2. If you sleep in a big bed alone, switch sides every once in a while, or sleep in the middle. Sometimes your brain is conditioned to think you have less room than you really do.

    Note: If you sleep in a big bed all alone, make sure to spread your arms and legs and take as much space as possible to keep the ghosts from joining you in bed.

4. Stick one foot outside the duvet. Keeps you remarkably cooler, and shows you laugh in the face of monsters.


5. Don't eat ANYTHING in bed. No matter how neat of an eater you are, you will always leave crumbs/stains/bits of food/drink in there.

7. If you fall backwards onto the bed and lift your legs, you can turn the momentum into a little backwards roll which looks pretty cool.
