Sleeping consumes 1/3 of our day, hence the importance of sleep to our daily lives. Did you know that pillows can affect our sleep and even our posture? Not all pillows are the same and equal. That’s why it is very important to find the right pillow for yourself.
So how to find the right pillow for you? Here’s a quick guide to help you out.
1. Know your sleeping position
There are three types of sleeping position — the back sleeper, side sleeper, and stomach sleeper. What is your sleeping position? Identifying your sleep position will help you find the right pillow of for you and the proper alignment of your pillows.
A. Back Sleeper
If you sleep on your back, you may prefer a pillow with a thin profile, a cervical pillow or a neck roll underneath your head. It is recommended to have a lower pillow height and adding 1-2 pillows underneath your knees to help ease back pressure.
B. Stomach Sleeper
If you’re a stomach sleeper, it’s highly recommended to have one pillow or no pillow at all to avoid neck strain.
C. Side Sleeper
A thicker pillow can adequately support your head and neck when sleeping on your side. Tucking in a pillow in between your knees will also be a great support for your body when side sleeping.
