Memory Foam Pillow Power to the Rescue
Do you toss and turn or wake up with a kink in your neck? Do you get overheated? Your pillows might actually be to blame! The perfect, most comfortable mattress means nothing if you don't have the perfect memory foam pillow to go along with it. You are definitely due for new pillows if it has been longer than 18 months since your last purchase. But don't rush! Pillows are a powerful tool that help aid in your best night's sleep, but the average consumer doesn't put nearly as much thought into their pillow purchase as they should. What memory foam pillow is the right for you?
Ask yourself the following:
What kind of sleeper am I?
Side Sleeper- 63% of American's are side sleepers. Side sleepers typically support their head with their arm, cutting off circulation. Have you ever woken up with pins and needles in your arm? Then you may be a side sleeper! If this is the case, you need a memory foam pillow to support the space between your ear and your shoulder.
Back Sleeper- Snoring and sleep apnea are more prevalent for those who sleep on their back vs. any other position. Back sleepers need thinner pillows to reduce neck tilt when sleeping. Thin and contour pillows are best for back sleepers.
Stomach- Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers need thin pillows in order to reduce neck tilt while sleeping.
Do I snore? Does my partner snore?
90 million American's snore, with men having the highest prevalence of snoring. Many who snore are back sleepers and proper pillow alignment can help to alleviate it.
Once you make you pillow purchase decision, make sure you have the perfect mattress to compliment it. Your memory foam pillows and mattress should be custom to support your sleeping style.
