Quick Tip: Travel on Your Sleep Side

Working less and doing more requires enough sleep!

When taking a red-eye plane, train, or bus, many people bring a travel pillow to sleep. But there's a twist. We often prefer to sleep on one side or the other. Choose a seat on the left or right side of the vehicle so when you lean against the pillow, you're leaning into your preferred sleeping side. I don't know why it makes so much difference, but it does. I sleep on my left side. Put me in the right side of a vehicle and I stay awake, even with lots of travel pillow goodness. Put me in the left and I can drift off. So grab yourself a travel pillow, choose your sleep side, and enjoy your dreams!
