- Buy a new mattress every seven to 10 years. Flip your mattress regularly to keep the wear even. When testing, pick one that is firm enough to support you, but not too hard.
- Use a non-foam pillow thick enough to support your neck when you lie down.
- Sleep on your stomach, which puts too much pressure on your back. Sleep on your back instead. If that's uncomfortable, sleep on your side with a pillow between your legs to reduce pressure on your back and hips.
