Did you know that you spend around a third of your life sleeping? With all this time being spent in bed, you should do your best to make sure that it is as comfortable as possible.
Getting a good night’s sleep also plays a vital role in your overall health. One way to ensure you get a comfortable rest every night, and avoid any aches and pains when you wake up, is to make use of high quality bedding pillows.
Pillow for Spine Health
The pillow that you use actually supports your spine while you sleep, so choosing the right pillow is especially important if you have spine issues. It’s a good idea to hear what your doctor recommends with regards to what pillow you should use.
Placing a pillow under the knees is another well-known way to alleviate back pain.
Pillow Type Based on Sleeping Positions
While many people toss and turn a little throughout the night, most people are either a side sleeper or a back sleeper, and there are studies that show that the pillow you choose should be determined by your predominant sleeping position!
Side sleepers require higher pillow height than for back sleepers, often requiring them to use two pillows if they are using standard pillows.
Stomach sleeping is known to be the most stressful sleeping position for the back and stomach sleepers are advised to use flat pillows if they cannot train themselves to sleep on their back or their side.
Combination sleepers are advised to look for bedding pillows that have different levels of indentation for their different sleeping positions.
Comfort is Key
The comfort of a pillow all depends on what it’s made for, your preference when it comes to the height of the pillow, as well as the type of pillow case you use.
