How Important Is A Good Pillow?
No one goes to bed thinking, I hope I wake up in the morning with a stiff neck and feeling exhausted. Sleeping on the right pillow, can make a huge difference in how refreshed you feel, and ready to take on the day.
Did you know that your pillow should be replaced every twelve months? While your old pillow may still provide you with ample support, it may also be harboring mildew, mold, fungus, dust mites and those yucky old skin cells.
Have you ever wondered how important a good pillow is to your quality of sleep? For years, I was so in love with my pillow that it went everywhere with me. I carried it on buses, airplanes, in the car to a friend's house overnight, or while on vacation. But as the years went by it started getting flatter, lumpier, and wasn't providing my neck or back with the support they needed. The result, I started experiencing headaches, neck pain, back pain, and regular fatigue. And I don't even want to think about how many dust mites were using my pillow as a habitat!
So what type of pillow is the right pillow for you? Experts often recommend a thicker, firmer pillow for side sleepers, in order to provide proper head and neck alignment. When sleeping on your side the most important area for support is between your head and your ear. Some say that if you sleep on your stomach, you don't even need a pillow, although that's not the case for everyone. If you'd prefer to have a pillow, but sleep on your stomach, choosing a flatter pillow will help keep your head from being at an awkward angle.
