How Much Sleep Do We Need?

Like many things it's actually quality over quantity. For example if you sleep eight hours a night and are still really tired in the morning, then you may not be sleeping good. The research shows that the norm is anywhere between 6-8 hours. However I know a couple people that say they get five hours and are fine. So what I have learned is that it really depends on you. If you wake up feeling fully rested and ready-to-go, you're probably getting enough sleep. So back to the quality question; a good neck pillow may be just the trick. The Arc4life pillow may be just the ticket! Visit Arc4life.com for your online selection of cervical support neck pillows, orthopedic pain relief products and Home traction units.

The 90/90 Hamstring Stretch

A really good way to stretch the hamstrings. You can do it seated if you want. The best way is to lay on your back, raising that particular leg up, then straightening the bottom leg making 180 degrees total. Hence the 90/90. Everything connects to the low back, and having tight hamstrings will contribute to low back pain.

"I Always Do Too Much Over The Holidays"

"Don't we all", you might say. Here's the scenario: stay late at work because more holiday orders, cook dinner, help junior with his math homework, get snow tires put on the car, get gifts for a number of people besides just the immediate family, call the driveway guy to see if he can shovel the steps in back too, make cookies for the Christmas party, and do as much as you can before the weekend because you have your husband's Christmas party and your son has a basketball tournament all weekend. All this on top of the usual things. Physically, it might be doable but add in the stress factor, and some neck pains, and it becomes very daunting. Try not to "over-do-it", your body will thank you later. Having a nice, comfy pillow waiting for you will help. Try one of arc4life's neck pillow, you'll be happy you did.

Coffee Nap Anyone...?

What is a Coffee Nap. Basically it’s drinking your coffee quickly then taking a power nap… This gives the caffeine a chance to work, so after that power nap you are more alert. Don’t get me wrong I think it will still help to throw some cold water on your face when you wake up or even take a shower. These seem to be time tested helpers to wake you up. So don’t think you are going to jump out of bed ready to take on the world but it is something Japanesse researchers have found to be true.

All these new terms that are out there these days…tech neck, coffee nap, etc…
