How to choose the right pillow based on your sleeping position

The pillow is not just for comfort. It’s an important device to cradle your head and neck with the aim of supporting the upper part of your spine. Your sleeping position will help determine the right pillow for you.

FOR YOUR HEALTH, YOU’D BETTER CHANGE YOUR PILLOW EVERY 6 MONTHS

Dr. Michael Breus, psychologist, author of Good Night, said: “If you have an inexpensive artificial cotton pillow, change it every six months. If you have a pillow made from memory foam, or if you have a pillow that helps support your body, replace it after about 18 to 36 months “.

Breus recommends two different pillows, one soft and one hard. At the beginning of the week, as the body tends to be comfortable, you will not need much support for your head and neck so you can use the soft pillow. After a stressful day with a computer screen or phone, the muscles in the neck are stretched and need more support. So you should switch to a sturdy pillow on Thursday or Friday night each week.

So, if you are using a cotton pillow, replace it after six months of use to avoid harm to your body.
