Hi! My name is Amanda and I'm an editor/writer. I'm fond of detective stories. Love my cat.


Hey, past me! Can you believe it's been two years already? I remember how much I adored the pour-over coffee machines back then. But guess what? I've since ventured into the world of Nespresso machines, and it's been a game-changer! It's remarkable how a change in coffee machines can elevate the daily coffee routine. And tea pots for the tea lovers? Well, they're a delightful addition too! Funny how tastes evolve over time, isn't it? If you're ever considering a switch, check out the best Nespresso machines; you might just find your new favorite brew buddy! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/7-best-nespresso-machines-discover-cream-crop-anastasia-shishkina-ff4mc

Thanks a lot for such a comprehensive suggestion! I'd like to add that for coffee lovers (like me, ha-ha), it would be nice to have a reliable coffee machine, my favorites are pour over coffee  machines (like those mentioned: https://www.coffee-statistics.com/best-pour-over-coffee-maker/). And maybe add some tea pots for tea lovers as well! 



The reason people with arthritis are more likely to have sleep issues is likely due to several issues. Your levels of cortisol, a hormone that helps control inflammation, are lower at night. Lying down can cause inflammatory chemicals to pool in the fluid that cushions your joints, which makes them stiffen up. And your perception of pain may be heightened during the nighttime because you’re not distracted by anything else.

But just because painsomnia is normal and common doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Like Lackey, you have to find what works for you to help you get your rest. We talked to people with arthritis about the tricks they’ve learned for getting a good night’s sleep.

1. Sleep with a thin pillow
“Sleep problems were actually how I discovered I have osteoarthritis in my neck,” says Nancy B., 52, of Gig Harbor, Washington. For years, all she knew was that lifting her head, even a little, caused terrible pain and a night of no sleep. To keep her neck straight, she slept with the thinnest pillow possible. Last year she started having neck spasms, which lead her to get diagnosed with arthritis. “I’ve had to change a lot of things since my diagnosis, but the flat pillow has stayed. People think I’m weird when they see my sad little pillow — it’s actually a pillow designed for backpacking — but it’s the only way I can sleep without my neck hurting,” she explains.

2. Use a neck roll or towel
When Nancy’s neck is particularly painful, making it so she can’t sleep, she has a small foam neck roll that she places at the base of her neck when she lies down. “The trick is to keep my neck as straight as possible while I sleep so it doesn’t tense up,” she says. She adds that when she travels a small rolled up hand towel can also do the trick.

3. Get creative with your pillows
“When I’m having a bad flare from my rheumatoid arthritis, I put a wedge pillow behind my shoulders, a tube pillow under my knees, and then prop up each arm on a firm bed pillow,” says Elizabeth P., 35, of Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Once I’m in position I can usually fall asleep and stay asleep for at least a few hours.”





That's a very nice article. Thanks a lot!

You've mentioned Honeywell 18155 ( https://www.walmart.com/ip/Honeywell-Permanent-True-HEPA-SilentComfort-Air-Purifier-18155/16563550 )

"Amount of reduction: -55% in winter, -65% in summer"

Its coverage area is about 200 sqr.ft

I'm looking at the other model - HPA300 ( https://houseweather.org/best-air-purifier-for-large-room/#product4 )

Its coverage area is twice bigger.

Question is: will the amount of reduction be lesser or bigger?
