Sleep well

Right posture helps for better sleep
Every single people has a natural rhythm that determines how much sleep they need. Recently, doctors and mattress maker found that getting the right amount of sleep can fight illness, make people feel better. An adult should need 8 hours sleeping in average. But, it doesn't mean you'll get up well in the morning.

Even sleep posture can leave you achy if you’re not properly positioned.

The Mayo Clinic says that simple changes in sleep position can take strain off your back. If you’re a side sleeper, use a pillow that keeps your spine aligned by supporting your head so that your neck isn’t held at an awkward angle. Also, when you lie on your side, your top knee drops, pulling down on your back, so place a pillow between your knees to stay aligned.

Back sleepers can place a pillow under the knees to open up the joint spaces in the spine. If possible, avoid sleeping on your stomach because it creates neck strain.
