    Default Sleep Hygiene for the Rest of Us

    Chronic pain and illness play havoc with “good night’s sleep” advice.

    Not a week goes by without an article on good sleep hygiene showing up during my Internet wanderings. I know the recommendations are good ones.

Actually, it’s more than the fact that they don’t work—they’re irrelevant to the life we must lead.

    Here’s a list of typical sleep hygiene recommendations and why they might not work for the rest of us.

Keep following them!)
