Getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night is good for the body, but it may not be enjoyable if your pillow is old and needs to be replaced. If you can bend your pillow in half and it does not return to form, then it is time to buy a new one. Choose a pillow to suit your sleep position (side or back). I write the date on all my pillows so I always know when I purchased them. It is a good idea to use pillow protectors if you have allergies and to help protect from bed bugs.

Before I got to bed every night I give myself a pep talk. I congratulate myself for my days work and then I talk to myself about the work that I am going to do tomorrow. I remind myself that I am worth all of my effort and today is the day to prove it to myself.
This little pillow talk technique usually has me in the right frame of mind to get up and work out in the morning.
