How Does a Pillow Influence Your Sleep?
Everyone has a different sleeping pattern which in turn has great impact on the quality and quantity of their sleep. People who stay up till late get used to sleeping for 5 to 6 hours or less as they have to be to start the day on time while those who are early to need 8 to 10 hours a day to wake up fresh and ready for the new day. Some sleep with one pillow under their head while others may sleep with 3 pillows tucked in their arms and some may sleep without a pillow. But have you ever wondered how these sleeping habits influence your sleep and how can you sleep like a baby free from all worries? Here is your guide to understand what your pillow does to you!
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself in your regular your position. You would realize that the head and spine are the most affected regions of your body because of the tossing and turning during sleep. Now ask yourself ‘Why is sleep so important?’ and you would hear yourself say that the body and mind need to relax after the day and need to take a break starting another day. Hence, your pillow must be comfortable enough to provide you with the relaxation. Uncomfortable pillows affect the posture and lead to pain in the neck and back, along with straining the muscles in the neck, back and shoulders. These changes have a significant impact on your overall posture, breathing and moods.
Pillows that aren’t appropriately positioned may also lead to the narrowing of air pipes. These narrowed air pipes cause obstruction in breathing and make you snore, affecting the quality of your sleep. Pillows that are very big in size do not allow the head to be neutral while pillows that are too soft do not support the neck enough.
But how will you know that your pillow isn’t the right one without going into the details? You should know your pillow is the demon if you have been constantly having trouble in sleeping, pain in the neck, back and shoulders or if you wake up with stiffness and headaches.
