#3. Snoring

Have a partner that won’t stop snoring? Have them sleep on their side or try a pillow that keeps their head and neck straight. Also, there are special exercises they can do to strengthen the muscles of the tongue and throat.

#4. Leg Cramps

The best way to take care of leg cramps during the night is to get on a routine of stretching before going to bed. You may even want to try taking a yoga class on a regular basis.

#5. Heartburn/Aching Legs

Elevate your legs with a pillow and the venous blood will run downwards of your legs. Also, limit your caffeine intake 6 hours before bedtime and give your legs a nice massage or rub down. Believe it or not, sleeping on your left side prevents your food from returning up into the oesophagus, thus preventing heartburn.
