Pillows are Needed

There’s no better feeling than laying down after a long day and feeling the pillow behind your head. Whether you like firm pillows that barely move, or soft pillows that swallow your head, pillows are extremely important to our sleep. Not only can we lose sleep over the wrong pillow, but we can get back, neck, or shoulder pain from the wrong one.

There are certain things about a pillow that everyone needs, like a pillow that naturally keeps the curve in your neck and does not attempt to change it. Other things about a pillow are about the sleep position, back health, or just general preference of the person.

If you sleep on your back, which is actually the best position to sleep, you can be more comfortable with a thinner pillow, or one that has a cervical shape. It could also help you to put pillows under your knees to take pressure off your back. If you sleep on your side, a thick pillow with adequate head support is the choice for you, with a few pillows between your knees to also take pressure off your back. If you sleep on your stomach, which is definitely not the best for you, it's recommended to get a supportive pillow for your neck, and put another pillow underneath your pelvis to support your back.

A big question, however, is do we really need a pillow? The biggest thing not having a pillow is the pain on your neck and back. With no support, your sleep can be disturbed even more with back and neck pain. So yes, we need a pillow for the optimal sleep.
