Getting a great night’s sleep is a vital part in your wellbeing both physically and mentally. Not enough sleep and your body will start to feel the effects with reduced ability to focus and function effectively in the short term. With long term sleep issues, the implications to your health can be far more serious.
Your pillow and how it can affect your sleep health.
The first thing we think about when we look at our bedding is normally our quilt, and for most of us this is where most of the thought behind materials and types goes. While this is a great start to working on your sleep health, what about your trusty pillow?
Finding the right pillow for YOU is the first step to a great night’s sleep. Before you think about what type of pillow, think about the way you sleep. Do you sleep on your stomach, your side or your back?
This can help you choose the correct profile for your pillow, important in ensuring your neck is fully supported while you sleep. Keeping the correct ‘sleeping posture’ while you sleep can help keep your body aligned and help with waking up with less aches and pains.
Choose your type of pillow.
The correct profile can often also help with relaxation by reducing pressure on certain parts of your body, head and neck. It may also aid in being able to breathe more easily, allowing you to wake up fresher after a great night’s sleep.
Look for a low profile for stomach sleepers, medium or high for side & back sleepers (choose which suits your body and preference best).
Materials of pillows vary widely, from polyester blends to premium duck and goose down & feather pillows and everything in between. When replacing your pillow, look for quality materials that will last for a few years with good care, until it is time to replace your pillow again.
