#1 Pillows

We all sleep with pillows, and there is nothing wrong with that. The only question is, how many pillows should you sleep on? The correct answer is one. If you sleep on more than one pillow, that is your answer to why you don’t get normal sleep and wake up tired or even hurting. Just one pillow under your head, no more!

#3 Bedtime meal

Eating before going to bed is not only bad because it will affect your figure, but also because it will influence your sleeping ability. That means, you will be unable to fall asleep after you have just eaten. So you should go to bed only after at least 3 hours have passed since the last time you ate.
