Some of you may say, “But it’s just a pillow!”
Well, guess what. You can solve a lot of issues through your choice of pillow. In fact, you may even find that the benefits do not just present themselves while you sleep.
What are the benefits of using combination sleeper pillows?
Longer and better sleep. You may have slept 6 hours last night. But if you had to wake up every 2 hours or so, that’s not exactly what you’d call optimal sleep. Add to that the fact that 8 hours is still the goal here. With combination sleeper pillows, you can have longer sleep without interruptions. This means that you wake up the next day feeling truly refreshed and well-rested, not the usual tired state you end up in despite just having gotten out of the bed.
Better posture. Did you know that your sleeping position affects your posture? The way your back curves, the way you walk around, the way you stand – all these are pretty much affected by your sleeping position. And one of the things that affect your sleeping position is your pillow. When you use the right kind of pillow, you can make sure that your posture is not sacrificed. It doesn’t matter what position you sleep in. With the right neck, head and spine support, you can maintain better posture both asleep and awake.
Less risks of tension headaches, back pain, etc. Just like your posture, other conditions like headaches and back pain are caused by the amount of support your head and neck are getting while you sleep. Just imagine. Without proper support, your neck and back takes the strain. Some people think that their head often hurts because of stress or other factors. In reality, a lot of people I know who suffer from these conditions admit to not caring much about how their head is positioned when they sleep. By choosing the right pillow, you also minimize the risks of experiencing these health issues.
Reduces snoring. It’s not a 100% solution, but it does minimize the sound well. Because the right pillows allow your head to be positioned properly, it also means that it avoids having your airways blocked as well. This makes it easier to breathe, and lessens the likelihood of the sound of your snoring reaching the neighbors.
Now that you know why you should choose your pillow well, let’s move on to the most important thing – what kind of pillow should you buy?
