The Power of Pillows

When you spend nearly 26 years of your lifetime with your head on a pillow, it's important to recognize how important not only the comfort of the pillow, but also the stability and benefits it provides! In this article we’ll discuss the functions of pillows and how many are ideal.

The main function of a pillow is to provide support for your neck and upper back to keep the spine neutral throughout. Improper pillows or placement can lead to neck and back pain and stiffness. This is also why sleeping on your back is the most ideal position.

When it comes to the amount of pillows, interior designers will normally recommend an excess to be put on your bed, but most people only really need two for a good sleep. This can be done by stacking them together if your pillows are the thinner sort to give you neck support. If you have a smaller pillow, it can be placed between your knees to make sure your hips are aligned or under your arms for your shoulders. Overall, the arrangement is whatever is most comfortable for you while keeping your neck aligned!
