It seems like it's getting harder and harder to get a good night's sleep.
A myriad of distractions are in cahoots, keeping you from getting enough shut-eye.
We're supposed to get seven to nine hours of sleep, but many Americans don't hit that target every night.
Sleep can provide incredible health benefits -- from helping us lose weight to improving our memories, and even making us happier.
So when you're lying in bed with one of these nine common sleep problems, here's what the science says you should do:
Sleeping on your stomach is probably not the best position if you have back pain, though a pillow under your legs can help. If you sleep on your side, try a pillow between your legs to relieve discomfort.

If your pillow doesn't hold its shape, it's time to get a new one.

Your body really does need to be cooler when you sleep in order to get the best rest.
Whether you or your partner are the noisy one, there are interventions you can try to prevent snoring. If you're the snorer, start by avoiding sleeping on your back.
