Science says that sleeping in on weekends doesn't really make up for the hours of sleep you lost during the week, and while that may be true, that's not going to stop us from sneaking in a nap or two on a cool Saturday afternoon.
Lately, it might seem like your work hours are longer (or endless), and even when you try to sleep in, your mind's too busy trying to figure out your to-do list for the day. As a result, bumabangon ka na lang din kahit pagod ka pa. In a way, kahit nakakatulog ka, yung quality of sleep, hindi pa rin maganda. Below are some things that might help you get some much needed shut-eye.

Alam mo yung feeling na mali yung tulog mo 'cause you feel some discomfort in your neck? Your pillow might be to blame. To figure out if it's time to buy a new one, try folding your pillow in half and check if it bounces back. Don't underestimate the power of a really, really good pillow when it comes to quality of sleep.
