Pillow Talk: Why Your Pillow Height Matters

One thing we know to be true: Getting a good night's sleep is important in preparing our minds and bodies to tackle the day ahead and to ensure that we’re prioritizing a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, quality sleep posture is a part of ensuring quality sleep, and your pillow plays a lead role just as much as your mattress does.

Your pillow’s purpose to support your neck and upper back so your spine stays properly aligned. Without the right kind of support, which varies person to person, stiffness the morning after occurs. Plus, continuous neglect towards your pillow could make repairing issues with your spine, neck, and shoulders more difficult.

Unfortunately, selecting a pillow isn’t as simple as playing a game of eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Depending on your sleep position, here’s what you should consider when you’re in the market for a new pillow.

Back sleepers

Opt for a pillow that’s tall enough to support the natural curve of your neck.

Side sleepers

Opt for a pillow that keeps their neck as straight as possible.

Stomach sleepers

Opt for a pillow that’s thinner, or no pillow at all.

Selecting a good pillow is key because it helps you recover from the pressure your body builds up during the day. It’s no wonder why people fall into bed and let out a sigh of relief. Your bed should be your sleep sanctuary, so equip it with the goods to take you to dreamland in a jiffy.
