Dr Oz: Pillow Support Improves Sleep
Dr. Oz and some of the most eligible doctors had their best advice to help you sleep better at night. Dr. Hooman Melamed told Dr. Oz that we spend about 1/3 of our life sleeping so it is important to be comfortable in order to get the best rest possible. Dr. Melamed said that the more pillows there are, the better when you sleep at night. They are good support for your neck and head, as well as your back and spine and will help you wake up in the morning feeling well-rested. Dr. Melamed said you should literally sleep with several pillows supporting every aspect of your body, including your shoulders, neck, spine and legs.
Dr Oz: Cool Room Temperature Best For Sleeping
Dr. Matthew Samra is a surgeon in New Jersey so he is very busy operating on patients, but he is definitely looking for love! He said one of the most important factors to getting a good night’s sleep is a comfortable room temperature, which should ideally be between 60 and 68 degrees because a cooler temperature actually signals the brain that it is time to sleep. Dr. Samra brought along a little gadget called a bed fan that you can place at the end of your bed to increase the airflow under your sheets and help you sleep better at night. He added that the only time your bed’s temperature should be hot is when you are being romantic.
Dr Oz: Swan Sleep Position
The next eligible doctor to offer his best sleep advice was Dr. David Forsh. Dr. Forsh is a trauma surgeon in New York City and he said there is a wonderful exercise that will help you get a better night of sleep. It is called the swan position and you can do it right in your bed before settling in for the night. Sit on your bed with one leg folded in front of you and the other folded behind you. Then lean forward onto your pillow, gently stretching your hips and back while focusing on your breathing as you try to relax your entire body for a restful night of sleep.
