You spend SO MUCH of your life sleeping - usually around 8 hours a day. That's 33.33333333% of your entire life - you don't dedicate that kind of time to ANYTHING ELSE IN YOUR LIFE. You probably work that much (at least) - but you probably only do that 5 days a week (and you still probably try to wear comfortable shoes and clothes and try to make your work conditions as nice as possible). You spend 8 hours a day - EVERY SINGLE DAY - sleeping in your bed. So why WOULDN'T you try to make that experience as comfy as you can?
You might have been reading that last section and scoffing - "8 hours a day? I WISH. Between work, chores, social stuff, and spending way too much time on the internet, I'm lucky to get 6 hours a night." And that's a mistake (except for the internet part - keep spending as much time on the internet as possible) - you NEED to get 8 hours of sleep per night. You'll be healthier, more productive, have a better mood - AND ACTUALLY LIVE LONGER. Yes - sleep deprivation has been linked to cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's. In short, you need to be sleeping more (and sleeping BETTER).
It took me a long time to come to terms with this, but here goes: bed sheets are hugely important in my life. You spend a huge chunk of your life sleeping in bed, so why not make that sleep EVEN BETTER by getting some comfy-as-hell sheets? It doesn't cost a ton, and you WILL notice the difference pretty much immediately. And once you do, you'll wonder why the hell you were sleeping on those crummy old sheets you got at Target 7 years ago.
And right now, you can get some brand new, insanely comfy sheets for $29.99 (40% off of their original $49.99 pricetag) and/or a pair of comfy pillows for only $37.99 (68% off of the original $119.99):
