage therapist) and have gotten great results. I didn't think of a hammock though, I will for sure share this with them. Thanks for the post!

I use a hennessey hammock when I'm camping. Yeah, I'm tempted to try try it indoors, not with a hennessey, though. Very comfy.

Woulda been great to start out in the heat of summer, though. Nice and cool. That becomes a drawback now, you need a pad under you to stay warm.

If I could mount my Sleep Number bed to some rafters, that would be a fine sleeping platform. As it is, I enjoy my custom firmness settings too much to go with a hammock.
