7 Easy Ways to Wake Up with Less Pain
Try these stretches, bed set ups, and sleep positions to ensure you wake up energized -- not stiff and sore
Prep for sleepYou've got the set up, but there are still ways you can sabotage a restful night. Sleep expert Isaac Eliaz, MD, says to avoid eating two hours before bed, "as the effort it takes to digest food during the night can detract from a restful sleep." Also, he suggests turning off your electronics (computer, cell phone, even the TV) at least an hour before bed so you can more easily relax.
If you're still keyed up, or just don't know what to do with an hour free from technology, Tara Zimliki, certified personal trainer and founder of Tara's Boot Camp, suggests a bath. "This should alleviate some of your aches and pains in the morning and help to give you more energy for the day."
