There are a number of factors that go into a good night’s sleep, but while many people focus on mental and noise-related issues, they often overlook one of the most important elements: The pillow.
A comfortable pillow can be the basis for not only a good sleep at night, but for comfort and pain management during the day as well. At Cozy Earth, our silk pillows and bamboo pillow cases can provide you with a level of comfort you’ve never experienced before. Let’s look at what a good pillow can do for you, and how to choose them.
Pillows affect your sleep at night, and your comfort during the day. A big part of natural posture and comfort relate to the connection between the neck and the spine, and the pillow is one of the largest individual factors in this alignment.
Things like headaches, muscle aches and back pain can all be influenced by the right kind of pillow. To figure out the best kind of pillow for you, there are a few important factors to consider.
Choosing the Right Pillow
For the most part, the type of pillow you need can be split up into three categories based on the way you spend most of your time sleeping.
- Back sleepers: For people who spend most of the night lying on their back, a flat, thin pillow that offers head and neck support is the best option. Wedge pillows are often perfect.
- Side sleepers: People who sleep on their side need a contoured pillow that provides support. It can be healthy for side sleepers to place a pillow between their legs to help with alignment.
- Stomach sleepers: People who sleep on their stomach will often need less support, so a thin pillow is best. This will stop the head from rising too high, which can put pressure on the neck. Some stomach sleepers find comfort in a pillow under their stomachs to prevent back pain.
Finally, the comfort of a pillow can be a huge deal. Many people’s ability to fall asleep and stay asleep without waking is influenced by their comfort level.
