WebMD: The Benefits of a Good Night's Sleep (First 4 Pointers)

Today I came across a great article on WebMD.com with 20 ways to sleep better. Today I'll be starting a series of posts, each sharing four recommendations. The first one puts my addiction to watching The Office on Netflix Instant Viewer to shame...

ENJOY!

20 Tips for Better Sleep (1-4)

1. Ban Blue Light in the Bedroom

Web MD says :"Turn off TVs, computers, and other blue light producers an hour before sleep. Cover any blue displays you can't shut off."

2. Avoid Naps

Web MD says: "if you must nap, keep it brief, 20 minutes or less -- and do it early in the day."

3. Block the Clock

Web MD says: "When you glance at the clock in the wee hours of the night, your sleep will suffer."

4. Try a Leg Pillow for Back Pain

Web MD says: "Mild low back pain may not wake you, but it can disrupt the deep, restful stages of sleep. A cushy solution is to place a pillow between the legs for better alignment of the hips and reduced stress on the low back."

More to come! Happy sleeping!
