If you're looking for doctor-approved sleep advice, one tip is to sleep on your back, though only 8 percent of people are back sleepers, according to sleep.org.

"By far the healthiest option for most people is sleeping on your back because it allows your head, neck, and spine to rest in a neutral position," according to the website.

"This means that there's no extra pressure on those areas, so you're less likely to experience pain."

Sunni Goodman, VP of Communications and Customer Experience at US-based Mattress Firm, recommends the Tulo Firm, a memory foam bed-in-a-box for back sleepers.

"It's the perfect mattress for back sleepers as it was created and designed to provide head-to-toe and edge-to-edge firmness throughout the mattress to account for total body support," she says.

As a bonus, low-motion transfer technology means you won't wake your partner when you crawl back to bed after a midnight snack.
