The Benefits of a Good Night's Sleep (continued)

5. Put Your Neck in Neutral

Web MD says: "If you wake tired with a stiff neck, blame your pillow...Your pillow should be just the right size to support your neck in a neutral position."

6. Seal the Mattress

Web MD says: "[Your mattress] can fill with mold, dust mite droppings, and other allergy triggers. Avoid these sleep wreckers by sealing your mattress, box springs, and pillow."

7. Reserve the Bed for Sleep and Sex

No explanation needed!

Web MD also says: "The best sleep temperature for most people is between 68-72 degrees."

8. Set Your Body Clock

Web MD says: "Go to sleep and wake up at about the same time every day" and "Get out in bright light for 5 to 30 minutes as soon as you rise. Light is the most powerful regulator of the biological clock."
