You are tired, you get up at dark o’clock to start your day. You go to the gym, work, grocery store, take care of the kids, clean the house, tackle a little yard work, cooking dinner; it seems like there’s no end to your to do list, but there is to your energy. Exhausted doesn’t come close to how you really feel. All you can dream about is finding somewhere to lay it down – sleep/nap something that results in you getting a much-needed break.
You decide, “I’m done!” You finally find a nice quiet place, no interruptions, peaceful only to find out … there’s no pillow. Do you still try to sleep without a pillow? I don’t know about you, but no pillow means this rest is not going to be as enjoyable as it could be.
A good pillow is an essential element to getting the best night's sleep possible. Pillows play a crucial role in providing support to the neck and head, which ultimately helps in maintaining a healthy posture during sleep. According to Medical News Today, when a person’s neck and spine are not in a neutral position while sleeping can cause them to awaken, losing time sleeping having an impact on a person’s overall well-being.
I love shopping, but hmmm choosing the right pillow can be a daunting task as there are a plethora of options available on the market. It is necessary to consider the filling, firmness, and size of the pillow according to your sleeping position and personal preferences. For instance, side sleepers may require a firmer pillow to support their neck and spine alignment, while stomach sleepers may need a flatter pillow to avoid straining their neck.
How long do keep your pillow? Let me ask this way, how often do you shop for pillows? The Sleep Foundation based in Washington, DC suggests pillows should be replaced every 1-2 years to maintain hygiene and functionality. In case of allergies or breathing issues, hypoallergenic pillows or those made of natural materials can be ideal.
A pillow, more than bed decoration, investing in the right pillow can significantly impact the quality of sleep and overall well-being. It is vital to consider personal preferences, sleeping position, and quality while choosing a pillow.
