  2. Sleep with your hands: When you sleep with both hands under your head affects blood circulation and causing numbness in the upper limbs. Therefore, it is not advisable to use both hands as pillows when sleeping.

  3. Quilt cover: Masking yourself up can easily cause breathing difficulties; at the same time, inhaling carbon dioxide exhaled by oneself is extremely detrimental to physical health. Infants and young children should not do so, otherwise, there is a danger of suffocation.
