    Cleaning your Bed Covers can be easier than you think

    Sure, she gave birth to you, but now she won't let you forget it. When your mom pops over for yet another chat, close your bedroom door. Tell her you have a headache and need a nap. Proceed to binge watch "Orange Is the New Black."

    2. Jump for Joy

    If you haven't jumped on the bed since you were a kid, you've been missing out. It's great cardio, loads of fun and maybe just a teeny bit dangerous (especially if you have a ceiling fan). If

    Better Food Choices = Better Sleep

    All of us have made the mistake of having that last cup of espresso or overeating too close to bedtime and then having trouble falling asleep. Or if we manage to get to sleep, we don't feel rested in the morning because our bodies were so stimulated with caffeine or too busy digesting a big meal to fully relax.

    Nutritionists now know that there are even more correlations than imagined between what we choose to eat during the day and our sleep habits. By making wiser food choices to consume the nutrients needed for overall health, we can actually improve our sleep.

    Wrinkled Like Dogs

    There is absolutely no debate that a good night's sleep is essential to our mental and physical health. Sleep is even vital to our appearance. That's why everyone suggests getting seven to eight hours of beauty sleep to prevent dark circles under our eyes and to produce more HGH (human growth hormone) that helps keep skin thicker and more elastic. But is there a wrinkle hiding in all that beauty sleep?

    The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) warns that sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to an accumulation of wrinkles or sleep lines that etch into the surface of the delicate facial skin.
