The perfect pillow is the first step to a good night's sleep. The right pillow can help properly align your neck, spine, and hips by providing the correct head and neck support, which will help relieve muscle soreness and stiffness in the morning. I know what you're thinking, "The sales pitch..." Well... yeah, it's a sales pitch, we sell pillows, but it also happens to be true.
"Pillows affect not only the quality of our sleep but also how well we rest and recharge our health," says sleep expert Dr. Michael Bruce, clinical psychologist and author of Sleeping Beautiful: Looking Younger, Losing Weight, Author of Feeling Better Sleep.
So here we are, sure you want your new pillow now. First of all, how do you sleep? Do you sleep on your side, stomach, or back? This is an important first question because it will help determine your pillow choice. For example, if you're a side sleeper, we recommend putting a pillow between your legs to help align your hips (or better yet, use a body pillow), and for your head, you'll want something with a loft something to fill the gap between your head and your head. Mattress, take the pressure off your shoulders.
Not sure if you need a new pillow? Alright, now grab your pillow, fold it up, and press out all the air. If the pillow doesn't come to life and unfold on its own like it used to, it may be time for a new one.
