How much sleep do we need?
According to experts, at least seven hours.
If I’m tired, will a nap help?
Yes, with a one-hour nap you get slow-wave sleep and rapid eye movement that helps preserve long-term memory and is more refreshing. But a 30-minute nap is better than no nap.
What pillows do you recommend?
For neck pain from sitting at a computer, the jelly neck roll. If you’re missing your partner, the five-foot body pillow.
Who’s most interested in sleep?
Business travelers, by far. Leisure travelers push it. They know they can sleep on the plane.
